Hidden By Lisa Sell – Book Review



Jen Taylor has a secret.

In 1987 the body of fourteen-year-old Kelly was found on a railway track and Jen believes she was responsible for her death.

Now an adult, Jen is approached by Kelly’s mother, who asks her to help investigate her daughter’s murder.

But Jen is hiding more than anyone knows.

As the investigation is reopened by Jen, along with her former friend Claire, secrets from the past come to light and when another murder takes place, the case takes a sinister turn.

Did Jen really kill Kelly and can she ever right the wrongs of the past?



Jen is training to be a counsellor, but she has now own problems..all stemming from her childhood on the Rembrandt estate.

A young girl, Kelly, had died on the railway track…Jen believes it was her fault and the guilt has troubled her ever since.

Kelly’s mum, Doreen, now ill, is trying to find out the truth….how did Kelly die?

There’s Jen, made to befriend Kelly by her domineering mum. Claire, her friend who wants to be a reporter……Johnny, who she has a secret crush on and her brother, Liam, the golden boy…

Just who would want to hurt Kelly ? Who knows the truth and why would they keep it to themselves?

This is a disturbing read, from the treatment of children by their parents and guardians to the bullying by siblings and peers and it is heartbreaking at times. It has such a believability and a sense of reality, all due to the incredibly descriptive, emotion packed writing by Lisa Sell. I loved the 80’s references too….Twonk…I haven’t heard that in years…. Utterly compelling from start to finish.

Lisa Sell is a thriller, crime, and mystery writer who also scribbles short stories. Throughout her writing career she’s blogged about the twists and turns on her site:www.lisasell.co.uk   

To combat writer’s bum and keep mentally fit, Lisa is a runner. The consequence is that she’s now a running bore but is proud of her achievements.

When she’s reading, Lisa practically hoovers up books. The to-be-read pile has become a tower, threatening to topple on her when she’s sleeping. 

Music rocks Lisa’s world too, particularly a good eighties tune. If lost, you’ll find Lisa in a DeLorean, headed for her favourite decade.

Lisa’s cats, Feegle and Wullie, try to help her write but often fail. The furry pests demand attention and desk space. Lisa is currently applying for cat wrangling to be recognised as an Olympic sport. 

Lisa is a happy pup to be part of the Bloodhound Books team. Just don’t tell the cats.
