Steve Cavanagh on lawyers and conmen

Steve Cavanagh has a dual career as a lawyer and legal thriller novelist, and has recently hit the headlines with his debut novel The Defence, the first of his series of legal thrillers.

Here he talks to Nottingham writer and blogger Rebecca Bradley about writing and research, how the law works in Northern Ireland and the US, artistic licence, John Mortimer (Rumpole) and what the difference is between lawyers and con artists.

Apologies for the sound quality.
