Review: Thirteen

Review: Thirteen

The premise of Thirteen immediately caught my attention on NetGalley – the serial killer is not the one on trial, rather he is occupying a seat on the jury! I had high hopes for this read and wow, it even surpassed my expectations. Let me start by saying that this is actually the fourth book […]
