Eddie Flynn used to be a con artist. Then he became a lawyer. It turns out that the two aren’t that different.

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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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

  • “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

  • “A rush of double-crosses, switched detonators, mob maneuvering, and some savvy lawyering. Cavanagh keeps things hopping and writes a fine action scene.”

    Dallas Morning News

  • “Provides everything a reader could ask for in a thriller―nail-biting suspense, a Russian nesting doll of a plot, and an original and compelling lead.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “This audiobook goes from zero to ninety out of the box and doesn’t flag until the end, so fasten your seat belt…Adam Sims gives a bravura performance so at one with the text that you hardly notice he’s there beside you on the edge of your seat.”
