Steve Cavanagh was born and raised in Belfast before leaving for Dublin at the age of eighteen to study Law. He currently practices civil rights law and has been involved in several high profile cases; in 2010 he represented a factory worker who suffered racial abuse in the workplace and won the largest award of damages for race discrimination in Northern Ireland legal history. He holds a certificate in Advanced Advocacy and lectures on various legal subjects (but really he just likes to tell jokes). He is married with two young children.

'From the first paragraph to the last, this is a legal thriller you will not want to put down.' * WOMAN'S WAY * A fantastic summer-read, hours lost as the pages turned freely. Steve Cavanagh and Eddie Flynn are names to keep an eye out for. I'll be around for the next one. Guaranteed. * Written by Sime * 'If anything the reviews were giving faint praise - this is a really really impressive debut novel.' -- MF Bailey I was entertained from the turn of the first page until its frenetic ending. It was never a case of will he or won't he succeed it was how. It's the strength of this how that makes the book so engaging and clever . . . a fast paced courtroom thriller that is so much more than a prosecutor, a defence lawyer and a ruthless defendant. This is one book I'd love to see made into a film * MILORAMBLES * It's sharp, clever and a brilliantly executed thriller. And it's not often I write those words. THE DEFENCE is a great debut, and here's hoping there's more of Eddie Flynn to come * RAVEN CRIME READS * It's a book you're not going to want to miss. I finished this last night and ended up dreaming of kidnapped children. That's how good this book is * REBECCA BRADLEY CRIME * Thriller readers, Michael Connelly readers, book readers, pick up THE DEFENCE, I almost guarantee you won't regret it. An addictive read from start to finish and one that I have no hesitation in recommending * BOOK ADDICT SHAUN * Steve Cavanagh manages to pull off not only a terrific courtroom drama, but also a bit of an edge of the seat thriller, some witty and darkly humorous moments and a character you will fall in love with * LIZ LOVES BOOKS * Like Mickey Haller and Mitch McDeere before him, readers will love lawyer Eddie Flynn, the star of this high-octane, hugely entertaining legal thriller. On the evidence of this blistering debut, we'll be hearing much more of Steve Cavanagh -- Brian McGilloway, author of LITTLE GIRL LOST and HURT A full-on thrill-ride that hits the gas on page one and doesn't let up until the end. Steve blends a taut legal thriller with a ticking-clock suspense plot and throws in a great protagonist in the form of Eddie Flynn that readers will want to see again and again. A terrific debut -- Stuart Neville Cavanagh's stellar debut provides everything a reader could ask for in a thriller - nail-biting suspense, a Russian nesting doll of a plot, and an original and compelling lead * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY * Get ready for a legal thriller that'll grab you by the throat . . . Eddie Flynn makes his explosive debut -- Gerard Brennan 'Imagine THE VERDICT's Frank Galvin crossed with THE FIRM's Mitch McDeere and you'd get something like Eddie Flynn, the quick thinking, troubled, kinetic lead of Steve Cavanagh's debut thriller . . . A deliriously fast and enjoyable ride from the next big Irish crime fiction star. Highly recommended' -- Adrian McKinty, author of the Sean Duffy series 'Puts the "thrill" back in "legal thriller". Non-stop action, unexpected and totally cool plot twists, a sympathetic genius of a con-man/attorney, and a clock that never ever ever stops ticking -- this isn't narrative drive, it's rocket-like narrative propulsion! Hop aboard and enjoy the ride!' -- John Lescroart, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author [It] reads a lot like a courtroom drama that Lee Child might write about Jack Reacher's younger, hotter-headed brother . . . This is afoot-to-the-floor thriller that pulls out with tyres smoking and takes no prisoners until it judders to a halt 400 pages later * IRISH TIMES * Part classic courtroom drama in the John Grisham tradition and part Bruce Willis-like action hero fiction straight out of the Die Hard franchise, this is a rip-roaring action-packed and highly entertaining debut * IRISH INDEPENDENT * THE DEFENCE is everything a great thriller should be and I can't wait to see more of Eddie Flynn -- Mark Billingham
