Thirteen boys were born at midnight in London on the stroke of the new millennium. Today twelve of them are dead. They were executed by a cult called "The People," under the leadership of a dark, ruthless man named Coron. The People have tracked down all but one of their victims and will do anything to reach their last, thirteen-year-old Adam. Adam doesn’t know he’s in danger. Raised by adoptive parents, he has never known his real birthday, and he has no idea that his days are numbered. When a cult deserter named Simon tries to warn him, Adam can hardly believe what he is facing. With help from Simon, Adam and his best friend Megan dodge a double agent policeman, multiple assassination attempts, and Coron himself, while labeled a public enemy for killing in self-defense. This heart-stopping thriller saves the best for last as Adam races against the clock to prevent a spectacular disaster.

Tom Hoyle is a pseudonym for a London school teacher. Thirteen is his first novel.Review:
Thirteen is a rattling good read and I suspect there will be plenty of adults, like me, who will be very happy to add this to their reading piles. * crimereview.co.uk * Fast-paced and brimming with action, menace and suspense, Thirteen is a truly gripping and gritty thriller. * Lancashire Evening Post * 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. * jilllovestoread.blogspot.co.uk * This was a very strong debut novel, the villains were fantastic and all the more eerie because these kinds of people actually exist. If you know any young to mid teens with a penchant for thrillers and tense action stories, this is definitely the story for them. * ermergerdwerds.wordpress.com * As with any great adventure the closing passages were built up with tension and it had a great setting in the streets of London, feeling ready-made for a film adaptation. I would recommend this book at the younger teen but anything that can get young males reading is worthy of acclaim and I think this book will certainly do that. * boyletstalkaboutbooks281.blogspot.co.uk * 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. * arabooklover.blogspot.co.uk * I loved the storyline of thirteen kids being born on the 1st of January 2000 and a clan of crazy ass people chasing after them to kill them before they hit the age of 14 so that their leader can "cleanse the world" of evil. It makes you realise how easily persuaded and gullible humans actually are. * doughnutandco.blogspot.co.uk * 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 * Thirteen is an explosive read that is very readable. It's dangerous, disturbing and always exciting. The ending is mindblowingly brilliant and I'm very eager to get my hands on book 2. * fictionfascination.blogspot.co.uk *
