Can't Hide What's Inside


Loved it! 😍

It's a deep psychological dive into crime, lies, and the thirst for revenge.

So, it begins a new future for Madison Sanders. She is the single mother to Elijah. Madison has escaped her controlling and abusive mom. When she starts a new job, she is faced with more abuse. The group of four is called the Wolfpack. Its leader is Ron Tatum. He considers himself a ladies' man. In his mind, he feels slighted and can't let it go. Maddy's subtle rejection fuels his insecurities. Forced to stop the harassment she reports it to the Human Resource Manager. They receive a reprimand.

It is the end of a toxic work environment but not the hard times. Her son Elijah is accidentally killed. The light of her life is gone. And so is her hope. Then she discovers it was not an accident. This is when the story elevates. You are introduced to this Don Carson character. He will play a part in the story. The former cop is now the private investigator helping Madison piece together what really happened to her son.

In You Can't Hide What's Inside I found myself transported. I was deeply invested in the story. Once I started the chapter on the Wolfpack, I was hooked. You can see how Ron's behavior formed. Now I understand, but I don't condone it. The author shone a light on sexual harassment. To me, the writing about it felt real. This was an untapped subject that he handled with mastery.

It mattered to me how Ron got a wife. Or how did Conor manage to capture her interest as part of the Wolfpack? At her most vulnerable he showed understanding and tenderness. And I did approve of the relationship. Heiglemann did a good job of having their connection make sense. The book is compelling, pairing a character-driven tale with crimes. Fans of psychological thrillers would enjoy this one.

I am a reader of a few genres but I have a particular fondness for the psychological thriller. I am comfortable reading about dark topics. I usually find my next read from random online discoveries. I usually rotate between reading a few books.
