4.0 out of 5 stars Fast-paced and gripping, 20 Mar. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Immoral (Paperback)
Two young and beautiful teenagers disappear into thin air from Duluth, Minnesota. First it was Kerry, a few months later Rachel. Lieutenant Jonathan Stride is in charge of the investigation along with his colleague Maggie. Rachel has a wild reputation and as they look into her past, they uncover some uncomfortable facts, most of which seem to be disturbingly linked to her own family. However, without a tangible trace of either girl, Stride and Maggie seem to run in circles. After some painstakingly difficult further research and interviews to the related families and friends, some evidence does turn up (still, no girls) and a lawsuit ensues. This is as far as I can go without spoiling the tale, which takes us from the cold winter in Minnesota to the sweltering heat of Las Vegas.

Well, I was quite impressed by Mr. Freeman's style -this was the first book I read by him and I believe the first one he published-. Awkward and disturbing in more than one part due to the delicate nature of the main subject, it is however written well, every little details is taken care of and you are kept guessing until the very end, literally. I liked the character of Stride especially, very believable and down-to-earth. His private and personal life, along with those of all the other main characters, run on parallel grounds with the main story.

A page-turner that shall make you think.
