The Crooked Street: Frost Easton Book 3 by Brian Freeman

Book: The Crooked Street

Author: Brian Freeman

Release date (if applicable): January 29, 2019

Synopsis: Frost is back. This time crime has found him and died on his doorstep. A blast from Frost's past comes to his doorstep to die, but leaves him with one clue about who the killer is. As the bodies pile up, it is up to Frost to unwind a puzzle that takes him deep into a labyrinth of a depraved network of bad guys that make one question what is behind the public personas of those in the public eye you think you know so well. 

My rating: 5 Stars

My opinion: I grow to love Frost Easton more and more with each new release. Now, my heart will always belong to Jonathan Stride, but Frost proves to be just as great and deep of a character. In this novel, Mr. Freeman was able to weave a novel that I was unable to unwind and an ending that left my jaw dropped. I can count on one hand the authors able to do this.

Would I recommend?

I don't know how in the hell he does it, but, as usual, Brian Freeman kicks ass and takes names in his newest upcoming release. Brian Freeman is probably one of the most character driven authors I've ever read. You feel you get to know his characters as real human beings. As a result, catch up with books one and two in the Frost Easton series and pre-order this book on Amazon! Don't forget his stand alone books and (one of my fave series) Jonathan Stride for some good reading. There is a reason why this man is on my top 3 list of recommended authors (and probably number one) and I am a snobbish reader.

I always say given that I am closer in his network that each new release will be my last review of this remarkable author, but every time I get wind of a new release of his, I am begging to be a reviewer. I seriously cannot figure out why Jonathan Stride has not been optioned for television/streaming yet. 

Stand Alone or Part of a Series: Number 3 in series
