Summary
Kathleen George returns with the sequel to The Odds , the Edgar®- nominee for Best Novel The new book in Kathleen George's stunning Pittsburgh-set police procedural series begins when a young mother dies in a hit-and-run accident caused by two young brothers. Desperate and afraid, Jack and Ryan Rutter flee to Sugar Lake, the summer community where they vacationed as children. As Detectives Colleen Greer and Richard Christie search for the brothers, Jack and Ryan create a terrifying hostage situation. As fast-paced and brilliantly plotted as the book that earned her an Edgar® nomination, Hideout is a riveting police procedural like no other.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "High on crack, 20-year-old Ryan Rutter ignores the warnings of his younger brother, Jack, and drives recklessly, running a red light on a Pittsburgh street and hitting and killing a female pedestrian. It gets worse. The brothers leave the scene of the crime, hiding out in a vacant summer home at a nearby lake, where they encounter energetic and inquisitive 83-year-old Addie Ward. While Jack scrounges for work, Ryan's behavior becomes increasingly erratic and violent. Meanwhile, Detective Colleen Greer of the Pittsburgh PD and her team are assigned to investigate the incident. In the fifth entry in this series (after The Odds, 2009), George builds suspense in the cat-and-mouse chase for the Rutters as she examines the detectives and the interplay between them, especially Greer, who has a crush on her married boss and a renewed relationship with her former partner. A winning combination of nuanced character study and expertly plotted, nitty-gritty police procedural.--Leber, Michel. Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Edgar-finalist George's stellar sequel to The Odds (2009), Cmdr. Richard Christie and Det. Colleen Greer of Pittsburgh Homicide look into a late-night hit-and-run, in which a young woman died. Meanwhile, brothers Jack and Ryan Rutter, the two young men in the truck that fatally struck the woman, skip town and break into an unoccupied house in Perrysville, a nearby summer community. Jack is a hapless, sweet-natured kid, but Ryan is an angry, drug-addled coward who's looking for an excuse to hurt someone. The suspense grows as the innocent people of Perrysville go about their business-and the owner of the brothers' hideout heads home for the season. An expert at handling investigative details and pacing, George makes readers care about the people who are about to confront each other. The inevitable violence hurts because it matters. Told in lean, efficient prose, this is a top-notch, emotionally satisfying police procedural. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
