Because I’m truly an obnoxiously huge fan of John Grisham I feel as though I can say that I feel like Steve Cavanaugh channeled him while writing The Plea which is the highest compliment I can pay an author.
The Plea follows our defense lawyer lead, Eddie Flynn as he fights the most difficult case of his life. Not simply because it is the most high profile but because its Eddie’s wife only way to stay out of prison. Eddie is given the impossible task of convincing his billionaire client, David Child, to plead guilty to murdering his girlfriend. The only hold up is Mr. Child could actually be innocent.
The Plea is 358 pages long and took me 3 days to read.
I’m giving this novel a 4.5 out of 5. I loved EVERYTHING about this book from its page turning writing to the incredible “Jake Brigance” feel of Eddie Flynn. I will recommend this to any and everyone and very much look forward to reading more of Steve Cavanaugh!
Thank you so much Flatiron books for sending me this copy!
Here’s to the adventure of finding a novel novel!
