The Hiding Place is the story of two adults that come to terms with a murder of a child that occurred twenty-five years ago when they were seven. Michael, a close, childhood friend of the murdered boy’s sister, Janet, returns to the small, western Ohio town where he was raised. Janet and he, along with Janet’s teenage daughter and the detective who investigated the murder originally, piece together the events that actually took place that fateful day.
The author, David Bell, interleaves the present and past with a deft hand, gradually revealing the story as it is reconstructed. The reconstruction takes several surprising twists, which provide page-turning suspense.
Bell’s characters are attractive and well developed, and the narrator, Fred Lehne, does a great job maintaining the suspense that infuses the novel. I look forward to listening to other books by Bell.
