Overview

Once a woman of wealth and privilege, Kate Whitehead now lives an ordinary life in an ordinary San Diego neighborhood as Tricia Campbell. Two years ago she escaped her powerful and abusive husband and became a different person. She disappeared for her own safety—and that of her unborn child.

Tricia has found a measure of happiness with paramedic Scott McCall, although he knows nothing of her background, and they live as a family with her son. Then a newspaper article threatens her newfound life: her husband, Thomas, has been charged with her "murder." Tricia must make a difficult choice—protect herself and let an innocent man go to jail, or do the right thing and save a man who could destroy everything.

Hidden is the ninth stand-alone novel by American author, Tara Taylor Quinn. Tricia Campbell and her eighteen-month-old son, Taylor have been living for a year with Scott McCall, a dedicated fire-fighter/emergency worker in San Diego. But she is in hiding: she works at a dry-cleaners, she has changed her appearance, her name (Kate Whitehead), and her work (Kate was a well-known dress designer) as much as she can to avoid being found. By whom eventually becomes apparent, as she has run away from San Francisco and her influential husband, Californian Senator Thomas Whitehead. The why is (very) gradually revealed. Then her childhood friend, Leah Montgomery goes missing, and the headlines have Kate terrified. She soon realises she will have to return to San Francisco and face up to her husband, if she is to get justice for her friend and protect her son. The beginning drags a bit, but once Kate returns to SF, the story rushes into an exciting climax.

Two years ago, Kate Whitehead vanished, taking with her her unborn child. Believed dead, she has made a life for the two of them in safety, even finding love. Then, her best friend vanishes, much as she did, but likely with more deadly results. Kate knows in her heart that her evil husband has struck again. She ought to be relieved when he's arrested for not only her friend's murder, but her own. Yet, the lie behind the charge drives her to risk losing it all to step forward and clear him. Instantly, Kate finds her life and her child's in the same jeopardy from which she ran once. Now, her only hope of surviving, or more importantly to her, seeing her son survive is that the one who loves her can reach her in time. ....................................... Texas readers will be struck by the similarities between Hidden and the infamous John Hill case (Blood and Money, Prescription: Murder), but readers everywhere will be able to enjoy it. Though Kate's romance is not a prepossessive factor in the plot, it is critical to the story. Her actions may strike some as illogical, but her strength of character is commendable. The main weak spot to this book is there are times that the narrative has a jarringly graphic quality that effectively conveys revulsion.

Two years ago Kate Whitehead accompanied by her infant son, fled from her abusive husband powerful Senator Thomas Whitehead. Now in San Diego using the identity of Tricia Campbell she is happy with her life and loves her significant other fireman captain Scott McCall.--- Kate reads in the paper that her best friend Leah Montgomery has vanished. Because Thomas knew both vanished females intimately, San Francisco Police Detectives Gregory and Stanton obtain a search warrant to look into the house, office, and cars. In a vehicle he owns they find blood. They soon arrest Thomas for the murder of his spouse. Kate ponders whether she should resurface to get her nasty husband off the hook or let him fry as he deserves. Either way she must reveal the truth about herself that she hid for two years from the man she loves.--- Tara Taylor Quinn provides an electrifying clever morality drama in which the heroine must decide whether to re-emerge in order to save the life of an abusive person she believes deserves death yet is innocent when it comes to killing her. The story line switches perspective mostly between Thomas and Leah with the former plotting how to deal with intrusive cops and the latter wrestling with ethics. Fans will be pleased with HIDDEN, a character driven thriller.--- Harriet Klausner
