Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A seasoned thriller writer with a complex tale of corruption and murder on the Florida political scene. It’s very good, excellent escapist stuff. This is the protagonist Cab Bolton’s second outing and ends with an interesting scenario for the third … I like it. Fast-paced, convincing and enthralling the various personalities and their interaction with each other are well painted. The background is pitched at a level that supports the main storyline without swamping it. The red herrings are convincingly set up and slowly discounted, the twists are feasible and utterly delicious, all in all a great read.

If you like Brian Freeman you might also like to read books by Stuart MacBride, Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly.

Synopsis

Season of Fear A Cab Bolton Thriller by Brian Freeman

Lake Wales, Central Florida. Ten years ago, a political fundraiser became a bloodbath when a hooded assassin carried out a savage public execution. Three men were massacred, casting a dark shadow over the Sunshine State. A decade on, history is threatening to repeat itself. The widow of one victim, herself now running for governor, has received an anonymous threat - a newspaper clipping from that fateful day, along with the chilling words 'I'm back.' Florida detective Cab Bolton agrees to investigate the threat against this candidate, Diane Fairmont: an attractive politician who has a complicated history with Cab's mother, Hollywood actress Tarla Bolton - and with Cab himself. But by doing so, Cab is entering dangerous waters. Fairmont's political party is itself swamped in secrecy - a fact that, unknown to Cab, has led one of its junior staff to start asking very sensitive questions about the death of a party employee. Both Cab and this young researcher, Peach Piper, are digging up the kind of dirt that ten years can't wash away. And as the powerful crosswinds of state politics swirl around Cab and Peach, and the threat of a tropical storm hangs over Florida, this whirlwind of pressure and chaos will ultimately unearth a poisonous conspiracy, and reawaken a killer who has lain dormant for a decade.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
