Living on Adrenalin:
Successful civil rights lawyer Steve Cavanagh has penned his first novel, an exhilarating legal thriller. The first of his Eddie Flynn series is a heart-pumping tale of a hustler lawyer whose daughter is kidnapped by the Russian mafia. Mason Cross has followed up his high-octane debut, The Killing Season, with The Samaritan, which sees the return of Carter Blake and his unconventional ways to track down the killer.
