Alex North, author of The Whisper Man
Unpredictable, daring and completely compelling. Top notch writing. If you thought Thirteen was good - and it really was - this is somehow even better.
Craig Sisterson
Cavanagh/Flynn is the best legal tag-team since Connelly/Haller.
Mason Cross
Brilliant - a characteristically twisty courtroom puzzle with some thrilling setpieces.
Mick Herron
Eddie's back! Steve Cavanagh writes the best hooks in the business.
Don Winslow
A terrific writer. He has talent to burn.
Jane Casey
Very clever, darkly funny, moving, fast-paced, and Eddie Flynn is a terrific character.
Jo Spain
Absolutely brilliant. Addictive, clever, pacy. Eddie Flynn is one of my heroes.
Mari Hannah
Steve Cavanagh's writing is intelligent, sophisticated and tense, his plots executed with forensic attention to detail. I can't get enough of Eddie Flynn.
Brian McGilloway
Smart, pacy and keeping you guessing till the very end, this is an unputdownable high-concept thriller from the master of the genre.
Martina Cole
A great read.
Shari Lapena
What a great read - an absolute page turner.
Ian Rankin
Trust me - it will keep you guessing until the very end.
The Guardian
It's a masterclass in misdirection and withholding information that will have you pitting your wits against with author, with courtroom scenes that are second to none: buckle up and read in one sitting
The Sun
A brilliant concept executed with all the sophistication and intrigue we have come to expect from this writer.
Literary Review
Cavanagh can generate tension better than almost anyone else
Financial Times
Steve Cavanagh is currently reinvigorating the legal thriller
The Observer
Fifty Fifty is bucketloads of creepy fun
The Times
...not unworthy of the great John Grisham
A new author to me - why, oh why haven't I read his work before? I wolfed this down
Crime Monthly
As twisty as they come, you'll be switching sides till the end.
The I Paper
Cavanagh is the kind of the high-concept twist and his latest has an absolute humdinger
NB Magazine
Fifty Fifty is hugely entertaining, there's plenty of drama, jeopardy and tension and Cavanagh directs his wry humour at some of the absurdities of the law. Fifty Fifty is a heady mix of brutal murder and judicial shenanigans - delicious and thrilling. Cavanagh has the reader in the palm of his hand.
The Sunday Times
...combines electric plotting with vivid evocations of the impact of emotionally abusive parenting and sexual harassment at work. As a Brit whose thrillers are set in America he's inevitably compared to Lee child, but Cavanagh's books combine whodunnits with courtroom contests, and are reminiscent of Agatha Christie in their penchant for audacious narrative trickery.
Woman & Home
Steve Cavanagh triumphs once again with his ability to twist perceptions and sympathies.
