No Place To Hide
An irreversible pact. An impossible disappearing act.
The new J.S.Monroe thriller, No Place to Hide, will be published in the UK in February 2023.
A spellbinding tale of psychological suspense, weaving together the dark web, murder, and blackmail…
Adam appears to have everything: a happy marriage, two young children, and a flourishing career as a paediatrician. But Adam also has a secret: hospital CCTV, strangers’ mobile phones, city traffic cameras – he is convinced that they are all filming him because of something terrible that happened at a drunken party when he was a student.
Only one other person knew what occurred, a young filmmaker, Louis, who captured the very act on camera. With no other options at the time, Adam made a pact with Louis – inspired by Adam’s starring role in the play Dr Faustus – in order to cover up the crime and keep his dreams of becoming a doctor alive.
Now, convinced that Louis’ cameras are rolling again, Adam decides to dabble in the dark arts once more. In this digital world, where no act goes unnoticed, he will disappear. No suicide note, goodbye letter, or farewell video – the ultimate modern magic trick.
Can Adam perform his vanishing act and save his family and career? Or will Louis’ hell-bent determination to collect what’s his prove unstoppable.
