PRAISE FOR THE COLD NOWHERE:

The Cold Nowhere is a triumphant return . . . a master of the psychological thriller . . . the best Stride book yet.”—Chuck Frederick, Duluth News Tribune

”Freeman delivers an edge-of-the-seat thriller that begs to be read in one sitting.” —BookPage

"Masterfully plotted . . . Freeman shows how those endless North Shore winters have toughened and aged Stride, closing him off from the world, but the author also convincingly makes Stride break out of his icy, self-imposed shell."—Publishers Weekly (starred)

"an outstanding mystery thriller."—San Francisco Book Review

"Back off, Nordic noir. For sheer wintry relentlessness and icebound desolation, the various Scandinavian settings now fashionable in thrillers cannot compete with the decaying shipping and mining city of Duluth,Minnesota. And this small city, whose crumbling mansions and factories converted to shops are an architectural reminder of an earlier era, is the perfect place for a thriller about the stranglehold the past exerts on the present. . . The narrative moves between the point of view of Stride and that of the girl’s pursuer, making this well-plotted, atmospheric thriller feel like a high-stakes chess game."—Connie Fletcher, Booklist

“[The] characters are well drawn and add believability to the surprising twists and turns of the plot. . . . The Cold Nowhere is a solid mystery wrapped around interesting characters coming to grips with their troubled pasts and searching for redemption.” —Scott Pearson, Suspense Magazine

"I don’t think I realized how much I missed the Jonathan Stride series until THE COLD NOWHERE, the latest installment, released . . . Seemingly incapable of writing a bad paragraph, Freeman is a master storyteller who makes the ice and grit and grime of street life in Duluth materialize beneath the feet of the reader. I was tempted to drive there just to check out the graffiti graveyard where the grim climax takes place. Writing and storytelling don’t get much stronger than that, and thriller fiction doesn’t get much better than The Cold Nowhere."
—Joe Hartlaub, BookReporter

The Cold Nowhere is a riveting tale where you feel that you are discovering the details along side of Detective Stride . . . well-organized and intense with well-developed characters. This psychological thriller keeps the reader engaged past the last page. . . . The Cold Nowhere is a masterful tale written by a phenomenal storyteller.” — Teri Davis, Mysteries Galore

"another rousing tale of suspense . . .  a bevy of unexpected twists and turns that make for an emotional and chilling story of page-turning mystery."—Express Milwaukee

"An outstanding mystery thriller"—San Francisco Book Review -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

The first books in the series were good. The plots is no longer realistic and I was happy to reach the end of the book...

A Bevy of Likely Suspects 2. April 2014
Von Nancy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
When it comes to Brian Freeman’s books, I have to put down all other reading material and distractions and concentrate fully on the story that is being told. Not that it is a complicated storyline, but the subtext is just as important, and in some cases, more important than the top layer that the reader is deeply focused on.

There is nothing simple in Jonathan Stride’s life, so the day he comes home and realizes that someone is in his home, his life takes a dramatic turn. To understand this turn, you have to go back ten years to when Stride found a terrified six-year-old hiding under the porch of her family’s home.

Catalina Mateo was a witness of sorts to the murder of her mother and the death of her father.

Since that time, Cat’s life has been a struggle - foster homes, an aunt with a drug problem, running away and now a life of prostitution. When a party goes wrong and a killer is chasing her, Cat has nowhere to go, that is until she remembers what her mother told her, “find Stride, he will protect you”. Now Cat is hiding out at Jonathan’s home and a killer is determined to find her.

Brian Freeman brings a bevy of likely suspects to the table. Each has a reason to want this young woman dead, but when the last snowflake falls, I was surprised as to who was behind this twisted story. I cannot say it was the last person that I would have suspected, but definitely not in my top five.

Freeman does an incredible job of moving the story forward even though most of it takes place in the past. You have to know Stride’s history and the past of all the characters to know how they intertwine in the future and to realize that no one can completely walk away from the choices that they have made.

Jonathan Stride is a great series and even though each book has a stand-alone quality, you really should start at the beginning so you can understand the relationships between the recurring characters.

