“Pinter is in fine form with Hide Away. You’ll burn through the pages.” —David Baldacci
From the bestselling author of the Henry Parker series comes a page-turning thriller about a vigilante who’s desperate to protect her secrets—and bring a killer to justice.
On the surface, Rachel Marin is an ordinary single mother; on the inside, she’s a fierce, brilliant vigilante. After an unspeakable crime shatters her life, she changes her identity and moves to a small town in Illinois, hoping to spare her children from further trauma…or worse. But crime follows her everywhere.
When the former mayor winds up dead, Rachel can’t help but get involved. Where local detectives see suicide, she sees murder. They resent her for butting in—especially since she’s always one step ahead. But her investigative genius may be her undoing: the deeper she digs, the harder it is to keep her own secrets buried.
Her persistence makes her the target of both the cops and a killer. Meanwhile, the terrifying truth about her past threatens to come to light, and Rachel learns the hard way that she can’t trust anyone. Surrounded by danger, she must keep her steely resolve, protect her family, and stay one step ahead, or else she may become the next victim.
“Pinter has crafted a wonderful mix of a domestic family saga, a suburban thriller, and a crime novel. It’s a blend of Michael Connelly and Harlan Coben with a dash of Batman, and Rachel is a single mother version of Bruce Wayne. This is vigilante justice done right, and Pinter balances all of these elements without veering away from the core of the story: family. This appears to be the start of a series, and it will be great to see Rachel in action again. Grab this and hide away somewhere until the last page is turned.” —Associated Press
“Pinter does a masterful job of ramping up suspense about the Marin family’s past and the current case, spinning an absolutely riveting plot with a cast of full-bodied, fallible characters, in what seems the start of a promising series. Fans of both domestic thrillers and police procedurals should get in at the start.” —Booklist (starred review)
“Pinter’s (The Darkness) outstanding series launch is a deft combination of domestic suspense and police procedural that recalls the works of Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay. Both an unstoppable force of nature and painfully human, Rachel is a heroine readers will not soon forget.” —Library Journal (starred review)
