Publisher's Summary

"Authentic, disturbing and unbearably tense, Hideaway will leave you reeling." (Shari Lapena, number-one internationally best-selling author of The Couple Next Door

Gloria Janes appears to be a doting suburban mother and loving wife. But beyond her canary-yellow door, Gloria controls her husband, Telly, as well as seven-year-old Maisy and her older brother Rowan, through a disorienting cycle of adoration and banishment. 

When Telly leaves, Gloria turns on Rowan. He runs away, finding unlikely refuge with a homeless man named Carl, with whom he forms the kind of bond he has never found with his parents. After they are menaced by strangers, Rowan follows Carl to an isolated cottage, where he accidentally sets off a burst of heightened paranoia in Carl, and their adventure takes a dark turn. 

Gloria is publicly desperate for the safe return of her son while privately plotting ever wilder ways to lure Telly home for good. Her behaviour grows more erratic and her manipulation of Maisy begins to seem dedicated toward an outcome that only she can see. The two storylines drive relentlessly toward a climax that is both shocking and emotionally riveting.

Suspenseful, unsettling, and masterful, Hideaway explores the secrets of a troubled family and illuminates an unlikely hero and a source of unexpected strength.

Critic Reviews

“Authentic, disturbing and unbearably tense, Hideaway will leave you reeling.” (Shari Lapena, number on internationally best-selling author of The Couple Next Door)

"In elegant, stylish prose, Lundrigan captures the bewilderment of childhood when it’s set against the backdrop of how awful adults can be. If ever there was a book that will hook you with hatred and love, Hideaway is it. With a great, tense finish, you’ll be desperate for the right characters to win. I loved Maisy as much as I do Scout Finch, and that’s saying something." (Roz Nay, internationally best-selling author of Our Little Secret)

"Lundrigan is a fearless writer, and has created an unforgettable, psychologically complex, smart, dark story in Hideaway. Questioning ideas of safety, truth, and responsibility, it's a bone-chilling tale that goes places you'll never expect - your heart will be racing by the final, shocking climax and you'll never stop cheering for the irresistible child heroes Rowan and Maisy, even in the darkest moments." (Grace O’Connell, author of Be Ready for the Lightning and Magnified World)
