Mallory is delighted to have a new job looking after gorgeous four-year-old, Teddy. She's been sober for a year and a half and she's sure her new nannying role in the affluent suburbs will help keep her on the straight and narrow.

That is until Teddy starts to draw disturbing pictures of his imaginary friend, Anya. It is quite clear to Mallory and to Teddy's parents, even in his crude childlike style, that the woman Teddy is drawing in his pictures is dead.

Teddy's crayons are confiscated, and his paper locked away. But the drawings somehow keep coming, telling a frightening story of a woman murdered... and they're getting more sophisticated. But if Teddy isn't drawing the pictures anymore, who is? And what are they trying to tell Mallory about her new home?

MEDIA REVIEWS

I loved it. The surprises really surprise and it has that hard-to-achieve propulsiveness that won't let you put it down. And the pictures are terrific! - STEPHEN KING

Must be the boldest double twist of the year. Truly fantastic - THE TIMES

Part ghost story, part social-inequality satire [with] genuine paper jump-scares - GUARDIAN

Tightly plotted and well written [...] A gripping page-turner with intriguing characters and genuinely creepy moments - DAILY MIRROR

Whip-smart, creepy as hell, and masterfully plotted, Hidden Pictures is the best new thriller I've read in years. Destined to be a classic of the genre - RANSOM RIGGS, AUTHOR OF MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN

A disturbing household secret has far-reaching consequences in this dark, unusual ghost story . . . Rekulak does a great job with character development: Mallory, who narrates in the first person, has an engaging voice; the Maxwells' slightly overbearing parenting style and passive-aggressive quips feel very familiar; and Teddy is so three-dimensional that he sometimes feels like a real child. It's almost enough to make a person believe in ghosts - KIRKUS REVIEWS

So spooky - BUZZFEED

Hidden Pictures isn't a ghost story, it's a scalpel that slices into our smug sense of self-satisfaction so deeply it hits bone. A perfect summer thriller complete with vengeful spirits, class warfare, and it even has pictures. What more could you want? - GRADY HENDRIX, NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR

One of the best and most inventive ghost stories I've read in years. The damaged but still fighting Mallory Quinn stole my heart. It's a beautiful dark rush of a novel. I'm already excited to read it again - JOE HILL, AUTHOR OF THE FIREMAN

A gripping supernatural thriller - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

The explosive third act gives this story a nail-biting ending sure to thrill - BOOKLIST

Memorable and twisty . . . Seems designed to be read at the side of the pool with a drink in your hand and a smile on your face - ESQUIRE
