1.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining but not very interesting
Hidden in Plain View was not the book I'd hoped it would be. If you are a fan of mystery books with high drama and intrigue this is not the book for you. There were several scenes that simply did not make sense and added nothing to the plot. The characters - except for Darryl and the killer - were very flat and one dimensional. I agree that it was an easy read - but...

5.0 von 5 Sternen A real treat, 2. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
After solving a case involving Neo-Nazis, Baltimore Herald journalist Daryl Billups is quickly rising to the top of his profession. The paper has given the African-American crime reporter a promotion and a hefty raise, and he has become a local TV star.
Daryl reports on a serial killer whose African-American victims are found with decals of confederate flags all over their face. While most individuals quickly assume these are hate crimes, Daryl wonders if there might be a different motive to the murders. However, as Daryl begins his own inquiries, the killer hones in on the reporter, planning to add him to his rising count of murders.
HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW, the second Daryl Billups mystery (see the delightful UP JUMPED THE DEVIL), is a very entertaining who-done-it. The story line requires some acceptance of the seemingly impossible. For instance, the instant "beaming" of Daryl from Baltimore to an Atlanta crime scene occurs faster than anyone could have even cleared Hartsfield's waiting area. However, those few instances fail to take away from the fast-paced, fast-paced, and enjoyable plot. Daryl remains a fabulous hero. The secondary players, especially the city of Baltimore, imbue the novel with a special warmth and depth. With novels like this one, Blair S. Walker will not remain hidden in plain view of the local bookstore.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This was pure enjoyment!, 4. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Only read this book if U want to be entertained! Blair Walker did a masterful job with the hero Darryl Billups and a newspaper reporter---turned sleuth role. We can identify with the realness of his character and how he deals with his lady, her son, and her crazy sister. He takes his time, showing us a peak at the murder in different stages of schizophrenia. Mabye you won't be fooled by the the ohvious ploys to take you off the scent of the real killer but you would never imagine the method used and why it works! This is a fun book with plenty of action, sex, and intriguing characters. I read it and decided I MUST read the first one and any others as soon as they come off the presses!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read mystery murder!, 19. März 2000
This is the first time reading Mr. Walker's novels, but one thing for sure, I'm definetly hooked. I found myself laughing out loud and sometimes saying "oh uh uh". And once starting "HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW" I didn't and couldn't put it down. A easy read but, also very tantalizing.
Mr. Walker's writing is refreshing after reading about "she did me wrong, or he aint' about nothing books". Can't hardly wait for the next book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen This was a unique, enjoyable book from a black author, 29. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I got this book in the mail by accident, because I wanted the Hidden In Plain View about African American quilts. I'm glad about the mixup, though, because I had never heard of Blair Walker. This brother definitely has a fresh writing style and a different world view. And his main character, Darryl Billups, is witty and kind-hearted. I could relate to the way Darryl and his girlfriend Yolanda have a normal, loving, respectful black relationship, something you rarely see in literature. And sisters, you will not believe who is killing the buppies dying in this book. I didn't particularly care for the incest scene, but it did make a strong point about the killer. There were some other freaky things in the book, but they weren't objectionable. And I loved how the pace zips along without boring lulls. Blair Walker, you go boy!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent murder mystery with interesting hero and villan, 24. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Blair Walker has done an excellent job creating a believable character and hero, Darryl Billups the reporter, who I could really relate to as an African American professional. The plot of "Hidden in Plain View" is very fascinating and the murder method of the serial killer is completely original! Once into it, I could barely put the book down. I am now ready for the NEXT Darryl Billups mystery! A special thanks goes to Blair Walker for coming out and discussing his novel with our Book Club. It definitely provided us a new perspective on the book and writing in general.

Hidden in Plain View was not the book I'd hoped it would be. If you are a fan of mystery books with high drama and intrigue this is not the book for you. There were several scenes that simply did not make sense and added nothing to the plot. The characters - except for Darryl and the killer - were very flat and one dimensional. I agree that it was an easy read - but maybe a bit too easy. I must be honest and add that all of the other members of my book club really enjoyed this book. I also appreciated Mr. Walker's portryal of African Americans as hard working and sensitive and, being from Baltimore, I loved the city references. (Although there is no Ida Wells Hospital here.) I just felt that as a mystery it left a lot to be desired.

I read Mr. Walkers first book, and couldn't wait for his next adventure. Hidden in Plain View is well written and fast reading. Mr. Walkers contemporary writing style is a breath of fresh air. I only hope that his books are feature as must reads.
Don't blow your chance to get to know this new a wonder Afro-American author. It will trully be your loss.
This book is a must read!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Read, 24. November 1999
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Daryll is someone we all can relate to, and is witty and funny. Blair Walker has done a great job with this book and the first one was great also. The characters are down to earth. The book had me laughing and the surprises kept me reading. I can't wait for the next installment.
