Fiction/Mystery & Detective
The Ursulina by Brian Freeman
In this gripping prequel to his Edgar Award finalist and New York Times bestseller The Deep, Deep Snow, Brian Freeman takes us on Rebecca’s dark journey to reveal the truth about the Ursulina … a journey that ultimately leads to an excruciating choice that will change her life forever.
The mythical beast goes by many names. Bigfoot. Sasquatch. Yeti.
In Black Wolf County, he’s called … the Ursulina.
But to Deputy Rebecca Colder, the beast is no myth. A serial killer has taken on the identity of the monster—and with each body left behind, there’s a chilling message written in blood: I am the Ursulina.
“If there’s a contest for the best book of 2022 so far, Brian Freeman’s The Ursulina is near the top.” —Pioneer Press
“The writing is lively, the lead character is appealing, and the story is intriguing…Some prequels are written simply to capitalize on a novel’s success, but not this one. It’s a gripping suspense that stands on its own two feet and adds new layers to the first book.” —Booklist
“The Ursulina is well-plotted, intense, and a heck of a fun ride.” —Bookreporter
“No one makes the pages turn faster than Freeman.” —Kirkus Reviews
“This guy can tell a story.” —Michael Connelly
