The Crooked Street – Brian Freeman


I received this book as an Advance Reader Copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an objective review.

Frost Easton is back in what could be his most dangerous assignment yet! Years ago, Frost and best friend Denny parted ways over a girl. Frost hasn’t seen him since – until his doorbell rings, and he open the door to find Denny there – and he collapses in front of him, managing to utter one word before his death… ‘Lombard’.

A Detective with the San Francisco PD, Frost quickly learns that there was nothing ordinary about his ex-friend’s murder, as he was killed with an unusual poison. Tasked with the investigation, Frost learns that Denny owned a large yacht in the area and was known for his high-profile cruises with the elite. But why would anyone want him dead?

Shortly afterward, he meets PI Dick Coyle under unusual circumstances, as Dick believes Denny was killed by a serial killer. Initially Frost is skeptical, but an unusual finding quickly changes his mind, and he and Coyle join forces in the search for a killer. But Frost quickly learns that he has caught the attention of a very powerful person, who will stop at nothing to keep his secrets. Unable to trust anyone, not even his chief, Frost attempts to take down the mysterious Lombard…or he’ll die trying…

A fabulous new read from Brian Freeman that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief long after the book is finished. Non-stop, edge-of-your-seat adventure – I dare you to be able to put it down before the last page is turned!! Simply awesome!!
