The Blue Edge of MidnightLarge Print - 2002
Max Freeman's old life ended on a night that will haunt him forever. The night he killed a twelve-year-old child in self-defense in a Philadelphia shoot-out. The night he stopped being a cop. Now he lives an existence of solitary confinement on the edge of the Florida Everglades, where he answers to no one but the demons that eat away at his conscience. Until the night he finds the corpse of a child beside an ancient river. The night Max Freeman's past explodes into the present. Suddenly, Freeman is thrust into the center of the search for a killer responsible for a string of slayings that is baffling both local authorities and the FBI. Distrusted as an outsider by the longtime residents of the Glades and pulled into the case as a suspect by the police, Freeman must walk a tenuous tightrope of distrust on both sides of the law. When another child goes missing, all eyes turn to Freeman and the ex-cop, driven by his old habits and the memories of that long-ago Philadelphia midnight, knows that he has no choice but to hunt down the seemingly unstoppable murderer himself.
