Hilary Bradley is determined to prove that Mark is innocent, but she’s on a lonely, dangerous quest. Even when she discovers that the murdered girl was witness to a horrific crime years earlier, the police are certain she’s throwing up a smoke screen to protect her husband. Only a quirky detective named Cab Bolton seems willing to believe Hilary’s story.
Hilary and Cab soon find that people in this community are willing to kill to keep their secrets hidden - and to make sure Mark doesn’t get away with murder. And with each shocking revelation, even Hilary begins to wonder whether her husband is truly innocent.
Freeman’s first stand-alone thriller since his Stride novels is a knockout.

A Speedy Read!
I listened to this book in a day because it just keeps you guessing; did he do it? Listen a little more and think, no he didn't do it - and awhile later - he might be the killer after all - no wait - Is it____? This is my first Brian Freeman book and it will not be my last. The one thing that bothered me was his wrap up at the end. I had to "rewind" a few times to put the sequence of events in order to solve this mystery. I think the author got so excited about his ending plot divulsion, that he ran through it too fast. I did not really understand why a house getting burned had anything to do with a teacher molesting a student? Anyway, I would suggest listening to this book and say "pay close attention to the last quarter of the book!

Good story, disappointing ending
This is my second Brian Freeman book. "Spilled Blood" was actually written later, so maybe he has simply gotten better as a thriller writer. "The Bone House" started off great. I was glued to my iPhone, waiting to see how all the pieces would fit together...except that, when they did, some of the coincidences were way too implausible and some of the characters' actions were way too off-character. It's a shame because, in some cases, it felt that just a little bit more thought could have fixed the problem. But the problem went unchecked. As a result, the last quarter of the book was a let down.
Still, I like Mr. Freeman's style (even when I found myself saying, "Seriously?!," I couldn't put it down), so I have downloaded a third Freeman novel. Here's hoping for another "Spilled Blood."
Joe Barrett is the perfect narrator.
