In a riveting debut thriller that has drawn comparisons to masters of
the genre like Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, Brian Freeman weaves
obsession, sex, and revenge into a story that grips the reader with
vivid characters and shocking plot twists from the first page to the
Lieutenant Jonathan Stride is suffering from an ugly case of déjà vu.
For the second time in a year, a beautiful teenage girl has disappeared
off the streets of Duluth, Minnesota—gone without a trace, like a
bitter gust off Lake Superior. The two victims couldn’t be more
different. First it was Kerry McGrath, bubbly, sweet sixteen. And now
Rachel Deese, strange, sexually charged, a wild child. The media hounds
Stride to catch a serial killer, and as the search carries him from the
icy stillness of the northern woods to the erotic heat of Las Vegas, he
must decide which facts are real and which are illusions. And Stride
finds his own life changed forever by the secrets he uncovers. Secrets
that stretch across time in a web of lies, death, and illicit desire.
Secrets that are chillingly…immoral.
