Some houses have their secrets. But so do some people . . .

When Marina moves into 24 Harrington Gardens, she has an ulterior motive.

Marina is adopted. She's always known this – but the circumstances of her birth remain a mystery. Baby Blue, the newspapers nicknamed her at the time, after she'd been found, wrapped in a blue shawl, in the hallway of a large shared house in London. Despite a nationwide appeal, no one came forward to claim her.

24 Harrington Gardens. That was the house. And it's still standing now Marina is an adult; still split into flats. And one of them is to let.

Of course, Marina knows that the chances of her uncovering the truth about her birth are remote – but she hopes the house might hold some clues.

What if it's not just the house, though? What if someone connected to it knows what really happened that day? Someone who doesn't want the truth to come to light?

A story about luck – or the lack of it – and long buried secrets and lies, The Hiding Place is the gripping and thought-provoking third novel from Jenny Quintana, author of The Missing Girl and Our Dark Secret.
