One cold night.  Two shocking mysteries.

 

In the quiet town of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, a baby vanishes from her bedroom in an opulent lakeside home.  Was she abducted – or does her father have a terrible secret to hide?

 

That same night, a young policewoman gets lost in the fog and stumbles into the middle of a horrific crime.  Now a sadistic killer wants her to play his deadly game.

 

Lieutenant Jonathan Stride and his team need to move fast to save a child and stop a vicious killing spree.  As fear grips the frozen winter farm lands, Stride knows that every snow-covered field may be the next burying place.

 

Each twist in the investigation takes Stride into an elaborate web of deceit and desire.  But his biggest obstacles may be the very people he’s trying to help.  With everything at risk and time running out, Stride worries how far a desperate mother will go to rescue her baby – and how far a desperate cop will go to save herself.

Praise for The Burying Place

Praise for The Burying Place:

“Crisp dialogue, steady suspense, and a cast of original characters drive this fifth entry in Macavity Award–winner Freeman’s excellent series.”--Booklist

“Brian Freeman is, quite simply, a first-rate storyteller.” –Nelson DeMille

"Just when you think an author couldn’t possibly take it up another notch, you read a new outing like this.  Freeman goes the distance, and then some, in his latest.... [He] is one of those rare authors that continues to surprise and beguile instead of rehashing what has come before. Highly recommended." --NewMysteryReader.com

Praise for In the Dark:

"Edgar-finalist Freeman's fourth thriller to feature Duluth, Minn., police lieutenant Jonathan Stride (after Stalked) may be his most ambitious—and accomplished—work to date.... Powered by darkly poetic atmospherics and deep character development (especially Stride, whose understated intensity, dignity and resilience are emblematic of the Twin Ports area itself), this harrowing and heartrending novel will leave readers guessing until the very last pages." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A suspenseful tale of terror and secrets kept too long." --Library Journal

"An evocative mystery, one shaded with melancholy and dusted with heartache, and one that reminds readers that life may be brutal and cold, but, in Minnesota at least, we shore ourselves against these truths and we endure." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

Praise for Stalked:

“Freeman's latest 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

“Chiling, atmospheric…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 make this one of Freeman’s stronger crime thrillers.”

Publishers Weekly

“Freeman just keeps outdoing himself with each book....a striking display of skilled storytelling that will have readers surprised more than once well before the shocking ending.”

Library Journal
