The Defense (Mass Market Paperbound)
"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." --Nelson DeMille, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Radiant Angel
Eddie Flynn used to be a con artist. Then he became a lawyer. Turns out the two jobs aren't all that different. . .
He vowed never to set foot in a courtroom again after a case gone disastrously wrong. But today Eddie doesn't have a choice. Because this time, it's personal.
The head of the Russian mob in New York City, on trial for murder, has kidnapped Eddie's beloved ten-year-old daughter. Now Eddie has exactly forty-eight hours to draw upon his razor-sharp instincts and use every con, bluff, grift, and trick in the book to defend an impossible trial and save his daughter--or die trying. . .
"a rush of double-crosses, switched detonators, mob maneuvering,
and some savvy lawyering. Cavanagh keeps things hopping."
--Dallas Morning News
"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)
This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.
