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!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
