Hidden: First in a New Mystery Series (Black Hat Thriller #1) (Large Print / Hardcover)
This tense and twisting novel of identity and suspense marks an intriguing new departure for cozy mystery writer Karen E. Olson. Nicole Jones - if that is her real name - lives off the grid. She doesn't have a licence, passport or bank account. She definitely doesn't own a computer. She hasn't left her refuge, Block Island, in fifteen years. She's hidden from the world and she likes it that way. Nicole doesn't use a computer, not because she's afraid of it, but because she's afraid of what she - a badass hacker in her past life - would do with it. When the last person Nicole wants to see suddenly reappears, using a name he knows will draw her out, Nicole realizes that her time hidden is now ending. Her past secrets tumbling into the open and her carefully-constructed new life set to fall apart, Nicole must re-hone her long-suppressed computer skills in order to escape from an island that is no longer a haven, but suddenly a prison.
