How does a woman protect herself from an enemy she can’t see?
Law school graduate Whitney Garrison is a survivor. She admirably deals with her mother’s death, mounting student debt, dwindling job opportunities, an abusive boyfriend, 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 fight to come out alive.
“A heart-stopping ride . . . Mitchell’s deft hand with characterization and the twist y plot made this a compelling read i couldn’t put down.” —Colleen Coble, USA TODAY bestselling author of One Little Lie and the Lavender Tide series
In this unmemorable thriller from Mitchell (State of Lies), the life of Whitney Garrison, a law school graduate busy cramming for the bar exam, is upended after she finds the body of a man who was shot in the head outside the Arlington, Va., coffee shop where she works as a barista. Whitney spots someone with a gun on the shop's roof, but because she has face blindness, a condition that makes it hard for her to remember faces, she can't describe the gunman with any accuracy to the police. Whitney is able to identify the victim as a regular customer, Joe, based on the cops' discovery of a coffee cup near the corpse with a label fitting Joe's unique routine order. Whitney later becomes a target, even as she develops an improbable romantic attachment to the detective investigating the murder, which she suspects may have far-reaching implications connected to her previous work on Capitol Hill. Thin characterizations are matched by an implausible payoff. Readers who like to see good people triumph over adversity will best appreciate this one.
Everywhere To Hide
EVERYWHERE TO HIDE...by Siri Mitchell
A good description and story around facial blindness, cryptocurrency and China. Good use of real life situations and happenings she has woven into the plot. A touch of romance with Leo showing his protectiveness with Whitney yet, not over powering her. A good clean story to enjoy.
