In Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh I think the less you know going into the book the better. So, in short, you have a serial killer who isn’t on trial, he is on the jury. You have a defendant who is a rising movie star who is on trial for killing his also rising movie star wife and their chief of security. You also have a defense lawyer who used to be a con artist.
I had so much fun reading this book! I got sucked into the story pretty quickly and I stayed sucked in throughout. I found the plot very engaging and though maybe a bit far fetched at times it was just so much fun to read that I didn’t seem to mind. I could not wait to see how it was all going to play out and I was completely caught off guard a few times at the end. Though this was a plot driven book I did still find the characters engaging. So much so that as this is the fourth book in the Eddie Flynn series I will be going back to read the other books. I wasn’t ever confused by not reading the earlier books and you can definitely read this one first.
This book is about the killings of a serial killer and while I did not find the descriptions of his murders overly graphic they are there.
My copy of Thirteen was provided by the publisher, Flatiron Books, in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!
