Sarah Pinborough is one of the reigning queens of the thriller, right up there with Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins. Her other title, Behind Her Eyes, released earlier this year, and I was skeptical of its promotional hashtag of #wtfthatending. It was so unbelievably accurate I was blown away. So, having loved that book, I knew I had to get my hands on 13 Minutes.

Tasha is technically dead for 13 minutes when she is pulled from the freezing river and revived. No one knows how she ended up there or if it was foul play. The story switches between viewpoints, and is such a good whodunit, with lots of threads leading to dead ends. No matter where you think the story is going, you’ll be wrong. It’s just a given, and that’s what I adore about Pinborough’s books.

The more I thought about this book as I was reading it and after I finished, the more I thought it was comparable in nature to Kimberly McCreight’s Reconstructing Amelia. The characters are young, there’s been a horrible crime committed, and they both use technology (e.g. texting) to convey parts of the story.

★★★★
