Hide and Seek

Hide and Seek

They were young. They were looking for kicks. They decided to play an innocent game in a strange old house. Hide and Seek. First it turned ugly. Then it turned brutal. Finally, it became a nightmare of horror and violence. None of them was ever the same again…

Hide and Seek is now available from Cemetery Dance Publications as a limited edition hardcover, and as a trade paperback from Gauntlet Press.

The Gauntlet edition features a new afterword from Jack titled Risky Living: A Memoir, in which Jack discusses some of the events in his life that led to the writing of Hide and Seek. This memoir is also available in Book of Souls.

An audio version is also available from Dark Realms Audio.
