Welsh Week: Hidden by Emma Kavanagh

HE'S WATCHING

A gunman is stalking the wards of a local hospital. He's unidentified and dangerous, and has to be located. Urgently.

Police Firearms Officer Aden McCarthy is tasked with tracking him down. Still troubled by the shooting of a schoolboy, Aden is determined to make amends by finding the gunman - before it's too late.


SHE'S WAITING

To psychologist Imogen, hospital should be a place of healing and safety - both for her, and her young niece who's been recently admitted. She's heard about the gunman, but he has little to do with her. Or has he?

As time ticks down, no one knows who the gunman's next target will be. But he's there. Hiding in plain sight. Far closer than anyone thinks...

A man has caused a bloodbath at the local hospital. He's killed several people and nobody's safe. Why did he do it, what caused him to do something so horrible?

In the days before the shooting tension has been building up. Journalist Charlie has trouble getting rid of the father of a boy who has been shot by the police a year earlier. The boy is in a vegetative state and he wants justice. Police officer Aden was there, but didn't shoot. His two colleagues both pulled the trigger and have been suspended. After all that time they're finally back on the job, but they can never forget what happened that night. They're all seeing Imogen, a psychologist who works at the hospital. She's struggling with her relationship. Dave, who is a colleague of Charlie is behaving strangely and she doesn't know if there will be a future for them. The problems don't stop there, her twin sister Mara is having secrets and Imogen's niece is being admitted. Mara won't leave her daughter's side. Things keep getting worse and Imogen's thoughts are with the little girl.

The shooter is someone they all know, it's someone among them, someone they see on a regular basis, but who is it? They don't see it coming and they can't prevent it from happening.

Hidden is being told from different points of view. That made the story so good. The reader knows something terrible has happened, but not who's responsible and who will survive. Everyone could be the person who's done it. That made this book such a gripping read. I had to know, I couldn't stop reading and couldn't put the book away. This is one of the best thrillers I've ever read. The story behind it is believable and solid, the research that has been done is thorough, which makes Hidden such a strong book. The writing is great, everything clicks and the execution is perfect. I highly recommend this book, I absolutely loved it.
