June 20: New Audiobook

Audiobook fans, mark your calendars! My all-new, full-length novel arrives on June 20 as an Audible Original. AND it will be the Audible Daily Deal on launch day!
 
With narration by the amazing January LaVoy, this emotional mystery ripples through ten years in the life of a small town — and introduces you to an unforgettable heroine who discovers that the dead are sometimes easier to rescue than the living.

Big Deal

Coming in 2020: The Bourne Conspiracy

So…I have a little bit of news. Yes, Marcia and I have been dying to share this secret for months, and now we finally can. Putnam Books and the Robert Ludlum estate have hired ME to take over Ludlum’s famous Jason Bourne character.

Look for my new Bourne thriller THE BOURNE CONSPIRACY in 2020…!

This is truly a dream assignment, maybe the premiere opportunity in the thriller world. And on a personal level, it’s such a special honor. I’ve been a Robert Ludlum fan since I was a teenager, so having the opportunity to continue his legacy is one of the most amazing things to happen to me in my publishing career.

Minnesota Book Awards

Last night was a very special night for me:  THE VOICE INSIDE won the Minnesota Book Award for Genre Fiction.

This was the fifth time I’d been a finalist for the award in the past 14 years, and it really was such a thrill to hear them call my name. Of course, the big thanks went to Marcia for all of her love, support, and editorial wisdom. I wouldn’t have been standing up there without her.

So this beautiful award goes on my shelf next to the Thriller Award for Best Hardcover Novel for SPILLED BLOOD. Truly amazing.

 

Meet Frost Easton

April is the perfect month to get to know my San Francisco-based hero, Frost Easton.

The Frost Easton Series

And then there were three. Have you read them all?

Bookreporter

The early reviews are starting to roll in for THE CROOKED STREET.

Bookreporter, one of the great book sites that every reader should be following, just chimed in today. You can read the full review by clicking here.

Here’s my favorite part:

“I’ve described Brian Freeman’s style as incredibly smooth, and all of that is on display in THE CROOKED STREET….The end result is another stellar effort in this terrific series that seems to get more layered and personal with each new release. I can guarantee that you will be reeling after you’ve read the last line and will be hoping that the follow-up comes as soon as possible.”

Yes, words like that mean a lot to a writer. And yes, reviews really matter. I hope you’ll read THE CROOKED STREET yourself — and post your own thoughts on Goodreads and Amazon for other readers.  That really does make a difference.
