Reviews & Ramblings

Review & Ramblings: Fifty Fifty by Steve Cavanagh

Publication 11th April, 2020. Hachette Australia

From the first page, Fifty Fifty draws you in. It is easy to read, fast paced, meticulously detailed and filled with complex characters. This is a book that will have you teetering on the edge of your seat, trying to piece together the evidence from this chilling murder.

As the book progresses the plot twists keep coming and trust me, you won’t see them coming. Cavanagh writes in such a suspenseful way, you won’t be able to guess what comes next. Even when you turn the last page, you will still be trying to work out how you, Eddie and Kate were blindsided by the Avellino sisters.

I love the female characters in this book. They are strong and confident, powerful and brave. But they are also gentle and concerned and have their own demons to face.

Fifty Fifty is well written, fast paced, well researched and legal savvy. It is rough and gritty and raw. It is a fantastic work of crime fiction and will not be the last Cavanagh book I read. Cavanagh has created a world within the legal system that is engaging and has one foot in the darker side of things. The characters are fantastic and the plot is completely original. This is one crime fiction novel, you do not want to miss.

Thank you to Hachette for sending me out a review copy of this book!
