The Hidden is a paranormal story based on a real Urban Legend of Japan. From the back cover:

Charlotte Howarth makes the 12 hour journey to Japan to meet her penpal for the first time. Friends since they were teenagers, Charlotte thinks the break away from home will do her good. However, after her arrival, things take a sinister turn. What are the unexplained noises, the nightly apparitions and the unusual behaviour from her friend caused by? Charlotte soon realises she must find out the truth, before it’s too late to save her friend, her sanity, and perhaps even her life…

The first advance review is in from Fans of Modern Horror, who had this to say:

“…Readers are left speechless! Dodwell will drag you in with her relatable, interesting characters and eerie atmospheres and she does not disappoint! This was an amazingly detailed and suspenseful for such a short!  I will definitely read this again, as I will read anything this awesome author lays upon us.  I most highly recommend to all fans of modern horror!”
