#Win Losing Faith by Adam Mitzner

From the acclaimed author Publishers Weekly called "a gifted writer" comes this nail-biting legal thriller in the bestselling tradition of John Grisham and Scott Turow.
Aaron Littmann, the chairman of one of the country's most prestigious law firms, has just been contacted by a high-profile defense attorney, whose client is Nikolai Garkov, a Russian businessman arraigned on terrorism charges for pulling the financial strings behind recent treasonous acts. The attorney informs Aaron that Garkov is looking to switch representation and will pay one hundred thousand dollars just to take the meeting. But Aaron doesn't have any choice, as Garkov is ready to go public with the damning evidence that Aaron and the judge in the high-profile case -- Faith Nichols -- had a torrid affair during another recent case. Filled with suspense, twists, and turns, Losing Faith will captivate legal thriller fans everywhere.

Why I Write Courtroom Dramas
by Adam Mitzner,
Author of Losing Faith
The obvious answer is that I write courtroom dramas because I follow the first rule of writing: write what you know. I've been practicing law for 25 years, and as a result, I know about the courtroom. I like to think that I know about other things too, but there's something about the crucible of the courtroom that makes it irresistible fodder for fiction.
So, putting aside that the courtroom is something I know, here's a list of the real reasons why I write courtroom dramas.
  1. I like to write about good and evil, and the ramifications of the choices people make. Bad choices often lead to a courtroom.
  2. There's no other area in life where people literally sit in judgment of each other. Of course, we figuratively do that every day, but there's something about it being so stark in a courtroom that cannot help but create drama. Also, courtroom stories permit the reader to think like a juror, almost as if the reader has a vote in the outcome.
  3. The stakes are truly as high as they get -- life and death, or at least freedom is at risk -- and I'm fascinated by the lengths to which people will go when pushed to the extreme.
  4. We all have some understanding of how trials operate from television or the movies, but real life is different. In my books I strive to be completely accurate.
  5. There is almost nothing I can imagine that is more terrifying than being an innocent person unjustly accused. And I would put being a guilty person justly accused as number two on the list of things that would terrify me.
  6. The courtroom, like life, is imperfect. The innocent don't always go free and the guilty aren't always punished.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
