Description

**FROM AMAZON CHARTS BESTSELLING AUTHOR LYNDEE WALKER**

A series of brutal pig slaughters brings Faith McClellan to a small town where a ruthless serial killer prepares to butcher their first human victim…

"LynDee Walker is a modern voice in crime fiction with a southern belle’s charm...if you like Tami Hoag or Nora Roberts, you will love her work.” —S.A. Cosby, New York Times bestselling author of RAZORBLADE TEARS

When Texas Ranger Faith McClellan is called to investigate a series of gruesome small-town murders, she doesn’t expect to find a slaughtered pig—but she agrees to take the case, suspecting the latest murder was targeted at Kelsey Marie, the teenage handler of the victim.

Kelsey Marie is smart, pretty, and successful, supporting her family’s lavish lifestyle with her highly lucrative YouTube channel. She’s also the target of massive online hate, with dozens of threatening messages sent to her channel each day.

Although the clues point to an online stalker, Faith suspects a killer much closer to home, and the list of possibilities is endless: from jealous rivals at a local FFA chapter to Kelsey Marie’s suspiciously missing mom and half brother.

When the killer carves up their first human victim, Faith knows she’s running out of time—but with little evidence, too many suspects, and a serial killer who outsmarts her at every turn, the odds are stacked up against her.

And when the killer uploads the filmed murders to Kelsey Marie’s YouTube channel, Faith will risk everything to save the teenager’s reputation…and her life.

Ranger Faith McClellan is back with a case that starts out as a pig murder and develops into a potential serial killer. With their wedding not too far off, Faith and Graham are doing what they do best -- chasing and catching perps. Thanks to a call from one of her Granny's friends, Faith gets involved in a case of a murdered pig that happened to be a YouTube star, along with his owner (Kelsey Marie). While digging for clues behind this violent act, more deaths (human and animal) start piling up, and the case has more twists than a good roller coaster. Is Faith's angst about her wedding dulling her investigative skills? Could this be the one case she doesn't close? It's an interesting plot and keeps you guessing till the end. Can't wait to see what happens with Faith and Graham in the next book.

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review! Nowhere to Hide by LynDee Walker is one of the most original police procedurals I've read this year. The story revolves around a murdered pig. Samson the pig is internet-famous, which makes it all the more upsetting when he is murdered and then the murder video is streamed onto the Youtube channel that made him famous. Faith and her fiance Graham investigate by interviewing the owner of the pig and the manager of the Youtube channel, 17 year-old influencer, Kelsey Marie. Who could have murdered Samson? Was it someone trying to get to Kelsey Marie? And what will happen if the killer moves on to murdering people? Here is a chilling excerpt from Chapter 1: "Murder is easy. It's getting away with it that's the harder part. More on that later. Most people - probably nine out of ten - kill because they feel it's necessary. Self-defense, revenge, greed - they can all push an average person over the line. But in the aftermath, most people regret what they've done. The mark of a true predator is lack of remorse. Think of it this way: in the animal kingdom, survival of the fittest reigns supreme. Strength and cunning prevails, and life moves on." Overall, Nowhere to Hide is an unputdownable addition to the genre of serial killer thrillers. I had to keep reading this book to find out who the killer is, and I ended up finishing the book in a day. As mentioned before, one highlight of this book is the original premise. I know that serial killers often start with animals, but it was super interesting to read about how a police officer deals with the investigation of a murdered animal. Another highlight of this book is the main character. Faith is an extremely relatable protagonist. She's supposed to get married to her fiance Graham, who is also a police officer, soon, and it's great that we get to know about her personal life as well. If you're intrigued by the excerpt above, or if you're a fan of police procedurals, you won't regret checking out this book when it comes out in November!

Thank you Severn River Publishing and NetGalley for another one Walkers extraordinary novels! I fell in love with LynDee Walker when I discovered her her on my Kindle Unlimited and read Fear No Truth the Faith McClellan series. That novel blew me away and I've been a fan ever since! So when I seen the newest book to her series I had to jump on it! Again the Texas Ranger Faith is back with her badass self. The characters are interesting. And pull in you into their story like no other. I thought Nowhere to Hide was a fast-paced page turner filled with suspense and action from the first page to the last. I love how Walker can grab you from the very page and send down this spiral hill full of twist and turns you never see coming! If you love suspenseful mysteries, with great plots and characters, check out this series!

Thrillers are not my usual reading choice but there some authors, I just can't resist and LynDee Walker is one of them. The tension ramps up slowly at first but long before I finished reading it, I had to put the book down every few chapters just to breathe. Ms. Walker is kind enough to balance the worst of the intensity with alternate action and such interesting characters that I can't keep from jumping right backing into the amazing world that she creates. Twists and turns pile up as the murder seems to get closer and every track that Faith follows dead ends. If you have read the description of the book, you know that the suspicious deaths that she is called on to investigate are in fact pet pigs but like all lawmen, Faith immediately reflects on the fact that murderers, especially serial killers, usually start with animals. While she expects teasing about investigating the death of a pig on a pig farm, the ranger with a perfect record takes the situation seriously even before the first human body lands in her lap. The LEO with a perfect solve record is determine that the 4-H president, YouTube star will not be a victim any more than she already is. My thanks to NetGalley and Severn River Publishing for allowing me to read and share my enjoyment of the 4th outstanding book in Faith McClellan series, Nowhere to Hide. #NetGalley #SevernRiverPublishing #NowheretoHide #LynDeeWalker

LynDee Walker provided perfection in her latest Faith McClellan Novel. It was so unusually gripping from the very first page, with an underlying devotion to old friends and loved ones that is the mark of Faith's life as a Texas Ranger. Quirky quickly descends into truly horrifying as we are safely walked through terror by Faith, Graham and Archie. Walker's writing is so crisp and descriptive that the reader is completely along for the ride. I highly recommend 'Nowhere to Hide' and the entire series. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
