"Cavanagh's stellar debut provides everything a reader could ask for in a thriller--nail-biting suspense, a Russian nesting doll of a plot, and an original and compelling lead." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"If you're a fan of John Grisham, Scott Turow, and Brad Meltzer, then you will be a fan of Steve Cavanagh's The Defense. Cavanagh's debut novel introduces a wonderfully flawed hero, Eddie Flynn, one-time con man, now turned lawyer, who will hold you spellbound. This is a hell of a genre-bending book. I hope Cavanagh's working on the sequel." --Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Radiant Angel

"This is a super, break-neck book."
--Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Steve Cavanagh's The Defense puts the 'thrill' back in 'legal thriller.' Non-stop action, unexpected and totally cool plot twists, a sympathetic genius of a con-man/attorney, and a clock that never ever ever stops ticking -- this isn't narrative drive, it's rocket-like narrative propulsion! Hop aboard and enjoy the ride!" --John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of The Fall and the Dismas Hardy series

"A fresh approach...A rush of double-crosses...and some savvy lawyering. Cavanagh keeps things hopping and writes a fine action scene."
--The Dallas Morning News

"Reads a lot like a courtroom drama that Lee Child might write about Jack Reacher's younger, hotter-headed brother." --Irish Times

"Part classic courtroom drama in the John Grisham tradition and part Bruce Willis-like action hero fiction straight out of the Die Hard franchise, this is a rip-roaring action-packed and highly entertaining debut." --Irish Independent

"The Defense is the best kind of legal thriller, proving that the real drama takes place outside of the courtroom, in the head and the heart. I started reading to see what would happen next, but couldn't put the book down because I needed to learn more about con man turned lawyer Eddie Flynn, the smartest man in the courthouse. I was hooked until the last satisfying page." --Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of The Ex
