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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! May 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second book in the series revolving around Detective Mac Jackson, but can easily be read as a stand-alone. One of the things I love about this series is that Jackson is more of a minor character. We don't get caught up in his ego or personal life, so each story is fresh, with new characters to get to know. Hilborne could write 60 books like this, and a reader could pick up any one of them and immediately connect.

Hide and Seeks' plot is complex, but never confusing. As the story unfolds, little clues are left like breadcrumbs leading us down a path. The characters are well-developed and feel like real people. I was immediately sucked into their world and enjoyed every second of the journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Put me through my paces June 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third book I've read by Ms. Hilborne and what I really like about her writing is that she can create a particularly unlikeable character and make me care about what happens to them. The victim in this story is not a nice woman when we meet her, and yet I soon want to get justice for her. The puzzle kept me trying to figure out who was the murderer, and I like Mac Jackson. He's a very no-nonsense detective, who is just trying to do his best every day.

I'll read more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping suspense novel! July 5, 2012
By LauraC
I loved this book and really enjoy Ms. Hilborne's style. I am working backwards now and reading Madness and Murder and it is equally as intriguing! She writes no nonsense stories that keep you engaged and wondering what is going to happen next. The characters in Hide and Seek are interesting and exciting and tied together very well. I thoroughly enjoyed this read!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too slow and plodding for me July 19, 2012
By Dog Mom
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I couldn't even read to the half-way point of this novel. It started out very interesting but...soon deteriorated into a plodding procedural and not a very good one at that. The writing was okay - the story just never went anywhere. Chapters were written from the POV of new characters, pulling me out of the story. The cops wandered from place to place investigating....not much. The body finally turned up but unfortunately the action didn't increase. I almost gave up with the the main cop started to go to bed at ....nine o'clock in the evening!!!!! What bugged me the most was....we never did find out who was hiding the night of the Halloween party! Too many good books, too little time.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIDE AND SEEK "THRILLER" March 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the 3rd book I have read from this author and they are only get better. Hide and Seek is the 2nd book in the Mac Jackson murder mystery series. This is a great read with many twist and turns that every time I though I had it figured out I was wrong. It is not like the normal "who done it" and you figure it out right away. It is a must read you wont be dissapointed.

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.
