“His face, normally a brighter shade of corpse, turned just a little red.

The Devil’s Advocate is not my first reading of Steve Cavanagh. I have read two of his work previously, with Eddie Flynn as the main and one of my favourite charactrers.

So to say, choosing to read this book, knowing it’ll be good, is a bliss.

Eddie Flynn Book Review : Thirteen + Fifty Fifty by Steve Cavanagh

Frequently asked question about the series.

” Can I read this one without reading the previous book?”

As for Steve Cavanagh’s books containing Eddie Flynn as the main character throughout the series, Yes.

Yes, Eddie Flynn series could be read separately and you could still understand the book without having to read the entire plot series.

But personally, I think it’ll be a fun ride following Eddie Flynn from his very first journey. *said the one who have just ONLY read three of his books*

The story start off with how Eddie Flynn and his team, coping their lives with buzzing activities in their recently start-up legal company. That is until, Eddie’s being recruit to defend the seemingly innocent Andy- who is accused of murdering his co-workers.

One thing I love about the book, is how Eddie and his team are facing fire with fire, fighting with people who truly has power in the country. Moreover, everyone in town seemingly has different opinion in the case opposite with Eddie and that, do not help Eddie’s case at all.

What so captivating about this book, is the way Eddie keep trying to find new leads, proving Andy’s innocent and dragging the bad guys down at the same time.

Politics with politics

Power with power

Strategy with strategy

Trampled evidence against true evidence

What I mean is, this is a book of tension. And also, never-ending rage.

It’s a story of racism and it’s a book about trying to save an innocent soul eventhough the evidence speaks the contrary.

This book is thrilling and enraging because it’s not only about racism and defending but it’s also about proving- saving evidence and convincing the world that the man is innocent.

And when I meant thrill, I really meant it.

Aside from brutal, this book is good at playing your emotions. Goodluck with that.

All I wanna say, is this book worth the try. It might be a little slowburn, but I am well satisfied with the story and yes, the roller coaster emotion this book gets me. Also, you don’t wanna miss out the end of the story.

To sums up, this book is thrilling, enraging and engaging.
