Lovereading view...

Brian Freeman’s second novel keeps up the standard of his first with this chilling, suspense novel. Having moved to Las Vegas Stride finds life very different from Minnesota and the pressure is on not only in his work life but also in his personal life. Mixing suspense and sexual tension Freeman has given us another gem.

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.

Lieutenant Jonathan Stride series:
1. Immoral (2005)
2. Stripped (2006)
3. Stalked (2007)
4. The Watcher (2008)

Synopsis

Stripped by Brian Freeman

Elonda's seen most things working the streets. But it's a first when her client is shot dead in the act. Detective Jonathan Stride quickly establishes that the victim is M.J.

Lane, son of a reclusive millionaire film producer. Any number of people might have wanted to kill M.J. Another death is troubling the Vegas force - that of a little boy, killed in a hit-and-run incident involving a stolen car.

Then the body of a woman is found in a remote farmhouse. Could the murders be linked? It seems the killer wants to send a message about the brutal slaying decades earlier of a nightclub dancer. That case was wrapped up quickly.

Too quickly? Someone certainly thinks so - and he's set on murderous revenge for the sins of the past.

Reviews
