In this stunning follow-up to Brian Freeman's remarkable debut novel, Immoral, Detective Jonathan Stride discovers that there are only two ways to go in Las Vegas. You can hit the jackpot. Or you can get Stripped...

They looked like isolated cases: a hit-and-run and a celebrity murdered during a fling with a prostitute. No one could ever imagine they'd be linked to a brutal crime in Las Vegas's steamy past—and that the race against the clock to corner a determined serial killer would stir up secrets long thought buried with the dead. As detectives Jonathan Stride and Serena Dial are called separately to investigate, they have no idea what they're stepping into: a world where desperate ambition rules and loyalties know no bounds, and where their own uncharted emotions and sexual desires will reach an explosive conclusion.
Shocking, twisted, with edge-of-your-seat suspense, Stripped pushes the limits of its heroes and keeps the reader turning ever page until the last plot twist.

Review: Stripped (Jonathan Stride #2)

User Review  - Goodreads

2.5 stars. The writing is okay- your standard crime mystery holiday read. However the authors apparent need to define every single persons sexual orientation was a little excessive. Sure, I get this is set in sin city where sex sells but I still felt it was a little clumsy in the execution. Read full review

Review: Stripped (Jonathan Stride #2)

User Review  - Goodreads

Wonderfully refreshing in its non-serious comedic, or humorous nature. it is about a murder yes, but in Las Vegas with a hint of history. One of the main detectives being one who comes out of town (from Minnesota) is a nice touch. Read full review
