Hidden is the fourth book in the gripping Ash Park Series by Meghan O’Flynn. This story has just taken this series to a whole new level of intensity. I am so impressed with Ms. O’Flynn’s ability to spin an intense thriller- her stories just get better and better as the series evolves. The amount of tension, suspense, and clever twists that she is able to instill into her story makes for excellent and mind-blowing reading. I picked up this book as soon as I had finished book #3 and didn’t come up for air until I had read every word. I was glued to the pages from beginning to end and absolutely loved every mind twisting minute.
This book could be read as a standalone, if you wanted to, but there is a recurring cast of characters and snippets of backstory and other information that pops up in this book- so reading all the books would give you a much bigger picture and provide a greater perspective- which will give you an even better reading experience. All the books are fantastic, intriguing and suspenseful, so you really have nothing to lose!
Detective Petrosky has been a favourite character of mine throughout the series so far, and knowing a little of what he’d been through made him so much more realistic and relatable. I felt for him and hoped he’d find some peace and resolution from the heart crushing event that haunted him. All through this series I’ve wanted to delve into his story a little more, and in this book, I got way more than I bargained for. I wanted to run, look away, hide my kindle and not read any further at times because it was quite dark and harrowing – but at the same time the gripping nature of the story, and the superb characters had me needing to know what happens- and so I read on, my eyes glued to every word. There were shocks, surprising developments and some clever scene setting by Ms. O’Flynn, that really amped up the intrigue, shock and awe. This investigation had Petrosky risking everything with this ‘latest’ case. All I could do was hang on to the edge of my seat as I was swept along for the ride.
I finished reading this book A while ago now, and I keep thinking about it still. I am wondering what the next book has in store for me?
Thank you, Ms. O’Flynn!!!
