Brook Cottage Books is thrilled to be part of the blog tour for THE HIDING PLACE by John Burley. Read on to find out a little about the book and read an extract. This book sounds thrilling! 

A chilling and twisted tale of cat and mouse – perfect for fans of Linwood Barclay and Harlan Coben.
She can’t reach him … but he can get to her …

Dr Lise Shields works alongside some of the most dangerous criminals in America. As a psychiatrist she goes further than many, trying to work out what motivates these depraved and deadly individuals. When she gets close to one patient, Jason, she realises that his story isn’t black and white, and perhaps they’ve got the wrong man. But in letting Jason in, and believing his story, Lise soon realises she has put herself in terrible danger as she uncovers secrets, lies and unanswered questions. Is Lise living on borrowed time? And when she reaches the point of no return – where will she hide?


“Okay, Jason.” I folded my hands across my lap. “Do you know why you’re here?”
He nodded. “I’m here to see you.”
“Well . . . me and the rest of your treatment team, yes. But can you tell me a little bit about the events that brought you here?”
His face fell a little at this, as if it were either too taxing or too painful to recount. “I was hoping you’d already know.”
“Your records haven’t arrived yet,” I explained. “But we’ll have time to talk about all this later. For right now, I just wanted to introduce myself. Once again, my name is Dr. Shields and I’ll be your treating psychiatrist. We’ll meet once a day for a session, except on weekends. I’ll review your chart and medication list once they arrive. Paul will show you around the unit and will take you to your room. Meanwhile, if there’s anything you need or if you have any other questions, you can ask Paul or one of the other orderlies. Or let one of the nurses know. They can all get in touch with me if necessary.”
 I stood up, but hesitated a moment before leaving. He watched me with an expectant gaze, and despite my better professional judgment, I leaned forward and placed a hand on his shoulder. “It’s going to be okay,” I told him. “You’re in a safe place now.”
 He seemed to take my words at face value, trusting without question, and in the weeks and months to come I would often look back upon that statement with deep regret, realizing that nothing could have been further from the truth.
