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.

This is the best in the Lt. Stride series yet! Stride deals with PTSD giving the women in his life the chance to shine.

Fifth in the Jonathan Stride novels. The story is a fast paced story with well crafted dialog and settings. Though fifth in the series it can be read standalone without reading any of the previous stories though not a bad idea to read in series. Worth reading if you enjoy the genre.

An OK read, but not exceptional. Twists & turns somewhat unbelievable.

Once again, Freeman didn't let me down. Enjoyed it thoroughly and would recommend it to anyone who loves psych crime books.

The story is over the top... but the writing is powerful.
