Publisher's Summary

Jonathan Stride and Serena Dial are both investigating high-profile murders in Las Vegas. A celebrity is assassinated during a fling with a prostitute, and a young boy is killed in a brutal hit-and-run incident. When the cases converge, Jonathan and Serena find themselves racing the clock against a determined serial killer and searching for a connection to the unsolved murder of a showgirl years earlier.
Freeman's vivid cast of characters exposes all of Las Vegas' dirty secrets, past and present. And in a rooftop showdown amid the ruins of a 1960s-era casino, the chase comes to a stunning climax.
Like the author's Immoral, Stripped pushes the emotional and sexual limits of its heroes and keeps the listener riveted until the last shocking plot twist.

Vegas Setting Makes This One Work

I'll make 3 points about this book that shoud explai why I enjoyed it and you should too.

First is the remarkable set of characters. John Stride is a native Minnesotan. A simple man, accepting of others and has a great depth of character about him. This is in stark contrast with the glitter and shallowness of Vegas. His partner is transexual, wealthy, and a terrific cop on a force hellbent to destroy her. His girlfriend is also a cop. She escaped a sexually abusive stepfather at 16 and made her way to Vegas. She's street wise, but also smart and driven. So you have 3 distinct detectives, intimately involved with each other, yet from vastly different backgrounds.

Second, the story is riveting. The mystery and suspense kept me interested and surprised me.

Third is it is narrated by Joe Barrett, one of the best in the business.

Great Atmosphere

I loved this book and am eagerly looking forward to his other books. Brian does a great job of conveying what it's like to live in Duluth (where I lived for 4 years). It's also a great mystery story, with some twists that I didn't see coming, even up to the very end. It's a really fun ride to get from the beginning of the book to the end.
