December #5 - 13 1/2

Title: 13 1/2

Author: Nevada Barr

Publisher: Vanguard Press

Copyright: 2009

ISBN: 978-1-593-155-53-7

Series or stand-alone: Stand-alone

Setting: Rochester, MN and Jackson Square, French Quarter, New Orleans, LA

1st Sentence:

"By the Month or by the Night" read the sign over the entrance to the trailer park.


Dylan, aka Butcher Boy was convicted of killing his family in the '70s. Polly was Mississippi trailer trash. In present time, their paths cross but is history destined to repeat itself?

I did have some problems with the vagueness of the writing and the way that it jumped around from character to character, but I enjoyed the setting very much.

My favorite thing about the book was the meaning behind the title.
