Steve Cavanagh Wins the 2018 CWA Gold Dagger Award

We’d like to extend a hearty congratulations to Steve Cavanagh, winner of the 2018 CWA Gold Dagger Award

Cavanagh’s award-winning series, featuring conman-turned-criminal-attorney Eddie Flynn, consistently garners starred reviews while delivering legal thrills and razor-sharp wit. The first two books are available now in the US, with THIRTEEN due next summer.

THE DEFENSE
“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, starred review

THE PLEA
“Cavanagh’s fast-paced, action-packed legal thriller is bound to grip John Grisham and Michael Connelly fans with its unexpected turns.” Library Journal, starred review

“Criminally entertaining…Perfect for anyone who likes a locked-room mystery wrapped inside a legal thriller on steroids.” Publishers Weekly, starred review

And don’t miss the next book in the series THIRTEEN, coming out next year–This time, the killer isn’t on trial. He’s on the jury.
