I rarely give out any 5 star ratings as I believe that they should only be awarded to outstanding pieces of work, Stalked easily fits into this category.
The story has a bit of everything that makes an excellent crime novel, Murder, suspense, blackmail, obsession, sex and jealousy.
This is the 3rd installment involving Jonathon Stride and in my opinion Freeman's best yet. Stride's partner Maggie Bei's husband is murdered in their home in the middle of the night, shot with her own weapon. Maggie is prime suspect and has secrets she cannot even trust Stride with. With all damning evidence pointing towards Maggie, Stride has to work quick to solve the mystery before more people are murdered.
Excellent charecters, emotional storyline, strong dialogue, if you enjoyed Immoral and Stripped, you're guaranteed to enjoy Stalked!
Brian Freeman is becoming my favourite crime writer and i'm really looking forward to his next book, 10/10.
