review The Burying Place

Istische moordenaar een dodelijk spel met haar spelen Rechercheur Jonathan Stride en zijn team zullen snel moeten handelen om het kind te redden en de nietsontziende moordenaar te stoppen Met iedere wending in het onderzoek raakt Stride meer verstrik Number 5 in the Jonathan Stride series and I'm still loving it Best to start this from the beginning of the series for as you read the books the characters are all developing some for the good some for the bad I'll say it again I'm NOT a fan of SERENA and I hope she goes away sooner rather than later having said that so far all the books are very good keeps your interest and fast reading

Brian Freeman ↠ 4 Summary

T in een web van bedrog en hartstocht Maar de grootste obstakels zijn misschien wel de mensen die hij probeert te helpen Hoe ver zal een wanhopige moeder gaan om haar baby te redden En hoe ver zal een wanhopige politieagente gaan om zichzélf te redd From the ratings given by other readers I expected from this book I like to try out new mysterythriller authors and it appears this one doesn’t live up to my expectations I’m sorry to sayBoth plots on one side the kidnapped baby and on the other side the farmland killer were drawn out without much progress in the investigation It felt like the investigators were preoccupied by their personal lives than their current caseload I don’t know any of these characters and I don’t know the lead the detective Stride having never read the previous books but personally I thought he behaved like an empty shell all the time almost like a cardboard persona and that's not because he cheated so callously on his girlfriend It's because the author didn't give him any colors or personality So yes I was disappointed and not only by the behavior of the protagonists perpetrators and investigators alike but by the story telling as wellAll these broken people remind me a bit of the Trent books by Karin Slaughter but at least in Slaughter's books you experience authenticity gravitas and ultimately that's satisfying

    I really enjoy Brian Freeman's books and this one is no exception In The Burying Place a baby goes missing from her bed with no signs of forced entry In a separate incident a young policewoman stumbles across a heinous crime while lost in a fog Along with three other missing women Jonathan Stride has his work cut out for him He's still recovering from a brutal fall from which he's suffering from panic attacks He and Serena are drifting apart with neither of them seemingly able to fix their relationship We have a psychopathic killer a cold hearted doctor an anguished mother and a terrified policewoman The chilling story winds around their lives until it all comes together and the shocking truth is revealed

    The Burying Place Brian Freeman’s fifth thriller in the Jonathan Stride series seemed to me his darkest and perhaps his best yet It gave me the creeps the chills – you name it I got it I believe that’s what Freeman intended and he was uite successful in creating the sense of fear and foreboding on every page The opening scene is aptly set in thick fog; the mood throughout the novel is gloomy sad and uneasyThe baby of a successful surgeon and his beautiful wife is missing in the town of Grand Rapids and Jonathan Stride is called in while on hiatus from his job as a Duluth police detective to assist with the case His girlfriend Serena Dial is there to collaborate with him as wellMeanwhile his long time police associate Maggie Bei is on a mission to apprehend a killer of women in a rural farm area near Duluth It is on this case that we become acuainted with a young cop Kasey Kennedy who becomes involved when she is lost in the fog and stumbles upon one of the killer’s victims as she runs for her life Kasey follows takes a chance and takes a shot The man flees and the woman is later found dead her throat sliced with a garrote No one is happy in this book Stride is taking time off to recover from injuries suffered in his last case and is tormented by flashbacks Serena is concerned and upset because Jonny won’t talk about what’s really bothering him Dr Marcus Glenn and his wife Valerie on the surface a uintessential couple are anything but perfect and the disappearance of their young daughter brings all the defects to lightAs the story progresses we see of Valerie’s sister Denise and her husband Tom Kasey Kennedy babysitter Micki and the mystery man who is killing women in Duluth All have flaws and secrets The two cases run parallel and as in the case of other Freeman thrillers the story lines intersect Once again we wonder how are they related? Freeman does a masterful job of misdirecting our suspicions Perhaps we want to believe it is any one of several characters simply because there are a number of them who are just plain not likable Or they had a good motive But I was surprised not once but twice I have to think that in some way this was a difficult book for Brian Freeman to write He puts his main characters at a crossroad and forces them to choose and move on That made me incredibly sad and though it is probably the most realistic circumstance at this phase of the series readers become attached to characters and to the status uo and I imagine that writers find sometimes find it painful to make changes that impact the lives of their characters That’s all I can say without spoiling the storyI think this was probably the best of the Freeman’s books I didn’t finish The Burying Place with a feeling of “Yes That was a great book” Rather it evoked the feelings that I believe he wanted his readers to feel and it was a very well told story The only criticism I have is that I felt that some of his characters particularly Dr Glenn and Regan Conrad are one dimensional and stereotypical That is a minor weakness however in a superbly written suspense thriller Having recently met Brian Freeman at a library event and found him to be a very nice courteous man I am even amazed at his ability to write such twisted suspense fiction novelsI look forward to reading Jonathan Stride55 stars

