Don’t miss today’s KND Thriller of the Day
by Michael Zolezzi
There are certain criminal cases that are talked about generations after the investigation is closed.
They are biopsied, broken down, with every move by the detective analyzed. These cases can make legends or goats out of the investigators.
In Hide and Seek, such a case lands in Detective Jake Skinner and his partner, Detective Dan Rico’s, laps. Having just transferred from South Bureau Homicide, Jake thought taking down an armed bank robber on his first day was as wild as the RHD ride got. He was wrong.
The kidnapping of the wife of the mayor of Los Angeles, who also happens to be a federal prosecutor threatens the core of one of the world’s most famous cities. An internal power struggle, false leads, meddling media, the victim’s own family, and Jake’s personal struggles all threaten to derail the investigation, an investigation that leads to pure evil.
