Hidden From View is a confronting tale of power, abuse and control. Sex ,lies and love create a complex web of relationships and demonstrate how deeply our choices affect others.



Short Summary

The story commences as a flash back to the antagonist's youth to give the reader some insight into his early years. Tommy is an evil man - he is aware of this and relishes it. He uses power, control and abuse over the women in his life and shows no remorse despite being from a 'nice' family.

The protaganist Rita is able to overcome what Tommy subjected her to and in fact she discovers a rather novel way to give him a taste of his own medicine. There is a twist at the end where the real reason for Tommy's evil nature is revealed. There are themes of sexual deviance and erotica.

Development Pitch

Hidden From View is pacey, intriguing and downright shocking! It lures you into the story straight away due to being shrouded in mystery. It allows the viewer to see what really goes on behind closed doors when people are safely 'hidden from view' and are able to lie to themselves to appease their conscience. There are shocking erotica themes and sexual deviance, all of which are derived from the writers experience in child protection. It turns an otherwise sleepy city (Adelaide South Australia) into a sinister haven of secrets, lies and power. The story emphasizes the enormity of domestic violence and sexual abuse. The strong story line unfolds with a complex web of relationships entangled in such a way that can only end with dire consequences. Women will cheer when the antagonist finally gets what he deserves. This contemporary adult fiction is fresh, unique and leaves you wanting more. I dare you to try and put it down!
