The Hidden

(2013)
(The first book in the Hidden series)
A novel by

 
Egypt, 1940 and young university professor Azi Ibrahim is brutally murdered in the Sinai desert, leaving behind his new bride, 20-year-old Egyptian-born teacher Aimee Ibrahim. The motive for the popular and much-loved professor's murder appear incomprehensible to Aimee until she is given a mysterious package containing a diary, written in Arabic, twenty-two years previously. The diary belonged to Aimee's mother, the Egyptian Sultan's scandalous daughter Hezba, a radical revolutionary, who documented a year in the life of the 1919 Egyptian Nationalist revolution. As the narrative moves dramatically forward, Aimee discovers why the scandal of her mother Hezba's life was always kept hidden from her. Hezba Al Shezira lived by just one rule; to be true to her own desires, even if it meant shaming her father, her culture and everything it stood for, but her ultimate aim was to unshackle her country from the tyranny of British rule. In 1919, 17-year-old Hezba writes that she has taken a lover and has joined a secret terrorist organization - the Rebel Corp - who are working to oust the British from her beloved Egypt. Hezba also documents the violence she's subjected to in the harem. As the Second World War closes in around her, Aimee is plunged into an evil world of terrorism, rebel factions and the unspoken horrors, secrets and repressions of her mother's life in 1919. In her attempt to find her husband's killers and bring them to justice, Aimee experiences not only the love, desire and passion she has always craved, but the darker forces of a disintegrating political situation, and realizes to her horror that there are disturbing and terrifying parallels between her own life and that of her mother's. The Hidden is a fast-paced story of a two worlds colliding and the devastating fall-out that ensues.
