The Hiding Place




Four friends play hide and seek. One of them never returns.

Twenty years ago, Ben Draper went missing during a game of hide and seek at an exclusive boarding school.

Now his body has been found, hidden in a crypt in the grounds.

DI Fleet and DS Collins investigate. Soon it becomes clear that the kids Ben was hiding from are also the prime suspects. And they're now some of the most powerful people in the country.

What really happened on the day of the game? And what will they have to risk to find out?
