Another fine read by Mr. Freeman. I have read pretty much all of Mr. Freeman’s books except for In the Dark. Which I still plan on reading. I was blown away by Mr. Freeman’s debut novel, Immortal and knew that this author would be big, even before the hype really started spreading.
I could tell that I had missing a little by not reading In the Dark, as there was some reference to why Stride was on leave and recovering but nothing that really took away from this book or the story line. Speaking of story lines, this one had some well placed twists and plenty of intensity. All of the female leads in this book were strong, confident women. I liked this. Plus they matched well with Stride. Don’t let The Burying Place get buried on your tbr or wish list. Start reading this book today.
