My Musing ~ Hidden by Karen E. Olson

HiddenHidden by Karen E. Olson is the first book in a suspense thriller with Nicole Jones. Publisher: Severn House, November 2015

Nicole Jones – if that is her real name – lives off the grid. She doesn’t have a license, passport or bank account. She definitely doesn’t own a computer. She hasn’t left her refuge, Block Island, in fifteen years. She’s hidden from the world and she likes it that way. Nicole doesn’t use a computer, not because she’s afraid of it, but because she’s afraid of what she – a badass hacker in her past life – would do with it.

When the last person Nicole wants to see suddenly reappears, using a name he knows will draw her out, Nicole realizes that her time hidden is now ending. Her past secrets tumbling into the open and her carefully-constructed new life set to fall apart, Nicole must re-hone her long-suppressed computer skills in order to escape from an island that is no longer a haven, but suddenly a prison.

This fast-paced, action packed and riveting drama kept me in suspense from beginning to end, quickly becoming a page turner. The author presented this tale in a way that put me smack dab in the middle of all the action that had my adrenaline pumping as I had to know what happens next. In a twisty sought of way, the narrative became my haven as I watch from afar as the characters’ role played out in this engrossing tale of a past life infringing on the present. I enjoyed this book which is a new direction by the author and I applaud what she has accomplished in the telling of this grippingly engaging story.

    Sounds fascinating. Having lived in New England all my life and having gone to Block Island many times in my younger years, this is very appealing to me.
