Can We Talk?

Two chances to talk about THE BOURNE DEFIANCE next week…one online and one in person! Don’t miss my event in Vero Beach, Florida fans!

New York Times Bestseller

The New York Times Mass Market Bestseller list is out today. And…WOW, there’s the paperback edition of THE BOURNE SACRIFICE at #10.

It’s the perfect way to get ready for my next Jason Bourne book, THE BOURNE DEFIANCE, which comes out in hardcover, e-book, and audio on July 25.

Jason Bourne faces the reader dead-on, his body in silhouette, a gun in his hand. The title THE BOURNE SACRIFICE is in yellow against a background of green diagonal lines.

Minnesota Book Awards

Wow! Love to see THE URSULINA as a finalist for the Minnesota Book Award.

This is my 7th time as a finalist…which makes me feel proud (and old)! I last won the award two years ago for THE DEEP, DEEP SNOW…so there’s some beautiful synergy in having THE URSULINA as a finalist, too.

What a great roster of books and authors in all of the categories this year. Enjoy all of them!

Audible Daily Deal (December 24)

Santa knows you were good this year. I REMEMBER YOU, with incredible narration by Carlotta Brentan, is today’s Audible Daily Deal…just in time for Christmas. Ho ho ho!

It’s only $3.99 for Audible members and non-members alike! (Plus, you can get it through Amazon, too.)

But hurry…the deal disappears just as Santa is getting ready to come down the chimney!

The Zero Night

Have you read THE ZERO NIGHT yet?

This is the 11th novel in my Jonathan Stride series — and yet, as many readers and reviewers have pointed out, you can dive right into this book even if you’re new to the series. You’ll get a full, rich look at the characters, and then I think you’ll want to go back and discover some of their earlier stories.

I’ve also been thrilled by how many readers have written to tell me this is the best Stride novel yet. That means a lot after almost 20 years in this business!

Here are some of my favorite quotes from readers and reviewers:

“This was one of the best books I have ever read. From the first sentence on, it was gripping, fascinating, embracing, with a climatic ending.”

“THE ZERO NIGHT, the 11th installment in Brian Freeman’s first-class Jonathan Stride series, introduces us to a keen mystery before flowering into an outstanding character-driven piece about Stride and his wife, Serena….Freeman produces some of his most poignant work to date”

“Races like a speeding bullet.”

“This book blew me away and I did not want it to end….by far the best book in this terrific series.”

“Perfectly balances plot twists and character development.”

I hope you’ll get your copy of THE ZERO NIGHT today!
