#Review The Night Bird by Brian Freeman @bfreemanbooks #Suspense
I do not normally buy Kindle First books. I read the description and then I read all reviews available. Most of the time the reviews paint a different picture than what grabbed my interest in the description.
I did not buy this book based on the description. I only bought this book based on a glowing review. I am thankful that person wrote such a glowing review. I would have missed out on an amazing, thought provoking book.
This book, story whatever you want to call it grabbed me and refused to let go. No that is not right, this book kidnapped me, pulled me in and refused to release me from its grasp until I finished reading it. As another reviewer stated I can see this movie on the big screen. I can see this playing, I can see the suspense happening.
I had an intense dislike for Pam and Jason. I can halfway relate to her ‘free spirit’. But her intense verbal abuse to her sister is just annoying and wrong. Jason was just an arrogant smart ass SOB who needs to be taken down several notches.
I honestly thought I had figured out who was behind everything. I never believed it was the person Frankie kept saying. No I will not give anything away. I just did not see it coming.
My favorite character in the book was Shack of course. I am not a cat person but that is one cat I would love to meet. Or at least a cat like his character.
This book is a page turner. As I stated above it kidnapped me and refused to let me go. I even went against my employer ‘no electronic devices on the production floor’ rule to read this book. Thankfully I have a couple of wonderful supervisors that just laughed at me and walked off when I was caught reading. ‘Sorry Nissan I hope I did not look over any defect the last few days while reading’.
If you are looking for a great, page turner read then this is the book for you. Any torture is on a psychological level and not physical.
The bunnies and I (along with Rosie) highly recommend this book. Thanks for an amazing read Brian.

The Night Bird
Homicide detective Frost Easton doesn’t like coincidences. When a series of bizarre deaths rock San Francisco—as seemingly random women suffer violent psychotic breaks—Frost looks for a connection that leads him to psychiatrist Francesca Stein. Frankie’s controversial therapy helps people erase their most terrifying memories…and all the victims were her patients.
As Frost and Frankie carry out their own investigations, the case becomes increasingly personal—and dangerous. Long-submerged secrets surface as someone called the Night Bird taunts the pair with cryptic messages pertaining to the deaths. Soon Frankie is forced to confront strange gaps in her own memory, and Frost faces a killer who knows the detective’s worst fears.
As the body count rises and the Night Bird circles ever closer, a dedicated cop and a brilliant doctor race to solve the puzzle before a cunning killer claims another victim.
