A bit of a dramatic book, relationships are in focus and big decisions are made. ( )

A serial killer is terrorizing the country side in a small town north of Duluth, MN. Jonathon Stride, erstwhile investigator with the Duluth police, is nearby recovering from a nearly-fatal ending of book 4. A friend asks him to investigate not these murders, but the disappearance of her 11 month old niece who was home alone with her ambivalent surgeon dad at the time.

Typical with Freeman books, there is a lot of misdirection. Clues all seem to implicate the surgeon, who, as a total asshole, gets little sympathy from anyone. Meanwhile, Stride's detective girlfriend, Serena, is also helping with the case while Stride's deputy, Maggie, latches onto the serial killer investigation. Evidence in both cases are not quite adding up, mostly because the principals in the investigation are all being evasive or dishonest. Ultimately, the cases converge with an unlikely character at the center.

Meanwhile, the relationship between Stride and Serena is strained, mostly from the psychological trauma Stride is coming to terms with. When he has liaison with Maggie, however, the breaking point is reached. Serena moves out at the end, but not so far away as to miss the next book. ( )

Another great entry in the series. Never saw the ending coming, which I like in a mystery novel. I'm very glad the next Stride installment is coming out soon. ( )