    at the risk of sounding like a broken record Brian Freeman is a masterlove love LOVE his novelsBurying Place is no exception He's not afraid to put his protagonists through hell and he's just so good at making you feel for his charactersBurying place picks up shortly after In The Dark Stride is on 'vacation' dealing with the trials of the last case he worked on in the previous novel As always his love Serena Dial is with him but they're not without his issues Stride is coming to terms dealing with his near death at the end of the novel It's not a 'happily ever after' situationDuring all this two cases happen concurrently 1 a child of a wealthy power couple goes near where Stride and Serena have been taking some time away from the world and 2 a series of brutal murders of women has been taking place closer to home in Duluth Maggie Bei is back of course and she draws the serial killer case Stride is brought on by an old friend from the force for the child abduction and she's got her own personal reasons for doing soIn the midst of all this Kacey Kennedy a relatively green cop on the force actually encounters the man who's been butchering Duluth women while she gets lost while driving home in a horrible fog Getting lost changes the course of her life foreverI don't want to give too much away about the book That would be spoiling it for anybody who hasn't read it yet Freeman's great at tackling multiple mysteries while still being able to handle drama on a personal level as well Stride is collapsing and in on himself in teh wake of his near death experience and both his lover Serena and his long time partner and woman who harbors a love interest for him Maggie Bei are both struggling to deal with it and help him out If you read Stride by now you know he's not one to burden other people with his problems and taking it all upon himself may prove to be his undoingAs usual Freeman points the reader in all kinds of directions Was it the narcistic surgeon who disappeared the child? The lonely wife? Who's been killing women in the north farmlands for sport? Is Maggie really over her feelings for Stride?I will say that there were a couple of instances in the book that weren't that much of a surprise but the ending was a BIG surprise At first Freeman's great as leaving clues and subtle ones at that When all is revealed at the end it's uite a surprise and a great twist but you'll realize that all the framework is thereThe ending is satisfying but still leaves the door open for which is fine by me I enjoy all of his characters to a great extent and as long as he keeps writing them I'll keep reading them

    Number 5 in the Jonathan Stride series and I'm still loving it Best to start this from the beginning of the series for as you read the books the characters are all developing some for the good some for the bad I'll say it again I'm NOT a fan of SERENA and I hope she goes away sooner rather than later having said that so far all the books are very good keeps your interest and fast reading

    Jonathan Stride and his partner Serena Dial get involved in the case of baby Cassie Glenn who has disappeared from her home The prime suspect seems to be her arrogant surgeon father Marcus Glenn On the same night young cop Kasey Kennedy gets lost in the fog and stumbles across a woman on the run from a serial killer Despite her attempts to save the woman and catch the killer the victim winds up dead and the killer still on the runand now he wants Kasey to be his next victimGreat thriller maintains its suspense from start to finish The characters are well developed and the dialogue is down to earth and realistic These all felt like real people There are plenty of exciting moments particularly as the killer stalks Kasey The plot delivers some good twists a couple that I didn't spot coming at all My only real complaint is in regards to Stride's post traumatic stress relating to events in the previous book I've read the previous book but that was close to a decade ago and I can't remember a thing about it No real details about what happened are given here so it was hard to get my head around exactly what was so traumatic and it meant Stride sometimes came across as a bit of an ineffective sadsackOtherwise this is a terrific thriller perfectly paced reminiscent of a time before every other book in the genre centered around a silly paranoid unreliable female narrator

    I think this is the first book where I am disappointed in Stride and hate Maggie a little they both made a decision that has grave conseuences When this book starts we see Stride is in a bad place still dealing with fall from the bridge that almost killed him in the last book He seems to pull back into himself causing him and Serena to become strangers to each others Serena can see this happening and doesn't know what to do other than just be there but every day things become and awkward The kidnapping of a child draws both of them back to work giving them something else to concentrate on As the investigate they learn that these parents are not the picture perfect people their image projects I find these parents to be selfish and am surprised that they can handle having a child around at all There are times when each of them get the verbal slap down from various people and in each case they deserve itIn Duluth Maggie is running things while Stride is gone She runs across a serial killer The turns that her case takes is surprising I am not sure if this is the last book in the series or not But I am sad with the direction that Serena took at the end she really got the shaft

  7. says:

    Stride is still recovering from his injuries when he Serena and Maggie are pulled into service in a small Minnesota town An infant is missing and 3 women have been murdered The suspense is palpable and what actually occurred will blow your mind

  8. says:

    From the ratings given by other readers I expected from this book I like to try out new mysterythriller authors and it appears this one doesn’t live up to my expectations I’m sorry to sayBoth plots on one side the kidnapped baby and on the other side the farmland killer were drawn out without much progress in the investigation It felt like the investigators were preoccupied by their personal lives than their current caseload I don’t know any of these characters and I don’t know the lead the detective Stride having never read the previous books but personally I thought he behaved like an empty shell all the time almost like a cardboard persona and that's not because he cheated so callously on his girlfriend It's because the author didn't give him any colors or personality So yes I was disappointed and not only by the behavior of the protagonists perpetrators and investigators alike but by the story telling as wellAll these broken people remind me a bit of the Trent books by Karin Slaughter but at least in Slaughter's books you experience authenticity gravitas and ultimately that's satisfying

    This was a very good book that continued the Stride Serena Maggie saga Brian Freeman puts his characters into dark places and then has them figure out where to go from there I loved their interactions and look forward to the next book I have to admit Serena is not my favorite Oh and yes there were crimes to be solved They were scary emotional and resolved with a twist
