Product description

Review

"Nasty, vicious, ruthless. That's the way we like our legal mysteries, so The Plea fits the bill...The impressive legal maneuvering pays off in a centerpiece courtroom drama."
--New York Times Book Review

"Cavanagh's fast-paced, action-packed legal thriller is bound to grip John Grisham and Michael Connelly fans with its unexpected turns." --Library Journal, starred review

"A terrific new voice... Cavanagh's blend of courtroom twists and out-of-court action shakes up standard tropes and has real freshness...Cavanagh has a particular talent for escalating tension, and Eddie Flynn is a terrific creation well worth following. There are shades of Michael Connelly's Mickey Haller, but Flynn is also a unique character all his own. The Plea is a propulsive read that'll have you soldered to your seat as the pages whir by." --Mystery Scene

"Criminally entertaining...Perfect for anyone who likes a locked-room mystery wrapped inside a legal thriller on steroids." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"As Cavanagh develops his plot, it's not clear who's conning whom... [The] setup produces some stunning moments, like a car chase directed by cell phone. Plus delicious locked-room and what-the-police-missed detection... The action sequences and the courtroom hijinks make this worth a look." --Booklist

"You can beat him up, arrest his wife, try to acid bomb him, but you can't hustle a hustler... Good courtroom sequences, engaging minor characters, an ornately twisted plot, a repentant but hopeful hero--what could go wrong?...A worthwhile caper." --Kirkus

"Rip-roaring legal thriller...Twisty, bloody, and convincing."
--Ian Rankin

"The Plea is one of the most purely entertaining books you'll read this year. It's a blast."
--John Connolly

"Fast-moving, low-punching, street-hustling adventure... Seriously superior airport read."
--Times Crime Book Club

"If you don't normally read courtroom dramas, you must make an exception. These books are just full of intelligent wheeling and dealing. Top notch storytelling... Superb, in a 'I must not move a muscle til I have finished this book' way." --Northern Crime

"Lively, clever and enjoyable . . . The constant action is interrupted only by absorbing courtroom scenes." --The Times (UK)

"The Plea reads like an idiosyncratic cross between Elmore Leonard and John Grisham, but bursts with its own individual flavour." --The Financial Times (UK)

Praise for Steve Cavanagh's Eddie Flynn series:
"Cavanagh's stellar debut 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

"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

"This guy is the real deal. Trust me."
--Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Steve Cavanagh pulls off an enviable premise with panache."
--Ruth Ware, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Expertly combines his authority on the law with an absolutely great thrill ride."
--Michael Connelly, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Steve Cavanagh is the John Grisham for a new generation."
--Sarah Pinborough, #1 internationally bestselling author

"Smart and original. This is a belter of a book."
--Clare Mackintosh, bestselling author
