HE'S WON EVERY TRIAL. BECAUSE HE'S BEHIND EVERY MURDER.

An innocent man, Andy Dubois, faces the death penalty for the murder of young girl. Korn has already fixed things to make sure he wins a fast conviction.

The one thing Korn didn't count on was Eddie Flynn.

Hands down the best book I've read this year. Pacy, clever, steeped in historical accuracy. There's room for wit too. What. A. Ride.

Review quote

A great read! Top notch thrills and court room drama! * Shari Lapena * Addictive, unpredictable and timely (with a truly explosive conclusion). For me, Steve Cavanagh is the new John Grisham. Excellent. * Will Dean * Gripping, twisty and smart. * Jane Fallon * I couldn't put it down ... I envy people who haven't had the chance to read Steve Cavanagh's Eddie Flynn series. it's like a binge worthy box-set in book form. * Philippa Perry * With THE DEVILS ADVOCATE Steve Cavanagh resoundingly reaffirms what mystery fans worldwide already know. He is one of the best thriller writers working today. THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE bristles with dramatic courtroom tension, suspense, intrigue and more twists and turns than a moonlit country road. Not to be missed. * S.A. Cosby author of BLACKTOP WASTELAND and RAZORBLADE TEARS * A blinder of a book. Classic Eddie. All the noir you've come to expect and a plot and a half! That guy just gets better and better. * Imran Mahmood * This is high octane court drama & I loved every heart-racing, nail-biting page of it. * Amy McLellan * Hands down the best book I've read this year. Pacy, clever, steeped in historical accuracy. There's room for wit too. What. A. Ride. * Phil Williams * Steve Cavanagh is a world-class talent. Make this your next read. The Devil's Advocate is another blistering case from Steve Cavanagh's outstanding Eddie Flynn series. Tense, timely and brimming with hard boiled justice, The Devil's Advocate is a thoroughly gripping thriller. Highly recommended. * Adam Hamdy * Previous books in the Eddie Flynn series have won the Gold Dagger Award and The Theakstons Crime Novel of the Year Award, incredibly, however, The Devils Advocate might well be the best novel in the series so far. As usual Eddie is funny, resourceful and smart but in this one he meets his most villainous and intelligent opponent yet. Steve Cavanagh's take on the American system of criminal justice is both biting satire and exciting thriller a combo that makes Devils Advocate the beach read of the summer of 2021. * Adrian McKinty * This is Cavanagh's best yet ... I'm obsessed with Eddie Flynn and this is a masterpiece. * Jo Spain * The undisputed king of the courtroom drama. * Brian McGilloway * Steve Cavanagh now has the same hotshot literary agent (Shane Salerno) as Don Winslow. Not bad for a boy from Belfast. His latest thriller may flirt with the far-fetched, but if you read the first eight pages you'll be hooked. The Devil's Advocate makes your palms sweat and your blood run cold; the terrific trial scenes out-Grisham John Grisham. Meanwhile, in the 21st century, in the land of the free, the death penalty remains a reality. * The Times * Cavanagh is a genius... page-turning stuff * Evening Standard * A great book by a great author. * Martina Cole *
