Absurd Premise, but Entertaining Nevertheless
Review of the Orion Kindle eBook (Jan 2018) issued prior to the Orion paperback (June 2018)

While shopping for some quick reads to get my 2021 Reading Challenge off to a good start I chanced on Thirteen in a Kindle sale this January. The tagline premise "The serial killer isn't on trial, he's on the jury," sounded completely absurd, but I took a chance nevertheless and it certainly was a fast read as you cannot wait to find out what happens next. The twists just keep coming up until the final few pages.

This is the 4th novel of the Eddie Flynn lawyer series by Irish writer Steve Cavanagh, who sets the books in the USA. ( )

Fab suspense. ( )

The thirteen is a legal thriller filled with tension as thick as a London Fog. This book has plenty of twists and turns as Steve Cavanagh takes us on a roller coaster ride to a dramatic conclusion. Hang on to your seat as you're in for a wild ride. ( )

When I read the premise of this book I was instantly intrigued, and Steve Cavanagh does a fantastic job with keeping the drama and suspense turned up in Thirteen, the fourth edition to the Eddie Flynn series. I haven’t read the others in the series, but if they are as good as Thirteen then I definitely will.

Cavanagh alternates the telling of the story between Flynn and the killer, Joshua Kane. Cavanagh doesn’t hold back with the descriptions of how twisted Kane’s mind and killings are, which is something that a lot of courtroom dramas shy away from.

There were a couple of things that I rolled my eyes at because it was a bit too far fetched, but it was needed to keep the story going. The biggest thing was when the jury specialist was going to tell Flynn something that disturbed him about one of the jurors, but Flynn just had to be elsewhere. Right. That. Minute. It would have taken the specialist two seconds to say the name, but if he had then what happened later couldn’t have happened. It wasn’t that big of a deal, but it was obviously something that stuck with me.
Another thing that stood out was the way Flynn handled the relationship with his wife at the end. It just seemed forced/strange/something else I can’t put my finger on, but perhaps if I had read the previous books it would have flowed better for me.

Even with those sticking points, I still say you should read this book, especially if you like courtroom dramas or serial killers. And you may not even notice what I mentioned previously! ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed the writing, the plot, and its treatment. This recipe had the right amount of plot twists, action, humor, and brilliance, making it a yummy dish of a story. Eddie Flynn is a flawed hero. His personal life is nonexistent, he has self-sabotaged his relationships. He has a hero complex that comes in the way of him achieving anything good for himself. Yet this very hero complex makes him root for the people who otherwise are beyond help. A protagonist that's worth rooting for.

I liked the friendships portrayed in the story. Especially his and Harry's.

I liked how this story didn't have any sleaze or curse words. Generally, stories such as these are liberally sprinkled with sex scenes (usually unrelated to the plot) or/and with generous curse words just to show how bad/cool a character is. I don't mind that, but, in fast-paced stories such as these, I prefer not to get distracted by romantic detours and too much insight on a villain's mental makeup. This author didn't resort to any such unnecessary tactics. The antagonist is shrewd, a thinking and extremely dangerous villain and that's that.

This is a police, court procedural story and that's usually a hit or miss with me. This was one of the rare good ones that I liked.

The court scenes are a real treat. It's not as crisp and electrifying as in other novels you might have read. But, the author has written it in a very visual way and that's a sure page-turner.

Go for it if you want a cool courtroom drama where the serial killer is just around the corner and keeps messing up with the best-laid plans of powers that be.
