“THE SERIAL KILLER ISN’T ON TRIAL. HE’S ON THE JURY…”
Robert Soloman is a Hollywood superstar, but his career and his life appear to be in ruins, after being charged with the brutal murder of his beautiful wife. The couple were known as Hollywoods hottest power couple, and fans were left devastated at the murder of their beloved actress. They wanted justice. This was set to be the celebrity murder trial of the century, and in the defences eyes, there was only one man for the job: ex conman, turned lawyer, Eddie Flynn.
All evidence appears to prove Robert Soloman’s guilt. However, during the course of the trial, a series of horrifying incidents starts to raise some suspicion with Flynn. It can’t be a coincidence that all of these incidents somehow tie in with this trial. What if there is more to this than meets the eye?
From the moment I picked up Thirteen, I knew it was going to be exactly to my taste, and I certainly wasn’t wrong about that. It is the fourth book in the Eddie Flynn series, but reads perfectly as a stand-alone. Until reading Thirteen, I hadn’t read any of Cavanagh’s other books, and in all honesty, I hadn’t even heard of him. But since then, I have purchased a few of his books, and I can guarantee that you will be doing the same!
This book had me hooked from the very first page, and had me on the edge of my seat the entire way through. At points, the tension was almost too much to bear, but there was no way I was putting down that book. Especially towards the end, where it was packed with twists and turns, that I really wasn’t expecting. Those are exactly the type of things I look for in a book, and I could not have asked for any more from Thirteen.
The characters were so well developed, and perfectly brought to life, through this intense and extremely clever storyline. Thirteen is truly a work of art.
Thirteen is 100% one of my favourite books I have read in a very long time, and is definitely receiving a 5/5 rating from me. I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone, and I can not wait to read more of Steve Cavanagh’s work!
