Hid From Our Eyes

Hid From Our Eyes

How do you find a killer who leaves no trace?

New York Times bestseller Julia Spencer-Fleming returns to her gripping Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne mystery series with a compelling case that spans decades.

‘Thrilling, chilling and the suspense is killing’ Val McDermid

1952. Police Chief Harry McNeil is called to a crime scene where a woman has been murdered but there is no obvious cause of death.

1972. Police Chief Jack Liddle is called to a murder scene of a woman that’s very similar to one he worked as a trooper in the 50’s. The only difference is this time, they have a suspect.

Young Vietnam War veteran Russ van Alstyne found the body and is quickly pegged as the prime focus of the investigation.

Present-day. Police Chief Russ van Alstyne gets a 911 call that a young woman has been found dead with the same MO as the crime he was accused of in the 70’s.

What connects these crimes that occurred decades apart? And can Russ solve the mystery before he’s removed from the case?

A tour de force by Julia Spencer-Fleming. Not only is this a tense mystery unfolding simultaneously in three time periods but also a poignant drama touching the flawed and very real main characters.
Rhys Bowen
I've been waiting eagerly for Julia Spencer-Fleming's new book, and it was well worth the wait. Hid from Our Eyes is an intricate, intense mystery with a chilling ending . . .This is a five-star experience that shocked me and kept me reading late into the night.
