    In a riveting debut thriller that has drawn comparisons to masters of the genre like Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, Brian Freeman weaves obsession, sex, and revenge into a story that grips the reader with vivid characters and shocking plot twists from the first minute to the last.

    Overall

    Freeman delivers a complex, twisted tale. It had a few problems -- namely the first three-quarters of the book were not all that interesting. The last quarter, however, was excellent and left me anxious for the next Stride installment. Freeman uses a plot device that I really hate: a character finds out a vital piece of information that the reader is not privy to until much later. Very frustrating.

    This was my first book with this narrator. While I really like his voice, some of his vocal characterizations are really irritating. His Minnesota accents, especially for the female characters, are whiney and grating. However, his Serena Dial is very enjoyable.

    In short, don't give up on this book. I think there are great things to come from this new author.

  • Hog Heaven: Blanco County Mysteries, Book 7

    After a high-school football star dies in a late-night motorcycle collision with a wild pig, the boy's wealthy father comes up with a creative scheme to rid Blanco County of the feral pests: He tattoos the ear of one particular pig, then offers a $50,000 reward for anyone who shoots it. Game warden John Marlin is not pleased-chiefly because the bounty is likely to bring a wave of poachers and trespassers to the area. The tension rises even higher when the death of the local boy turns out to be more complicated than it originally appeared.

    If you could sum up Hog Heaven in three words, what would they be?

    Rehder's books are always a fun ride with his large cast of crazies who never fail to entertain. Hog Heaven is no different. I almost didn't download this book though because the narrator is new to the series, and I like my John Marlins to sound like John Marlin from Blanco Co., Texas. I'm not sure where this Marlin is from but it's not anywhere near Texas. There is very little distinction between Marlin, Phil, Red, Billy Don, Bobby Garza, Bill Tatum, or even Nicole...except for the chick from Russia. She didn't sound Russian, but she didn't sound Texan, either...nor did any of the others. Robert King Ross killed this book for me. I won't buy another that he voices.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robert King Ross?

    Bring back Johnathan Davis!
