Ballymena Central Library will host a talk by Steve Cavanagh, author of ‘The Defence’, on Thursday, June 4 from 6.45pm – 7.45pm.

Belfast man Cavanagh, a qualified solicitor, published ‘The Defence’ his debut novel, in March 2015.

It is the first in a new, US-based legal thriller series featuring Eddie Flynn, former con-artist turned trial lawyer.

Steve Cavanagh has been chosen by the NI Arts Council as one of the ACES Award Winners for Literature 2015.

From Goodreads reader review: “With ‘The Defence’ Steve Cavanagh manages to pull off not only a terrific courtroom drama, but also a bit of an edge of the seat thriller, some witty and darkly humerous moments and a character you will fall in love with”.

Review from Sheila O’Flanagan: “The Defence is a tautly paced, well written novel with great characters and a different take on a familiar plot.”

The event is free and everyone is welcome.
