#BookReview “Everywhere to Hide” by Siri Mitchell

on Tour October 1-31, 2020


5/5 stars!

Leaving her barista job one afternoon, Whitney Garrison finds a man lying on the ground in the alley, blood oozing from his head. Shocked, she glances around, seeing no one until she looks up and sees a man with a gun on the roof.  Before he can aim at her, a garbage truck rambles down the alley and the man disappears.

It isn’t long before a mass of law enforcement is on the scene investigating and asking questions. What did she see? Did she know the dead man? Can she identify the killer? Though she has the dead man’s blood on her hands from trying to rouse him and she saw the gunman on the roof, Whitney can’t identify either man. Not because she doesn’t recognize them, but because she can’t… Whitney has prosopagnosia—face blindness.

Having just left a relationship where she endured emotional and physical abuse, Whitney’s nerves are already frayed. She works two jobs while studying for the bar exam and stresses over the massive student loan and credit card debt she amassed. The police investigation only adds to her burden, especially when a connection is found between the murder and an internship Whitney had done for a congressman who chaired the House Financial Services Committee.

Whitney finds kindness in Detective Leo Baroni, the case’s lead investigator, but when it’s discovered Whitney has a stalker and he’s escalating, turning her life upside down, Leo’s interest becomes personal.

This was an excellent read with a great plot device! First-person POV is not my narrative of preference, but author Siri Mitchell nails it. With a protagonist who doesn’t even recognize herself, the story is still engrossing as Whitney has to rely on hairstyles, clothing, voices, and journal notes to identify people around her.

A killer with surprising motivations contributes to a nice, twisty ending. Readers of thrillers and suspense will love this one and the attention to detail!

Enjoy!


Synopsis:

How can she protect herself from an enemy she can’t see?

Law school graduate Whitney Garrison is a survivor. She admirably deals with an abusive boyfriend, her mother’s death, mounting student debt, dwindling job opportunities, and a rare neurological condition that prevents her from recognizing human faces.

But witnessing a murder might be the crisis she can’t overcome.

The killer has every advantage. Though Whitney saw him, she has no idea what he looks like. He knows where she lives and works. He anticipates her every move. Worst of all, he’s hiding in plain sight and believes she has information he needs. Information worth killing for. Again.

As the hunter drives his prey into a net of terror and international intrigue, Whitney’s only ally, Detective Leo Baroni, is taken off the case. Stripped of all semblance of safety, Whitney must suspect everyone and trust no one—and hope to come out alive.
