BOOK REVIEW | The Hidden


By Fiona Snyckers

A vicious attack. Hidden perpetrators. An ordinary family.

The Hidden is brilliant, highly imaginative and compelling. The twists and turns will keep you hooked to the last page. Fiona Snyckers is a master of the craft!

– Angela Makholwa


In the aftermath of the worst terrorist attack on US soil since 9/11, FBI Special Agent in Charge Aalia Knox and her team come under intense pressure to locate and arrest the ringleaders. But their targets are survivalists, skilled at melting into the forests of the Pacific Northwest, where they recognise no outside authority, state or federal.


Becca Abrahamson is a woman with a secret. She might look like just another suburban Monterey mother, but her ties to the survivalist community run deep. The FBI will go to any lengths to incriminate her in the terrorist attack, while she will stop at nothing to protect her family.

As the country shudders in the wake of the brutal attack on a business park, long-buried secrets emerge as the FBI seeks justice for the lives lost.
