24 posts | 25 read | 28 to read
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 forty-eight hours to defend Volchek in an impossible murder trial - and win - if he 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?

5 🌟

Another new to me author and series but I'll be coming back to it sooner rather than later - I really enjoyed Eddie's first outing!

Amazing read! Another great plot involving Eddie Flynn. I was obsessed with his series after reading fifty fifty and went back to the beginning with this novel. Great characters, great plot and an exciting read with lots of twists and turns. Can't wait for the next one. Definitely recommend.

Fast paced legal thriller. Good break from heavy literary fiction. First in a series, so some back story set up throughout.

I am posting one book per day from my extensive to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new. Don‘t judge me - I have a lot of books. Join the fun if you want.

This book is fantastic! Eddie Flynn is a former conman/hustler turned defense attorney and he's about to take on his toughest client yet - a dangerous mob boss who wants him to win an unwinnable trial, while he holds Flynn's daughter hostage as collateral. The stakes are high and the pages turn quick. I was hooked! This is an excellent choice for anyone who's into courtroom thrillers.

Mehso-so

Overall, this was so-so. The bones of a great series are here, I just don't particularly care for the Russian Mob angle. It was also very repetitive and the MC was always able to figure things out or go to superhuman physical feats to get what he needed. I found this to be unbelievable, but I am happy to continue as I hear the series does get better.

🎧 I recently read an interesting review of Thirteen which is the 3rd book in this series. I like to start at the beginning of series. This is book 1 & it didn‘t disappoint. The narrator was a good choice for Eddie. It‘s about a con artist who becomes a lawyer then shortly after he quits his kid‘s kidnapped and he‘s forced to help the Russian mob in a court trial. Eddie‘s not an angel but it‘s clear he‘ll do anything to keep his kid safe. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I brought Thirteen when it was being hyped and realised it was 4th in the series! Even though everyone said you could read as stand alone I just couldn‘t do it.
Good introduction to the characters and good storyline, will read more!

Melissa_J I stared Thirteen and set it aside when I realized its part of a series. I thought I could keep going, but nope, I couldn‘t do it. Must start from the beginning. 3y

This is the first Eddie Flynn MC book. What a fantastic story , almost cartoon like at times. Outrageous plot. And very good. I will read more of S Cavanagh. But , his book Thirteen remains my favorite so far. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

A far fetched yet entertaining action-filled crime novel. Starts off with the well worn “I‘ve kidnapped your family so help me or they die” scenario, but quickly takes off on some unbelievable tangents. Like the main character in 24, Eddie Flynn is having a very bad day! Rating: 3.5 ⭐️

I read this in one day - could not put it down. Smart protagonist, gripping plot and the courthouse setting rings true to life. I love the details of the trial, nicely paced with the Russian mob action. A great holiday read!
