#Bookvent Top Reads of 2018 #Day14 @SSCAV

December 14, 2018

Today it is day fourteen in my series showcasing my top reads of 2018, following the innovative idea of #bookvent from Jen Lucas of Jen Med’s Book Reviews.

What’s behind door no 14?

Today’s book choice is from an author whose series I was first introduced to by my sister, a woman with excellent taste, and I have really enjoyed the travails of this con man turned lawyer. Now I love a good legal thriller, but this book was exceptional, taking his protagonist to another level.

Yes, it’s written by lawyer turned author and well known podcaster, who is one half of Two Crime Writers and a Microphone, Steve Cavanagh.


THE SERIAL KILLER ISN’T ON TRIAL.

HE’S ON THE JURY…

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.

Joshua Kane has been preparing for this moment his whole life. He’s done it before.

But this is the big one.

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.

Kane knows time is running out – he just needs to get to the conviction without being discovered.

It isn’t just the hook, which is in itself pretty damned clever, but the whole tightly plotted, brilliantly thought through story line that twists and turns until you have doubled back on yourself so often you start to get dizzy.

Cavanagh’s writing keeps the reader enthralled and on the edge of their seat as they try to work out what just happened and what’s coming next.

Thirteen is gripping, compelling, a brilliant read and absolutely belongs on everyone’s must read list.
