Book 0.5 in the Eddie Flynn series (2015)
The prequel to Steve Cavanagh’s debut thriller The Defence.
Eddie Flynn, con-man turned criminal lawyer, has an impossible choice.
He has damning evidence against a corrupt NYPD detective who stands accused of killing a suspect.
But if he uses this evidence in court, both he and his client – the dead man’s widow – will be in mortal danger.
Should he risk their lives to win the case? Or keep quiet and let a murderer go free.
While Eddie Flynn was once a conman, once he became a lawyer, he had good moral principles and was starkly determined to succeed in achieving the best settlement possible for his clients. In The Cross, the story unfolds almost in real time as Eddie realizes just what he’s got himself mixed up with.
Somehow Eddie Flynn will have to work his magic whilst under great pressure from bent Police Officers and possibly others. One thing is clear, Eddie is a survivor!
