Eddie Flynn used to be a con artist. Then he became a lawyer. Turns out the two aren't that different.
Former con artist turned lawyer Eddie Flynn gave up the law a year ago after a disastrous case, and he vowed never to step foot in a courtroom again. But now he doesn't have a choice. The head of the Russian mob in New York City, on trial for murder, has kidnapped Eddie's 10-year-old daughter: Eddie has to take this case whether he likes it or not.
Using his razor-sharp wit and every con, bluff, grift, and trick in the book, Eddie has only 48 hours to defend an impossible murder trial. And if he loses this case, he loses everything.

"If you're a fan of John Grisham, Scott Turow, and Brad Meltzer, then you will be a fan of Steve Cavanagh's The Defense." (Nelson DeMille, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Radiant Angel)
"This audiobook goes from zero to ninety out of the box and doesn't flag until The End, so fasten your seat belt.... [Narrator] Adam Sims gives a bravura performance so at one with the text that you hardly notice he's there beside you on the edge of your seat." (AudioFile)
He does great accents. His style doesn't distract from the narrative.
It's a good enough listen for the gym. YOu kind of have to suspend credibility as there are many implausible moments. The excellent reader brought it up to pretty good.
