Detective Jonathan Stride returns in a brand-new thriller from internationally bestselling author Brian Freeman. When a freak accident kills a driver on the remote roads outside Duluth, Jonathan Stride is disturbed to discover that the victim appears to be a “ghost,” with a false identity and no evidence to suggest who he really was. What’s worse, the man has a gun locked in the trunk—and it has recently been fired. The next day Stride learns that a Duluth college student has vanished and worries that the two incidents are related. But what would have put an ordinary young woman in the crosshairs of a man who has all the hallmarks of an assassin for hire? Stride’s investigation of the girl’s disappearance leads him onto the set of a film crew in Duluth, where a movie is being made based on a case in his own past. The actor playing Stride is Hollywood royalty, an award-winning icon who has charmed his way to the top of the box office. But Stride soon hears whispers that his alter ego has a dark side and, in trying to expose the truth, discovers that he has made a powerful enemy who will stop at nothing to protect his reputation.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Brian Freeman’s latest explores the cult of celebrity and the sociopaths that it sometimes shelters…A practically perfect summer read.” Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Freeman has a very powerful writing style…A must-read!” Missourian
“Excellent…The dramatic developments unfold naturally, and Freeman doesn’t shy away from giving his lead character feet of clay. A cleverly constructed, page-turning plot and fleshed-out primary and secondary characters make this a winner.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Terrific…A thriller of the highest order that pits fame against infamy, the past against the present, and truth against lies…Will make you look at your favorite movie stars in a different light.” BookReporter
“Showcases Freeman’s great talent for juggling multiple plot lines. They fit together with his rich characters like finely honed gears, producing an intriguing and timely tale.” Booklist
