Review:

"THE HIDDEN is above all is a superb portrait of modern Greece.Hill's brilliance lies in capturing the contradictions of a country he knows well." -- The Independent

"[An] elegant, sinister novel.Grippingly good." -- Marie Claire (UK)

"Apart from everything else that this novel is a beautifully paced thriller, a meditation on loss, guilt, obsession...it is also one of the finest novels written so far about this, our age of terror."--The Observer

"[A] high-stakes, propulsive narrative. . . . The novel's ideas are explored with stylish rigor and a rare boldness made all the more powerful by its surprising lyricism.--New York Times Book Review

"[T]his is a wonderful novel: elegant yet savage, restrained yet full-throttled, illuminated by the sort of brilliance that leaves you short of breath."--Daily Telegraph (London)

"Hill keeps the tension building to a climax which features the most unpleasant final image I've come across in a long time. Quite brilliant."--The Independent on Sunday

"The ingenious plot twists of THE HIDDEN are satisfying to follow, and the book's constant sifting of the present through the past is done with admirable intelligence. But what lingers more than anything are these quick, sure, playfully notational passages. You don't often see writing as lively as this."--The Guardian
