The bad blood between the communities escalates into open warfare when the beautiful Ashlynn, daughter of the corporation’s president, is found shot dead—and a St. Croix girl, Olivia Hawk, is accused of the crime. Reluctantly, Olivia’s mother summons her estranged husband Christopher, a Minneapolis lawyer, to come defend his daughter. As Christopher struggles to unravel the mystery of Ashlynn’s murder and save his own daughter, he uncovers some ugly truths that endanger the residents of both towns. And looming over everything are the chilling, apocalyptic threats from a murderous psychopath known only as Aquarius.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This guy can tell a story.” Michael Connelly
“Spilled Blood is everything a great suspense novel should be: gripping, shocking, and moving. Brian Freeman proves once again he’s a master of psychological suspense, as he layers one family’s crisis with an entire town’s drama, building to an epic crescendo of rage, revenge, and redemption.” Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Brian Freeman is, quite simply, a first-rate storyteller.” Nelson DeMille, New York Times bestselling author
“Brian Freeman is emerging as one of our best dramatic storytellers, combining the pace of a DeMille with the plot twists of Preston and Child. Spilled Blood is the latest of his thrillers, with a small-town murder that takes so many turns that, in then end, no one can say ‘I knew it!’” Larry Schweikart, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Harrowing…Freeman ratchets up the suspense steadily, and then provides a cataclysmic ending.”  Publishers Weekly
