Review: The Defence by Steve Cavanagh

Eddie Flynn used to be a con artist. Then he became a lawyer. Turns out 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, had 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, grit and trick in the book, Eddie has only forty eight hours to defend an impossible murder trial. If he loses the case he loses everything.

Ok, so my thoughts on this book is that it was pretty slow, I was introduced to Steve cavanagh when I stumbled upon the book thirteen, I didn’t know when I bought this book it was a series and thought it was brilliant.. not too long after twisted came out and again I found this absolutely amazing and Steve cavanagh instantly became my favourite author and so obviously I had to go out and buy all of his books and read them in order. So here I am at the beginning of my Steve cavanagh marathon.

The defence was good, it definitely had me on the edge of my seat in places but it seemed a bit to much like a long drawn out process for me and I did kind of find myself getting bored in places. I am however still glad I read the book and if I had the choice to go back again I would still buy and read it and Mr cavanagh definitely still remains as my favourite author. I would rate this book ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ out five stars and i am looking forward to starting the plea.
