"This book is a hands-down winner! Psychological terror at its best, 13 1/2 shines with authentic voices, high-amp tension, and Barr's brilliant and unique style."
Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author
"Stunning ... spellbinding psychological suspense with twists you won't see coming ... an amazing, virtuoso piece of writing."
“Keep the lights on while reading this intense psychological thriller. The tension’s so tight you’ll be rethinking every motive and clue up to the finale. Much like Nancy Pickard in The Virgin of Small Plains, Barr forces us to look beyond the obvious to the hidden evils we may have overlooked.”
Romantic Times, 4 stars
“...a hair-raising thriller.... packs a powerful punch.”
“Barr process adept at both pulsing horror and sweet romance.... [for] readers who like dark psychological thrillers.”
Sun-Sentinel (Ft. Lauderdale, FL)
Barr skillfully shows her affinity for delving into her characters' souls in 13 ½. Barr keeps the psychological terror elevated in 13 ½ by realistically showing how people can be manipulated - by others and by the juvenile justice system.”
New Orleans Magazine
“13 ½ is a glorified thriller that will tease and please lovers of the genre...”
“Barr's vibrant prose keeps you reading....irresistible.”
“Reminiscent of novels by Thomas Harris and Minette Walters....will send shivers up the spine of even the toughest reader....Barr adds interstitial musings about well-known murders throughout history that are so stone-cold they could make Hannibal Lector blanch in fear.”
“...a brilliantly harrowing effort.... 13 ½ feels better written and more richly drawn than Barr's very good Anna Pigeon efforts. Certainly a new direction and one that takes her on a genre-bending course to evil and depravity in this downright chilling tale.”
“Barr's smooth storytelling style keeps the tension at a heart-pounding level...”

Barr's story lines can stand alone, but she takes you to the locale of the tale -- this time post-Katrina New Orleans. I love "visiting" places I've been before with her characters.
The essays kept me guessing and the storied tied up in a believable, but not predictable ending. I'll be reading it again soon!
p.s. Reading mysteries on the Kindle is so great! I highlight, bookmark and annotate my way through the book to see if I can figure out who done it. On the Kindle it's so easy to pull my notes back up and compare.
