I have yet to read Tudor’s first book “The Chalk Man”, but heard great things about his writing and just had to get my hands on his newest book, “The Hiding Place”.
Thank you Crown Publishing for sending me my free copy in exchange for my honest review.
Joe is a teacher returning to his hometown and the school he went to as a child. He never intended to come back to town, but he’s got some scores to settle. Something happened to Joe’s little sister and he’s determined to get revenge. What exactly did happen to her?
WOW! Talk about a powerful prologue! I had to take a deep breath after reading that one. This book had a little more horror than I had anticipated, but it still held my attention the entire time. This is an intense suspnseful story that you may only want to read in the daytime. I will make a note here: I have not read similar books such as Pet Semetary by Stephen King. A lot of people have compared this book to it, which I wouldn’t know much about. That being said, The Hiding Place is a first of it’s kind for me. The storyline is written like a typical suspense/horror story – nothing too unique. Again, more on the horror side than I wanted. For that, I don’t see myself reading it again.
