Editorial Reviews Review

An Amazon Best Book of May 2022: Rekulak runs his fingers down your spine with a pulse-pounding thriller, steeped in the supernatural and fueled by alarming twists. In Hidden Pictures, Mallory Quinn is an ex-drug addict with a chance at redemption working as a nanny for the Maxwell’s, a seemingly perfect family living in an idyllic neighborhood. But when her sweet five-year-old charge begins drawing dark, disturbing pictures well beyond his age, Mallory starts looking for answers in a decades-old story of a local artist’s murder. Is Mallory’s past coming back to haunt her or is there something malignant at play? This horror-tinged tale of suspense will keep you up at night racing to the final shocking outcome. —Seira Wilson, Amazon Editor --This text refers to the hardcover edition.


"It's almost enough to make a person believe in ghosts..." Kirkus Reviews

"The explosive third act gives this story a nail-biting ending sure to thrill.
Paranormal perfection." Booklist

“Beautiful, terrifying, and surprisingly kind.”

"I read
Hidden Pictures and loved it. The language is straightforward, the surprises really surprise, and it has that hard-to-achieve propulsiveness that won't let you put it down. And the pictures are terrific!" Stephen King

“Whip-smart, creepy as hell, and masterfully plotted,
Hidden Pictures is the best new thriller novel I’ve read in years. Destined to be a classic of the genre.” ―Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

“Hidden Pictures is one of those rare gems that’s aware of the rules of the genre even as it breaks them and invents new ones. It’s a gas to read, full of wonderful new ideas, both literary and visual. This is one of those books you leave out long after finishing, just so your friends might see it and give you the chance to share it! Jason Rekulak is going to be telling us all stories for a good long while.”
―Scott Frank, Academy Award-nominated screenwriter and Emmy-winning director of The Queen’s Gambit

"For a few days, my life was completely hijacked by Jason Rekulak's
Hidden Pictures, one of the best and most inventive ghost stories I've read in years. The damaged but still fighting Mallory Quinn stole my heart and her plunge into supernatural wonder gripped my imagination. It's a beautiful dark rush of a novel. I'm already excited to read it again." ―Joe Hill

Hidden Pictures isn’t a ghost story, it’s a scalpel that slices into our smug sense of self-satisfaction so deeply it hits bone. A perfect summer thriller complete with vengeful spirits, class warfare, and it even has pictures. What more could you want?” ―Grady Hendrix, bestselling author of The Final Girl Support Group

Reviewed in the United States on June 12, 2022
Wow. Mind blown. I am overwhelmed with the amazing story I have just read! I have never read anything like it and it will forever be hard to replace in my top books of all time! This compelling story of suspense, mystery and the ability to overcome obstacles of massive proportions! Seriously one of the best ghost stories I have ever read. The twists and turns were astounding as well as the art within the story. Consider me a fan for life! If I could give this book 10 stars, I would. Do yourself a solid and just devour it as I did. You can thank me later.
