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.

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.

I was so fortunate to notice under the Goodreads ebooks giveaway, the new novel, "Hide & Seek" by Jenny Hilborne.I quickly downloaded it.

Jenny Hilborne is an amazing author! She is one of my favourite authors.I enjoy reading mystery suspense thrillers.I have read all of her books, such as Murder & Madness, The Alibi, False Pretense and now Hide & Seek.I couldn't put this book down.I was glued from page one.

Homicide Inspector, Mac Jackson and partner,Red Dennis had been called to Hallam House to investigate the missing person report due to a large amount of blood found on the grounds.A missing shoe belonging to Abby indicated foul play...a pond...but no body. Her purse containing her car keys and phone was found by Ellis on the couch.

The story takes place on Halloween. A group of 31 friends gather at a mansion and decide to play a game. Two days later, the body is discovered. As Jackson questions the guests, he uncovers old hostilities, threat notes,secret pasts, and the victim's ties to another unusual death. At the center of it all is the lingerie bar, where the victim once worked. Are the girls in some sort of danger? Who is the thug with the scar? Jackson must work fast, before it's too late.

This is a real "whodunit" stand alone novel. Jackson must determine who had "motive and opportunity".The reader follows each step of the investigation, trying to also solve the mystery...but so many people had motive.Threat letters signed "H" found in Abby's apartment with the pool table and chess set,her job at the lingerie club, casual relationships and affairs.Abby played hard to get. She liked to play games, and so did her killer.

If you enjoy reading mystery suspense thrillers, don't miss out on this one! You won't be disappointed.This is an amazing novel by an amazing author.Thank you so much Jenny, and keep on writing.

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.

I believe that most mystery fans are also into solving puzzles. Be it crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, Sudoku, etc. it's all about building on bits of information until the big picture becomes clear. If you're the type of person who skips the easy puzzles in the front of the book (or 100 piece jigsaw puzzles) in favor of the more challenging ones, you'll love Hide and Seek by Jenny Hilborne.

We learn in the opening that a murder is committed by more than one person and at least one of them is female. The challenge is that all of the suspects are scared, and not interacting with one another. We also learn that more than one crime was committed, and their interrelationship makes life very difficult for San Francisco Police Inspector Mac Jackson.

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.

The puzzle solver in me is very glad there is a Mac Jackson series. It won't be long before I return for another challenge.

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.
