Lovereading view...

An escaped murderer is out to wreak revenge on the woman who had him locked away, she just happens to be Selena Dial the private eye companion of Jonathan Stride. As you can imagine a suspenseful psychological thriller begins. Freeman really is a master of suspense and if this was a film you’d be hiding behind a cushion if not the sofa!!

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.

Synopsis

Stalked by Brian Freeman

Lieutenant Jonnny Stride knows his partner Maggie is in trouble when she reports a deadly crime on a bitter winter night. Maggie's obviously hiding a terrible secret, but she isn't the only one. A seductive young woman has disappeared, leaving behind a trail of lurid fantasies and a cryptic message.

With his ex-cop girlfriend Serena, Stride uncovers a sordid web of violence and voyeurism someone is determined to keep secret. As they hunt for a killer, a predator with a vicious past is hunting them. Every step they take is bringing them closer to a showdown, amid howling winds and blinding snow -- where survival is measured in seconds...and crimes can be buried for ever.

Reviews

'[STALKED] should be on the to-read list of anyone who enjoys novels by authors like Harlan Coben, David Baldacci, and Jeff Abbott - a perfect blend of psychological suspense and crime fiction' * Chicago Tribune * 'A strong narrative crammed with twists and studded with sex and violence; a mysterious, even mystical, sense of place; and a well-crafted set of characters and relationships' * Publishers Weekly * 'STALKED is scary, fast-paced, and refreshingly well written. The characters are... sharply drawn... Freeman has another winner. A really great read' * Nelson DeMille *'
