The first week of August is almost over!
Thanks to Flatiron Books for the free advanced copy in exchange for my honest review
THIRTEEN – Steve Cavanagh (Releasing August 13th, 2019)
This is book four in the Eddie Flynn series, and my introduction to it. Also – which cover do you like better? I had received both and I’m thinking I like the red one better.
THE SERIAL KILLER ISN’T ON TRIAL.
HE’S ON THE JURY…
They were Hollywood’s hottest power couple. They had the world at their feet. Now one of them is dead and Hollywood star Robert Solomon is charged with the brutal murder of his beautiful wife.
This is the celebrity murder trial of the century and the defense want one man on their team: con artist turned lawyer Eddie Flynn.
All the evidence points to Robert’s guilt, but as the trial begins a series of sinister incidents in the court room start to raise doubts in Eddie’s mind.
What if there’s more than one actor in the courtroom?
What if the killer isn’t on trial? What if the killer is on the jury?
My Thoughts: 3/5 stars!
I feel like a broken record when it comes to series and jumping in in the middle of one. I don’t try to, but I always seem to miss the note that it’s book 4, like THIRTEEN is. This is the next installment in the Eddie Flynn series, Eddie is a former-conman-turned-criminal-defense-attorney and he’s brought in for this next case. The tagline for this book is what had me instantly drawn to it: the serial killer isn’t on trial, he’s on the jury.
Eddie Flynn has been called in to help with the defense on what is quickly turning into the celebrity murder of the century. A Hollywood power couple become the center of the murder trial when Robert is charged with the brutal crime. Don’t get me wrong, I love the courtroom drama and these legal thrillers, but this one you really need to suspend your belief.
I loved the pacing, the concept and idea, and getting to know Eddie Flynn. I think you’ll do just fine jumping into the series with this book because I didn’t feel lost. Despite some far-fetched moments, this was still an enjoyable read. If you like courtroom dramas, then this is perfect for the TBR.
