If you ever ride bareback alone in the mountains, and you discover a man chained in a deep ravine...
Leave him there.
Don’t even look back.
I’m talking about the newly released novel, THE HIDDEN, by Kathryn Mackel (WestBow Press). Occasionally, I pick up a book that is difficult to put down. But, this little treat took a hold of me as few ever have.
THE HIDDEN is about Susan Stone, a Harvard educated psychiatrist, who is still reeling from the tragic loss of her son. She returns home to help care for her father’s horse ranch, while the cantankerous old man’s bones mend following a fall from his horse.
But the ranch was no haven of pleasant childhood memories. It was a place of tragic loss and painful relationships. In the mountains, Susan discovers a young man at the bottom of a deep abyss, chained, alone in the darkness.
Add to the mix a grizzly discovery of charred bodies, demonic forces and the love/hate relationships of a dysfunctional family and you have the stage set for a gripping thriller.
Kathryn Mackel has also authored the novels THE SURROGATE, and THE DEPARTED. She is an acclaimed Hollywood screenwriter for Disney and Fox and was on the screenwriting team for Left Behind: The Movie and Frank Peretti’s Hangman’s Curse.
