Steve Cavanagh - The Defence

My debut novel, a new breed of legal-thriller entitled “The Defence”, is out now in the UK and Ireland published by Orion Books. The Defense (US spelling) hits US bookstores on May 3rd 2016 published by Flatiron Books. The Defence is the first in a series of novels set in New York featuring former con-artist and gifted trial attorney, Eddie Flynn.

"THE DEFENCE IS EVERYTHING A GREAT THRILLER SHOULD BE AND I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT EDDIE FLYNN." Mark Billingham

“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. Cavanagh's debut novel introduces a wonderfully flawed hero, Eddie Flynn, one-time con man, now turned lawyer, who will hold you spellbound. This is a hell of a genre-bending book. I hope Cavanagh's working on the sequel.” —Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Radiant Angel

Praise for The Defence

“Steve Cavanagh's The Defense puts the 'thrill' back in 'legal thriller.' Non-stop action, unexpected and totally cool plot twists, a sympathetic genius of a con-man/attorney, and a clock that never ever ever stops ticking -- this isn't narrative drive, it's rocket-like narrative propulsion! Hop aboard and enjoy the ride!” —John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of The Fall and the Dismas Hardy series “Reads a lot like a courtroom drama that Lee Child might write about Jack Reacher's younger, hotter-headed brother.” —Irish Times
