Steve Cavanaugh presents Thirteen
August 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Steve Cavanagh is an Irish author from Belfast and at the age eighteen he studied law by mistake. He is now the international award-winning author of the Eddie Flynn novels. His debut novel, The Defense, was nominated for the Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award for Thriller of the Year, and The Plea won the Prix Polar Award for Best International Novel. Steve is still a practicing lawyer (someday he’ll get the hang of it) and co-host of the chart-topping podcast Two Crime Writers And A Microphone. He has been involved in several high-profile civil rights cases, his Eddie Flynn novels have been published in over twenty countries, he’s married with two young children, and in his spare time he is mostly asleep.
Combining jaw-dropping action, ingenious, brain-scrambling plot twists, and heart-palpitating courtroom drama that only a lawyer could pen, THIRTEEN has all the hallmarks of a bestselling thriller. Set in bustling Manhattan, and told with prose as visceral and gritty as New York City’s dark criminal underbelly, THIRTEEN begins with what appears to be a senseless act of violence. It’s anything but. Disguised as a homeless man, serial killer Joshua Kane murders a postal worker in order to steal a jury summons for a court case dubbed The Trial of the Century in which movie star Bobby Solomon is accused of brutally murdering his beloved actress wife and their security guard. But this open-and-shut case of a love affair gone wrong isn’t so cut and dry to Eddie Flynn. As the trial begins, and with the evidence strong against his innocent client, Flynn and a quirky cast of P.I.s and FBI agents urgently set out to uncover the real killer. As it turns out, he’s hiding in plain sight as juror number thirteen. And he killed to be there.
