because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I m glad this book was free Very contrived and predictable Characters were so stereotypical that I thought I was reading a Hallmark Christmas movie script All the twists were telegraphed chapters in advance Way too much descriptive text I love a good psychological thriller but it can t just be that the main character is crazy and none of the story happened Ugh I found myself skimming pages because I knew what was going to happen and I was right. This was okay, but I did do some skimming in the middle of the book I didn t really care for Lisa for a long time, and then it was almost too late when the gist of the story was made clear.

page 80 28% Theif River falls was a January first reads fromTo be honest I wished I selected a different book.The whole story is ridiculous, the character relationships contrived but mostly the characters are illogical and unrealistic The writing style basic and lacking connectivity to the reader.What happens Well Lisa is an author she lives by her self and has a knock at the door late at night by two police officers Lisa doesn t open the door excepts she hides from them and spying from the window Errr Hello Why wouldn t a normal perfectly innocent person with nothing to hide like Lisa open the door to police That s the first thing that stuck me as odd.Later that night she finds a small boy hiding in her barn The boy can t remember anything about how he got there or even his name What would you do first Ring the police hospital child services Yep any of those three is acceptable in this situation What did Lisa do you ask Well she decided to wash the boys clothes and clean him up Face palm oh my for goodness sake woman what is wrong with you She makes up some story in her head that this kid is in danger he may very well be but its not your job to save him, THAT S WHAT PROFESSIONALS ARE FOR Anyway fast forward to morning ish time and Lisa gets her friend to come round for advice Forgot friends name it s not important anyway Let s call her Thingy Thingy visits and after discussing whether to go to the police or hospital with Lisa She leaves having not convinced her Thingys role is pointless, thingy is an idiot too What sort of friend allows their friend to essentially kidnap a child because that s what this is Kidnap Anyway I left the story with Lisa stumbling with her bank card at the ATM I gave up I don t care what happens to Lisa or the boy They could live on a yacht in the Mediterranean Sea happily ever after for all I care.1 very disappointing star from me Thief River Fallsis a standalone psychological thriller by Brian Freeman Since I am a long time fan of his Jonathan Stride series and also his newer books, I was excited to read this new venture I was also curious about the title, since the Stride series is mainly set in Duluth, Minnesota, and this is set across the state in the northwest corner a mere 70 miles from the Canadian border and about 50 miles from Grand Forks, North Dakota The closest I have ever been to TRF is

venture I was also curious about the title, since the Stride series is mainly set in Duluth, Minnesota, and this is set across the state in the northwest corner a mere 70 miles from the Canadian border and about 50 miles from Grand Forks, North Dakota The closest I have ever been to TRF is Crookston, which I had been to numerous times back in the 1970s when I was a college student in Bemidji.Freeman s protagonist, Lisa Power is a thriller writer from Thief River Falls The story opens with a video book group in which she is asked if she is ever concerned that one of her thrillers might inspire someone to commit a similar crime and whether that would make her feel guilty Cue Twilight Zone music.Later that night, Lisa spies a young boy alone in the dark in her yard When she catches up to him, he tells her that he doesn t know his name and does not remember what happened to him He recalls riding in a truck He does not want to go to the hospital because, people die there Since he needs a name, Lisa calls him Purdue, after the character in her book, which was titled Thief River Falls Eventually, the boy remembers enough to tell her that he is in grave danger and that he fears law enforcement Lisa is determined to learn who he is and to keep him safe The result is a high risk game of cat and mouse People she thought were her friends turn out to be threats Whom can she trust She is estranged from her only remaining family member, her twin brother The phrase that ran through my was, just because you re paranoid that doesn t mean they re not out to get you The writing wasn t Freeman s usual 5 star performance Something was missing, and I couldn t quite put my finger on it Perhaps the plot felt a bit contrived Nevertheless, I was hooked And even as the action picked up and the end drew near, I was caught by surprise by the twist at the end Brian Freeman, you got me good.4 stars Creepy Haunting Thisfirst reads book is a well paced thriller that will
