Jonathan's wife had been killed just a few short months before this story begins. Jonathan is just beginning to realize that Eric, his son is also grieving and that he must somehow get himself together to help his son. Jonathan drops Eric off to school, leaves and goes home. The phone rings-----Eric has be abducted. Let the suspense begin!!
Can the local detective and the FBI agent assigned to the case ultimately find where Eric has been HIDDEN? They follow clues from the definitely seedier parts of town-that part which thankfully few of us have ever had occasion to visit; ruthless mobsters, child pornography and child slavery rings. And NO I am not telling you more because I want you to read this one-it will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat. There will be a sequel--if the Epilogue is to be believed. I give this book a 5 star rating and am looking forward to the next installment!
About the book (from the back of the book)
Six-year-old Eric Allen vanishes into thin air one rainy morning after his dad drops him off at school. Detective Dave Munoz and FBI agent Craig Walker are called in to solve the case. But how can they even know where to begin, without a single witness or a shred of evidence?
As they increasingly become convinced that the bright, handsome youngster has been kidnapped, the two lawmen also come to realize that it’s not only Eric’s life that hangs in the balance, but also that of the boy’s distraught father. Jonathan Allen is still grieving the mysterious death of his wife a few months earlier; now, the disappearance of his son threatens to destroy what’s left of his world.
Munoz and Walker grimly and painstakingly piece together a complex puzzle. Their investigation draws them into a tangled web of dark secrets and sinister activity that seems to stretch from some of New England’s seamiest neighborhoods to some of its most posh addresses.
As the days pass, the likelihood of finding Eric alive rapidly diminishes. And it seems that the people who might have helpful information about the child’s disappearance keep turning up dead. Can the two lawmen crack the case before it’s too late? Can they find where little Eric Allen has been hidden?
Hidden takes readers on a tour through New England’s roads less traveled, including its red-light districts, quiet suburban neighborhoods, and even its hallowed halls of justice. Along the way, Hall pauses periodically to pull back the picture-postcard facades and reveal startling secrets behind closed doors in the lives of seemingly ordinary citizens.
This book can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and whereever fine books are sold.
