Publisher's Summary

In a riveting debut thriller that has drawn comparisons to masters of the genre like Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, Brian Freeman weaves obsession, sex, and revenge into a story that grips the reader with vivid characters and shocking plot twists from the first minute to the last.Lieutenant Jonathan Stride is suffering from an ugly case of deja vu. For the second time in a year, a beautiful teenage girl has disappeared off the streets of Duluth, Minnesota, gone without a trace, like a bitter gust off Lake Superior. The two victims couldn't be more different. First it was Kerry McGrath, bubbly, sweet 16. And now Rachel Deese, strange, sexually charged, a wild child. The media hounds Stride to catch a serial killer, and as the search carries him from the icy stillness of the northern woods to the erotic heat of Las Vegas, he must decide which facts are real and which are illusions. And Stride finds his own life changed forever by the secrets he uncovers. Secrets that stretch across time in a web of lies, death, and illicit desire. Secrets that are chillingly immoral.

Pleasant listen

A fair detective story with a passably ingenious plot line. You can fast forward through the emotional and sex scenes - they are predictable and dull. The characterization of the hero, "Stride", is extremely well done; the defense attorney's characterization is, however, a poor caricature. Overall this title is a pleasant listen - a good "beach" book. I rate it a 3.7 overall.

Quite good

I can see why the reviewers were impressed with this debut novel. The characters are quite good. The depiction of the small town seems very real. And the plot is full of intricate twists and surprises that somehow make sense. The ending, I thought, was the best part. I am usually able to figure out the mystery ahead of time. In this case, I "saw it" almost at the same time as our protagonist, detective Stride. I disagree with the reviewer who said we did not have the evidence -- we did! Mr. Freeman was simply great at disguising it so you didn't even look in those particular corners.

Excellently done.
