Book Review: The Accomplice by 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…

A new Eddie Flynn book is always something I’m pleased to see and I was delighted to receive a copy from Netgalley to review.

This time out the little team of Bloch, Kate, Eddie and Harry feel like they have properly settled in to working together and Eddie seems more comfortable listening to their opinions as well. 

As expected this was another tightly crafted story that kept me reading and my brain engaged trying to figure out what exactly was going on – because in Cavanagh’s books there is always something else happening! I was incredibly pleased with myself for working out part of it (admittedly only about 2 pages ahead of it becoming obvious) but there were (as usual!) plenty of things I missed too!

Its incredibly hard to review the actual story without giving any of the plot away so I won’t, I’ll just say if you a fan of the previous Flynn books or are looking for a smart crime thriller then this one is worth picking up.

With thanks to and Netgalley for a copy in exchange for honest review.

The Accomplice is available now
