Immoral: This is one of the best books by Brian Freeman. In the Jonathan Stride book series, the author focuses on a police lieutenant, Jonathan Stride, a police detective who is world-weary and has a mystery to solve about a precarious and immoral teenage girl, who has gone missing. With that said, all the books by author, Brian Freeman are not only full of colorful characters but also all the locations that the author selects also play a key role in his writing. Despite the fact that his book, Immoral could be referred as a Topos, Immoral has been impeccably executed. The author does not only aspire for psychological depth but also has shown that he can create excruciatingly vivid descriptions of people and places, which in turn shape up this debut novel. However, it should be noted that Brian Freeman is a master weaver of exceedingly complex plots.
