When a freak auto accident kills a driver on the remote roads outside Duluth, Jonathan Stride is disturbed to discover that the victim appears to be a "ghost," with a false identity and no evidence to suggest who he really was. Alarmingly, a gun is found in the car--and the gun has recently been fired. The next day, Stride learns that a Duluth college student has also vanished, and he worries that the two incidents are related. But what would have put an ordinary young woman in the crosshairs of a man who has all the hallmarks of an assassin for hire? Stride's investigation of the girl's disappearance leads him onto the set of a film crew in Duluth, where a movie is being made based on a case in Stride's own past. The actor playing Stride is Hollywood royalty, an award-winning icon who has charmed his way to the top of the box office. But Stride soon hears whispers that his cinematic alter ego has a dark side...and in trying to expose the truth, he makes a powerful enemy who will stop at nothing to protect his reputation.

Good mystery with a large cast of characters (required paying attention). Story was hard to put down and flowed nicely. Both Stride and Maggie are equally represented in this thriller.

It's been several years since I read a Freeman novel & I always thought them average to just above average.
He develops interesting characters, even secondary roles are fleshed out nicely.
But his plots are just too much.
I've never, ever read 350 pages of a 360 page novel & just closed it up.
Until now.

Okay, I'll be that guy. Ft Myers is not a steaming tropical paradise in January. Temps are generally in the low seventies with Gulf temps in the mid sixties. Also, as opposed to the author's repeated references, there is little to no humidity at that time of year. I'm aware nobody cares about this but I feel better already.
