However, as he steps back into his old life, Flynn realizes that the rules of game have changed - and that he is being played. But who is pulling the strings? And is anyone in this twisted case telling the truth...?

Review quote

Plotting that takes the breath away -- Ian Rankin 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
