The Plea
The Plea | Steve Cavanagh
'A gripping, twisty thriller' Ian Rankin When David Child, a major client of a corrupt New York law firm, is arrested for murder, the FBI ask con-artist-turned-lawyer Eddie Flynn to secure Child as his client and force him to testify against the firm. Eddie's not a man to be coerced into representing a guilty client, but the FBI have incriminating files on Eddie's wife, and if Eddie won't play ball, she'll pay the price. When Eddie meets Child he's convinced the man is innocent, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. With the FBI putting pressure on him to secure the plea, Eddie must find a way to prove Child's innocence while keeping his wife out of danger - not just from the FBI, but from the firm itself.

I struggled to get into this one a bit, but eventually settled into the rhythm of the story. Not my favourite book by this author but enjoyable. A good ending but some annoying over use of 'algo' throughout. I'll stick with Eddie Flynn, great character

I really enjoyed both “Thirteen” and “Twisted” by this author, but this one just didn‘t grab my attention. The plot seemed convoluted and the characters, even though they appeared in the other books and I liked them, didn‘t compel me. ⭐️⭐️

I am posting one book per day from my extensive to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new. Don‘t judge me - I have a lot of books. Join the fun if you want.

Steve Cavanagh knocks it out of the park every single time! Eddie Flynn brings such an entertaining dynamic (former conman turned lawyer) and there's a perfect amount of outlandish (but somehow plausible?) plot twists. I think part of why it feels so authentic, even when it's far fetched, is because Cavanagh is also a practicing lawyer IRL.

Who knew I'd be so obsessed with legal thrillers? Stayed up way past Moxie's bedtime to finish 😂

swishandflick @HOTPock3tt Haha, she definitely was! Though I did get a few side eyes that screamed "why are the lights still on?" ? 2y

I swung by the library this morning to pick up my first physical library hold in a year! 😱

This one wasn't available electronically but I *really* wanted it (bad enough to walk to a location further from my house when it was 17 degrees outside 🥶)

valeriegeary That sun is pretty though! ❄️😎 2y

This second book in the series is a belter. Non-stop action, twists and turns, and an interesting plot make this a great read. Rating: 4 🌟

I won this book on Goodreads. I would have been done with it yesterday, but I am sick. If you like legal thrillers, this book is for you. It is fast paced. Eddie is a lawyer that is know for the hustle. His wife, Christine, is a lawyer that's in trouble with the FBI. His client, David Childs, is up for a murder he didn't commit. FBI wants someone to take a plea. Will anyone? And if so, who? Go get this book and read it. Happy Reading.

Here are two really good crime novels I've read in the last 2 wks but the luca Veste wasn't coming up on the search. Both writers present a wonderful podcast on crime writing and ive found loads of new writers as a result. One is a Liverpool police procedural, and the other a new york based legal thriller

MrBook Cavanagh's good. 👍🏻👍🏻 6y

An excellent legal thriller. Fast-paced (= unputdownable, kids late to school) and intelligent with great characters. Eddie Flynn as the street-smart lawyer is wonderfully dishevelled and endearing with quirky allies; the murder suspects sympathetic and sinister by turn. The courtroom scenes (while dramatised) ring true & are totally absorbing. Highly recommended.

Cinfhen Nice review! I liked "kids late for school" that's the best endorsement for a book ? 6y
Abailliekaras @Cinfhen ha ha! There was a lot of 'mummy, you haven't even made our lunches yet!' 😬 6y
andrew61 I really liked the defence so i will look this up soon. 6y
