Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Jonathan Stride knows his partner, Maggie Bei, is in trouble when she reports a deadly crime on a bitter winter night. She's obviously hiding a terrible secret, and her silence only feeds suspicion. But Maggie isn't the only one keeping secrets in Duluth. A seductive young woman has disappeared, leaving behind a stash of lurid fantasies and a cryptic message: "I know who it is". Following a twisted trail, Stride uncovers a sordid web of violence and voyeurism that someone is willing to kill for in order to keep hidden. His lover, Serena Dial, a homicide cop turned private investigator, is chasing a blackmailer who knows all the city's dirty secrets, even Maggie's. But as Stride and Serena hunt for a killer, a predator is hunting them, with a terrifying plan for revenge.

Critic Reviews

"Chilling, atmospheric....A strong narrative crammed with twists and studded with sex and violence; a mysterious, even mystical, sense of place; and a well-crafted set of characters and relationships make this one of Freeman's stronger crime thrillers." ( Publishers Weekly)

Really enjoyed this book

I really enjoyed this book. I hadn't read a good mystery/thriller in a long time and this book reminded me why I love them. I have never read this author before but will be looking for more books written by him.

The story was intriguing, suspenseful, twisted and kept me hooked until the very last chapter. Even though this is a long book (9+ hours) I never lost interest. I must say that the dubbing was inferior. I would rather not be able to hear the difference in tones on the track while trying to enjoy the story.

I would recommend this book to those seeking to be mystified and thrilled.

Truly Great Mystery That Sees the Story Through

You could call it a twist, but really the author does a brilliant job of weaving storylines. Its clever, witty, tragic and riveting. And just as important, Freeman takes the time to unravel and then tie together all the loose ends.

Joe Barrett is perfect for all of Freeman's work.

Great characters, wit, masterful mystery writing and narration make this a 5 Star experience.
