His daughter's dead, his wife's gone missing and there's a serial killer on the run. Daniel Kendrick must face the truth – and there's no place to hide...

Struggling to come to terms with his daughter’s murder and on the verge of losing both his career and his marriage, surgeon Daniel Kendrick faces further personal turmoil when his wife, a forensic psychiatrist, goes missing following death threats and blood spatters at her clinic.

When he is wrongly suspected of her disappearance, and with a serial killer on the run near their hometown, he is forced to begin his own investigation and is drawn into the world of her patients – criminals, murderers and psychopaths.

But when he discovers a dark secret, he is forced to confront his inner demons and finds himself in a desperate race against time to find his wife before a dangerous killer closes in on her.

An intense, emotional glimpse into the dark side of the mind…

Ruth Searle had a long career in nursing before following her dream to become a marine biologist. She has a PhD for her humpback whale research and spent many happy hours swimming with whales and diving with sharks. Now she’s finally settled down to be what she’s always wanted to be – a thriller writer! She lives in the Monmouthshire countryside with her husband, cats, rescued hens and turkeys.

I am so obsessed with this book! I read it as fast as I could. This had everything I want in a thriller. So much suspense and good twists. One thing that was a little difficult was keeping track of all the POVs. But I still loved it!

Librarian 974794 (Guest Review) - 25 Jun, 2023

The premise of this book is fantastic and right up my alley. It grabs your attention for the very beginning and doesn't let up. There is A LOT going on and it's not always plausible, but it was very entertaining as long as you're willing to suspend realistic expectations a little bit. I hope Ruth Searle continues to write thrillers because this one had a lot of promise and mostly delivered. I think her writing will only get better and I can't wait to see where Daniel goes from here.

A really good read. It was slow to start with but then I couldn't put it down. Twisty and gripping. 4*.

Searle's latest book had me intrigued by the mystery and I quickly became invested in the main characters. Well done!

Megan R. (Guest Review) - 05 May, 2023

NO PLACE TO HIDE is a gripping thriller that follows a few different storylines and different perspectives which all connect to each other in some way. It wasn’t too hard to keep up with the different perspectives for me and I really enjoyed reading about all these characters and how all their dark secrets connected somehow. This was a really enjoyable thriller and I don’t want to give too much away but would definitely recommend this! I think this is also going to be a book series which is really exciting and I can’t wait to read the next book!

I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This thriller was pretty good! At first, it was a little confusing with all the characters and the timeline jumps, but once you get it figured out, the story line is great. It doesn't take long to find out how everyone is intertwined. I liked that there really weren't any slow spots in the book because it made it hard to put down. I also enjoyed that there were several plot lines running on top of each other but that all came together in the end. All in all, a great thriller.

No Place to Hide - Ruth Searle
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the eARC of this uniquely captivating thriller.
Before their child was murdered, Daniel and his wife led a relatively pleasant, if not charmed, life.
However, after the loss of their child, Daniel quickly discovers was only the first (albeit the most brutal) cruel card that he would be dealt by fate.
Daniel watches the successes he has worked so hard for flow out if his hands like water, before he has an opportunity to rally and regain them.
First, after the murder that began this downward spiral, Daniel loses his marriage almost immediately as it could not survive the death of their only child. Next, Daniel's life's work an identity as a surgeon falters...

Intrigued? Wait until you read what happens next!

Until next time...

Kaylee W (Guest Review) - 18 May, 2023

It was a fairly nice thriller!
With so many characters and time hops at first, it was a little confused, but after you figure it out, the plot is fantastic.
I couldn't put it down once I started into it.

Claire C. Guest reviewer (Guest Review) - 13 Jun, 2023

A very good serial killer book. It had lots of twists theatre kept me engaged and I was quite invested in the story.

His daughter's dead, his wife's gone missing and there's a serial killer on the run. Daniel Kendrick must face the truth – and there's no place to hide...

For a debut novel this is definitely one that grabbed my attention from the very beginning. If you like your books about serial killers this is one that I can highly recommend. I must say my initial thought was oh no, not another serial killer book but I took a chance on this one and was very glad I did

I found the book a little slow to begin with and there were a couple of places where my attention may have lagged but all the parts in between more than make up for it. There are a lot of characters and in the beginning I was trying to understand how all of them could influence the story but they all play their part and it works very well. The main story once it gets going moves really quickly and I was then totally invested in the story. Lots of twists that keep you engaged and just the right amount of tension lurking in the background at all times.

This is a fabulous book and one I would recommend to other thriller readers. After reading this book I will be looking forward to other books of this genre by Ruth Searle. Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an advanced copy of the book, all opinions are my own.
