Synopsis

Born at midnight in London, on the stroke of the new millennium, Adam is the target of a cult that believes boys born on this date must die before the end of their thirteenth year. Twelve boys have been killed so far. Coron, the crazy cult leader, will stop at nothing to bring in his new kingdom. And now he is planning a spectacular bombing across London to celebrate the sacrifice of his final victim: Adam.

Thirteen is the first in an exciting action series from debut author Tom Hoyle.

In the media

Fast-paced and brimming with action, menace and suspense, Thirteen is a truly gripping and gritty thriller.
Lancashire Evening Post
A great read for everyone but it will join my list of reads for boy, particularly those finding reading an effort aged 12-16.
The School Librarian
The characters were great, both the 'good' and the 'bad'. Coron was a brilliant crazy cult leader. Adam was a really likeable character, and the way he fantasised about being a hero before talking sense into himself was really cute. It is definitely something I would recommend for a younger, male reader who enjoys books such as The Recruit by Robert Muchamore.
