Overview: What is your worst nightmare? Are you afraid of heights, snakes, needles, or something else? What if someone manipulated your mind to make you re-live your worst fears over and over again?
When a batch of women mysteriously kill themselves, their psychiatrist and a San Francisco detective race the clock to find out why these women are dying and how to make sure it doesn't keep happening.
What I loved: I chose The Night Bird as my free Kindle download through Amazon's Kindle First Program, and I'm so incredibly happy I did as it is one of the best psychological thrillers I've read recently, right up there with The Woman in Cabin 10.
The Night Bird begins admirably and dives straight into the action and suspense of the story. I was hooked from the very first chapter. The book is intense, shocking, unique, intriguing, and so much more. The plot is constantly thickening and evolving into a deeper and deeper story with every chapter.
Some scenes left my heart pounding and my head spinning. I couldn't put it down, because I simply HAD to find out what would happen next!
The two main characters, Frankie and Frost are well-developed and the reader can't help but become attached to both. I couldn't help rooting for the unlikely duo to solve the case.
I was also thoroughly impressed with the author's, Brian Freeman, writing style. Any author wanting to write a psychological thriller could learn a thing or two from Freeman. I hope there are more books in the series and I will definitely be reading more of Freeman's previous publications.
The Night Bird is simply remarkable and cleverly written, I highly recommend it to thriller junkies!
