A Booklist Best Mystery of 2016 Selection

A Denver Post Best Seller

"Goodbye to the Dead
is a superior psychological thriller that adroitly weaves obsession, sex and revenge into a page-turning mystery. At the end there is the Freeman hallmark: a shocker of a plot twist that turns everything that's gone before upside down."― Open Letters Monthly

"Freeman skillfully weaves together diverse story lines, from the old murder to a sex-slavery operation, with twists that build suspense, in this fine, character-driven addition to a strong series."
Booklist (Starred Review)

"If you're looking for a full docket, Freeman pays off in spades."―Kirkus Reviews

"This is by far the best book in this terrific series and I cannot wait to see where we go next with Stride, Serena, and Maggie."―Dru's Book Musings

"Deftly plotted seventh Jonathan Stride novel... Stride's heartfelt memories of [his deceased wife] and his reluctance to to fully commit to [his girlfriend], coupled with an in-depth look at the book's supporting characters, make this police procedural a standout."―Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"Readers are still discovering Brian Freeman and Jonathan Stride. One can read Goodbye to the Dead without knowing what has gone before, but be assured that you will want to clear a space on your bookshelf for the other volumes."―Bookreporter

"A twist-filled psychological suspense novel exploring the nature of good, evil, duplicity, obsession, love and the power of past decisions."
Huffington Post

"Master storyteller Brian Freeman knocks it out of the park with his latest Jonathan Stride crime thriller. . .hugely addictive. . .This compelling police crime thriller should be on everyone's must-read list."
Fresh Fiction

"This incredible author is perfect when giving clarity to both past and present. If there is a way to say 'higher' than 'highly recommended,' I wish I knew it. Because this is one of those thrillers that go above and beyond."
Suspense Magazine

"[Stride is] in the compnay of Bosch, Thorne, Tennison and Skinner, some of my other favorite detectives time has not mellowed."
Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Right up there with [Freeman's] best . . . Goodbye to the Dead is a superior psychological thriller that adroitly weaves obsession, sex, and revenge into a page-turning mystery."
Open Letters Monthly

"Goodbye to the Dead delivers page-turning surprises and action . . . another winner from an author who, 10 years later, just keeps getting better and just keeps mastering and perfecting the art of the psychological thriller."
Duluth News Tribune

"Filled with suspense and a powerful ending, Goodbye to the Dead is a summer must-read."
Michigan Home Magazine
