Is a serial killer at work in a poor rural town? How has he (or she) Hid from Our Eyes for so long?
Someone is killing young girls and leaving them in the middle of rural route 137 in the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. The girls are dressed in fancy dresses but lack shoes, socks, purses, or ID. The first girl was found August 20, 1952. The second exactly twenty years later. The last was found this morning.
Current Chief of Police Russell is battling his town for budget as well as looking for the girls’ murderer or murderers. He has a personal stake in the game because he was the person who found the second victim. Does he stand much of a chance at solving this more than sixty year murder spree with only seven staff members?
Hid from Our Eyes is an engaging small town police procedural. Its characters feel so genuine that you will want to call and comfort them when life twists out of their control. Overall, it’s an excellent mystery that is highly recommended. 4.5 stars!
