A gripping supernatural thriller.
A disturbing household secret has far-reaching consequences in this dark, unusual ghost story . . . Rekulak does a great job with character development: Mallory, who narrates in the first person, has an engaging voice; the Maxwells' slightly overbearing parenting style and passive-aggressive quips feel very familiar; and Teddy is so three-dimensional that he sometimes feels like a real child. It's almost enough to make a person believe in ghosts.
The explosive third act gives this story a nail-biting ending sure to thrill.
Whip-smart, creepy as hell, and masterfully plotted, Hidden Pictures is the best new thriller I've read in years. Destined to be a classic of the genre.
One of the best and most inventive ghost stories I've read in years. The damaged but still fighting Mallory Quinn stole my heart. It's a beautiful dark rush of a novel. I'm already excited to read it again.
Hidden Pictures isn't a ghost story, it's a scalpel that slices into our smug sense of self-satisfaction so deeply it hits bone. A perfect summer thriller complete with vengeful spirits, class warfare, and it even has pictures. What more could you want?
