HIDDEN SECRETS

Author(s): 
Tragedy strikes several times in the small Washington state town where ex-lovers Marlo Malone and Spence Gerhard live. No one knows who the murderer is, but Spence has a very personal reason for finding out: His nephew's body is still missing and he wants closure.

Marlo, who has an unwanted psychic gift, has more than mere intuition telling her the boy is still alive. She's been gathering clues herself and, when she and Spence reunite in their search for the killer, their lives—and hearts—are put in danger.

London's book has several interesting twists late in the story. But the narrative is full of distracting repetition, and it takes over half the novel before the plot begins to move. The protagonists are well-drawn, but their dialogue is frequently disjointed, making certain scenes a bit difficult to follow. (Jan., 384 pp., $5.99)
