The Ursulina by Brian Freeman

Overview

A Crime Reads Pick of Best New Books Out This Week

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.

Editorial Reviews

“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

“Some of the most literate and stylish writing you’ll find anywhere today.” Jeffery Deaver

“Brian Freeman is, quite simply, a first-rate storyteller.” Nelson DeMille

“This book is a delight to read. The dialogue is crisp and natural. The storytelling seems unflawed, with the tiniest of breadcrumbs from one chapter suddenly resurfacing and making their purpose known. The Deep, Deep Snow is one to share with friends, to recommend for book clubs, or to stash away for a second reading down the road. It's just that good.” Star Tribune on The Deep, Deep Snow

“Enthralling…Freeman brings all the characters to life, highlighting their strengths as well as the darkness that lies within each of them, thus adding a delicious sense of uncertainty as to their motives. Readers will have a tough time putting this one down.” Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Deep, Deep Snow

“From the author of the Jonathan Stride mystery series comes a crisply written story about a small-town sheriff’s deputy whose investigation of a missing-person case exposes lies and secrets…Shelby Lake, the star of the show, is a terrific character…She’s a tough, compassionate woman who absolutely will not be distracted from her search for the truth.” Booklist on The Deep, Deep Snow
