Nowhere to Hide is a fast paced and at times confusing tale about three teenaged boys who work for the CIA in a voluntary capacity (facts that were established in its predecessor, Dead Man's Switch). King, MJ and Blake are the three youths in question, and they are trying to find the daughter of a CIA operative, as she has been kidnapped. The story, told from King's point of view, covers tales of intrigue, lies and deception.The story has periods where it's difficult to follow but I found the r ...more

If you haven't read the first book, there might be a bit of catching up to do before you pick this one up, but it's not absolutely necessary. Less character development and heavier on action, Sigmund Brouwer once again explores future (and existing) tech and how it can be used for good and evil. A thrill-ride of a novel for reluctant readers.

Nowhere to Hide Review
In the book Sigmund Brouwer does a great job keeping all my attention in the book and wanting to read it all the way to the end. There always was another situation in which they had to fix and or get out of. In some places it was very interesting and action paced which is good for keeping the reader reading and wanting more.
The main theme was three teenagers that are Juniors in high school and have been asked to track down a father that isn’t making child su

King and his friends, Blake and MJ, find themselves swept into another adventure of espionage and conspiracy, working with the CIA against possible terrorists.

This is a fast paced, non-stop adventure that picks up right pretty quickly in the aftermath of the previous book. I was actually a bit confused because I had picked up this book thinking that it was a stand alone, and so in the first few chapters I knew that I was missing something. I would say that this book does a good job of catching

I bought a hard copy which meant I was gonna read it no matter what. I regret it.
Honestly, the only complaint I'm gonna give is thEFUKING APPLE FANBOYISM SERIOUSLY WHAT THE FUCK. Aside from that, I lied, through the whole book(s) the use of tech is just... off. Maybe less tech inclined people would like it better, but I hated this.

Don't fucking read this book

In starting this book, I didn’t realize it was actually the second book in a series, the first book being Dead Man’s Switch. Had I known that ahead of time and read the initial book first, it might have changed some of my thoughts on this book. It would have made some parts of the character interaction and the references make more sense. Although Nowhere to Hide is readable as a standalone (as I did), I don’t think I would recommend it that way.
Also, since my review copy was digital it had sever

This book is about three teens, William King, Blake Watt, and Michael Johnson. The nicknames they use in the book are King, Blake, and MJ. King lived on McNeil Island, which was an Island where United States kept some of its dangerous prisoners. In fact, the only other people who lived on the island, other that the prisoners, were the prison employees. McNeil Island was only mile or so from the shore Tacoma, Washington. The only way from or to the island was by charter or helicopter ride. One da ...more

I wish they'd had young adult fiction books like THIS when I was a teen! "Nowhere to Hide" is a fantastic follow-up to the first book starring teens King, MJ, and Blake, Dead Man's Switch, and has the same non-stop action as the first book. I was riveted to my seat as I was drawn back into their world and into the middle of a conspiracy where nothing is as it seems. The characters are expertly developed, and readers will find themselves cheering on the 3 teens as they race to discover exactly wh ...more

This is a fast-paced young adult book. I didn't realize it was the second in a series, but I assume reading the first book would clear up some of the confusion I had. This book centers around King. I really grew to like him and the other characters in the book and loved the pacing through the story.

These boys have been asked to work for the CIA doing cyber bounty hunting (I didn't even know that was a thing!). There are twists and turns and uncertainty about who to trust or even who is good and

I am fairly certain that this is the second book in a series although i cannot find any information about this anywhere, this annoys me as i feel i would never normally read a second book in a series without having read the previous book.

Most of the problems i had with this story would probably not have been issues i have read the previous book as the characters did not feel totally fleshed out and continual references were made to previous events that were not explained (presumably from an earl

A good paced tale of mystery, intrigue and characters with depth. Brouwer kept me engaged with relatable MJ, Blake and King who was experiencing panic attacks prior to being summoned by CIA Evans who is a good guy...or is he? Twists and turns and shades of brilliance in the the boys own quirky ways left me wanting to binge read. And I did. The ongoing thread of the morality of lying to authorities was woven throughout the story. There really was no definitive 'yes, in certain circumstances it's ...more

I received an ebook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I gave this book three stars. Not because it was a horrible book. It was just a little confusing at times. There's a book that Sigmund Brouwer wrote called Dead Man's Switch which has the same characters in it. Although I don't know for sure if Nowhere to Hide is the sequel to that book. In this book they do bring up the Dead Man's Switch a lot. I felt like I should have read that one first before Nowhere to Hide to get a bette

William Lyon MacKenzie King was betrayed by his Father. McNeil Island is far from the perfect sanctuary it houses a prison with the world’s most violent men.

King knows that the facilities of this prison are not completely secure.

This was the first book I have read from this author. I found the characters well-developed and the writing style was good. I did however find myself confused at times, and felt I missed something along the way. That being said it was well worth the read and I look forward to reading more from the author.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review via NETGALLEY.

The author has written a fast paced sequel to Dead Man's Switch. Despite this being a follow-up to the earlier story, I think this tale can stand alone.
A reader can easily get caught up in all the high adventure that is filled with mystery, and exciting twists and turns.

Nowhere to Hide is the first book I have read by Sigmund Brouwer and it definitely will not be the last. The book has a perfect mixture of action, mystery, and suspense, with a touch of humor. I thought the book was great!
5 stars.
