The Sandman killings have been solved. Daniel Miller murdered fourteen people before he vanished. His wife, Carrie, now faces trial as his accomplice. The FBI, the District Attorney, the media and everyone in America believe she knew and helped cover up her husband's crimes.
Eddie Flynn won't take a case unless his client is innocent. Now, he has to prove to a jury, and the entire world, that Carrie Miller was just another victim of the Sandman. She didn't know her husband's dark side and she had no part in the murders. But so far, Eddie and his team are the only ones who believe her.

Steve Cavanagh has done it again with his latest Eddie Flynn novel.It is fast and furious and has so many twists and turns that I stopped breathing at one point. It's plot takes you to the very last page and will leave you breathless. Absolutely great characters with lots of humour too. It is definitely a series I will reread and always look forward to the next one.
Steve Cavanagh's hotshot lawyer Eddie Flynn is back, in his latest gripping and fast paced New York City legal thriller, a truly thrilling and twisted addition featuring the most hated women in the country as his client. Notorious serial killer, The Sandman, killing mostly women, rips out their eyes and pours sand over the victim's face, has been revealed by the FBI as Daniel Miller, a wealthy hedge fund manager, but he remains at large. Instead, his wife, Carrie, has been charged and facing trial as his accomplice, her home is under siege, the public and media loathe her and protesters are targeting her. Her pre-trial preparation lawyer, Otto Peltier, has approached Eddie to take over her defense for the trial as he has little experience, but Eddie is wary. It may be hottest case in America, with a promised payday that most lawyers can only dream of, but he will only take on clients he believes are innocent, he still carries the trauma of having previously defended the guilty.
When he meets Carrie, he sees a woman heavily weighed down by a sense of grief and guilt, her suffering persuades him that she is innocent, although he can feel Carrie has not told him everything as he sets out to defend her. He and his hardworking and talented team, consisting of ex-judge, mentor and now consultant Harry Ford, partner Kate Brooks, investigator Bloch and his over-qualified office manager, Denise, are the only ones who believe Carrie is innocent, and simply another victim of the Sandman. They are joined by Gabriel Lake, once a former FBI agent before someone tried to kill him, he believes everything the FBI knows about serial killers is false, and he is a man who wants revenge. Interspersed throughout the narrative is the persepective of the Sandman, intent on saving and freeing his much loved wife, he is once again killing to protect Carrie, and everyone, including Eddie and his team are a target.
Cavanagh once again pulls off another stellar addition to his wonderful series with his terrific plotting, and the creation and development of his charismatic ex-conman lawyer, Eddie Flynn. Flynn is on top form here, despite being under severe emotional stress, setting out to win against all the odds, deploying his familiar bag of strategies in a riveting and tense courtroom drama. He finds himself forced to adapt to unforseen circumstances, and utilising childhood friends like Jimmy 'the Hat' Fellini. This is a terrifically entertaining crime read, full of shocks and twists, that will appeal to existing fans of the series, and appeal to other crime, mystery and thriller fans. Many thanks to the publisher for an ARC.
Oh my how the hell do you do this Steve Cavanagh and write books that completely blow my mind every time …you just did it once more by writing another thrilling instalment in the amazing Eddie Flynn series and I loved it !
There are good books and great books but then there are books that just completely blow your mind well this is one of those and to be honest every book in this series has been the same each time I start a new one in the series I think there is no way this can be better than the last one and it always is !
I read a lot of books and have a lot of favourites but this series to me has always been special, I have always thought if I could meet a character from a book who would it be well Eddie Flynn tops my list he is one hell of a brilliant character flaws and all he is so well written and I love him to pieces.
I must also mention the other members of the team Harry and his dog Clarence, Kate and Bloch they also are characters that have become special with each and every instalment and it’s almost like being back with old friends when you start a new book.
Of course the plot line of this read is stunning, clever and with all the twists you would wish for with Eddie at his brilliant best in the courtroom and leaving me picking my jaw up from the floor more than once this is real clever stuff going on here and that ending just floored me !
So a truly outstanding read it’s deserving of more than 5 stars, I have nothing bad to say about it it was a dream of a read and I was sorry to finish it and as always can’t wait for the next in series.
Massive thanks to Steve Cavanagh you sir are a true genius I love reading and you are reason why I do with your brilliant plots and characters, long may you continue.
My thanks also to NetGalley and Orion Publishing Group for giving me the chance to read the ARC in exchange for my honest opinion.
