Overview

A taut thriller about two rural Minnesota towns locked in a deadly feud--and a teenage girl caught in the crossfire.
 
Linked by the Spirit River, the two towns couldn't be more different: in affluent Barron, a powerful and secretive scientific research corporation enriches its residents, while downriver in blue-collar St. Croix, victims of that company's carcinogenic waste struggle to survive. The bad blood between the communities escalates into open warfare when the beautiful Ashlynn, daughter of the corporation's president, is found shot dead--and a St. Croix girl, Olivia Hawk, is accused of the crime. Reluctantly, Olivia's mother summons her estranged husband Christopher, a Minneapolis lawyer, to come defend his daughter. As Christopher strives to unravel the mystery of Ashlynn's murder and save his own daughter, he uncovers some ugly truths that endanger the residents of both towns. And looming over everything are the chilling, apocalyptic threats from a murderous psychopath known only as “Aquarius.”

    You have to read this!

    Grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Brian Freeman is an amazing writer and this book didn't disappoint. I was so keyed up I stayed up until 2:00 on a work night to finish it!

    Freeman just keeps getting better and BETTER!

    Jonathan Stride fans will have to wait until the next Freeman book to see him in action again, but SPILLED BLOOD is another nail-biting, suspense-filled page-turner.
    As usual, Freeman develops the depths and passions of his characters and the conflicts among them, but in a new way this time,swirling around environmental issues and small-town rivalries.
    Also as usual, he kept me guessing until the very end.

    Engrossing!

    Excellent read even for a second time. Great writing and storyline.

    I really hate when fairly recent books get a cover change due to republishing / re-release. I just read this book last year and bought it again thinking it was a new book for $10. That is the biggest Nook e-book drawback. I will have to pay better attention going forward. I' ve been burned three times.

    Another fantastic story

    Brian Freeman has, once again, kept me glued to my seat until I finished the story. This book was well written with just the right amount of intrigue and suspense. Being a father myself, I was caught up in the thoughts and actions of the characters.
    Storyline was good and the plot was laid out very well. The characters were believable and " human" to a point that I was able to connect with some.
    Good job Mr. Freeman.

    Christopher Hawk, an attorney, is called to defend his teenage d

    Christopher Hawk, an attorney, is called to defend his teenage daughter for murder. He believes that she is innocent but not a whole lot of others people in the small town his ex-wife moved to do. There is an on going war between the towns on both side of the river and the Hawk family is caught in the middle. Well written and hard to put down and was a great way to spend an afternoon on the sun.

    Much more intense than the previous Brian Freeman books

    I haven't finished reading the book yet because this isn't as easy a read as Brian Freeman's previous books. This book is much more violent and aggressive. I am, however, enjoying the book and looking forwartd to the outcome.

    Good mystery

    Brian Freeman has great gripping ideas for plots but his one problem is that he tells us too much about some characters and not enough about others and moralizes too much. His main character, who is quite flawed is allowed too many actions and is too condescending as we get to the end.In this story the whole concept of marco and his vendetta, a polluting company, and Chris and his love for his family work well together but Chris uses his daughter to move so many plotlines that Olivia, the daughter, becomes quite unlikable .

    Excellent - definitely recommend this and any of Brian Freeman's books.

    Always alot of twists and turns so it keeps you interested throughout the book. He writes in a way that you really feel like you know the characters and since I'm from the Northern MN area its fun to read about places you can actually visualize.
