Steve Cavanagh

Steve Cavanagh was born and raised in Belfast before leaving for Dublin at the age of eighteen to study Law. He practiced civil rights law and was involved in several high-profile cases; in 2010 he represented a factory worker who suffered racial abuse in the workplace and won the largest award of damages for race discrimination in Northern Ireland legal history. He holds a certificate in Advanced Advocacy and lectures on various legal subjects (but really he just likes to tell jokes). His novel The Liar won the 2018 CWA Gold Dagger award while his follow-up novel Thirteen won the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award in 2019. Twisted and Fifty Fifty were both Sunday Times Top 10 bestsellers. He is married with two young children.

It's a masterclass in misdirection and withholding information that will have you pitting your wits against with author, with courtroom scenes that are second to none: buckle up and read in one sitting.

Fifty Fifty by Steve Cavanagh

TWO SISTERS ON TRIAL FOR MURDER. 

THEY ACCUSE EACH OTHER. 

WHO DO YOU BELIEVE? 

 

‘911 what’s your emergency?’ ‘My dad’s dead. My sister Sofia killed him. She’s still in the house. Please send help.’ ‘My dad’s dead. My sister Alexandra killed him. She’s still in the house. Please send help.’

 

 One of them is a liar and a killer. But which one?
