Fifty Fifty refers to the fact that two sisters are reported to be near the crime scene at the time of their father’s death.
Alexandra rings the police straight away after finding the body of wealthy former New York Mayor Frank Avellino, and blames her sister who’s locked in the bathroom. Sophia is also reporting the murder and blames Alex.
Each chapter is told by a different character, including ‘her’ the murderer. The book follows the legal teams and trials as each go on trial at the same time. However, one of the sisters isn’t telling the truth, but which one?
Steve wrote this book while still working as a full-time lawyer. It’s his sixth book and fifth Eddie Flynn novel. It can be read as a stand-alone story.
Fifty fifty is a taunt and twisted legal thriller.
