Hidden Secrets

   (8 reviews)
Genres: Romance, Paranormal

Terry Young has just been appointed as chief projectionist in a run-down old cinema. But from day one he has problems. Resentment from the man who thinks he should have got the job. An undeniable attraction toward his general manager, Dan. And the re-awakening of psychic abilities indicating something is hidden under the building.

This story is set in 2005, modern enough for there to be mobile phones and Internet access, but still within the timeframe when cinemas like the Regal, with a crew of projectionists running film still existed.

This is such a well-crafted story of intrigue, murder, mystery, love and spiritualism.  Having waited until it was completed so I could read the whole thing at my own pace, I must say I found it difficult to put down even when my eyes said "time" for the day!  The descriptions are such that one feels as though they are present and watching the action without being seen themselves.

A truly well crafted murder mystery that will keep you guessing right up to the end as to the motives and means.

If you have ever walked into a room or place, and felt the odd sensations causing the hairs on the back of your neck to stand up, felt a cold spot, where it shouldn't be...than this richly, well crafted tale is for you!!!

Put on your Sherlock Holmes hat and start reading, you won't be disappointed!

Response from the author:

Thank you. I tried to put in enough twists, turns and red herrings to keep readers guessing and it looks as if I succeeded.

A wonderfully written and developed story full of chills, twist and turns, and some true romance.  Characters, even the secondary ones, are wonderfully and fully developed.  The touch of the supernatural gave the story a feeling of tension that added the perfect edge to it.  The twist and turns keep you guessing right through to the end; and they are all so plausible and unlike so many actually make sense.  The romance rings true and blossoms beautifully.

A wonderful story to read on a rainy day looking out the window, being glad to be inside.  

Response from the author:

I feel truly honoured @centexhairysub that you gave me a five star review for this story. I was proud of it anyway, but that's the icing on the cake!

I haven't read in a long time a story placed so unequally and with such interesting characters.

Oh, and the mystery... 😉

This was a really great story! It has everything you want in a thriller. Nothing is given away too easily, it's well paced, lots of twists, with a perfectly satisfying end. A definite read. 

Response from the author:

Thank you. Plotting this story's twists and turns wasn't always easy, but it's good to see that readers enjoyed it and it kept them guessing.

A well written crime thriller/whodunit with more than a hint of the supernatural thrown. There are enough twists in the plot to keep you guessing, this makes it appealing and a pleasant read. Definitely one to come back to.

Response from the author:

Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it.

I enjoyed this story 🙂

Mystery and intrigue in a nostalgic setting of cinema when it was still film projection.

The plot builds over several chapters and kept me wondering what was going to happen next.
