Publisher's Summary

Ten years ago, six-year-old Catalina Mateo hid under the porch of her family home while a knife butchered her mother and a bullet killed her father. Now a rough-sleeping orphan, Cat arrives at the house of Detective Jonathan Stride, pleading for protection. Drenched in the icy waters of Lake Superior, she claims to have narrowly escaped a cold-blooded killer.
Stride's raw instinct is to protect Cat, whose late parents' case - and his personal guilt associated with it - still sends a shiver down his spine. As a result, he takes the troubled teenager under his wing.
But Stride's partner, Maggie Bei, is not convinced. She doubts the sincerity of this beautiful young streetwalker who has so easily won Stride's trust, and now sleeps in his house with a butcher's knife under her pillow.
As Stride continues to care for Cat, Maggie's suspicions solidify, and a single question occupies the void between them: Should Stride be afraid for, or of, this terribly damaged girl?

Didn't disappoint

If you could sum up The Cold Nowhere in three words, what would they be?

Intriguing, captivating, suspenseful

What did you like best about this story?

Brian Freeman's books always grab my attention and are the kinds of stories I find it difficult to walk away from. I have to admit that being a Minnesotan I like the fact that his stories take place in Minnesota locales that I am familiar with.

Have you listened to any of Joe Barrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Joe Barrett is probably one of my favorite narrators. His voice is so easy to listen to, soothing rather than grating. He distinguishes between different characters without over doing it.

Any additional comments?

It grabbed my attention from the very beginning and never let it go.

As always, fantastic story

One of the few authors that continue to keep me guessing to the very end. Superb writing, excellent narration, time well spent.
