Publisher's Summary

From crime writer Steve Cavanagh comes another gripping audiobook featuring lawyer Eddie Flynn. This is the legal thriller listeners have been waiting for. 

An innocent client. A wife in jeopardy. Who will take The Plea?

Billionaire David Child swears he didn’t murder his girlfriend, Clara. But the evidence overwhelmingly shows that David killed her: the security video showed no one else entering their apartment, the murder weapon was in his car, and he was covered in gunshot residue he can’t explain.

The FBI believes David’s arrest and obvious guilt could help them take down a huge money-laundering scheme - if they can get him to testify.

Con-artist-turned-lawyer Eddie Flynn is given the job: persuade David to plead guilty and give the agents the evidence they need. If Eddie can’t get David to take a plea bargain, the FBI has incriminating files on Eddie’s wife - and will send her to jail. But David insists that he didn’t murder anyone.

As the FBI pressures Eddie to secure the guilty plea, Eddie becomes increasingly convinced that David is telling the truth. With adversaries threatening, Eddie has to find a way to prove David’s innocence and find out if there’s any way he might have been framed. But the stakes are high: Eddie’s wife is in danger. And not just from the FBI....

Fast-paced thriller

Fast-paced thriller. Legal scenes are a mixture of fantasy and authenticity. A hint of Dashiell Hammitt mixed with a lot of Law & Order.

BEST "NEW" AUTHOR I'VE FOUND IN A WHILE!

New to me, that is. Great everything. Had trouble turning it off to go to work. Highly recommend it. Intricate plot, but author never loses you. Very creative. Loved it!
