About this deal

J T LeBeau, the author of Twisted, is a multi-million dollar best-selling author, hiding behind a veil of secrecy. Their publisher doesn’t even know his or her true identity and they will go to any lengths to keep it that way. SC is the king of courtroom dramas - his eddie flynn series is some of the best crime novels i have ever read. so i was super excited to see what kind of standalone he could create.

Convinced that he cannot in any way count on the police, Leonard turns to the one person he believes will help rescue her daughter. When Eddie isn’t fully convinced by their approach, the FBI turns to arm twisting, presenting Eddie with implicating files on his wife. With multiple narrators moving the story along, the book has a slower pace to begin with whilst the scene is set but then reaches a point where there is barely time to pause for breath before each rollercoaster ride begins again.


Twisted is one of those thrillers that the less you know of the story beforehand, the more thrilling the ride. It’s difficult to go into detail about the plot without giving away spoilers, so this review will be a brief one. I should mention that this is a standalone and although lawyer Eddie Flynn does get a mention, it is not part of that series. I can't tell you too much about this book because the twisty thing. I don't want to spoil you. Of course, I have been known to spoil accidentally (and not accidentally) before so.... maybe I already have. Which is the twistiest thing ever? A Twister lolly? A game of Twister? Twister, the movie, starring Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt? If you ask me, it's Twisted by Steve Cavanagh! It's got more twists than a Curly Wurly! * Stuart Neville * His promise however doesn’t last for long, as his ten-year-old daughter is abducted by the leader of the Russian mafia in New York City, who is on trial for murder.

Twisted is a compulsive psychological thriller that is completely enthralling, suspenseful and Taut. From here on in, don’t believe a single word you read.”, and it’s not until the author wraps up this mind bender of a book that you finally understand what sits behind this sound bite. None of the twists in ‘Twisted’ did that for me. They change the direction of the plot, but they didn’t have that kind of revelatory impact. To put it simply, I never had a “whoa!” moment.While during the day he was working at his legal firm, at night, when everyone at home was asleep, he was writing his book. This way, he managed to finish his first draft within a year. He sent it to several publishing houses but got over 30 rejections.

I also always had an interest in the law, so I read John Mortimer’s Rumpole of the Bailey series and, of course, John Grisham.” My first port of call is to usually buy the latest Michael Connelly, Mark Billingham or Paul Finch to name a few, however,
