She disappeared. They put her killer on trial. Then she was murdered.

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 and sweet, and now Rachel Deese, a strange, sexually charged wild child. The media hounds Stride to catch a serial killer. The search carries him from the icy stillness of the northern woods to the erotic heat of Las Vegas, where he must decide which facts are real and which are illusions. Stride’s own life becomes 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.

Immoral is a sexy, gripping thriller by a talented newcomer already sparking huge attention.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Who is Brian Freeman? This guy can tell a story. Immoral is a page-turner of the highest caliber. It has enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end.”

    Michael Connelly, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Breathtakingly real and utterly compelling, Immoral dishes up page-turning psychological suspense while treating us lucky readers to some of the most literate and stylish writing you’ll find anywhere today.” 

    Jeffery Deaver, #1 bestselling author

  • “The writing is tough, muscular, and shot through with such a sense of loss, torment, longing, torn innocence that it’s downright Celtic in its sorrow. Just as the reader and Stride figure to have the case wrapped, there’s a sucker punch you never saw coming—and it hurts wonderfully. The novel is reminiscent of Lehane, of such works as Gone Baby Gone and Sacred, when Lehane was writing this darkest, bruised, compassionate self.  Freeman’s novel is one hell of a read, gut wrenching and moving, exciting and powerful. Any book that makes you want to fly to Vegas gets my bet. Stride on.”

    Ken Bruen, award-winning author

  • “[Immoral] may very well be one of the best debuts of 2005…a near pitch-perfect first novel that soars with believable characters, crisp dialogue, and, for the most part, logical twists and turns…Jonathan Stride literally strides onto the page—flawed, complicated, and very appealing.”

    South Florida Sun-Sentinel

  • “Be warned. In the manner of the finest thrillers, nothing is as it seems in Freeman’s devilish story of revenge and double-cross.”

    Orlando Sentinel

  • Immoral is a stunning debut from Brian Freeman…A spellbinding saga of murder and retribution.”

    Toronto Globe and Mail

  • “Light the fire and darken the lights for a gut-wrenching tale of psychological suspense from a true storyteller.”

    Belfast Telegraph

  • “With Stride, Freeman has created a world-weary detective with a strong moral compass and determination. Tightly written with a strong sense of place and character…A compelling read.”

    Dallas Morning News

  • “Joe Barrett takes charge with great poise…[He] handles the gender changes and local accents with precision and delivers this thriller with ease.”

    AudioFile

  • “In this compelling debut thriller, Freeman turns in a psychologically gripping, virtuoso performance, with a detective who is likely to return. He deftly lays bare the demons lurking in many of us while keeping us tantalized through a series of plot shifts. Highly recommended.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • Immoral is a slick and savvy offering and the best debut mystery in quite some time.”

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ashley | 2/1/2014

    " This book was not good. I was extremely slow and not very suspenseful. I feel too many characters were introduced and too much emphasis was put on secondary characters. I didn't like the ending and that could possibly be because I just wanted to be done with it. I almost put this down without finishing, but I thought in the end it may have been worthwhile. It wasn't. The way the author describes the female characters and the sex scenes is the way I imagine a horny, 40 year old virgin would view women and sex. I won't be picking up the rest of this series, but I will give his new novel Bone House a try. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 j | 12/7/2013

    " Lousy title for a not-bad book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura McKenna | 11/25/2013

    " Great series. You'll really love some characters and have a strong dislike for others. Good plots, good locale, and you'll want to start the next book as soon as you finish this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Davis | 10/29/2013

    " IMMORAL introduces the reader to Jonathan Strike, a Duluth cop, and the rugged terrain and weather that Duluth, Minnesota enjoys year round. The never ending search for a missing girl weaves itself through this page turning, can't put down novel. The twists unfold gradually which kept me tension filled throughout. A great beginning to a wildly entertaining series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Magpie67 | 9/30/2013

    " Great first novel with awesome details. Loved the setting, the characters and the cat and mouse chase. The clues were subtle and evil enough to enjoy the hunt. I will continue reading this series. What was even more fun was reading this book on vacation in Minnesota. The book begins in Duluth, Mn and heads to Vegas and then back to Duluth. Now I have a hunkering to see ships passing by at all hours of the day and night. 5 stars, a must read! "

    " All of my Brian Freeman books will have the same review. I don't want to give even the hint of a spoiler. I have read all of his books and really consider his writing to be something "flying under the radar". I have a couple of authors that I feel that about. Brian Freeman's works are on a list of works that I recommend all the time. He is a must read in my book. "
