The Accomplice (Eddie Flynn #7) - Steve Cavanagh


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.


Gabriel Lake used to be a federal agent, before someone tried to kill him. Now, he's an investigator with a vendetta against the Sandman. He's the only one who can catch him, because he believes that everything the FBI knows about serial killers is wrong.


With his wife on trial, the Sandman is forced to come out of hiding to save her from a life sentence. He will kill to protect her and everyone involved in the case is a target.

Even Eddie Flynn...

What did I think?

Even though I jumped into the Eddie Flynn series at book 5, I get super excited when a new book is released and I couldn't wait to read book 7, The Accomplice.  Even though each book is brilliant and I don't think it can be bested, this series just gets better and better and The Accomplice is the best one yet.

The plot is breathtaking with the wife of a missing unconvicted murderer standing trial as an accomplice.  With Sandman Daniel Miller missing and unable to stand trial, all of the public's hatred is directed towards his wife Carrie.  The sense of injustice is palpable as Carrie is faced with the full wrath of the law as well as the public.  Only Eddie Flynn can get justice for Carrie.

The investigation to prove Carrie's innocence progresses with the help of former FBI agent Gabriel Lake, but Lake seems to have an agenda of his own and I was worried that he couldn't be trusted.  He's partnered up with Bloch though and she takes no nonsense from anybody so I knew I should be more concerned for Lake's safety if he tries any funny business.

I just couldn't put this book down and I enjoyed every single second of it.  It's so good that I want to read it again, even though I know all its secrets.  Steve Cavanagh is The Master of Misdirection and even though I expected the unexpected, I was still shocked and surprised by The Accomplice.

Gripping, thrilling and absolutely breathtaking, The Accomplice is a jawdroppingly brilliant masterpiece and an easy five stars.  I really don't know how Steve Cavanagh will outdo it but, on his past form, I know that he undoubtedly will and I can't wait for more Eddie Flynn.

I chose to read an ARC and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
