Publisher's Summary

International Thriller Writers Award-winner and best-selling author Brian Freeman has established himself as a master of psychological thrillers. In Season of Fear, Freeman returns to the sun-drenched beaches of Naples, Florida, and the idiosyncratic world of Detective Cab Bolton.
Attractive and popular politician Diane Fairmont is running for the Florida governorship, but a chill is cast over the campaign when she receives an anonymous note announcing the return of the assassin who killed her husband 10 years earlier. Because of complicated ties between Fairmont and his mother, movie actress Tarla Bolton, Detective Bolton is assigned to the case.
As Bolton struggles to penetrate the veil of secrecy surrounding the Fairmont campaign, he begins to realize that the death threat is not the only danger faced by the campaign staff. A desperate race against the clock ensues as Bolton tries to unlock the secrets of a poisonous conspiracy before nature provides the perfect cover for a long-dormant killer to strike again.

Great Characters. Good Mystery

This second book, more than its predecessor, sets up the beginning of a really solid detective series. Its a great mystery revolving around a gubernatorial race in modern day Florida. Detective Cab Bolton's movie star mom is dead set on fixing him up with her best friend's campaign manager. She openly disapproves of LaLa, Cab's Cuban, detective girlfriend. So Cab is hired by his mother's protege to investigate threats, past and present on the life of a gubernatorial candidate.

I can't go into detail regarding the history without a spoiler, but a very talentedand ingenious, yet emotionally wounded young lady named Peach finds herself at the center of a string of murders, including that of her older brother and boyfriend. Her investigation leads her to Cab's door. During the investigations a very powerful and evil villain is exposed, but not dealt with. Its the beginning of a great new partnership.

So there's the hero, Cab Bolton, a great looking, 6'9" police detective with a famous, movie star mother. His girlfriend Lala, also a great detective. Peach, their sidekick.

This is going to be a fun ride!

Cab Bolton - brains, looks & $-who can ask 4 more?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would. Why? Because it happens to be a good book with plenty of suspense and intrigue.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes it did. You really don't find out the whole story until the end. There are a few subplots that really could be a story by itself but mixed in to this story's main plot really adds to the twists.

What does Joe Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Joe Barrett is an excellent narrator. I first heard him doing Brian Freeman's Jonathan Stride novels. Now I look for books that he narrates.

Any additional comments?

I have either read or listened to all of Brian Freeman's books and have enjoyed everyone. This character is different then the J Stride novels in that this character has quite a bit if sarcastic humor thrown in where Stride maintains his seriousness. I thoroughly enjoy his style of writing. This book moved right along at a good clip. I didn't find any lulls and that's always a plus. It's been a while since The Bone House and I'm glad to see this character reappear. I certainly hope there will be more of him and Stride. I gave this Five Stars all around and Highly Recommend, it's worth the time.