Stride's Back! 8. Juni 2013
Von David M. Hyduke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Stride's back, and he hasn't lost a step in dealing with the baddies. Maggie's attitude and behavior makes her a questionable partner for him, but Serena's return gives power to this crime-solving twosome. Using Duluth and Grand Rapids as familiar backdrops are enjoyable and add great color, and Brian Freeman sure knows how to spin a tale without giving away the conclusion. We need more Stride thrillers from him.

a most excellent 5 star read! 1. April 2014
Von Annie Michelle - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A most excellent 5 star read, as usual Brian did it again!

Let me start out by saying this girl has been a Brian Freeman fan since his first book "Immoral" came out and blew me right out of the water back in 2005. That Brian and his wife live in Minnesota as do I, makes this series for me a must read!
The Cold Nowhere is another great thrill ride, the 6th in this series and Duluth PD Lieutenant Jonathan Stride is fighting the bad guys again. I was off base as to "who done it" and I love when that happens. Unfortunately I am not liking Maggie very much this time around, she was way off base treating Cat the way she did. I do enjoy a flawed character but someone needs to knock that chip off her shoulder, someone like Stride. Serena is back so the dynamic has changed, in a good way. I felt the ending was a long time coming for... everyone.
Stride is living alone now that Serena rightfully left him, in his cabin in the very cold Duluth MN. woods. He comes home one night to find footprints in the snow leading right to his door. Gun in hand he goes in and feeling a breeze blowing through the house he walks around to find a broken window. Someone is in his house. That some one turns out to be an almost frozen teenager on the floor of his closet.
Ten years ago 6 year old Catalina Mateo was hiding under the porch when her father hacked her mother to death with a knife, then with a gun killed himself. Cat heard the horror and has been running from life ever since.
With no one but her aunt Dory who has more problems than Cat herself she has spiraled into drugs and prostitution, never being able to leave the horror of her past behind. Stride was the cop who promised to keep Cat's mom Michaela safe from her old man and when he couldn't he also could never forget what happened. Cat remembered Stride from all those years ago and with nowhere to turn and someone stalking her and wanting her dead, as a last resort, she turns to him for help.
Stride decides to help Cat much to the chagrin of Stride's partner, Maggie Bei who rides him and Cat incessantly throughout the story, much to my chagrin!
A female reporter is missing and presumed dead, could she have figured out what Stride needs to know? Could it be the rich and powerful car dealer and politician Lowball Lenny with secrets of his own? Why is K2 the Chief of police on Lenny's side, what does he know that Stride doesn't? How does the sleazy psychiatrist fit in to all this? These are the questions Stride needs answered and with the help of his lost love Serena they try to figure out who wants Cat dead and why. Bodies start to pile up, the tension mounts, suspects seem to be everywhere and the ending is, well...you'll just have to read the book to see what the ending reveals! This Freeman fan will be patiently waiting for the next Stride book.

Couldn't put down 12. August 2013
Von Janice F. Mcdonald - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The Jonathan Stride series by Brian Freeman is not to be missed. THE COLD NOWHERE is a very welcome addition to a series that is full of suspense, emotion and surprise. If you have not read the earlier books in the series, do so now. You won't be disappointed.

Very slow 11. April 2014
Von ggma - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Even though I've always liked Brian Freeman books there is bound to be one that just won't grab you and this one is it.

I found it to be very very slow moving and a lot of repeating, I got so tired of the going into the past of Cat and her mother, come on! once you tell it then move on! but it is just repeated over and over and very tiresome. Then there is the 'affair' between Stride and Maggie, again repeat and more repeat and again I say -move on! Then there are just pages of nothing, I found myself skipping and skimming just to get to an important part of the story and skip the useless pages of - just nothing. Too many characters in this story and makes it hard to track all of them and remember what role they are playing and some of them are just not important and very forgettable.

When I read a book I want it to grab my attention all the way through but this one did not do that. Frankly it is just another storyline that has been done over and over and really didn't offer anything in mounting suspense or anything to say it is a thriller, mainly it was just very slow and very boring.
