Books// Hidden by Casey Hill

Another book by Casey Hill. I'm really enjoying this series and you can see my review on the first two (Taboo & Torn) in the series here.

"A Fallen Angel. A Devil on the Loose. When a young girl is discovered dead on an isolated Irish country road, it seems at first glance to be a simple hit and run. Then the cops see the tattoo on her back - a pair of beautifully wrought angel wings that lend the victim a sense of ethereal innocence. 

Forensic investigator Reilly Steel is soon on the scene and her highly tuned sixth sense tells her there is more to this case than a straightforward murder. But with almost zero evidence and no way to trace the girl's origin, Reilly and the police are at a loss. 

Then the angel tattoo is traced to other children - both dead and alive - who are similarly marked, and Reilly starts to suspect they have all been abducted by the same person. 

But why? And will Reilly get to the bottom of the mystery and uncover what links these children together before tragedy strikes again?"

I definitely preferred the first two books compared to this one. I think its because this one isn't as action filled. Don't get me wrong I still enjoyed it and seeing the relationship between the main characters grow and change.

The murder part of the story was not as intense as the previous books and it involved an old case and mysterious wing tattoos. There is also old Irish folklore mixed in to add to the mystery. The fabulous profiler is back and he is just as sassy as before and still clashes with Chris. There is also a hostage negotiator who I really like but also clashes with some characters. Gotta love a bit of tension.

There's quite a sad ending to the story and I'm not really sure how I feel about it. I mean there's two sides to every story and all that. But I did enjoy it and following the process of the investigation and fitting the puzzle pieces together was as exciting as the other books.

The last chapter was pretty dramatic but apparently (I haven't read it yet) the next book doesn't carry on where this one finishes which is a bit disappointing because I really want to know what happens. Buuut obviously I'm still going to buy the next book so I'll let you know how it is.

Have you read any Casey Hill Books?
