I received an email yesterday from my editor at Orion to tell me that I’d been chosen as one of Amazon’s Rising Stars of 2015. Well, I was gobsmacked, but sure enough The Defence is on that list, together with a bunch of great debuts that I’ll be checking out this year.

Here is the list in full

The Defence has also been featured recently on Cleo Bannister’s excellent blog – click here – thanks for the great review Cleo. You can check out Cleo’s blog here, and she’s on twitter here.

One final word of thanks to Brian McGilloway – who has read The Defence as says this:

“Like Mickey Haller and Mitch McDeere before him, readers will love lawyer Eddie Flynn, the star of this high-octane, hugely entertaining legal thriller. On the evidence of this blistering debut, we’ll be hearing much more of Steve Cavanagh.”

I’m a huge admirer of Mr McGilloway, as I’m sure you are too. He tore up the New York Times Bestseller list last year and is destined to do so again. Bewteen the Inspetor Devlin mysteries, and the DS Lucy Black novels (Little Girl Lost, Hurt) he’s one of my favourite authors. Made up. Cheers Brian.

More news and a proper post very soon.


And happy 2015!
