The Hiding Place




A powerhouse of psychological suspense unravelling the dark secrets of a small American town

Sometimes it's easier to believe a lie . . .

Twenty-five-years ago, the disappearance of four-year-old Justin Manning rocked the small town of Dove Point, Ohio. When his body was found in the woods two months later, the repercussions were felt for years.

Janet Manning has been haunted by the murder since the day she lost sight of her brother in the park. With the twenty-fifth anniversary of Justin's death looming, a detective and a newspaper reporter have begun asking questions, opening old wounds and raising new suspicions. Could the man jailed for murder be innocent? And then a stranger appears at Janet's door in the night, claiming to know the truth.
