Sunday Synopsis

The Plea (Eddie Flynn, #2)The Plea by Steve Cavanagh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have finally found another author of crime thrillers that can keep me happily turning pages in my book. Steven Cavanagh may not be quite as good as John Grisham was in the early days, but he is way better than the last few Grisham's I read. This is the second book in this series, but you don't have to read them in order.

Eddie Flynn is an attorney, but he used to be a con man, so he seems to have some tricks up his sleeves. A rogue FBI agent asks Flynn to represent billionaire David Child who has been accused of murdering his girlfriend. Flynn needs to get him to admit guilt and take a plea so the FBI can uncover a money laundering scheme using an algorithm Child created. If he refuses, or fails to get Child to take a plea, they will implicate Flynn's ex-wife in the scheme. Basically, Flynn is being blackmailed .

The problem is... Flynn is convinced David Child is innocent, and he won't put an innocent man in jail. But can he prove it without causing harm to Child or his ex-wife, not to mention himself.?

This kept me on the edge of my seat. There were several twists and turns, and it was difficult to put it down. Cavanagh writes a compelling legal thriller with realistic characters, so much so that I've already ordered the first book in the series. I have no idea how I started with the second one, but I believe these books can be read as stand-alone novels, too, similar to Michael Connelly's books.
