The Liar

The Liar

A must-read for fans of Lee Child, John Grisham and Michael Connelly. Combining gripping action and ingenious plotting, THE LIAR is the brilliant new legal thriller from the author of THE DEFENCE and THE PLEA.

‘Plotting that takes the breath away.’ Ian Rankin

‘Steve is a fantastic thriller writer’ Mark Billingham

IT TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE…

WHO IS DEADLIER …

Leonard Howell’s worst nightmare has come true: his daughter Caroline has been kidnapped. Not content with relying on the cops, Howell calls the only man he trusts to get her back.

… THE MAN WHO KNOWS THE TRUTH …

Eddie Flynn knows what it’s like to lose a daughter and vows to bring Caroline home safe. Once a con artist, now a hotshot criminal attorney, Flynn is no stranger to the shady New York underworld.

… OR THE ONE WHO BELIEVES A LIE?

However, as he steps back into his old life, Flynn realizes that the rules of game have changed – and that he is being played. But who is pulling the strings? And is anyone in this twisted case telling the truth…?


Praise for race-against-time legal thriller writer, Steve Cavanagh:

‘A gripping, twisty thriller’ Ian Rankin, number 1 bestselling author of Rather Be The Devil

‘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

‘In the crowded field of legal thrillers, Steve Cavanagh stands head and shoulders above the competition, with his skilfully plotted, action-packed and big-hearted Eddie Flynn novels . . . highly intelligent, twist-laden and absolutely unputdownable’ Eva Dolan, author of the critically acclaimed Tell No Tales

‘A cleverly constructed legal thriller combined with a classic locked-room mystery. Eddie Flynn is fast becoming one of my favourite fictional heroes and Cavanagh one of my favourite thriller writers.’ S.J.I. Holliday, author of Black Wood

‘Raymond Chandler could have created Eddie Flynn. THE PLEA is Phillip Marlowe and Michael Connolly’s Mickey Haller combined, with a bit of Jim Thompson’s THE GRIFTERS thrown in. A superb read with a main character destined to be one of the most talked about in crime fiction.’ Howard Linskey, author of The Search

If you like John Grisham, Lee Child and Michael Connelly, you will LOVE the gripping and twisty Eddie Flynn series:

1. The Defence
2. The Plea
3. The Liar

The Plea reads like an idiosyncratic cross between Elmore Leonard and John Grisham, but bursts with its own individual flavour.
