TH1RT3EN by Steve Cavanagh

Have you ever done jury duty? I’ve done it FOUR times. Both Grand and Petit jury, and one time I was even Juror Number One and got to read the verdict out loud!

Definitely loving the legal thrillers lately. And this one…. whoa.





Hot, Hollywood power couple. New movie coming out together. Life was good. And then one of them ended up dead. The other on trial for the murder.

It’s the trial of the century and Eddie Flynn needs to prove that Robert Solomon is not the one behind the brutal murder of his beautiful wife. The evidence is pretty damning.


But Eddie has his doubts. And this Hollywood star isn’t the only actor in the courtroom. There is a serial killer pretending to be someone else. And that someone else, just happens to be on the jury.

I’m fascinated by the legal process – the way they figure things out, and how clever and sometimes conniving lawyers sometimes need to be. The way this flips back and forth between madman Kane and Eddie Flynn is riveting.

Being inside the mind of both killer and lawyer and delving into the way their minds process opposite sides of the story was exhilarating and engrossing.

There was the perfect amount of gore and guts as we followed the killers moves, an extremely satisfying dose of admiration and respect as Eddie tries to solve the case, and an engrossing story that captivated me from start to finish.

About the Book


It’s the murder trial of the century. And Joshua Kane has killed to get the best seat in the house – and to be sure the wrong man goes down for the crime. Because this time, the killer isn’t on trial. He’s on the jury.

But there’s someone on his tail. Former-conman-turned-criminal-defense-attorney Eddie Flynn doesn’t believe that his movie-star client killed two people. He suspects that the real killer is closer than they think – but who would guess just how close?
