Stalked by Brian Freeman

Sex Clubs, rape fantasies, rape, and serial murder are just the tip of the iceberg in this fast-paced, page-turning third novel by author Brian Freeman. Series regulars Lieutenant Jonathan Stride, his partner Maggie Bei, and his lover, PI Serena Dial are drawn into a world of danger that tests their loyalty to each other.

I read a review on this book, and it sounded like something I would really like, so I went and read the first book in the series because I didn't want to miss the set-up of the characters. While not absolutely necessary for the enjoyment of STALKED, it helped with the history of the characters. Stide's relationship with both his first wife, and with Maggie are more fully explained in IMMORAL. This is one of the best new series I have read in a long time. The characters are fully-fleshed with common human frailties; their imperfections make them more real. They are the kind of characters you root for to overcome their demons. I got scared at the end that something tragic would happen. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to see the outcome. I can't wait for the next novel.
