It's the boldest, most satisfying Ridley Pearson novel ever-the one that confirms his status as today's most powerful thriller writer!

No one writes heartpounding suspense like Ridley Pearson. In Undercurrents, his taut, edge-of-the-seat plot gripped you from the start and didn't release you until the sharp, thrilling conclusion. In Probable Cause, he brought you to a whole new level of hard-edged excitement. Now he turns it up another notch, in Hidden Charges.

In this "complex tale of greed, power and passion" (Indianapolis News), a shopper's paradise becomes a city under siege-held hostage by a madman armed with the skills and the weapons of a trained soldier, and possessed with an uncontrollable lust for vengeance, destruction...and death.

This book Hidden Charges was a nice find. A well written book. A few pages of boredom but that was to be expected. The storyline was nicely done and I found it suspenseful. There was not alot of technical jargon that sometimes spilled over from book to book (never look back -terrible) but it was just enough here to make you coming back for more. A few nice twists and the ending was a bit different than I imagined it would be. Ridley is good at what he does. The Boldt series is by far his best work but these are nice filler books I like to call them
