Steve Cavanagh - The Defence (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9781409152316
An Eddie Flynn Novel (#1)
Eddie Flynn used to be a con artist. Then he became a lawyer. Turned out the two weren't that different.
It's been over a year since Eddie vowed never to set foot in a courtroom again. But now he doesn't have a choice. Olek Volchek, the infamous head of the Russian mafia in New York, has strapped a bomb to Eddie's back and kidnapped his ten-year-old daughter, Amy.
Eddie only has forty-eight hours to defend Volchek in an impossible murder trial - and win - if he wants to save his daughter.
Under the scrutiny of the media and the FBI, Eddie must use his razor-sharp wit and every con-artist trick in the book to defend his 'client' and ensure Amy's safety. With the timer on his back ticking away, can Eddie convince the jury of the impossible?

"Everything a reader could ask for in a thriller - a nail-biting suspense, a Russian nesting doll of a plot, and an original and compelling lead. . . . This is a tightly-written book with a great plot, interesting characters, and a twist every few pages. It’s one of those unbelievable tales that the author somehow makes us believe. It’s also one of those books that make it easy to root for the good guy without ambiguity” - Amazon Review.
"The Defence is everything a great thriller should be and I can't wait to see more of Eddie Flynn." - Mark Billingham.
"Part classic courtroom drama in the John Grisham tradition and part Bruce Willis-like action hero fiction straight out of the Die Hard franchise, this is a rip-roaring action-packed and highly entertaining debut." - Irish Independent.
'Steve Cavanagh manages to pull off not only a terrific courtroom drama, but also a bit of an edge of the seat thriller, some witty and darkly humorous moments and a character you will fall in love with.' - Liz Loves Books.
"It reads a lot like a courtroom drama that Lee Child might write about Jack Reacher's younger, hotter-headed brother . . . This is afoot-to-the-floor thriller that pulls out with tyres smoking and takes no prisoners until it judders to a halt 400 pages later." - The Irish Times.
'From the first paragraph to the last, this is a legal thriller you will not want to put down.' - Woman's Way.
Steve Cavanagh is an Irish author from Belfast and at the age eighteen he studied law by mistake. He is now the international award-winning author of the Eddie Flynn novels.
