Eddie Flynn is an ex-con man and now works as a lawyer, hired to help out in a kidnapping case. The story takes all sorts of twists and turns and the whole thing is quite a ride. There's a fair amount of violence and a body count but also a lot of courtroom scenes. The characters are well-defined and interesting and our narrator makes for an odd combination of con man and lawyer. It's a riveting read, possibly with too many twists and revelations but still well worth the journey.
