Thriller | Science Fiction
In 2082, a catastrophic explosion rocks the dedication
ceremony of the new United Nations in New York City.
Security Director Julia Moro is on the job, chasing after
the misogynistic leader of Patria, a long-disbanded
international terrorist organization now being whispered
about again on the streets. This dangerous, shadowy figure
has been linked to several bombing attempts and vicious
attacks on women, including the Women of Peace—an
organization headed by thirteen bold women who have risked
their lives to restore worldwide peace. As Julia’s
investigation unfolds, a deep secret from her past threatens
to strip her of everything she cherishes and plunge her into
The Circle of
Thirteen's gripping narrative weaves back and forth in
time, from an act of domestic violence that created the
disturbed personality of the Patria mastermind, to the two
weeks leading up to the bombing at the UN, to events half a
century before the bombing that directly influence it. The
strong, relatable women and the unbreakable bond between
them provide an emotionally grounded window into the
future’s unforgettable history.

Usually the main characters are male in this type of thriller--I think I'll like this one with a female.

I commend you for being an advocate for women's rights. That would make sense for where the story line came from. With your background, I'm sure that your book would be a real page-turner for this time of year. I'd have to make sure to keep a lot of hot chocolate on hand, to make sure I don't have any interruptions!! The good thing about this book is that I'm sure when I'm done reading it, I should be able to pass it along to my Husband to read it, too!! Congratulations on your first novel, and may it be the first of many to come!!

As a woman of "today" I like the fact that you incorporate a woman in the story line....one where I want to see what happens from page one to finish. I just happen to like to read snuggled into my comfy chair with a nice cup of tea and read away.
(C Culp 12:58pm October 28, 2013)
This book sounds great. I would love to ready it.

Wow, Congrats on your new book and 1st novel: THE CIRCLE OF
THIRTEEN. I love the book cover too! Yes, the golden rings
are like people and we are all connected in our world. I
truly would love to be one of those women seeking world
peace because there is too much violence in our country and
around the world too. We all need to put God First and live
by the Ten Commandments especially the one that says: Thou
Shalt Not Kill!!! Then, our world would be a better place
for all of us to live a better life in for sure. I would
love to win and read your special book this Fall. Thank You
very much. Cecilia CECE

Congrats on your first novel. Circle of Thirteen has that intriguing ring to it.
(Kai Wong 12:24pm October 30, 2013)
Great cover and fascinating premise. I love layered plots and
it sounds as though you have achieved that delicate skill
(Janet Martin 8:46am October 30, 2013)
This does sound fantastic.
(Mary Preston 11:45pm October 30, 2013)
Flashbacks help stories make sense in that they are grounding
moments. To know each of the 13 women and how they
contributed to history, the backstories tell the tale. I like
reading stories that have history woven throughout.
