Even if it's been too cold and recessionary in most of the country to hit the beach much this summer, the annual crop of page-turners hasn't suffered. Now comes one of the best. Hidden Man introduces Jason Kolarich, a middle-aged lawyer who, reeling from the recent death of his wife and daughter, takes on the case of a friend charged with killing a child molester. With an ear for banter that recalls Richard Russo and a giddily complex plot, Ellis provides the perfect transition from the Summer That Wasn't to whatever's next.
