Summary

Eleven years ago, the Co-Ed Slayer murdered nine female college students on the Oregon State University campus. Lacey Campbell barely survived his attack, but he killed her best friend, Suzanne, whose body was never found.

Now a forensic odontologist analyzing teeth and bones for the state medical examiner, Lacey is devastated when she identifies Suzanne’s remains at a crime scene. She finds comfort in the arms of ex-cop Jack Harper, and sparks fly between them, even as a new reign of terror begins.

Someone is killing the witnesses who sent the Co-ed Slayer to prison a decade ago. All the evidence points to the Co-ed Slayer as the culprit, only he’s long since dead. So who’s the new killer? And is Lacey next in line to die?

Golden Heart finalist Kendra Elliot unites in-depth forensic knowledge with a passion for thrillers. Set amid the snowy backdrop of Oregon, Hidden creates spine-tingling chills.

Excellent

Wonderful book with a good story line. Twists and turns to keep you guessing. Plot twists that smack you upside the head.

such poor narration!

It is rare that I cannot finish listening to a book but with this one I could not get past the poor narration.

Not great

The story wasn't bad but the narrator's voice really irritated me and in fact gave me a headache. The voices for different characters weren't as good as most I've listened to.

Unable to finish

Could not finish this book as the narrator's voice was a terrible monotonous droning sound.

ok...!

I tried. I really did, but the awful 'mechanical' sounding voice made this impossible to listen to. The voice reminded me of the voice on a sat nav.
The story in itself was fair, but I don't think I will rush to read the rest of the series.

Some chronically clanger lines...

It is good that this author has developed as a writer and story teller over the years as this book is just a myriad of stereotypes and terrible lines, my favourite being, "even a lesbian would have reacted to his masculinity". Give me a break!!!! I skipped a great deal of the main characters descriptions of each other and their attraction. Genuinely only so much one person can take. If you want depth and substance go for Elliots later books.

Enjoyable

It was an easy listen. Enjoyed it and characters easy to follow. A good storyline but worked it out too soon.

Monotone Reader

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The info blurb gave away too much. This ruins the first surprise.

What didn’t you like about Kate Rudd’s performance?

Very monotonous

Did Hidden inspire you to do anything?

Dumb question. This is a book about catching a serial killer.
