This debut novel from Brian Freeman will send a shiver down your spine with excitement at having found another great crime novelist to compare with the likes of Patterson and Cornwell. He has great plot-lines, plenty of suspense and a great new detective in the form of Lieutenant Jonathan Stride. A great new addition to the genre.
Maxim Jakubowski, a Lovereading expert voice says: Lieutenant Jonathan Stride; a small town American cop with a troubled love life whose investigations are invariably complex and gripping as he confronts scheming killers with a wild imagination. THE WATCHER is the 4th in the series, with THE BURYING PLACE out in September.
In Duluth, Minnesota, a young woman, Rachel Stoner, has gone missing. Cop Jonathan Stride, a sharply focused detective despite the stresses of his troubled personal life, is quick to suspect her stepfather of murder. And yet, he has his doubts.
Even for a man accustomed to power, the accused seems remarkably convinced he'll go free. Could he be telling the truth? While Stride endeavours to make sense of the conflicting pieces of evidence, a young woman's body lies half-buried deep in the woods. But if it's not the body of Rachel, where is the missing girl? Is she dead, or is the terrible, unexpected fate that awaits Graeme Stoner one he does not deserve?
