Summary

Once a con artist, now a hotshot lawyer, Eddie Flynn's learnt that fast talk and sleight of hand are just as important in the courtroom are they are on the street. That's why Leonard Howell asks for Eddie's help when his 19-year-old daughter goes missing - he needs someone willing to break the rules. But what if the whole thing was a setup from the very beginning? With a client on trial for his life and the body count rising, the only question is which is deadlier - a man who keeps his oath or one who breaks it?

A missing girl, a desperate father and a case that threatens to destroy everyone involved - Eddie Flynn's got his work cut out in the thrilling new novel from the author of The Defence. Read by Adam Sims.

Engaging

A good mix of action scenes and legal scenes that kept my attention. Well narrated. Wasn't so keen on the ending which seemed a bit too contrived.

Great characters..

... which I hope to meet again. Legal labyrinth meets Greek tragedy. Great stuff - thank you!

Another Brilliant Eddie Flynn book

My only regret is that I've now read all four Eddie Flynn books. Hopefully there will be many more in the series.

Objection not quite overruled.

Interesting story and an unusual initial premise, but let down by poor/lazy character development. Some nice twists and turns, but becomes a little formulaic towards the end. The denouement was far fetched.

The narrator does a good enough job, but a couple of the secondary characters sounded quite similar. Made the classic audiobook mistake of reading out all the "he said/she saids". An out-take has also been accidentally left in, immediately followed by the re-read.

A decent enough listen, but no cigar.

Great Listen

Another really good book from Steve Cavanagh. I really like Eddie Flyn, he is a plausible character and I love the twists and turns the book leads you through - I listened to this book on one long journey and loved it.

Another Winner

Extravagant gripping tale. Writer doesn't try and inflict his politics on us and it's got all the ingredients. Holds your interest and comes to a conclusion

Good Story Well Read

This 3rd Eddie Flynn book is certainly worth listening to. It follows the Flynn formula but s few good twists. Narrator again gives a good performance.
