My Book Review:
In Hiding, author Jenny Morton Potts weaves a riveting psychological thriller that easily draws the reader in with its dark storyline that follows the complex connection between Rebecca Brown and Keller Baye.
The story begins in 2007 with the tragic death of Rebecca Brown's parents in an auto accident. At the age of four, Rebecca and her brother Austen and sister Colette were sent to live with their paternal grandparents in Scotland. But the siblings' family history is held in secrecy; their grandparents refuse to answer any questions about what has happened in the past.
In 2021, Keller Baye plans revenge after watching his imprisoned father be put to death in a North Carolina jail. Keller crosses the pond with a new identity in search of Rebecca, who is now a grown woman and a successful standup comedian. Keller plans to destroy Rebecca's life.
This captivating and gritty tale is rich in detail and vivid descriptions and has intriguing and suspenseful twists and turns that leaves the reader with no other option than to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. As a diehard fan of psychological thrillers, I must admit that this story exceeded my expectations. The dark intensity of the alternating storylines and the complexity of the intertwining connection between Rebecca and Keller's families kept me thoroughly riveted and so engrossed, that I literally had to finish the story in one sitting.
With a complex and realistic cast of characters, the author does a phenomenal job of delving into both families' long-held secrets, lies, and betrayals; Rebecca's quest for the truth; and Keller's need to stalk and plan revenge for his father's death. The author transports the reader into this fast-paced white-knuckle storyline with her creative interweaving of a psychological cat-n-mouse game between the characters that leaves the reader's heart palpating while holding their breath until the surprise ending. It just doesn't get any better than this!
Hiding is one heck of an adrenaline rush that is a must-read for the true diehard psychological thriller junkie!
