This is Book #1 by Brian Freeman.
I prefer my mysteries on audiobook and I stumbled across this one about the same time the author was in town promoting his most recent release (I wasn’t able to attend, darn it!). What grabbed my attention was not only was it set in Duluth, but also in Las Vegas. Very cool.
First it was Kerry McGrath, bubbly, sweet sixteen. And now Rachel Deese, strange, sexually charged, a wild child. The media hounds Stride to catch a serial killer, and as the search carries him from the icy stillness of the northern woods to the erotic heat of Las Vegas, he must decide which facts are real and which are illusions.
And Stride finds his own life changed forever by the secrets he uncovers. Secrets that stretch across time in a web of lies, death, and illicit desire. Secrets that are chillingly immoral.
I really enjoyed this book with three exceptions (there shouldn’t be any spoilers here):
1) At the beginning of the book, the main character throws a pack of cigarettes into the canal, and thus, into the lake. WTF? Seriously? Littering Lake Superior? Not cool.
The rest of the book was outstanding. Go read it.
