Book Description

HIDE AND SEEK is the 2nd in the Mac Jackson mystery/thriller series, and can be read as a stand alone. These novels are NOT meant for children. They include adult themes, some violence and strong language, and probe into the dark, twisted corners of a killer's mind. Here are reviewers comments about the first novel in the Mac Jackson series, MADNESS AND MURDER:

4 stars: "Madness and Murder is a taut crime mystery, with a terrific underlying narrative of character interaction and a theme of second chances. There is a splendid interweaving of subplots, overlaid with a chilling murder spree." ~ A.F. Stewart.

5 stars: A puzzle solvers dream: "Hilborne does a masterful job of getting her readers connected with the emotions of her main characters, which adds a nice counterbalance to the cognitive aspects of puzzle solving. The action is suspenseful, and the backstory of key players is parsed in need-to-know doses that continually propel the plot forward." ~ R.J. McDonnell

5 stars: Great Murder Mystery: "I would really recommend this book if you like Murder Mysteries that are slightly different and not your usual run of the mill. Can't wait for the next one." ~ Carrie

The book begins:

“You have committed the most heinous of crimes, and you have shown no remorse. The court imposes the maximum sentence the circumstances will allow…life without parole.”

Many readers asked for the return of Homicide Inspector, Mac Jackson. He is back in HIDE AND SEEK and thrust into the middle of another complex mystery:

HIDE AND SEEK: A guest disappears from a private party and blood is discovered on the grounds. Abducted, murdered, or did Abby McCabe fake her own disappearance? San Francisco homicide inspector, Mac Jackson, is called out to investigate.

As Jackson questions the guests, he uncovers old hostilities and learns the details of an unusual death. He centers his investigation on the lingerie bar, where Abby once worked and where the other women are afraid to talk. His best chance at solving the case hinges on an uncooperative source and Jackson must work fast, before his source also disappears.

More About the Author

I'm a British-born author of psychological thrillers and mysteries, including the Jackson series and the Doucette series. My books are set in both San Francisco and England. As a result, much of my time is spent in both places, plotting, researching and writing.

My titles include:

Jackson series: MADNESS AND MURDER (volume #1), HIDE AND SEEK (volume #2), THE BLACKEST NIGHT (volume #3)

Doucette series: NO ALIBI (volume #1), EASY TARGET (volume #2)

Stand alones: STONE COLD.

My background is in real estate and finance which provides much of the inspiration for my stories, as does my love of travel and my experiences as an ex-pat. I've practiced martial arts in the form of Shotokan Karate and hold six belts.

A little secret about me: Unlike the fiends wandering through the text in my novels, I'm afraid of the dark.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Murder Mystery! 17 Aug. 2012
By Carrie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read all 3 books by this author, and having loved the first two I was worried in case the third one somehow didn't match up to my high expectations. I needn't have been concerned though, as Hide and Seek was without doubt just as good. I love the way the 'murder' took place in spooky woods near a mansion at Halloween ... that got my attention immediately, and automatically I was engrossed in the story and gripped throughout the whole thing, wondering at the start whether it was an actual murder or just a disappearance, and then later on wondering who was responsible. It was also interesting, and different, to hear the majority of the story told from the detective's side.

I would really recommend this book if you like Murder Mysteries that are slightly different and not your usual run of the mill.

Can't wait for the next one!

This novel is the 2nd in the mac Jackson series, and is even better than the 1st. The only problem I have with it is that I can only give it the 5 stars. From the very start this book had me guessing as to who the villain was, I found my self talking to my self , trying to figure it out. This is another book that must be read and I promise you will not be disappointed .
