Praise For Hideout

Praise for HIDEOUT "Stellar...An expert at handling investigative details and pacing, George makes readers care about the people who are about to confront each other. The inevitable violence hurts because it matters. Told in lean, efficient prose, this is a top-notch, emotionally satisfying police procedural." --Publishers Weekly (starred)  "This outstanding police procedural brings the detectives ever closer with a tense and chilling buildup, in which amorality confronts old-fashioned ethics...Edgar-nominated George’s (The Odds) latest entry plays to her strength: psychological character study. Once again she explores what happens when kids are forced to make their own way in a complex world. This would appeal to Dennis Tafoya and Tana French readers." --Library Journal "A winning combination of nuanced character study and expertly plotted, nitty-gritty police procedural." --Booklist
