If you can't trust yourself, who can you trust? Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside--the woman who was killed. She's been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It's a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she'd broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she'd stopped. But since then, she's been forgetting every little thing: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn't have a baby. The only thing she can't forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt. Or the silent calls she's receiving, or the feeling that someone's watching her...

I loved it.’ Jen Med’s Books Reviews, 5 stars ‘If I could I would seriously give this book far more than five stars.’ Nicki’s Life of Crime ‘Fast-paced thriller that was difficult to put down.’ Goodreads, 5 stars ‘This is a terrifically delicious thriller... sort of like riding the world's highest roller coaster ride.

But this book was. I highly recommend this.’ Goodreads, 5 stars ‘I loved this book. It keeps you guessing all the way never knowing what might happen next.’ Goodreads 5 stars ‘Great suspenseful book that is fast paced and well written... RECOMMEND!’ Goodreads ‘A pacey crime thriller. As the novel builds to its conclusion there are several twists in the tale. In fact, it turns into a real psychological thriller! I will certainly be looking out for future books by Richard Parker on the strength of this book.’ Goodreads ‘A rollercoaster of a ride from the very first sentence. Beyond every parent’s worst nightmare, this story delivers a terrifying plot that keeps you guessing. The sort of read you won't want to put down until you have finished it.’ Goodreads, 5 stars ‘I found myself hooked right from the very first page. Hide And Seek starts with a bang and stays that way until the very end.’ It’s All About Books, 5 stars ‘OMG! Richard Parker certainly knows how to grab the reader’s attention, with a “heart thumping” opening chapter I found myself well and truly hooked.
