For most of the citizens of Hidden Refuge, it’s an ordinary Friday night in an ordinary American town. But when men claiming to be police officers show up at their doorsteps in the middle of the night, ordering them to evacuate for their own safety, it’s only the beginning of a long, dark night that will prove to be anything but ordinary. Because, unbeknownst to most of its residents, Hidden Refuge contains something that very dangerous men want very, very badly. And those men are more than willing to kill to get what they want. But Hidden Refuge contains another secret—Zack Chambers, a seemingly unassuming programmer and suburbanite family man who will do whatever it takes to protect himself and his neighbors. Before the night is over, the blood of the innocent and the guilty alike will be shed, old scores will be settled, and shocking twists will finally be revealed.

Overview

It’s not such a beautiful day in the neighborhood ...

From the critically acclaimed author of the Logan West thrillers comes a can’t-miss, brand-new novel that proves Matthew Betley is the modern master of the unputdownable page-turner.

For most of the citizens of Hidden Refuge, it’s an ordinary Friday night in an ordinary American town. But when men claiming to be police officers show up at their doorsteps in the middle of the night, ordering them to evacuate for their own safety, it’s only the beginning of a long, dark night that will prove to be anything but ordinary. Unbeknownst to most of its residents, Hidden Refuge contains something that very dangerous men desperately want, and they are more than willing to kill to get it.

But Hidden Refuge contains another secret—Zack Chambers, a seemingly unassuming programmer and suburbanite family man who is far more than meets the eye. And while Zack dearly hoped that he’d never again need to use the deadly skills he’d acquired in his former life, when push comes to shove, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect himself and his neighbors. Even if it means taking on a small army of trained killers with only his wits and a ragtag group of allies.

Before the night is over, the blood of the innocent and the guilty alike will be shed, old scores will be settled, and shocking twists will be revealed. Propulsive, brilliantly plotted, and packed with Matthew Betley’s trademark blend of gritty realism and edge-of-your-seat action, The Neighborhood is a can’t-miss thriller.
