After really enjoying Cold Nowere and Spilled Blood, I thought I had found a great new author that really knew how to develop his characters and tell great stories. That was before I read Immoral. I was very disappointed that the author fell into the trap that seems to plague too many of today's writers. At least in this book, he has allowed over the top graphic sex, vile language and violence to overshadow an otherwise good story. I really hope that Freeman returns to his previous style that uses sex and violence in moderation to compliment the story and not the other way around. Will

I am a fan of mystery novels and when I heard about this book on the radio last summer I decided to check it out. No regrets! This is by far the best mystery novel I have read to date. If books had ratings (which I think they should), I would rate this M for a mature audience. Brian Freeman has become one of my favorite authors. I have read 3 of his books and plan on reading them all.

This is the first book in the Minnesota Detective Jonathan Stride series.  Rachael, a teenage age girl, has gone missing, and all the circumstantial evidence seems to point to murder.  Though another teen girl went missing a year earlier, Stride and his partner, Maggie Bei, don't see any connection between the two girls disappearances.  Unfortunately,  Rachael seems to be a sexual tease, with no compassion for anyone.  There is no body, but Stride and Maggie have found enough evidence of a murder to go to trial.  Once in court, things begin to fall apart.  More information about Rachael's background adds suggestions of greater intrigue to come. I really enjoyed the developing turns and twists with this book, though the unnecessary overly explicit sex scenes were overdone for me, and really detracted from the building suspense.  I'll definitely be giving this series another try, hoping it will be kept within the mystery genre, without spilling over into too much into erotica.

After reading Brian Freeman's first novel, "Immortal," I went out and bought his other novels, "Stripped," "Stalked," and am starting "In the Dark." I honestly could not put them down once I started reading. His characters are real and engaging, his descriptions of Las Vegas, and Minnesota are right on. You feel like you're right there in the middle of the action. I highly recommend them if you like good, action, character driven, thrilling novels. Glad I lucked into picking up that first novel.

I thought this book was a wonderfully well-weaved tale of mystery, murder & mayhem. I¿m an avid reader of mystery novels and while I truly enjoy the settings, detective characters and so on - I have always prided myself on figuring out the 'guilty party' early in a book. Not so with this piece of entertainment. At various stages along the way I had it ¿figured out¿ only to discover later that I full of beans and I learned what I wanted to know only when it¿s crafty author let me. This masterpiece provided me with hours of entertainment and it was so infused with twists and turns that I constantly felt as if I were riding a rollercoaster of emotions and intrigue. Be warned that it is an addictive page turner. The dishes & laundry can and will wait. Time spent reading this one is time well spent. Period.

I completely agree with Teddy's 2005 review. The ending was disappointing, which is a pity. Freeman really had a good one going. He should have avoided Vegas. That's when his story became as unreal and tawdry as Vegas itself.

Mystery had good aspects to it. Too bad the author was not talented enough to carry the story without reducing the female gender to 'just male entertainment.'.

Seems everyone has an opinion about Rachel Deese. Her next-door neighbor Kevin Lowry has stars in his eyes just for her. His girlfriend, Sally, thinks Rachel is a ¿suck-up,¿ among other things. Rachel¿s mother finds her threatening. And just what her step-father thinks about her may never be known. But what police Lieutenant Jonathon Stride is thinking is what¿s important right now. Rachel Deese is missing. Brian Freeman¿s novel, IMMORAL, is an attempt to unravel the crime behind Rachel¿s disappearance. And it¿s not an easy crime to unravel. The victim was a wild child. Rude, self-centered, self-serving, vile, and sexually charged, she had so many enemies ¿ so many whom she had wronged or whom had felt threatened by her ¿ it proves to be a mystery not just anyone can solve. Lips are tight and tension is high. Can even a seasoned detective such as Stride break through to the truth? It would seem that he would be unable to. After all, Rachel¿s disappearance isn¿t the first of her kind in recent months. Stride is still trying to answer to the unsolved mystery of Kerry McGrath, another sixteen-year-old who vanished under similar circumstances. He has to somehow manage to fend off the press and their public accusations about his ineptitude, and still keep his mind on a case that¿s just not adding up. Will he ever find Rachel? Will the mystery be solved? IMMORAL is a fast-paced novel, filled with so many twists and turns there¿s no way the reader can be bored. The ending is a true surprise, as the mystery is solved and the culprit is the most unlikely (yet still believable) suspect. Jonathon Stride is a likeable character, and his partner Maggie a real fireball of loveable energy. The other characters, most of whom are dark, a bit sinister and roundly unlovable, are certainly believable, giving some real credibility to the story. The story, too, is believable and entertaining. A rollercoaster of a story, IMMORAL is not necessarily a quick read, but it is a good one, one that I¿d recommend.

A very interesting murder mystery with a definite twist that you won't see coming and then will wonder why you didn't! Well done with great character development and plot design. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book in the series!

A BOLD, STUNNING PAGE-TURNER~ Brian Freeman's debut novel is a clever mystery, suspense, thriller, and police procedural that grips the reader and holds him prisoner. Two female teen agers, from the same school district in Minnesota, are missing and no bodies surface. Evidence is scarce. but Detective Jonathan Stride and his female partner Maggie are pulled in one direction. Freeman has created a captivating detective--Stride is ruled by a code of ethics and morality; his only flaw is being somewhat romantic. He relentlessly pursues this case which leads him to Las Vegas and back home again, and the climax is unexpected. The plot is filled with cliff-hanging twists and turns and character development slowly unfolds and HOOKS the reader. Freeman is a master of suspense and artistic with description and language. Thumbs up---Caution---don't read alone

Good!!!

Not as good as I hoped it would be. The plot lost momentum during the last third and the sexual scenes became more frequent as though the author had to compensate for the thin resolution of the mystery.

WELCOME TO SNOWCLAN! Our territory is up in the mountains, with a lake and lots of trees around. There is lots of snow and some birds of prey, so we keep to the inside of a cave. My name is Stridestar, and I was a kittypet for a very long time. See this red collar round my neck? I walked all the way up here from the south with my big brother, Dirkles. He was killed by a black wolf before he could even think up a decent warrior name other than Orangeeyes, and I still mourn his loss. Although I do have a best friend John, but he prefers to stay a kittypet. I've invited him more than once, and maybe with your help we can get him to stay! I really want him to join.
