There are certain criminal cases that are talked about generations after the investigation is closed.
They are biopsied, broken down, with every move by the detective analyzed. These cases can make legends or goats out of the investigators.
In Hide and Seek, such a case lands in Detective Jake Skinner and his partner, Detective Dan Rico’s, laps. Having just transferred from South Bureau Homicide, Jake thought taking down an armed bank robber on his first day was as wild as the RHD ride got. He was wrong.
The kidnapping of the wife of the mayor of Los Angeles, who also happens to be a federal prosecutor threatens the core of one of the world’s most famous cities. An internal power struggle, false leads, meddling media, the victim’s own family, and Jake’s personal struggles all threaten to derail the investigation, an investigation that leads to pure evil.
Detective Jake Skinner, a 15-year LAPD veteran, is a driven justice seeker. He will use every means to achieve a desirable end. On vacation seeking solace from relentless casework, Jake’s career takes new direction as he crosses paths with a terrorist. With a renewed sense of focus, Jake and FBI Special Agent Monica De La Cova set out to stop a rising tide of extremist violence.
As the carnage spreads like a cancer, the national debate on how to deal with extremism is personified in a senate race. Meanwhile, Jake and Monica’s divergent investigations intersect, uncovering a plot so sinister, the symphony of violence so great, that the nation will be brought to its knees.
