3.5 stars

Author
Irish civil rights lawyer. Series of legal thrillers involving New York conman turned criminal defence lawyer (there’s a difference?)

In brief
The ex-Mayor of NYC is brutally stabbed to death in his brownstone. His daughters, and beneficiaries of his will, both call 911, and accuse each other of the murder. Eddie snags the mentally disturbed loser daughter as a client, while a more upmarket hustler claims the respectable socialite one. Eddie might be a rough diamond with a shady past, but he has a moral compass, or believes he has. He also believes his client when she says she’s not guilty. Cue investigation, mucho legal and other shenanigans, a mafioso Jimmy The Hat (I love that name), yada, yada. Guilt remains in doubt until the verdict comes in, and after. Denouement predictably violent, as well as plain predictable.

Writing
Well-paced, suitably twisty, with a regular dose of wise cracks, like every other Eddie Flynn novel.

Bottom line
Another polished genre fiction by Mr Cavanagh, although I would have preferred more of Mr Flynn’s hi-jinks and less of his interior monologues.

A good read

I enjoyed the read. I was desparately wanting to know how it concluded, but didn’t want to miss how he got there.
