The truth has no place in a courtroom. The truth doesn't matter in a trial.
The only thing that matters is what the prosecution can prove.
Eddie Flynn used to be a con artist. Then he became a lawyer. Turned out the two weren't that different.It's been over a year since Eddie vowed never to set foot in a courtroom again. But now he doesn't have a choice. Olek Volchek, the infamous head of the Russian mafia in New York, has strapped a bomb to Eddie's back and kidnapped his ten-year-old daughter Amy. Eddie only has 48 hours to defend Volchek in an impossible murder trial - and win - if wants to save his daughter. Under the scrutiny of the media and the FBI, Eddie must use his razor-sharp wit and every con-artist trick in the book to defend his 'client' and ensure Amy's safety. With the timer on his back ticking away, can Eddie convince the jury of the impossible?

Over the top but very entertaining
The complex court maneuvers by a savvy lawyer and the extremely fast pace and unpredictability of the plot.
His narration is very well paced and he's able to use different accents and voices.
I'll certainly look for more books by Cavanagh, but I would recommend he make his hero a bit more real and not a superman (smart lawyer, good boxer, friend to judges and mafiosi). The main character is great for a first novel but a bit much all the same.
