Brian Freeman does not disappoint! I thought I was clever piecing together the puzzle before the characters did...we were all wrong! I love that while I'm on the edge of my seat whizzing through the pages my mind is constantly recalling earlier passages, trying to think like the detectives or the perp and then trying to keep up with the author. Brian Freeman books are good exercise for the brain! Highly recommend him! ( )

I didn't realize that there was a Stride series. I can't wait to read more.

Jonathon Stride has moved from Minnesota to Las Vegas to be with Serena Dial. He retired from the Duluth PD and joined the force in Las Vegas. This was a very good mystery with lots of twists and complicated relationships. Nothing is what it seems even Stride's new partner, Amanda. It seems everyone in Las Vegas has a complicated or "not as it seems" story.

There is a murderer on the loose that is murdering people and he seems to have no agenda but is truly psychotic. Upon investigating Stride thinks it may be related to a murder 40 years ago that was supposedly solved. Stride is shut down from trying to connect the current murders and the past murder by the brass.

Freeman has many colorful characters with complicated pasts. Stripped is fast paced full of twists and turns! I look forward to reading more Jonathon Stride mysteries. ( )

#2 in the series. Stride and Serena in Las Vegas where she hails from.. They decide to return to Duluth. Great characters., story unfolds nicely, some great scenes especially with Serena and Clare. A bit long with a 2nd climax ala Nesbo. An improbable scene where Mafioso Boni shoots the Governor in the knee to force his retirement from office. A fun read. So many characters it feels like an ensemble cast ( )

This was a great mystery! Not one you can guess! In this case it really did help to read the first book in the series, Immoral, as there was a fair amount of references to it. The story line was thought out and well written. I slight it the 5th star because there was a lot of sex although nicely entwined into the story making it necessary I did feel some could have easily been left out. Whoever said ,"just when you think you know howt things will pan out there's another twist" was right! I love this series and can't wait to read booi #3 STALKED! Brian Freeman is our next Harlan Coben... look out! ( )

Letto in lingua originale che, senza nulla togliere alla traqduzione di Alfredo Colitto, rende molto meglio, specie trattandosi di Las Vegas , casino' e slang locale.
Tornano Stride e Serena,cui si aggiungono i rispettivi compagni di squadra Amanda e Cordy, la storia e'piuttosto intricata, tra boss semimafiosi, malavita e vizi della citta' di Las Vegas....senza qualche rimpianto da parte di Stride del suo "freddo " Minnesota.
Nel complesso l' ho trovato fin troppo articolato, tra ricordi e colpi di scena continui, a mio avviso a volte prevedibili.Naturalmente il terzo e il quarto di Freeman sono li' ad attendermi, ma con una pausa in mezzo ^____^ ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312340443, Hardcover)

In this stunning follow-up to Brian Freeman's remarkable debut novel, Immoral, Detective Jonathan Stride discovers that there are only two ways to go in Las Vegas.  You can hit the jackpot.  Or you can get Stripped...
They looked like isolated cases: a hit-and-run and a celebrity murdered during a fling with a prostitute.  No one could ever imagine they'd be linked to a brutal crime in Las Vegas's steamy past--and that the race against the clock to corner a determined serial killer would stir up secrets long thought buried with the dead.  As detectives Jonathan Stride and Serena Dial are called separately to investigate, they have no idea what they're stepping into: a world where desperate ambition rules and loyalties know no bounds, and where their own uncharted emotions and sexual desires will reach an explosive conclusion.
Shocking, twisted, with edge-of-your-seat suspense, Stripped pushes the limits of its heroes and keeps the reader turning ever page until the last plot twist.
