Make Mine with a Twist! June 15, 2011

I’ve always loved books with that surprise zinger at the end ever since I read Sidney Sheldon’s The Other Side of Midnight back in the ’70s.

A new author I’ve discovered that provides me that same satisfaction is Brian Freeman. The first book of his I read wasThe Burying Place. Although it is the fifth book in his series featuring police detective Jonathan Stride, I didn’t need to read the others first to know what was going on. And, boy did he lead me along thinking I knew who the killer was…until that final twist!

Of course, I had to go back and read his other books. So far, I’ve read the first two books in the series, Immoral and Stripped. Both were great reads with complex characters, multiple plot twists, and…that same surprise ending.

 I can’t wait to finish up with the rest of the series!

I just stumbled on this blog when surfing for tags that match my own blog references. Thanks for the tip about Freeman. I’m a big mystery and thriller reader, but hadn’t heard that name before. Now I need to go to the Mystery Guild site and add him to my wish list.
