In Everywhere To Hide, author Siri Mitchell transports the reader to Alexandria, Virginia, for an intriguing suspense thriller that will keep the reader guessing and turning the pages.

Whitney Garrison is a recent law school graduate, who is holding down two jobs as a barista and a college-test prep coach, while studing for the bar exam. After her shift is complete at the Blue Dog / RINO coffee shop, Whitney leaves by the back door and finds a man lying on the ground with blood around his head in the alley. She hears a sound and looks up to see a man with a gun on the roof. Whitney has just witnessed a murder, but there is a major problem, she has prosopagnosia (face blindness), a neurological condition where she has the inability to recognize faces. With a killer on the loose who saw Whitney, what can she do to protect herself from becoming the next victim?

Leo Baroni is a detective with the Alexandria Police Department, who has been assigned to the murder case that Whitney witnessed. After Whitney explains her condition, Leo is determined to keep her safe while searching for the killer. But when the victim is identified and had close ties to Whitney, the FBI takes the lead in the investigation with an international focus that includes politics, corruption, espionage, and hacking. Whitney and Leo team up to figure out why the killer has targeted her, and what important information does she have that the killer is determined to get at all costs.

Author Siri Mitchell weaves a suspenseful tale written in the first person narrative that follows Whitney and Leo as they work around her neurological condition, and try to figure out what important information that she has that the killer desperately wants.

I enjoyed reading this slow-building, intriguing, and suspenseful story. The reader will be easily drawn into this well written story with its richly descriptive plot that revolves around cryptocurrency and international political / governmental hacking that will keep them guessing as secrets, possible motives, and clues are uncovered, while unexpected twists and turns, and a surprising conclusion will leave the reader simply stunned. The author provides the reader with a lot of fascinating information into what cryptocurrency is, how it relates to the international world, and the intrigue of international political espionage and hacking attempts. I would be remiss if I didn't mention how much I enjoyed the unexpected connection between Whitney and Leo, they made a great team when Whitney learned to trust Leo, especially after the trauma she endured in a past abusive relationship.

Everywhere To Hide has enough drama, tension, action, dark secrets, a touch of romance, and unexpected twists and turns that will take the reader on one heck of a thrilling roller coaster ride.

This is a hard review to write because I feel very torn about this book. On one hand, I was really intrigued by the main character having face blindness. This was definitely a unique characteristic and added to the suspense of the story. Due to Whitney's inability to recognize faces, she never knew if she was in the same room as the killer or not. On the other hand, I never really connected with Whitney, the main character. I do not usually have a problem with books written in the first person. However, reading a book written in the first person with a main character you do not really care for definitely had its challenges.

I was given an ebook copy by the publisher through Netgalley. All opinions expressed are entirely my own. ( )

In Everywhere to Hide Siri Mitchell gives readers a thriller packed with originality. From Whitney’s face blindness to the government agency involved, this book is engaging and a page turner.

The first-person point of view through Whitney’s eyes made her challenges as frustrating to this reader as it did her and the police investigating the murder. It worked extremely well in this book.

As the web of intrigue weaves more intricately, Whitney’s personal life derails too. But the kind and understanding detective is there for her.

There is a subtle romance in this, which doesn’t develop until the last quarter of the book (and which my romance-loving heart enjoyed), but it is a small thread to this story.

If you’re looking for an intense political thriller with plenty of suspense and a hook that doesn’t lose its draw, Everywhere to Hide is a must-read.

Everywhere to Hide has an intricate plot involving politics, espionage, cryptocurrency, and murder. Mitchell gives the story an interesting twist by including a key witness who has face blindness, something that impacts about 2.5% of the population to varying degrees. For this witness it means that the killer knows she saw him, but doesn't know that she cannot identify him. It also means that any man passing her on the sidewalk could be the killer set on insuring that she could not lead the authorities to him or testify against him.

I typically review Christian fiction, and this book isn't that, but it is a good, clean read, one that I would recommend. I have given it five stars because of the intricacy of the plot, the pacing of the story, and the author's ability to bring forth great empathy for the protagonist. I am grateful to have received a complimentary copy of Everywhere to Hide from Thomas Nelson via NetGalley without obligation. All opinions expressed here are my own. ( )

I was quickly drawn in by the way this author wrote from a first-person point-of-view of a women who has face blindness - the official name, prosopagnosia. The condition is real and affects about 2.5% of our population. A person can have a head injury or be born with it like in the main character Whitney’s case. I am blown away and could not pull myself from this author’s new suspense thriller.

I was fascinated by Whitney and how she navigated the world with prosopagnosia. I liked Detective Leo and how he encouraged Whitney, to focus on things she could do, “not the things I couldn’t.” Leo helped Whitney see that despite the faces she could not recognize, she could recognize most people’s souls.

Whitney starts to think, “I should have been looking for a pattern. I was excellent at putting together an argument, at discerning patterns. I lived my life by patterns...The way people walked, talked and wore their hair…”It was the details that counted. Details created patterns.”

The author says this book about did her in as she tried to describe things Whitney could see. She says,”…My normal method of describing character interactions relies to an extraordinary extent on eye contact and facial expressions….It was challenging to depict characters’ relationships and emotions with no reference to facial features. More challenging still was the rather late realization that I had two villains instead of just one. Surprise!”

This is one while ride you won’t want to miss. This book would be wonderful for your next book club pick. You will naturally have a lively discussion with this story.
