To your knowledge, is there anything that would preclude you from serving on this jury?’
Murder wasn’t the hard part. It was just the start of the game.

This is the murder trial of the century. And Kane has killed to get the best seat in the house.
But there’s someone on his tail. Someone who suspects that the killer isn’t the man on trial.

Does someone want to slap my hands, I’ve been ever such a naughty reader, Steve Cavanagh books, I’ve never lifted one to read……….runs off to hide, but seriously I haven’t, more fool me, I have missed out on so much. Okay so I’ve read out of sequence, I know, I know very bad, but there was no way I was letting Th1rt3n pass me by, the Cover grabbed my attention, that tagline, that was me front an centre waiting for the book to download to my kindle. Nothing was going to stop me….
The serial killer isn’t on trial
HE’S ON THE JURY…
Really look that tagline its such a sucker punch, there was no way I was backing away from this one, who could……..Right lets get on with it, no more fooling around.
Th1rt3n by Steve Cavanagh is book #4 in the Eddie Flynn series and could be read as a standalone, but I think in my opinion I urge you to read the previous books to get the full comprehension of who Eddie Flynn is and how he got to this point. Yes I read out of sync and it didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the book, so now I have laid claim to go and purchase the rest of the series. I want to know all about Eddie Flynn.
A high octane murder trial, a con-man turned defence lawyer, a Hollywood actor Robert Solomon stands accused of murdering his head of security and his wife, then there’s the sting in the tale the killer is amongst them….. he’s on the Jury, what the hell yip you read that right, an instant grab you scenario. Its not unusual for a writer to parade the killer hidden in plain sight, but hidden within the Jury what a genius.
A battle between two ensues, Eddie Flynn and Joshua Kane, who will prevail will Eddie discovery the identity of the serial killer before Robert becomes another of Kane’s innocents who languish in prison or will Kane fulfil his game and defeat the justice system once again.
I really liked Eddie he seemed strangely charismatic but also is a shell of his previous self, he has lost his marriage and maybe his daughter, he has developed a drink problem and seems to land himself in endless trouble even if its not his fault, think I have a penchant for the Bad Boy turned Good. Kane on the other hand is volatile, emotionless, and has a perception that dreams and ambitions are not worthy to some, therefore they must suffer the consequences as he has done.
Steve has written Th1rt3n with a certain fluidity, the narrative flows seamlessly, trouncing my very beliefs at times that I knew which one of the Jury members was the killer, but no Steve you have to go and stick another resounding distorted scenario in my path, I gasp then I carry on.
The finality of the book came all too soon for me, I wanted to keep myself from the ending, I was thoroughly immersed in the whole plotline and I didn’t want there to be a final page……. although I’m finished with Th1rt3n, my journey with Eddie Flynn and Steve Cavanagh has only just begun…….
My thanks go to Orion Crime Books, Steve Cavanagh, Lauren at Orion and Tracy Fenton for the advanced readers copy of Th1rt3n in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
