Review - 13th Hour, a Thriller in Reverse


12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1-13th Hour

You are not mistaken, as you turn to the next page and find Chapter 12.

The Chapters in this book are in reverse order and are to be read that way for reason that will become evident upon your journey.

That was the author’s note, what an amazing way to start.

A thriller in reverse, it was action packed and every chapter/hour had suspense with cliffhangers. It was brilliant, always a consequence for Nick’s actions and decisions, I couldn’t wait for what’s next. Nick has to solve the mystery not knowing who to turn to because as he quickly learning there are corrupt cops involved and a plane crash to keep all the powers to be busy, no time for a crazy man that knows the future. And the story starts with Nick himself being suspected of murdering his own wife.

This was a thriller love story – a “what would you do if given a 2nd chance or 12 chances to save the one you love”. Some choices caused a domino effect and were worst then losing his wife but luckily Nick had another opportunity, the power to change. Many times you ask yourself is fate reversible, Nick could have been lied to, made to look like a fool but to live without his wife was not a choice for him but putting himself and others at risk wasn’t the plan either.

I am not a huge fan of time travel but I enjoyed the hourly intervals, it was very mysterious, I definitely enjoyed this one.

4 ½ Great to the Last Drop

I am including this one in for the Thriller and Suspense Challenge

  4. Kathy - to be clear Thrillers and Suspense is my favourite genre but Time Traveling is not my cup of tea so it was a little risk.

  10. Nice review! I've been interested in this book ever since I saw an ARC of it (which I foolishly didn't pick up). I'm glad you enjoyed it. It sounds like it would make a great suspense film.

    By the way, I gave you an award on my blog.
