David Bell's The Hiding Place is a powerful psychological thriller delving into the secrets of a damaged family in small-town America.

Sometimes it's easier to believe a lie . . .

Twenty-five-years ago, four-year-old Justin Manning disappeared. Two months later his body was found in a shallow grave in the woods, shocking the small town of Dove Point, Ohio.

Janet Manning has been haunted by her brother's death since the day she lost sight of him in the park. Now, a detective and a reporter are asking questions, raising new suspicions and opening old wounds. But if the man jailed for the murder is innocent, who did kill Justin?

At the same time a stranger appears at Janet's door claiming to know the truth and a high school friend returns, with his own confused memories of what happened. Janet thought she'd put the past and guilt behind her. But now the truth about her brother is heartbreakingly close – has she the courage to find it?

Immerse yourself in David Bell's wonderfully gripping UK debut The Hiding Place and unravel the truth which lies buried in Janet's past. A wonderful treat for all fans of Kate Atkinson and Dennis Lehane.

Praise for David Bell's Cemetery Girl:

'Reads like a collaboration between Michael Connelly and the gothic fiction of Joyce Carol Oates . . . A winner on every level' Will Lavender

'Cemetery Girl grabbed me by the throat on page one and never let up. . . the work of a master' John Lescroart

'A haunting meditation on the ties that bind parent to child, husband to wife, brother to brother. An absolutely riveting, absorbing read not to be missed' Lisa Unger

David Bell is an assistant professor of English at Western Kentucky University. He received an M.A. in creative writing from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and a Ph.D. in American Literature and creative writing from the University of Cincinnati.

This seemed similar to Belinda Bauer’s ‘Blacklands’ at first: a young person, whose life has been affected by the murder of an uncle before he/she was born, sets out to investigate what really happened in the hope of easing the pain still experienced by mother and grandparent, putting themselves at risk of harm.

An engrossing story that follows life along the many twists and turns that this story presents. A murder of a child and the impact on the community, then, 25 years later the mystery concludes with a twist that turns the story on its head.

Slightly unusual angle to this story.

Great read, kept me gripped, a little slow in parts, disappointed with the story’s ending, but that’s because I had planned a different ending, in my head to what the author wrote, loved the twist at the end.
