Eddie Flynn: Book #1
“This is the second book that I have read/listened to by Steve Cavanaugh. Defense is the first in the Eddie Flynn series. Eddie is a defense attorney and a former con man. The story opens with Eddie who is weighed down by a bomb strapped to his back. His daughter, Amy has been kidnapped. The culprit? Olek Volchek, the head of the Russian mafia. Eddie has 48 hrs to defend Volchek in a murder trial and get a not-guilty verdict. If Eddie fails, he and his daughter will be killed. This is a fast-paced thriller laced with Eddie's keen con man skills and wry humor. The narrator is enjoyable to listen to and nails the Russian accent. This is a great read for a long flight or endless wait at the RMV.”Melinda, Buttonwood Books and Toys
"If you're a fan of John Grisham, Scott Turow, and Brad Meltzer, then you will be a fan of Steve Cavanagh's The Defense." —Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Radiant Angel
Eddie Flynn used to be a con artist. Then he became a lawyer. Turns out the two aren't that different.
In The Defense, former con artist turned lawyer Eddie Flynn gave up the law a year ago after a disastrous case, and he vowed never to step foot in a courtroom again. But now he doesn't have a choice. The head of the Russian mob in New York City, on trial for murder, has kidnapped Eddie's ten-year-old daughter: Eddie has to take this case whether he likes it or not.
Using his razor-sharp wit and every con, bluff, grift, and trick in the book, Eddie has only forty-eight hours to defend an impossible murder trial. And if he loses this case, he loses everything.
