Review: Hidden by Laura Griffin (Blog Tour)

Romantic Suspense



Release Date:
August 25, 2020

Synopsis from Goodreads:

When a woman is found brutally murdered on Austin's lakeside hike-and-bike trail, investigative reporter Bailey Rhoads turns up on the scene demanding access and answers. She tries to pry information out of the lead detective, Jacob Merritt. But this case is unlike any he's ever seen, and nothing adds up.

Bailey has a hunch the victim wasn't who she claimed to be and believes this mugging-turned-murder could have been a targeted hit. When she digs deeper, the trail leads her to a high-tech fortress on the outskirts of Austin where researchers are pushing the boundaries of a cutting-edge technology that could be deadly in the wrong hands.

As a ruthless hit man's mission becomes clear, Bailey and Jacob must embark on a desperate search to locate the next target before the clock ticks down on this lethal game of hide and seek.

My Review

Investigative reporter, Bailey Rhoads, is on the job when a young woman is murdered on a hiking trail in Austin, Texas. She meets up with the detective assigned to the case, Jacob Merritt but he’s not very forthcoming with information. Bailey is sure there is more to this case than meets the eye.

Jacob Merritt does not get personally involved with reporters, but Bailey Rhoads has sure grabbed his attention. When Bailey insists there’s something sinister going on, he slowly believes her when the FBI gets involved.

Against his better judgment, Jacob agrees to team up with Bailey to find a killer. They must do it before the killer comes after them.

This is an edge-of-your seat police procedural. The action never stops. As a reader, I could feel the tension Jacob and Bailey experienced. I was totally engrossed in this spellbinding drama. It’s the first of a series and I’m definitely looking forward to the next book.

A high energy drama that kept my interest until the last page. The characters are dynamic and realistic. Great start to a new series.
