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: Taschenbuch.

On the home front, Jonathan has broken off his relationship with Maggie and expressed interested in reuniting with Serena. Serena is open to the idea, but guarded. Maggie has moved on to a new relationship.
The resulting narrative is vintage Brian Freeman. A host of interesting and, yes, some ultra-sleazoid characters are introduced, all of whom might somehow be complicit in the threats to Cat’s life. Basically we have the murder mystery plot, the Stride/Serena subplot and the Cat subplot which involves her aunt, Dory, her foster parents, her relationships with a shrink and a shelter director and, most important, her emerging relationship with Stride. All of these plotlines are woven together into a complex but not confusing quilt. There is a crescendo conclusion, some sex and violence along the way (brief but intense) and a particularly satisfying ending.
Freeman found his full-throated voice several novels ago and he is now a master of commercial thriller fiction. The Cold Nowhere (the place where death lives) is one of his best. Don’t miss it, but read all of the books in order.
