Thirteen (Eddie Flynn, #4) Reviews
A brilliant con artist goes head to head with a brilliant serial killer. Who will win in the end?
Eddie Flynn, a former con artist turned lawyer, is put in the spotlight when he takes on the case of a Hollywood actor accused of murdering his wife and bodyguard. The evidence is damning, but Eddie believes in his client's innocence and will do what it takes to win the case.
Joshua Kane, a serial killer with a unique ability, plots his way onto the Hollywood murder jury. He has a vested interest in the outcome of the case.
This is the fourth book in the Eddie Flynn series, but the first for me. It can definitely be read as standalone. With that being said, I want to know more about Eddie and plan on reading the earlier books in the series to fill in some gaps.
The narrative is split between Eddie and Kane’s POV’s, each compelling in its own way. Eddie is a fascinating and flawed protagonist who is easy to root for. And Kane, without giving too much away,….well, he is one of the most fascinating characters I have come across in a long time!
Thirteen is a fast-paced legal thriller with tons of twists and turns. This is an exciting and intense read that kept me guessing. It goes a little off the rails towards the end, but this aspect didn't take away from my enjoyment. The premise is a little whacky, but it works! It was nice to read something that was a little different and not the typical formulaic thriller. I highly recommend!
I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Flatiron Books in exchange for an honest review.
Wow, what a ride this was. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading it into the small hours! I picked this book up as I'd seen several good reviews of it from friends and I'm so glad I did.
This is the fourth book in the Eddie Flynn series, though it's the first one I've read, and it works perfectly well as a standalone. Eddie, former conman turned lawyer, is asked to work on the case of Hollywood star Bobby Solomon, who is standing trial for murdering his wife and his head of security. Yet unbeknownst to Eddie there is a rogue juror. A serial killer, a chameleon, has infiltrated the jury process, and he's hell bent on making sure Bobby Solomon is found guilty.
I really don't want to say too much more about the plot, just that it's twisty and turny, and certainly has the wow-factor that a good legal thriller needs. Yet it's so much more than that. I really enjoyed the characters, as well as the action in and out of the courtroom and I'll certainly be on the lookout for more of Steve Cavanagh's work in the future. I can't recommend this book highly enough.
My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
What happens when a Serial Killer finagles his way onto a Jury? Let’s call it what it is: One Wild Ride!
Celebrity Movie Star Robert Soloman has been convicted of murdering his wife Ariella Bloom and her lover, though he swears he’s innocent.
Former con artist, Eddie Flynn is now a lawyer. Hired to represent Bobby Soloman he quickly realizes that the guy is in fact, innocent even though the evidence makes it appear as though the guy is guilty as sin. How to prove it? Now that’s the question!
Joshua Kane is a Serial Killer. He is not who or what he seems. Little does anyone know that Kane has gotten himself a seat on Bobby Soloman’s jury. For what purpose exactly? Ha. I’m afraid I can’t say. What I can say is that I hope I never meet anyone like Kane.
This is one crazy read! It's a legal thriller, a police procedural and a mystery/suspense rolled into one Well done Steve Cavanaugh! This is the 4th book in the Eddie Flynn series however I read it as a standalone. I loved the character of Eddie Flynn and would definitely go back and read the rest of the series.
This was another buddy read with Kaceey!
Thank you to NetGalley, Flatiron Books and Steve Cavanaugh for an arc of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
Published on Goodreads and NetGalley on 8.28.19.
As legal thrillers go, it doesn't get much better than Steve Cavanagh's Thirteen!
It also doesn't get much weirder! An ex conman as a defence lawyer? and a serial killer on the jury! But this was such a gripping read - the tension was unbearable at times. The characters were cleverly brought to life with a storyline that was not only intense, but oh so clever. The twists came thick and fast towards the end, reaching dizzying heights, and made it impossible to put the book down. I've read some truly terrific books this year, and 'Thirteen' has made it onto that list. Read it if you get the chance!

THE SERIAL KILLER ISN'T ON TRIAL.
HE'S ON THE JURY...
When I read this teaser on the cover, I immediately wanted to read it and find out how a serial killer got a seat on the jury and how this show would play out!
This is #4 in this popular series and now I know why. This worked just fine as a stand-alone. I was easily pulled into the story with the super suspenseful beginning and questions quickly started swirling around in my thoughts.
I'm a huge fan of courtroom dramas and legal thrillers and this one did not disappoint. A celebrity named Robert Soloman is charged with murder and goes on trial, but his lawyer, Eddie Flynn sees that somethings just don't add up. Okay, Eddie is Brilliant!!
It was a perfect book for a buddy read and we had a great time trying to find all the pieces to solve the big puzzle. We were able to find some hints to what was coming, but we were also surprised! The creative plot and fascinating characters kept me engaged and there was just the right amount of action to add some tension.
Recommend to fans of legal crime fiction/ courtroom dramas with a touch of dark and disturbing!
