A stunning, clever, dark and suspenseful thriller from a writer compared to Michael Connelly and Jeffery Deaver.
In the quiet town of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, a baby vanishes from her bedroom in an opulent lakeside home. It looks like an abduction, but Lieutenant Jonathan Stride suspects that her father has a great deal to hide. That same night, a young policewoman stumbles into the middle of a horrific crime in an encounter which will bring a sadistic killer right into the heart of her already complicated life. Meanwhile, deep in the woods, a small and shallow grave conceals a secret that Stride and his team must unearth before time runs out...

'A writer who is firmly in control of his craft... Freeman's particular skill is in the establishment of an atmosphere of menace, conjured to perfection here' - Barry Forshaw, The Good Book Guide
'Addictive and intelligent... The Burying Place, with its darkly nightmarish title, is right up there with [Freeman's] best' - Hobart Mercury, Australia
'High tension and terrifying twists that put Freeman up there with Harlan Coben in the psychological crime stratosphere' - Daily Mail
