📕My Review

After reading author Steve Cavanagh's smash hit of 2018, Thirteen, I was looking forward to his new novel Twisted with high hopes. As the title suggests, it really is a twisted rollercoaster of a ride and one I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending. A departure from Cavanagh's successful Eddie Flynn series, this new book is a standalone read.

J.T. LeBeau is one of the world's most loved thriller writers. Sales of his books are through the roof. But here's the strange thing -  no one knows who he is. He writes under a pseudonym and with great skill; always managing to throw in a killer twist. So why does he shun the limelight and adoration? The answer is. . . well . . . twisted! 

Phew, what a great tension-filled read! Right from the outset the pacing is frantic and doesn't let up until the very end. J.T. LeBeau is a fantastic creation and I so enjoyed the direction the author took him - a brilliant but warped mind indeed! The plot is akin to a game of cat-and-mouse with protagonist, and less successful author, Paul Cooper frantically trying to outmanoeuvre the cunningly devilish LeBeau.

An entertaining and suspenseful read. Go buy it right now!

1. The police are looking to charge me with murder.
2. No one knows who I am. Or how I did it.
3. If you think you've found me. I'm coming for you next.

After you've read this book, you'll know: the truth is far more twisted...

📘The Author

author Steve Cavanagh
Steve was born and raised in Belfast, Northern Ireland. At 18 he moved to Dublin and studied Law, by mistake, and went on to be a pot-washer, bouncer, security guard and call centre operative before landing a job as an investigator for a large law firm in Belfast, where he eventually qualified as a solicitor. He then moved to a smaller firm where he could practice in the field of civil rights law. Steve has been involved in several high profile cases; in 2010 he represented a factory worker who suffered racial abuse in the workplace and won the largest award of damages for race discrimination in Northern Ireland legal history. He holds a certificate in Advanced Advocacy and often lectures on various legal subjects (but really he just likes to tell jokes).

Steve Cavanagh is the author of the Eddie Flynn books, a series of US-based courtroom thrillers which follow a con-man turned top lawyer.

Steve Cavanagh is the pen name of Stephen Mearns.
