Hidden: A Mitchum Story

with James O. Born. (Bookshots, Bk. 1). 3 CDs. 2 hrs. Hachette Audio. Jan. 2017. ISBN 9781478968054. $10. MYS
Robert Mitchum is a U.S. Navy SEAL dropout (he failed the swimming test); lives in Marlborough, NY, with his dog Bart Simpson;, delivers newspapers in his rickety station wagon; and serves as the town's unofficial private eye. When his 14-year-old cousin Bailey Mae goes missing, he employs his SEAL training to search for her. En route, listeners encounter many Mitchum relatives, including his feisty mother and drug dealer brother Natty. Soon Mitchum and Natty learn they're confronting some government "officials" who are keeping the country safe. After several melodramatic and violent face-offs, the Mitchums prevail. Narrator Wayne Pyle deftly presents kind, thoughtful, but tough Mitchum; his forceful, long-suffering mother; and less pleasant brother who's proud of his illegal career.
VERDICT Most enjoyable; Patterson readers will love this.
