Publisher's Summary

He’s won every trial. Because he’s behind every murder.

Ambitious District Attorney Randal Korn lives to watch prisoners executed.

Even if they are not guilty.

An innocent man, Andy Dubois, faces the death penalty for the murder of young girl. Korn has already fixed things to make sure he wins a fast conviction.

The one thing Korn didn't count on was Eddie Flynn.

Slick, street-smart and cunning, the former con artist turned New York lawyer has only seven days to save an innocent man against a corrupt system and find the real killer.

In a week the Judge will read the verdict, but will Eddie be alive to hear it?

My opinion on the novel

There are a lot of books I’ve read on Audible and I normally look for suspense and mystery arguments. The Devil’s Advocate has been one of the books I’ve liked most. I didn’t know the author and now I’m very pleased I’ve come to know him. The narrator is outstanding and makes you live each character. Now I look forward to find more books of Cavanagh.

5 1/2 *

Excellent. I love these characters. Eddie has definitely developed throughout the series but I think they have all integrated well into the narrative. Adam Sims, excellent as ever. Miss them already!

Another great read/listen

The plot was sound and the characters solid.
Steve has written a plot based on some real facts and has spun a storyline around them that's totally conceivable.
I really enjoyed this book and the narration by Adam Sims is just superb, breathing life intothecharacters.
I am looking forward to another in this series, if Steve writes more.

This book had you hooked from beginning to end

I'm so glad I bought the audio version because this book is one that you just can't put down, you need to finish it as soon as possible the story is so good and has so many twists and turns. Wonderful characters that take you on a journey with them as you get to know them throughout the series. Adam Sims narration brought the characters to life. I can't wait for the next book in the series. Keep up the great work Steve Cavanagh!

Characters drive interest plots drive pace

if you have not listened to any Eddie Flyn novels you are missing out.

The plot is fast paced but you are held in fear for the characters he places in tangible jeopardy from the start.

You have more concern for the first protagonist skylar in one chapter than the main characters in other books.

That connection to the characters jeopardy makes this legal drama better than most contemporary crime thrillers.

Hard work

Could not get into this book. Slow and unexciting. I skipped the middle chapters and didn't feel like I missed anything.

Where to begin

I am a huge fan of Steve Cavanagh books and once I hear Adam Sims voice in narration I cannot stop listening.
Love the Eddy Flynn team of characters I feel like I know them personally. I thought once the story left New York it would loose its appeal. It did not, it was as good if not better than the other books in the series.

The best

An amazing book from beginning to end. I didn’t want it to end, there were so many twists and turns that made this book too hard to stop listening. The narrator has done a fabulous job.

wow

This would have to be one of the best books I have listened to. I have listen to several books by this author and enjoyed the book from start to finish. Plenty of twists, loved the whole story. Every thing in a book you could wish for.

Always satisfying

Another Eddie Flynn book that has a winning formula. The storyline is a ripping yarn about a crime with racial background at once requiring the suspension of reality but at the same time sufficiently grounded in detail to be interesting.

If I was critical, it would relate to the neat wrapping up of all issues at the end but the fact is that the ride to that point is enjoyable.

Looking forward to the next Eddie Flynn story, particularly with the growth of other characters around him.
