Publisher's Summary

The serial killer isn't on trial. He's on the jury.

Hollywood actor Robert Soloman stands accused of the brutal stabbings of his wife and her lover, but he is desperately pleading that he had nothing to do with it. This is the trial of the century, and the defence want Eddie Flynn on their team.

The biggest case Eddie has ever tried before, he decides to take it on despite the overwhelming evidence that Robert is guilty. As the trial starts, Eddie becomes sure of Robert's innocence, but there's something else he is even more sure of - that there is something sinister going on in the jury box.

Because of this, he is forced to ask: what if the killer isn't on the stand? What if he's on the jury?

My first Eddie Flynn book

Where have I been whilst this series has been around? How I’ve missed it is a mystery! But although this was my first book in the series it won’t be my last! It really grabbed my attention from the first page and I knew by chapter three I was loving it. It was a story full of twists and turns, peopled with clever good guys and equally clever bad guys. Some to love and some to hate,but all well padded characters. I need to go back now and start at book no one.

Thirteen

I like crime novels but generally don't read court room based dramas so on saying that this was my first. On the whole I enjoyed it but thought it dragged on a wee bit in the middle and there was a few too many coincidences. The baddie was interesting as he had an illness (was fortunate to have) that I had never heard of. The narrator used a range of voices which I found believable.

I would read more from this author and the narrator.

Best listen in my library

I love a serial killer story. I love a courtroom drama. Thirteen was love squared, it was outstanding – the page turner you hope that every book will be but few actually achieve.

Thirteen is Eddie Flynn book 4. For me it was Eddie Flynn book 1 (though books 1, 2, 3 and the 0.5 novella are all on my Kindle screaming at me to read them). I can categorically state that you do not have to have read the earlier books to enjoy Thirteen.

Eddie Flynn is a former conman turned lawyer – he is headhunted by a large law firm to join the team defending a high profile Hollywood star who stands accused of murdering his wife and her lover. The actor maintains his innocence but the evidence seems beyond dispute.

The reader knows that the real killer is not on trial, he is devising a way to get onto the jury. From this position of power the killer believes he can influence how the other jurors will view the evidence and that he can ensure an innocent man is found guilty of a crime he committed. The twist is delicious and Steve Cavanagh has worked some serious magic to make this story astonishingly good.

To give away too much of the plot of Thirteen would be criminal – readers should discover the joy of this book for themselves. Eddie Flynn is a hugely likeable character and I loved the principled drive he brought to this case. The killer made for fascinating reading too – we spend quite a lot of time in their company and the lengths with are gone to for him to secure his position of control are astonishing (and kept me turning pages).

I can also add a little extra detail to my reading experience of Thirteen as before I knew I was joining the blog tour I had already started to listen to the audiobook. The book is narrated by Adam Sims who has the perfect voice for this story – a slightly gravelly American accent which I could listen to for hours (and did as it happens). As an audiobook can live or die by the skill of the narrator I was very happy to hear this wonderful tale enhanced by a skilled storyteller.

I tend not to score the books I read but Thirteen is a guaranteed five star read – one of the reading highs of the year.

Fantastic all rounder

This is a definite can’t put down book. Well written, gripping and quality narration. Would certainly recommend for anyone liking books that have a legal aspect but with plenty of twists and a bit of action too.
