Local Author Brian Freeman Adds a Thrilling Eighth Novel to His Hit Series

Woodbury author Brian Freeman is back with Marathon, an intense installation in his Jonathan Stride series. This time the Duluth police lieutenant’s struggles are ripped from the headlines as a bombing similar to the events in Boston four years ago hits Duluth’s
own marathon.

Freeman says he intended to deal with both big picture issues while showing how those issues make changes in individual lives and families. “It’s designed to get people sharing ideas about what happens in the book and how it relates to what’s really going on in the world,” he says.

After finishing up the second book in his new Frost Easton series, Freeman says he’ll be diving into another Jonathan Stride novel, expected out sometime next year.
