Title: Lucky Number Thirteen


Author: Colyer Jameson


Veteran NYC cabbie Demyan Rutzneighov accepts his lot in life, but in the city that never sleeps, a “hard day’s night” can LITERALLY be murder — random drivers are turning up dead.

When NYPD’s murder investigation moves to another level, they soon find themselves on a collision course with the FBI. A struggling dock worker hits the jackpot when a freak accident reveals thirteen mysterious wooden crates filled with cash. But is anything what it seems? Find out as Lucky Number Thirteen threatens to unravel the fabric of a dangerous crime lord’s empire…


My review:

5/5 Stars

~I received a free copy of this book for my honest review~

I’ve read quite a few thrillers, and I have to say, I love the idea of the murder mystery presented in the pages of Lucky Number Thirteen. The author did an amazing job of bringing to life the New York City streets and the monsters lurking within them. Gripping from the very first murder of a taxi cab driver, this book takes you through twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end!

Not to mention the witty thoughts and dialogue of the characters. One of my favorite scenes in the book describes a car accident the main character oversees in which the truck responsible has a bumper sticker that reads “I don’t Dodge, I Ram,” to which the character remarks on the irony. Pretty funny to me which only added to the good list of things I have to say about this book!

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
