Guest Author Karen E. Olson. Award winning author Karen E. Olson will discuss and read from her new book, Hidden. The first in a trilogy, Hidden is a tense and twisting novel of identity and suspense. Nicole Jones, a computer hacker, has been hiding in plain sight on Block Island off the coast of Rhode Island. Nicole doesn’t use a computer, not because she’s afraid of it, but because she’s afraid of what she – a badass hacker in her past life – would do with it. When the last person Nicole wants to see suddenly reappears, Nicole realizes she must re-hone her long-suppressed computer skills in order to escape from an island that is no longer a haven, but suddenly a prison. Ms. Olson is the author of the Annie Seymour and Tattoo Shop mystery series and Hidden. Her first book, Sacred Cows, won the Sara Ann Freed Award for best first mystery and her fourth book, Shot Girl, was shortlisted for a Shamus Award.
