Overview

Driving home to Minnesota one night after a long road trip, Duluth detective Jonathan Stride stops by the small Wisconsin town where his mother is buried to pay a visit to her grave. As he walks through the cemetery, a local sheriff’s car pulls up and an officer steps out, pulls out his gun, and takes his own life before Stride even has time to react.

After giving his statement to the police, Stride is asked to unofficially investigate the reason behind the suicide by the officer’s young widow—a woman who several years earlier had become famous as the survivor of a horrific kidnapping—and to clear out of town as soon as possible by the sheriff, who is up for reelection.

Against his better instincts, Stride becomes enmeshed in a gruesome and suspenseful search for a local killer who knows things no one alive should know—and who may kill again to keep it that way.

    Compelling and Intriguing ¿ Freeman¿s Best Effort Yet¿! I star

    Compelling and Intriguing — Freeman’s Best Effort Yet…!

    I started this book at 8 in the morning…and couldn’t put it down until I’d finished it late that night…!  I HAD to know how it ended…! 

    Brian Freeman weaves the perfect tale of intrigue, giving a tight, well-plotted, fast-paced thriller that will leave the reader guessing
    right up until the very end.

    Jonathan Stride, a Duluth police detective, is returning home from a business trip to Green Bay.  Enroute, he makes a short detour to
    the small town of Shawano, Wisconsin to visit his mother’s grave.  While standing in the cemetery during a dark wintry night, he is
    suddenly the witness to a shocking act of violence.  When the local authorities arrive and begin their investigation, Stride finds himself
    in the middle of a mystery with roots that go far deeper than even he could ever imagine.

    This novella is the perfect introduction to Freeman’s Jonathan Stride series…you don’t have to have read any of his other works to
    thoroughly enjoy this book.  Freeman is a true master at giving the reader just enough detail of the characters’ backstories—but not
    so much that you feel like you’ve heard it all before.  But after reading this, you’ll definitely want to catch up on the other books in
    the series…Immoral, Stripped, Stalked, In the Dark, The Burying Place, and The Cold Nowhere…

    I would recommend this

    I liked this, not an over-powering "Got to have more" type, but was good enough to look up the author to see if he had written any more books. Discovered he has actually written quite a few. Am going to try the second in this series "The Cold Nowhere" , if good will try some of his others

    Great story and a fascinating read.

    I came back from Vietnam December 1967 and was involuntarily assigned to Duluth IAP. I lived in Duluth just a block off Lake Superior. I found the area descriptions most interesting (I was on the Honor Guard for the entirety of my one year assignment and we were responsible for military funerals for a 160 mile radius). That meant up into the Iron Range; over to Eau Claire, WI; and down to the twin cities. I volunteered for another overseas assignment and went back to Japan in February 1968. Duluth was not my favorite place, but I found the people to be religious, friendly and patriotic. All that is, but the local girl's college. I had my wife and 3 children with me, but the airmen there were so desperate for female companionship that some of them actually wore wigs off duty to conceal their military haircuts. It seems that most of the girls at the college were against the Vietnam War and the airmen were at pains to conceal their identity. This book brought back memories.

    The characters are very interesting...the story is good...the brutal nature of the murders is hard to take. Still recommend reading this book.
