He is married with two young children.Follow Steve on Facebook at facebook.com/SSCav1 and Twitter @SSCav

Reviews

THE DEFENCE is everything a great thriller should be and I can't wait to see more of Eddie FlynnImagine THE VERDICT's Frank Galvin crossed with THE FIRM's Mitch McDeere and you'd get something like Eddie Flynn, the quick thinking, troubled, kinetic lead of Steve Cavanagh's debut thriller ... A deliriously fast and enjoyable ride from the next big Irish crime fiction star. Highly recommendedPart classic courtroom drama in the John Grisham tradition and part Bruce Willis-like action hero fiction straight out of the Die Hard franchise, this is a rip-roaring action-packed and highly entertaining debut - IRISH INDEPENDENT[It] reads a lot like a courtroom drama that Lee Child might write about Jack Reacher's younger, hotter-headed brother . . . This is afoot-to-the-floor thriller that pulls out with tyres smoking and takes no prisoners until it judders to a halt 400 pages later - IRISH TIMESLike Mickey Haller and Mitch McDeere before him, readers will love lawyer Eddie Flynn, the star of this high-octane, hugely entertaining legal thriller. On the evidence of this blistering debut, we'll be hearing much more of Steve Cavanagh
