The Edgar Award–winning debut of the bestselling Max Freeman mystery series: A tormented ex-cop’s mission to solve a grisly murder and earn redemption for his dark past
After a shootout during a convenience store holdup led to the accidental death of a twelve-year-old, Max Freeman left behind the Philadelphia police department for a life in exile in the Florida Everglades. Since then, he has lived in seclusion, haunted by guilt, with the humid night and the nocturnal predators of the swamp as his only company. But everything changes when Freeman discovers a young girl’s body floating in the muddy waters and becomes the prime suspect for her murder. To prove his innocence, Freeman must uncover the real murderer—and confront his own tortured soul—before it’s too late. This ebook contains an illustrated biography of the author featuring never-before-seen photos.

Good Story with a Florida Feel
Mr. King draws the reader in with a likable, reclusive character surrounded by the natural hum of a world he chooses and the incessant clatter of one he can't completely escape from. Not a typical procedural, Mr. King weaves a story from the main character's unique perspective and fleshes it out with a vivid, true landscape of South Florida that could only be written by someone who had spent time here as something more than just a tourist. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the Freeman books! :)
The Blue Edge of Midnight
This book is outstanding and the characters are excellent!! Will definitely read more books by Jonathan King.
What a thriller!
Never expected such a gripping story from a writer I'd never heard of. Tight writing, and descriptions of the Everglades that could only come from one who has been intimate with the territory. Fascinating characters who weren't stereotypes, and the twists in the story line kept me reading - and guessing - until the end. Can't wait to read his next book. Don't miss reading a book by Jonathon King - what a ride!
