Fabulous Fiction Firsts #11

If you are expecting a pleasant little cozy, well, skip this one.

Part police procedural, part psychological thriller, and part courtroom drama, this dark tale of two missing girls in a well-heeled Duluth suburb is a complicated page-turner by a first-time novelist. In Immoral, Detective Jonathan Stride suspects murder and he is sure he has the culprit; but proving it is another story altogether. Adding to the suspense are plenty of red herring, skeletons in the closet, and the fact that the victims may not all be innocent.

Mystery reviewers everywhere agree that Brian Freeman is a talent to watch. No argument here.
