IMMORAL by Brian Freeman (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Winner of the 2006 Macavity Award for Best First Mystery!
For the second time in a year, a beautiful teenage girl has disappeared off the streets of Duluth, Minnesota. The search for the killer carries Lieutenant Stride from the icy stillness of the north woods to the erotic heat of Las Vegas, where he must decide which facts are real and which are illusions.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrator, Joe Barrett. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“Joe Barrett takes charge with great poise….[He] handles the gender changes and local accents with precision and delivers this thriller with ease.” (AudioFile )

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy thrilling crime novels, or who are fans of Brian Freeman’s “Jonathan Stride” series.
Lieutenant Jonathan Stride is suffering from an ugly case of déjà vu. For the second time in a year, a teenage girl has disappeared off the streets of Duluth, Minnesota—gone without a trace, like a bitter gust off Lake Superior. The two victims couldn’t be more different. First it was Kerry McGrath, bubbly, sweet sixteen, and now Rachel Deese, a strange, sexually charged, wild child. As the media hounds Stride to catch a serial killer, the search carries him from the icy stillness of the northern woods to the erotic heat of Las Vegas, where he must decide which facts are real and which are illusions. Stride’s own life becomes 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.
