He applied the Page 69 Test to his new novel, Losing Faith, and reported the following:
Page 69 is an important page in Losing Faith. It’s there we learn that the book’s protagonist, Aaron Littman, views Samuel Rosenthal as a father figure, and Rosenthal views his mentee as a surrogate son. We also learn that Rosenthal has long known Aaron’s secret.Learn more about the book and author at Adam Mitzner's website.
My favorite passage from that page is when Sam Rosenthal references The Godfather.

Plausible deniability? But that didn’t seem to work out too well for you, and so it’s time for you to tell me exactly what the hell went on between you and Judge Nichols, and how much of it Nicolai Garkov knows.”
