Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Reed will find lots of work in the audio whodunit world. She has a low, slightly gravelly voice that fits the genre well. She distinguishes characters without trying to be them and helps a wacky protagonist become a believable character. The gruesome story begins with the discovery of the bodies of six young girls who are bagged, tagged and shelved in an old underground chamber in the yard of an abandoned Boston insane asylum. Bobby Dodge (returning from Gardner's Alone) is called to the crime scene. Gardner offers up numerous plausible suspects, suspense and violence, and lots of requited and unrequited love. The book is longer than it needs to be, somewhat repetitive and has a hokey ending with a murderer who appears out of nowhere. But Hide is still an enjoyable thriller and a well-read listen.

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Gardner fans look out: this one will take your breath away. Near the grounds of an abandoned mental hospital, a buried chamber is discovered. Inside are six bodies, one of which may be that of a girl who has been missing for two decades--the best friend of a woman, Annabelle, who has spent her childhood moving from city to city, from identity to identity, hiding from someone or something totally unknown to her. She's been safe for several years now, but a single act of bravery plunges her right back into a life of fear. This is a rich, complex tale that juggles a handful of mysteries at once. Who is the killer, and could it be someone connected with a notorious child murderer? Who or what was Annabelle's family running from? How did her father, a mathematician, know how to set up foolproof new identities? And why does an old sketch of a murder suspect look unsettlingly like Annabelle's father? Head and shoulders above anything else Gardner's written, this riveting novel represents the author at the height of her powers. David Pitt

By Nicola Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Dec 4 2011
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Reason for Reading: I am reading this series but started with book #3, since my sister had the first two books it was the perfect opportunity to catch up with the series.

It is two years after the first book and Bobby Dodge has become a State Police detective. When Boston P.D. uncover an underground pit containing the bodies of six young girls, the similarities to the case in book one are too familiar not to notice. Bobby Dodge and D.D. Warren are partnered up to investigate. Not only will this take them back to the persons concerned with the first case but also introduce them to a young woman who has spent her entire life on the run and she doesn't even know why.

This was a thrilling, exciting read and introduces D.D. Warrren as a main character for the first time. More time is spent on fleshing out her character and introducing us to this smart, tough, acerbic detective whom we only briefly met in book one. The case is full of twists and turns and only slowly reveals information as it unravels making it virtually impossible to completely solve on your own until near the end. One can guess who the "bad guy" may be, but the full motive and reasoning is only slowly unwound. With the setting taking place on the grounds of an old abandoned mental hospital the atmosphere is perfect for the cast of suspects who include former patients and staff, to name a few. Since I started with book 3, this one is much more what I'm used to and better than book one *but* the plot is closely tied to Alone and they should be read in order, as Hide is full of spoilers for Alone. Good creepy story!

By Pat the cat TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Feb. 1 2014
Format: Paperback
I've read a few Gardner books and liked them. It was my first novel featuring detective DD Warren. I found her to be an interesting character, although in this book she plays 2nd violin and leaves the spotlight to state agent Bobby. As suspense goes, this one is very good one. The author takes her time building up the confusion as she introduces new characters. She purposely brings up new facts and stands back as we try to figure it out if these new avenues are relevant or just dead-end. Who is Annabelle, who were her parents, why did they run and how does the gruesome murder of 6 other little girls relate to Annabelle....And what about that other kidnapping?! Ah, got you!!!! The book moves along at a good clip and the detectives involved are not too cliché. The ending is good, although it could have been a tad more frantic given the high level of alertness that the author had managed to build. This is the reason that I don't give it top marks. Nonetheless, I recommend this book if your looking for a clever suspense...4 out of 5 stars (very good).

Format: Hardcover
Lisa Gardner (Alone and Gone) has fashioned a chilling, complex thriller that interweaves several mysteries.

A cache of mummified bodies, six to be exact, is discovered on the grounds of an abandoned mental hospital. Police detective Bobby Dodge is called to the scene to find one clue in this underground burial site - a silver locket bearing the name Annabelle Granger.

Shortly thereafter a woman comes to the police station saying she is Annabelle Granger. This is a woman who has spent her life to date running and hiding, but why and from whom? This began in her childhood when the family moved at the direction of her father. We read: "To this day, I don't know how many cities we lived in. Or how many names I assumed. My childhood became a blur of new faces, new towns, and the same old suitcases. We would arrive, find the cheapest one-bedroom apartment. My father would set out the next day, always coming home with some kind of job-photo developer, McDonald's manager, salesclerk. My mother would unpack our meager belongings. I would be shuffled off to school." She was always fearful but she did not know what made her afraid.

In order to delve into Annabelle's past and solve the mystery of the recently discovered bodies Bobby is thrown with his former lover, D. D. Warren. The questions torment but they must be answered. Is the original killer still alive or is there a copycat psychopath running loose? What is the tie between the dead and the former mental hospital?

Author Gardner is known for her clever scripting and she has done it again in her trademark chilling fashion. The road to the surprising conclusion twists and turns but it's a road well worth taking.
