Publisher's Summary

International Thriller Writers Award-winner and best-selling author Brian Freeman has established himself as a master of psychological thrillers. In Season of Fear, Freeman returns to the sun-drenched beaches of Naples, Florida, and the idiosyncratic world of Detective Cab Bolton.

Attractive and popular politician Diane Fairmont is running for the Florida governorship, but a chill is cast over the campaign when she receives an anonymous note announcing the return of the assassin who killed her husband 10 years earlier. Because of complicated ties between Fairmont and his mother, movie actress Tarla Bolton, Detective Bolton is assigned to the case.

As Bolton struggles to penetrate the veil of secrecy surrounding the Fairmont campaign, he begins to realize that the death threat is not the only danger faced by the campaign staff. A desperate race against the clock ensues as Bolton tries to unlock the secrets of a poisonous conspiracy before nature provides the perfect cover for a long-dormant killer to strike again.

    Story
    "Cab Bolton - brains, looks & $-who can ask 4 more?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would. Why? Because it happens to be a good book with plenty of suspense and intrigue.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes it did. You really don't find out the whole story until the end. There are a few subplots that really could be a story by itself but mixed in to this story's main plot really adds to the twists.


    What does Joe Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Joe Barrett is an excellent narrator. I first heard him doing Brian Freeman's Jonathan Stride novels. Now I look for books that he narrates.


    Any additional comments?

    I have either read or listened to all of Brian Freeman's books and have enjoyed everyone. This character is different then the J Stride novels in that this character has quite a bit if sarcastic humor thrown in where Stride maintains his seriousness. I thoroughly enjoy his style of writing. This book moved right along at a good clip. I didn't find any lulls and that's always a plus. It's been a while since The Bone House and I'm glad to see this character reappear. I certainly hope there will be more of him and Stride. I gave this Five Stars all around and Highly Recommend, it's worth the time.

    "Many Twists and Turns"

    This is a great book of suspense with a number of twists that you don't see coming. While getting all the characters straight is a little challenging in the beginning, you're able to hone in to the key ones pretty quickly. If you like trying to figure out who the villain is, you'll love digging into this one.

    "Great Characters. Good Mystery"

    This second book, more than its predecessor, sets up the beginning of a really solid detective series. Its a great mystery revolving around a gubernatorial race in modern day Florida. Detective Cab Bolton's movie star mom is dead set on fixing him up with her best friend's campaign manager. She openly disapproves of LaLa, Cab's Cuban, detective girlfriend. So Cab is hired by his mother's protege to investigate threats, past and present on the life of a gubernatorial candidate.

    I can't go into detail regarding the history without a spoiler, but a very talentedand ingenious, yet emotionally wounded young lady named Peach finds herself at the center of a string of murders, including that of her older brother and boyfriend. Her investigation leads her to Cab's door. During the investigations a very powerful and evil villain is exposed, but not dealt with. Its the beginning of a great new partnership.

    So there's the hero, Cab Bolton, a great looking, 6'9" police detective with a famous, movie star mother. His girlfriend Lala, also a great detective. Peach, their sidekick.

    This is going to be a fun ride!

    Story
    "Means justify the ends, in this case the epilogue"

    As in the first of this series (and this one can be a stand alone) the plot is twisted and full of surprises. Cab is "seduced" into a political malstrom that he must unravel before a hurricane hits. Again, Freeman develops characters that are fun to follow. Their flaws make them more realistic. This story is about dirty politics and dirty secrets that end up destroying lives. The ending makes no sense because the killer, who you are lead to believe is a vengeful serial killer, is not and in the end shows no guts to finish his life work. And then the epilogue...If it's a new PI series you are looking for, this is worth the credit.

    "Great story, characters and narration"

    I am a big fan of Brian Freeman and find his characters believable and interesting without ever going over the top to caricature. I can't wait for the next Cab Bolton!

    "Another winner"

    I think I preferred The Bone House, but this is quite good as well. This author is great at twists and turns. I am a bit lukewarm about the main detective character, (diamond earring, spiky hair, suits and corvette - Hollywood mother - meh) but there are interesting characters that make the books good. Narration is good. I'll be checking out more novels by this author.

    "awaiting more Cab Bolton"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Season of Fear to be better than the print version?

    Why why why do you ask this question! Don't most people get Audible for the audio?


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, Cab, of course.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Barrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes and fine


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes.

    "Wow!!!!"

    I absolutely loved this book. I was a little unsure at first, however once I got into it I was hooked. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat at times. I instantly became a fan of Peach. I would love to see her in future books. I do not know if there are future Cab Bolton books in the works, I am keeping my fingers crossed. Fantastic series, definitely worth a credit.
