Hide Away is the first installment in Jason Pinter s new Rachel Marin Thrillers The opening segue of the series is an edgy page turner that revolves around one woman s quest to keep her children safe and to ensure justice is served This is vigilante literature at its finest Mystery cloaks Rachel Marin and her children A horrific crime shattered their lives seven years ago, and now the single mother lives in hiding with her emotionally wounded son and precocious daughter When a disgraced woman is found dead on an icy river, first appearances point toward a suicide But Rachel knows differently and, much to the chagrin of Detectives John Serrano and Leslie Tally, sets out to prove the woman was murdered Pinter has crafted a tautly paced procedural with this tale The mystery both that of the murdered woman and of Rachel s past is unraveled with Sherlockian panache The writing style is crisp and unadorned, and Rachel is a character readers can easily invest in The deep bond of motherhood is evident on the page, as is Rachel s penchant for and obsession with solving crimes She is clever, though perhaps just a bit too clever on occasion, and driven by a promise to protect those who cannot protect themselves The rest of the cast of characters have enough depth to satisfy the characters motivations without being a detailed character study.The strength of Pinter s story lies in the portrayal of the protagonist s emotional struggle to balance the risk she brings to her children with her crime fighting compulsion This is a dark, twisted mystery filled with surprising twists and evocative emotion Hide Away is an engrossing start to a new series Highly recommended for fans of strong female protagonists, murder mysteries, and stories of vigilante justice Many thanks to NetGalley and Thomas Mercer for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Sometimes behind the kindest eyes lay the darkest hearts Seven years ago Olivia Powell and her children devastated and life would never be the same again.Rachel Marin and her two children have changed their identities and moved to the small town of Ashby, Illinois Rachel has spent the last seven years preparing herself so no one will ever hurt her or her children again.Then one day, as she tries to live a quiet, unassuming life, she sees that a friend of hers is dead the ex mayor of their small town While the police see suicide, Rachel sees murder.I ve enjoyed author Pinter s books in the past and this is a winner and the start of a new series featuring Rachel In the past seven years she has trained vigorously and has become a part time vigilante.This was an exciting story, sad but fulfilling I liked the characters not just Rachel but the two detectives she becomes acquainted with There are twists I didn t see coming until almost the end of the book I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for book two in the series.I received this book from Thomas Mercer through Net Galley in the hopes that I would read it and leave an unbiased review. Some people don t know when to leave well enough alone Right This is one of those situations in which a single mom finds herself a target after a former mayor is killed and she s in hiding from her past trauma.Could this be a case of a jilted lover Perhaps affairs aren t the greatest way to showcase affection and perhaps money is the root of all evilJust sayin Well what can I say other than it was a quick read with plenty of twists and turns.Thank you to Jason, the publisher, NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for this honest review.
