What you need to know before your trail

Leonard Howell’s worst nightmare has come true: his daughter Amy has been kidnapped. Not content with relying on the cops, Howell calls the only man he trusts to get her back.

Eddie Flynn knows what it’s like to lose a daughter and vows to bring Amy home safe. Once a con artist, now a hotshot criminal attorney, Flynn is no stranger to the shady New York underworld.

However, as he steps back into his old life, Flynn realizes that the rules of game have changed – and that he is being played. But who is pulling the strings? And is anyone in this twisted case telling the truth…?

Travel Guide

New York State

Sleepy Hollow

A unique visit to upstate New York – up to Westchester county and the towns of White Plains and the iconic Sleep Hollow with the even more iconic Sleepy Hollow cemetery – this is the cemetery of numerous famous figures, including Washington Irving, whose story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” is set in the adjacent Old Dutch Burying Ground.

But this is also the setting for this fast paced legal thriller -with drops taking place in rural NY, a lawyer from the big city has to run around in a race against time to find a missing child. It’s a wild chase and a needle in a haystack due to the random and rural locations.

White Plains

White Plains PD become involved in the case – it’s the city and the county seat and commercial hub of Westchester, an affluent suburban county just north of New York City that is home to almost one million people.

New Rochelle

The website states that Main Street is the living room of the community – well you don’t need a TV for this thriller where many scenes are set in and around the court and train station is more than enough. There is even a poem about the city which kind of relates to the novel:

No stern and rock bound coast is here, But, peaceful and at ease
The quiet sea lies blue and clear Beside the spreading trees.
Afar from din of marts and mills. A happy people dwell
Among the placid, green clad hills Of lovely New Rochelle
[…]

When Nature, seeking upon menTo cast a magic spell,
She looked the world around – and then She fashioned New Rochelle.
— James J. Montague

 

Booktrailer Review

Susan: @thebooktrailer

I swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth – this is one very fine thriller with legal twists and turns that will trip you up, knock you down and leave you reeling and wanting more.

First Eddie Flynn I’ve read (yeah I know wrists duly slapped) but if this is the kind of case and chaos he gets into then bring it on! It’s a legal thriller with courtroom drama and out of town chases, cemeteries where the bodies aren’t the scariest thing you could encounter and where saying something off the cuff could get you killed…

This was full of taunt anguish with many layers as there was warmth to it too, much more depth than a regular legal thriller with the past and the present coming to blows and the anguish of a missing child. Eddie has his work cut out and it’s a thrilling ride trying to catch up with Eddie both outside the court and inside it. It’s fast, furious and full of action. No page is lacking pace, no word out of place – infact all are cogs in a wonder wheel of turmoil – Flynn fabulousness in other words.

Top thriller from Steve C your honour.
