A timely and shocking thriller about a young woman who is the target of a social-media smear campaign. See the publisher's page
Candace Walker is thrilled when she lands a new job at a hip Manhattan tech company and gets a brand-new iPhone. She's more than ready to move on from creating clickbait ads for weight-loss pills and herbal erection boosters, and is determined to dazzle the startup team she joins.
A week later, though, everything is at risk: Candace is the target of a mysterious harasser and an online smear campaign. She tosses her new phone into the Hudson River, begins hiding out in her sister's storage locker in New Jersey, and can't think of a single person she can trust. But Candace hasn't come this far—and gone to such lengths—to submit to what is happening without a fight.
"Smart, sardonic, sexy, suspenseful—and scary, because it's probably true." —Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series
"The Hiden Things confirms Jamie Mason's prodigious and wholly original talent. In a world of copycat writers chasing trends, she does her own thing -- and it's magnificent." – Laura Lippman
