2013 Winner: Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award - Mystery & Thriller
A university professor is brutally murdered in Egypt’s Sinai desert in 1940, leaving behind his new bride, the beautiful young Aimee Ibrahim. As Aimee tries to unravel the web of lies and secrets surrounding her husband’s death, she unwittingly becomes a pawn in a revolutionary plot against Egypt’s king. As Aimee gets ever closer to the truth, she discovers startling parallels between her own life and that of the mother she never knew.
Unfolding in the city’s brothels, hashish cafes, and jasmine-scented colonial mansions, The Hidden is a gritty, sensual tale of revolution, betrayal, and the lengths we will go to for love - and truth.

Review says, "2013 Winner: Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award - Mystery & Thriller".
It was in no way a breakthrough winner in my book. It dragged on & on, till I was ready to quit half way through. It seemed much more suited for the romance or women's book category than Mystery/Thriller. I wasn't puzzled or thrilled. And, the whining, would it ever stop!
Don't waste your time or money.
