The Circle of Thirteen
The title of the novel refers to a group of thirteen women who were instrumental in making large scale social change and bringing about world peace. In the year 2082, an explosion interrupts a dedication ceremony to the thirteen women at the new UN building in New York City. The culprit is rumored to be a woman-hating terrorist group, thought to be long disbanded. The heroine of the story, Officer Julia Moro, must find the culprits and bring them to justice. Unfortunately, her investigation leads her to discover troubling facts about her personal life, her past, and the ones she loves.
In this debut novel, the author is attempting to draw together a number of large, important themes, from women’s issues, including domestic violence and power differentials, to environmental issues, and terrorism. Thus, this novel will appeal to two distinct audiences. First, readers who enjoy a thriller, with exciting police chases, and a global underground terrorist organization looking to disrupt the world’s food supply, will find plenty to love. Second, readers who enjoy a growing literature surrounding strong female lead characters will likewise not be disappointed.
