Eddie Flynn, con-man turned criminal lawyer, has an impossible choice.
He has damning evidence against a corrupt NYPD detective who stands accused of killing a suspect.
But if he uses this evidence in court, both he and his client - the dead man's widow - will be in mortal danger.
Should he risk their lives to win the case? Or keep quiet and let a murderer go free.
'Everything a great thriller should be and I can't wait to see more of Eddie Flynn.' Mark Billingham
'Jack Reacher's younger, hotter-headed brother.' Irish Times
THE DEFENCE is everything a great thriller should be and I can't wait to see more of Eddie Flynn
Imagine THE VERDICT's Frank Galvin crossed with THE FIRM's Mitch McDeere and you'd get something like Eddie Flynn, the quick thinking, troubled, kinetic lead of Steve Cavanagh's debut thriller ... A deliriously fast and enjoyable ride from the next big Irish crime fiction star. Highly recommended
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 - IRISH TIMES
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
