'Everything a great thriller should be and I can't wait to see more of Eddie Flynn.' Mark Billingham'So Hollywood, punchy and cool and pacy as hell.' Eva Dolan Eddie Flynn has 48 hours to save his daughter...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?Praise for race-against-time legal thriller writer, Steve Cavanagh:'A gripping, twisty thriller' Ian Rankin, number 1 bestselling author of Rather Be The Devil'Legal thrillers are my blind spot, but I'll always make an exception for Steve Cavanagh.

Eddie Flynn is fast becoming one of my favourite fictional heroes and Cavanagh one of my favourite thriller writers.' S.J.I. Holliday, author of Black Wood'Raymond Chandler could have created Eddie Flynn. THE PLEA is Phillip Marlowe and Michael Connolly's Mickey Haller combined, with a bit of Jim Thompson's THE GRIFTERS thrown in. A superb read with a main character destined to be one of the most talked about in crime fiction.'
