This was one on my most anticipated reads for 2020 and it did not disappoint. I love a good legal thriller, growing up reading John Grisham novels with my dad. Steve Cavanagh is brilliant and writes the most original and addictive stories. Eddie Fylnn returns in his firth book but it can easily be read as a stand alone. In saying that, go back and read the others as they are all fantastic.

Two 911 calls from the same location on the same night. 2 sisters, Sofia and Alexandra find their father, a

Steve Cavanagh has done it again! A remarkable story which will keep you on the edge of your seat (even if you are standing up!) You will not pick this ending, it will keep you questioning everything right up until the end. Truly there is no better title since you spend the whole book tossing up who the killer is, it really is Fifty-Fifty!

Alexandra Avellinohas just found her father's mutilated body. She believes her sister killed him, and that she is still in the house with a knife. She phones 911 and reports the murder.

Sofia Avellinohas just found her father's mutilated body. She believes her sister, Alexandra did it, and that she is still in the house, locked in the bathroom. She phones 911 and reports the murder.

Both women are tried in a joint trial and Eddie Flynn is back, representing one of them. One is innocent and one is

Great to have my current favourite fictional lawyer, Eddie Flynn, back on the pages.

Steve Cavanagh is a master at coming up with premises that hook you just from reading the blurb on the cover. A high profile New Yorker is murdered in his home. His two daughters each make 911 calls from inside the house, at virtually the same time, each accusing the other of being the murderer.

The unusual premise leads to a fast paced story that you do not want to put down.

Mr Cavanagh delivers another cracking

I came across Irish author Steve Cavanagh's name last year when his 2019 novel Thirteen won Crime Novel of the Year at Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival (which - incidentally - I've fantasised about attending someday). He was also touring with a number of other authors I knew so I kept seeing him on social media again and again.

It wasn't until later I realised I'd actually read one of his books - The Liar in 2017 - which I really enjoyed. And of course I heard (only) fabulous

Initial thoughts: honestly Steve Cavanagh always has the most amazing book ideas, as well as the skill to execute them successfully. I really didn’t know who the killer was until the very end, the carefully placed clues throughout the book pointing one way than the next. (view spoiler) It’s such a treat to read Eddie Flynn books and I can’t wait for the next one!

Just finished an early copy of this & as you’d expect- it’s brilliant! Eddie Flynn fans will love it- but you don’t have to have read the whole series first. Loads of twists, suspense, laughs & action- preorder your copy early!

Yet another cracker from the pen of Steve Cavanagh. Eddie Flynn is back on top form. It's a sharp, tense story from start to finish. Which sister killed their father? That is the question asked as both plead innocence and blame the other. As usual there are twists and turns until the book reaches it's very dramatic and explosive ending. Cant get enough of Steve's books. If you haven't read one before I guarantee you will be buying all of them before long. I did
