Freeman, the main character from Clair London's book 'Freeman' knows this all too well. He takes in the minutest detail, plotting, and planning, so he can be a step or two ahead of everyone else. Clare London is one of the most versatile writers I know. I marvel at Clare taking on new challenges genre-wise: horror, comedy, supernatural, or mystery, as she's done in this intriguing tale.
I enjoyed many of Clare London's books a lot, but I think Freeman is her best so far. This is a grownup book in every . Clare London’s done it again. She’s sucked me into a story. I should know by now that this happens every time I read something that she’s done. This is a grownup book in every sense of the word - the writing, the clever plotting, the characters (not to mention lovely sex scenes). I recognize that this might not be to everyone's taste, but for me - it was perfect.
Freeman? I turned back to face him. He’d moved behind a chair, as if he needed distance between us. Protection. The sex busines. ou know? The parties.
I listened carefully for any undertone in his words, knowing I’d get no more explanation if I pushed him now. He sounded honest; he sounded bitter. Whoever and whatever other people might think he was, Kit himself thought he was no-one special. I lifted my hand off his and stepped back. Reluctance tugged at me like something sticky. I looked over to my coat, hanging on the back of the couch. Freeman? I turned back to face him.

Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard. The strength of Freeman’s voice is gripping and sure, but Clare London spins a different take on her protagonist from the classic examples, both with Freeman being gay and also with the amount of information he holds back both from the reader and himself. It is only gradually that key details are fed in, an approach that adds to the tension and sense of mystery.
