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

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 bombing spectacular across London to celebrate the sacrifice of his final victim: Adam.

In the media

A great read for everyone but it will join my list of reads for boy, particularly those finding reading an effort aged 12-16.

I found myself gripped and not able to put it down until I knew what happened. The author has a sequel planned and I will be looking out for it.
Fast-paced and brimming with action, menace and suspense, Thirteen is a truly gripping and gritty thriller.
