A thrilling sequel: "Nowhere to Hide" by Sigmund Brouwer

Nowhere to Hide


about the book....

William King and Blake Watt have just settled into their senior year of high school when they receive a call for help—the authorities need to use their computer skills to track down a father who has failed to make child-support payments. The invitation to become cyber bounty hunters is so tempting, they don’t stop to ask why they were chosen for this assignment. 

As they learn more about the man they are searching for, they discover the true nature of their mission—to help the founder of a Seattle-based software company prove that he is innocent of a much different charge. But the scariest things they learn are why they were chosen and why they were supposed to remain in the background. 


my review....


I wish they'd had young adult fiction books like THIS when I was a teen! "Nowhere to Hide" is a fantastic follow-up to the first book starring teens King, MJ, and Blake, Dead Man's Switch, and has the same non-stop action as the first book. I was riveted to my seat as I was drawn back into their world and into the middle of a conspiracy where nothing is as it seems. The characters are expertly developed, and readers will find themselves cheering on the 3 teens as they race to discover exactly what is going on. Something I really appreciated about this novel especially is that King has some serious challenges to overcome, and he shows that we don't have to pretend to be perfect (and in fact that doing so can actually only make things worse!) I also like the special bond King has with his parents, and think that if more parents had the openness King ends up having with his mom and dad that there would be a lot less problems in this world. I encourage parents to read this book along with their teenagers, because not only will they be completely entertained, but they will have the opportunity to talk about when it is okay to lie or not lie. The author even brings up some examples from the Bible that fit well into the story and can also lead to some further discussion.

Both teens and adults who love an action-packed plot with tons of twist and turns should plan on adding "Nowhere to Hide" to their collection. Not only will they find themselves immersed in a well-told story, but they will appreciate how this novel celebrates family, faith, and friendships.

"Nowhere to Hide" is young adult fiction at its best. 5 out of 5 stars.
