Publisher's Summary

Fraud. Blackmail. Murder. It's all in a day's work for Eddie Flynn.

For years, major New York law firm Harland & Sinton has operated a massive global fraud. The FBI are on to them, but they need witnesses to secure their case.

When a major client of the firm, David Child, is arrested for murder, the FBI ask con artist turned lawyer Eddie Flynn to secure Child as his client and force him to testify against the firm. Eddie's not a man to be forced into representing a guilty client, but the FBI have incriminating files on Eddie's wife, Christine, and if Eddie won't play ball, she'll pay the price.

When Eddie meets David Child, he knows Child is innocent despite the overwhelming evidence against him. With the FBI putting pressure on him to secure the plea, Eddie must find a way to prove Child's innocence while keeping his wife out of danger - not just from the FBI but from the firm itself.

    "Unexpectedly good"

    I bought this as the 'extra' on a two-for-one offer, and found it surprisingly good. The narration is excellent and the plot gripping and entertaining.

    "Brilliant!"

    Great story, Adam Sims is the best narrator, I look for books he has done. Can't wait for the next Eddie Flynn instalment

    "Gives Michael Connolly some competition"

    Very entertaining and exciting with some unexpected turns. Great Courtroom action which to my mind rivals Grisham and Connolly. Loved it

    "Cracking story"

    This was a roller-coaster of a story that was read very well. Took a while to get into the narrators voice but I soon couldn't stop listening. Was disappointed when it ended. Well worth a listen.

    Story
    "Great read , great reader"
    Where does The Plea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best courtroom drama


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just a really good thriller keeps you on your toes


    Which character – as performed by Adam Sims – was your favourite?

    Performed all very well


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Just loved the bit of quirkyness of the conman as a lawyer , really believable characters


    Any additional comments?

    Best book I've read just lately looking forward the next one
