Winner of the AudioFile Earphones® Award!

When their cases converge, they find themselves racing the clock against a determined serial killer.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-nominated narrator, Joe Barrett. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
“Barrett deftly handles the rapid-fire dialogue, believable plot shifts, and wide variety of voices and accents. In dusky, appealing tones, Barrett turns Freeman’s deliciously decadent diversion into compelling listening.” (AudioFile)

RATING: Suitable for adults who enjoy thrilling crime novels, or who are fans of Brian Freeman’s “Jonathan Stride” series.
Jonathan Stride and Serena Dial are both investigating high-profile murders in Las Vegas. A celebrity is assassinated during a fling with a prostitute, and a young boy is killed in a brutal hit-and-run incident. When the cases converge, Jonathan and Serena find themselves racing the clock against a determined serial killer and searching for a connection to the unsolved murder of a showgirl years earlier.
Freeman’s vivid cast of characters exposes all of Las Vegas’ dirty secrets, past and present, and in a rooftop showdown amid the ruins of a 1960s-era casino, the chase comes to a stunning climax.
Like “Immoral,” “Stripped” pushes the emotional and sexual limits of its heroes and keeps the listener riveted until the last shocking plot twist.
