Synopsis

In Sparta, a city that masks age-old secrets and private enmities, a close-knit group are excavating. They are a potent and seductive mix: Natsuko, beautiful and mysterious; Jason, restless and menacing; Eberhard, commanding, aloof and fiercely intelligent. When Ben, lost and aimless, comes to Greece to escape private failures, he is inevitably drawn to them, thrilled by the idea of acceptance and excited by the dangerous games they play. But there is more to the group than Ben understands and he finds out too late that some things should remain hidden. He must decide where his loyalties lie before the decision is taken for him. Powerful and gripping, The Hidden is a novel of the secrets we keep, the ties that bind us and the true cost of following our desires.
