A while ago many friends seemed to be reading Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh, mostly giving it 5 star reviews. I discovered it was part of a well established thriller series featuring con man turned attorney, Eddie Flynn. Intrigued, I picked up The Defence - book number one. Eddie turns out to be a prett Leggi tutto
This is the first thrill ride of a legal thriller featuring lawyer and con artist Eddie Flynn set in New York. I have read the other two, and loved them, and this one is just as great.

I've read three of Cavanagh's books in the past two weeks and The Defense is equally a gripping edge-of-your-seat thriller featuring our hero, con artist turned lawyer, Eddie Flynn. If you like Jack Reacher then this series is a must-read!
like most people, i started this series out of order. i began with book #4, thirteen , when it started to get a lot of attention (and for very good reason). its a fantastic book, so i was excited to go back to where the series began. while i do think this is a great legal thriller, i didnt obsess ove Leggi tutto

His wife left him. He doesn’t get to see his 10-year-old daughter as often as he’d like. He’s got a dri Leggi tutto
What do you get when you combine an outrageous plot, a crafty lawyer, Russian mobsters and a few Mafiosi for good measure? A rip-roaring, page-turning legal thriller that stretches incredulity, but you’re willing to throw plausibility out the window for the sake of the story. Even when our wily hero Leggi tutto
Rivetting Having read Thirteen, I knew I had to read the rest of the series. Sometimes that can be a mistake, but not this time. Right from the first page you get pulled in by the action. As Eddie goes to the rest room and gets a gun pointed at his head. The Russian mafia have a strange way of askin Leggi tutto
My main thought right now: I’m way too attracted to this fictional character. He’s a con artist turned lawyer. He’s charismatic and a genius. He has a way of turning situations around, not through luck but through the workings of his mind. He knows how to play the game. Think Sherlock Holmes. But I m Leggi tutto
