Here’s more about this fascinating book.

Against hope, Smythe Windwalker Daniels anonymity is compromised, and a threat has been made against her life. The danger impacts not only her life but the lives of those around her. She reluctantly accepts the FBI’s protection, hoping to testify and bring a promise of justice to a community.

Smythe is a woman with vision in her eyes and fire in her soul. From a young age, Smythe was discriminated against as a mixed-race girl in a predominantly white neighborhood. She travels to Hawaii to escape the corporate rat race, only to get entangled in a pesticide poisoning cover-up attempt by a mega corporation. While on the run, she seeks to find meaning in events that now threaten her life. Through a series of misadventures, she discovers how all events are all woven together in this tapestry called “life.”

As she uses her past experience to find meaning in her present, she begins to see beauty in the midst of chaos. But the harder she tries to hide, the more difficult it is to survive.

NO PLACE TO HIDE is available for Pre-Order on AmazonIndieboundBookshop, and Barnes & Noble.

Why you need this book:

NO PLACE TO HIDE is, of course, a must-read for mystery fans and crime junkies, but it is also making waves outside this genre for being an unexpected source of inspiration and self-help.

The book examines deep and topical issues such as racial discrimination, indigenous injustices, the unscrupulousness of big business, our ingrained belief systems, and above all, the innate human need for belonging.

It's a powerful book not only because of the character development and the pulse-pounding plot line but because it ignites a personal journey in its readers as well.

Written by a highly acclaimed motivational speaker and success coach, the book offers profound life lessons, wrapped in an engaging, fictional story that presents an opportunity for the audience to grow alongside the protagonist, without even realizing that it has happened.

Whether you want to embark on a personal quest for self-discovery or just want to curl up with an action-packed mystery, "No Place to Hide" has something in it for everyone. The story is easily consumable and can be appreciated on many levels. It's a gripping novel that also has the ability to leave a lasting impression.

Meet the Author

Opa Hysea Wise is an American author, born to mixed race parents. She grew up across the fabric of the United States and currently resides out West.

As an adult, Opa understood the deep need for connection that we as humans have. Like so many people of color, she came to experience a sense of “otherness,” the longer she remained in the States. Those experiences fueled her desire to discuss diversity as the woven fabric within the American tapestry. She worked as a Training and Development specialist and manager in Government and Corporate organizations.

Often tasked to develop and deliver diversity courses, Opa brought a sense of understanding, compassion and a call to action to her audience, with the firm knowledge that returning to the connection we all have as one body in this universe would be but one step to returning to love.
