Kathleen George returns with the sequel to The Odds, the Edgar®- nominee for Best Novel
 
The new book in Kathleen George’s stunning Pittsburgh-set police procedural series begins when a young mother dies in a hit-and-run accident caused by two young brothers. Desperate and afraid, Jack and Ryan Rutter flee to Sugar Lake, the summer community where they vacationed as children. As Detectives Colleen Greer and Richard Christie search for the brothers, Jack and Ryan create a terrifying hostage situation. As fast-paced and brilliantly plotted as the book that earned her an Edgar® nomination, Hideout is a riveting police procedural like no other.

COMMANDER CHRISTIE SLAPPED DOWN a file folder and got up to look out his office door. It was late on a Saturday in early May and there was nothing going on in Homicide. Some of his detectives were relieved about the slack; others were restless. The few who were in were slogging through paperwork.

REVIEWS

Praise for Hideout

Praise for HIDEOUT
 
"Stellar...An expert at handling investigative details and pacing, George makes readers care about the people who are about to confront each other. The inevitable violence hurts because it matters. Told in lean, efficient prose, this is a top-notch, emotionally satisfying police procedural." --Publishers Weekly (starred)
 
"This outstanding police procedural brings the detectives ever closer with a tense and chilling buildup, in which amorality confronts old-fashioned ethics...Edgar-nominated George’s (The Odds) latest entry plays to her strength: psychological character study. Once again she explores what happens when kids are forced to make their own way in a complex world. This would appeal to Dennis Tafoya and Tana French readers." --Library Journal
 
"A winning combination of nuanced character study and expertly plotted, nitty-gritty police procedural." --Booklist
