The Hiding Place




Four Friends. One Murder. A game they can't escape.

'It was only a game.'

Until a boy went missing.

'No one was meant to get hurt.'

But a body has been found.

'Just some innocent fun.'

Except one of them is a killer.

Ready or not, here I come.
It's time to play hide and seek again.
