DRUM ROLL…or something like that, so excited to REVEAL the cover of THE HIDING GAME…

Publication date September 5th….

And this it is such a Magic Moment for me….

Many thanks to all the amazing writers who said such lovely things about The Hiding Game….See below..

 

“A young girl on trial, a twenty-five-year-old murder, and a small town willing to do anything to keep its secrets safe…”

 

Early praise for

THE HIDING GAME – Louise Phillips

 

LIZ NUGENT

“Phillips is back with a most intriguing and compelling story of grief, loss, memory and the quest for the truth. With rich characterisation and a lively setting, this story will enthral you to the end.”

 

PATRICIA GIBNEY

“The Hiding Game is filled with characters who will grab you by the throat from beginning to end. Absolutely gripping storyline, expertly crafted, an addictive page turner. I loved it.”

 

KAREN PERRY

“The Hiding Game has everything you would expect from a Phillips novel – a pacy crime procedural full of twists and turns, with poignant insights into the emotional bond between mother and child. A cracking good read.” 

 

CATHERINE RYAN HOWARD

“A riveting, ripped-from-the-headlines legal thriller set in A Small Town in the USA with dark secrets and murky lies…which Phillips has pulled it off not only with authenticity, but aplomb.

 

ARLENE HUNT

“Phillips is at the top of her game. The Hiding Game is riveting, thought provoking and compulsive. A five-star read.”

 

ANDREA CARTER

“A gripping courtroom drama with a courageous new heroine in Heather Baxter. Pacy, tightly plotted and full of suspense. The Hiding Game was worth the wait!”

 

CORMAC O KEEFFE

“Phillips sends us down into a rabbit hole of buried trauma, disjointed memories, fractured relationships and ruptured lives in the search for justice and redemption. An undoubted master of the psychological thriller.”

 

SINEAD CROWLEY

“Phillips makes a very successful trip Stateside with ‘The Hiding Game’. The oppressive nature of life in a small town adds tension as Phillips draws together the strands of this tightly plotted family thriller.”
