Following a twisted trail, Stride uncovers a sordid web of violence and voyeurism that someone is willing to kill for in order to keep hidden. His lover, Serena Dial, a homicide cop turned private investigator, is chasing a blackmailer who knows all the city's dirty secrets, even Maggie's. But as Stride and Serena hunt for a killer, a predator is hunting them, with a terrifying plan for revenge.

"The world is a dark and brooding place, filled with sexual fantasies and disturbed individuals dead set on fulfilling them at any cost, even death. This is the setting for Brian Freeman's latest novel, which centers on Investigator Jonathan Stride and his search for answers in the winter-ravaged city of Duluth, Minnesota. Narrator Joe Barrett steps into this world with a large palette of voices and accents but ventures too far over the line of believability. Barrett's overenunciated and overacted characterizations take the honesty out of Freeman's atmospheric thriller. Listeners will be disappointed with the performance of this otherwise captivating novel. L.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
