PERFECT as a novella

I would love to know the story behind Brian Freeman deciding to make this a novella instead of weaving it into another full novel. Was it something he wrote and it didn't fit in another novel or he just created this as a separate story? Whatever it was, it was EXCELLENT! And it will barely tide me over until his next book is out! I hope Joe Barrett always narrates his books. I can't imagine anyone else in the "role."

For the Freeman fans - This review is for you

I have to tell you - I am through the first part of "The Cold Nowhere" and this book is not a prequel. It stands on it's own and I liked it a lot. It was a fast past non abridged short story & I'm starting to wish The Cold Nowhere was a lot shorter. Back to this book though. The ending was great! This was a very good psycological thriller. Brian Freeman is one of the few writers with repeating characters that I follow. The Cold Nowhere review to follow.

5.5 hour novella?

I'm calling it a novel. I'm a fan of author Brian Freeman and narrator Joe Barrett; both do an excellent job. Freeman tells an excellent story that is filled with the suspense he normally delivers.

Love Johnny-Boy

I like the mystery and the characters. I am a huge Freeman/Barrett fan. However, I thought this little novella had waaaay too many characters to keep up. I had to go back and re-listen several times throughout the story to keep up and get it.

Gee he should stick to full length novel

I found the book to be confusing. Just another book - nothing special. Too many characters.
