Writing A Novel #4 I Still Don’t Have A Title Yet

This is a weekly blog which charts my progress, or lack thereof, as I write the fourth book in my Eddie Flynn series.  The “weekly” aspect of this blog has become a little loose. Apologies for not posting last week. I can make it up to you. More of that, anon. I’m just over 10,000 […]

Steve Cavanagh answered a question about The Defense:
The  Defense by Steve Cavanagh
The first book in the series is The Defense. The Plea is the second book in the series. There is a novella, called The Cross, which isn't a prequel really but it is set in a period of time before the events in The Defense take place. Hope that answer See Full Answer

“The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”
Steve Cavanagh, Thirteen

“This was how it had to be. The city centre had to be for all religions, and so the ubiquitous, shinning, grey had quickly become the nascent colour. Whereas the the Ardoyne rejoced in the tricolours and every shade of green, so too the Shankill kept their houses and kerbs in the Union Jack, and each side of the divided city painted their gables and drenched themselves in the rich colours which formed their history, their protection, their identity, their, and they lived under the terrible weight that came with it. In Belfast, colour was joyful, territorial, and frightening. And so the heart of the city embraced a comforting blanket of grey.”
Steve Cavanagh

“Hustling an insurance company was like playing poker with Satan—his house, his rules.”
Steve Cavanagh, The Defense
