Eddie Flynn has 48 hours to save his daughter… Eddie Flynn used to be a con artist. Then he became a lawyer.
Turned out the two weren’t that different. It’s been over a year since Eddie vowed never to set foot in a courtroom again. But now he doesn’t have a choice.
Olek Volchek, the infamous head of the Russian mafia in New York, has strapped a bomb to Eddie’s back and kidnapped his ten-year-old daughter, Amy. Eddie only has forty-eight hours to defend Volchek in an impossible murder trial – and win – if he wants to save his daughter. Under the scrutiny of the media and the FBI, Eddie must use his razor-sharp wit and every con-artist trick in the book to defend his ‘client’ and ensure Amy’s safety.
With the timer on his back ticking away, can Eddie convince the jury of the impossible?
Legal thrillers are my blind spot, but I’ll always make an exception for Steve Cavanagh. Quite simply, THE PLEA is one of the most purely entertaining books you’ll read this year. It’s a blast.’ – John Connolly, bestselling author of the Charlie Parker series
