The Liar: It takes one to catch one. (Eddie Flynn) (English Edition) Kindle电子书
Eddie Flynn is fast becoming one of my favourite fictional heroes and Cavanagh one of my favourite thriller writers (S.J.I. Holliday)
I can't wait to see more of Eddie Flynn (Mark Billingham)
The Plea reads like an idiosyncratic cross between Elmore Leonard and John Grisham, but bursts with its own individual flavour. (Financial Times)
In the crowded field of legal thrillers, Steve Cavanagh stands head and shoulders above the competition, with his skilfully plotted, action-packed and big-hearted Eddie Flynn novels . . . highly intelligent, twist-laden and absolutely unputdownable (Eva Dolan) --此文字指其他 kindle_edition 版本。
Steve Cavanagh was born and raised in Belfast before leaving for Dublin at the age of eighteen to study Law. He currently practices civil rights law and has been involved in several high profile cases; in 2010 he represented a factory worker who suffered racial abuse in the workplace and won the largest award of damages for race discrimination in Northern Ireland legal history. He holds a certificate in Advanced Advocacy and lectures on various legal subjects (but really he just likes to tell jokes). He is married with two young children.

Con-man turned Defence lawyer Eddie is contacted by a figure from his past that he can’t say no to. Lennie Howell made a fortune running a hostage recovery business, but when his own teenage daughter is kidnapped, he’s willing to break all the rules to get her back, and wants Eddie to defend him for it, but when the money drop goes wrong, Lennie finds himself accused of her murder. Meanwhile Eddie’s mentor Harry’s career is at risk from a predatory lawyer who has reopened the case of a young drug addict whose baby died in a fire, and plans to blame Harry for her conviction.
I reckon this is the best of the series so far, as there are so many interweaving storylines that even though I figured out part of the mystery quite early on, I had no idea how it all tied together, and was completely gripped until the end. There are a variety of antagonists from the start, as well as some sympathetic support characters, and lots of surprises. While these are books about a lawyer, and there are courtroom scenes, these are much more exciting than your typical legal thriller, and way surpass any John Grishams I’ve ever read.
The novel is filled with suspense and intrigue and I would definitely recommend it.
