'This guy is the real deal. Trust me.' LEE CHILD
'Top notch thrills and courtroom drama' SHARI LAPENA
'A terrific writer. He has talent to burn.' DON WINSLOW


The Sandman killings have been solved. Daniel Miller murdered fourteen people before he vanished. His wife, Carrie, now faces trial as his accomplice. The FBI, the District Attorney, the media and everyone in America believe she knew and helped cover up her husband's crimes.


Eddie Flynn won't take a case unless his client is innocent. Now, he has to prove to a jury, and the entire world, that Carrie Miller was just another victim of the Sandman. She didn't know her husband's dark side and she had no part in the murders. But so far, Eddie and his team are the only ones who believe her.


Gabriel Lake used to be a federal agent, before someone tried to kill him. Now, he's an investigator with a vendetta against the Sandman. He's the only one who can catch him, because he believes that everything the FBI knows about serial killers is wrong.


With his wife on trial, the Sandman is forced to come out of hiding to save her from a life sentence. He will kill to protect her and everyone involved in the case is a target.

Review quote

Wow. Steve Cavanagh just gets better and better - this book is genuinely chilling and unnerving at every turn. Couldn't put it down * Sarah Pearse * Brilliantly devious and twisty. Well done, Steve Cavanagh - I inhaled that! * Jo Spain * Steve Cavanagh manages the feat of marrying a genial hero to a white-knuckle plot. Brilliant * Ian Rankin * Witty, razor-sharp proof that the courtroom thriller is in rude health in the UK * Financial Times * There's plenty you won't see coming (and it's all the better for it). This is easily my favourite of Steve's books * Belfast Telegraph * The Accomplice is a cunning, breathless and bloody tale in which nothing is quite what it seems. Steve Cavanagh tells it with such relish you're not sure whether to gasp or guffaw * The Times * Unmissable - 10/10 * Peterborough Evening Telegraph * Book a holiday just so you can take The Accomplice with you * Hot Press * The perfect thriller * CrimeTime's Book of the Month * The maverick lawyer Eddie Flynn faces another thorny case, defending a prolific murderer's wife who stands accused as his accomplice in Cavanagh's new pulsating and scalpel-sharp courtroom thriller * Waterstones Says * If you haven't caught up with Eddie Flynn, what are you waiting for? Another winner, Mr Cavanagh! * CrimeFictionLover * More than once, The Accomplice had me biting metaphorical fingernails * * Steve Cavanagh's Eddie Flynn series goes from strength to strength. The Accomplice is another muscular legal thriller, setting off like a freight train before twisting and turning through a snaky plot. Cavanagh's great skill lies in combining action with courtroom skulduggery; memorably evil villains with shades-of-grey heroes; and the sort of turn-the-page adrenalin that makes him a worthy successor to Grisham. Another triumph * Vaseem Khan * Such a great book * Andrew Child * A twisty plot, compelling courtroom drama and a terrifying serial killer make this next gripping instalment for Eddie Flynn fans unputdownable * Olivia Kiernan *
