NOWHERE TO HIDE by Joan Hall Hovey
- Nowhere to Hide
by Joan Hall Hovey
Love the way this story begins. It isn't a book you want to read on a
stormy night when you are home all alone and the house is creaking.
Joan Hall Hovey has created an atmosphere of suspense and tension
throughout the story. It preys on your nerves like a tuneless
whistle, keeping you on edge, wanting to know and waiting to see what
happens next. A real page turner.
The heroine is Ellen Harris who receives the most horrid Christmas
gift of all--the news that her beautiful sister, Gail Morgan, has
been murdered. She gathers her courage and offers the killer a
challenge, a challenge he accepts with unforeseen consequences to
You will love to hate the twisted killer. He is almost beyond
description, something the reader should be allowed to find out on
their own. That's half the interest in the story--who the villain is,
why he chooses his victims--his demonstration of his own brand of
evil. He is the mean, sly natured boy you knew as a child--all grown
up. And you'll also enjoy meeting his Aunt Mattie.
Set against the background of New York City and a small town in New
York, the author has captured the flavor of life in both places,
grounding the story in reality. This is a cleverly woven tale of
suspense and surprising warmth of friendship. The characters are very
human. Anyone who loves mysteries will really enjoy this one. It
comes highly recommended by this reader and I look forward to Joan's
