Annabelle Granger and her parents have led a life on the run since Annabelle was seven years old. She and her parents rarely lived anywhere for more than a couple of years, new names, new identities. She never knew why. Twenty-five years later, her parents dead, she comes back to Boston where she last felt free and comfortable. In Boston she lives in a somewhat reclusive state, just in case. A shocking news report that Annabelle Granger is dead, part of a gruesome crime scene involving six children buried in an underground tomb on the grounds of the closed down State Mental Hospital, causes Annabelle to come forward. Annabelle, now known as Tanya, tells Detectives Bobby Dodge and D.D. Warren her mortifying story. The investigation of the serial killings reveals more than one suspect. Annabelle insists on being part of the investigation, and ends up reclaiming her name and her life. This is fast-paced and completely engrossing. I loved all the characters and I haven't read one Lisa Gardner book that hasn't kept me completely enthralled, entertained, and in suspense!

Mass. State Police Detective Bobby Dodge is called to the scene of a gruesome mass murder on the grounds of the old state mental hospital. The bodies of six girls are found in a chamber. Their bodies have begun to liquify. Only one body is temporarily identified as Annabelle Granger from a name on a locket. However, a woman reads the story and tells police she is Annabelle. She had given the locket to her friend twenty five years ago. She also tells police that someone had been looking into her window when she was age seven and her parents took this with such fear that they moved away to protect her. Another woman has the same appearance as Annabelle and she was also kidnapped and placed in a chamber but hunters heard her cries and rescued her. She was able to identify her kidnapper and he was inprisoned. The search goes to the mental hospital and former patients. Two men are identified as suspects. We learn of what they did that made them placed in a mental institution. Both men are now free and the police would like to question them but cannot find them. Gardner has done a splendid job keeping the reader guessing as to who the killer is and why they might have been after Annabelle. The author gives us a surprise that pulls everything together nicely. A well done novel. Highly recommended.

I read the first one in this series and loved it so much that I bought this one. I couldn't put it down. I'll be looking for the next one in the series....

Ms. Klausner should try really reading the book!!!!!!!! I will tell you the book is great and read ALONE before you read this one to get the true impact. Lisa Gardner takes her writing to a new level with these two books. There is a serial killer and 'it' is a very bad person. Keep the lights on and read this one into the wee hours.

I downloaded this initially because I just got a Nook and wanted some cheap books to read. Hide was more than I expected! Good plot, solid story telling and likeable characters. It kept me reading all the way thru and with no let down at the end.

ahh its great to know that other people out there spend all night or all day trying to finish Mrs Lisa Gardner's books. she is a marvolus writer keeps readers on the edge and salvating for more. I honestly can say that an author who is able to have readers reading all night dying to get to the end is a true blessing and gift. Mrs Gardner has become my new fave author I spread her name where ever I go. two thumbs up!!

My first time reading a Lisa Gardner book was when I read the 1st book in the series, Alone, a while back. I remember that being really good but this book was just simply AMAZING!! I think I'm a pretty tough critic, especially when it comes to suspense novels and just how suspenseful they are. However, this book was one that I literally couldn't put down & at one point, even shook my head saying "OMG!" out loud!! It's THAT good! She is definitely a great writer. The only thing that can be confusing is that she writes some of the book in 3rd person and some in 1st person... That was a little different for me but it didn't matter. GREAT BOOK!!! Just started "The Neighbor" and can't wait to really get into it!!

This is the first book I've ever read from Lisa Gardner and happen to get it from a friend so I wasn't sure what to expect but after I read it nonstop I had to have the rest of her books. It was AWESOME.

This is one of Lisa Gardner's scariest novels-like a cross between Robert B.Parker and Michael Crichton,and partly it's better because it takes place in Boston(As do Robert B.Parker's books)and definitely one of her best/better novels.

Great Read. If you like 'fast pace', suspense THRILLERS... this is it! The story ending is a bit 'off-beat', but, all in all, it kept my attention with all the TWISTS and TURNS... making you wonder... WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON... and WHO REALLY 'IS' someone you CAN TRUST... when the main character who is HIDING... tries to START HER LIFE OVER... without having to LOOK OVER HER SHOULDER...

The novel Hide by Lisa Gardner is filled with suspense and drama. I really liked this book because the author portrays the characters in a realistic way. The book is about a woman named Annabelle Granger whose family has been on the run since she was seven and she¿s always wondered why; until six bodies are discovered on the grounds an abandoned mental assylum and one is wearing a locket with her name on it. With her help, detectives, Bobby Dodge and D.D Warren, set out to solve the case. Hide is in the point of view of Annabelle and Bobby, who are secretly falling for each other. This book has quite a bit of obscene language so adults and mature young adults would best enjoy it. If you like Fake ID, then you¿ll love Hide!

'This is the type of thriller that has you guessing to virtually the end and has a heart-pounding conclusion! This book sucked me in from the beginning with the story of Anabelle, whose father makes her constantly move and change identities like they are in the witness protection program. This finally finishes when Anabelle becomes an adult and both her parents are dead. In the meantime a grave is unearthed that contains the remains of murdered children. Somehow, Anabelle going into hiding has some connection to this grave. The author uses interesting story telling, having Anabelle's story appear in first person and using third person when describing the two detectives investigating the case. What really gets confusing is that the case is similar to another case inolving a woman who was a girlfriend of one of the detectives investigating the case and also bears a strong resemblence to Anabelle. Gardner's confusing plotline clues only adds to the reader's difficulty in putting the book down. Don't miss this one!'

I first purchased 'Alone' and then soon ran to the store for 'Hide'. I love the way Lisa Gardner has been able to fascinate me with all of the information she has been able to compile into an intense thriller! Don't worry, there is also a little romance to help you realize life is always hectic, but love is always there. I have now started going back with reading her first book, 'The Perfect Husband' and will continue to read all of Lisa's books. I have become an instant fan of hers and hope she continues to reel out amazing horror, shocking, suspenseful, and yes-some romance into her novels. I couldn't help, but to find myself having a crush on Detective Bobby Dodge and wanting to see his relationship with Annabelle develop. So I am hopeful that he, if not the both of them, return to a book in the future!

I have read all her books and I think this one was the best. I absolutely could not put it down. I spent an entire day on the couch one Saturday till it was finished. My 8 yr old was ready to kill me but I could not stop. Highly recommend it to anyone. You wont be able to put it down.

Hide is an exihalarating, suspenful and edge of your seat-nail-biting book. Lisa Garderner produces a book with twist and turns that keep you guessing until the very end!
Guest More than 1 year ago
This book is great! There is definately a new name in thriller writters, and that is lisa gardner. Spooky murder site, intersesting characters - much different than in other suspense novels - and a twisting plot that eradicates all other writer's attempts. Hide away for a couple of days in a remote location to really fel the tense, pulse-pounding horror of this book. I would love to hear from others who loved this, or any of her books.

Kept me guessing

This is the second book in the Detective D.D. Warren series, and it is also the second time that I have read this author.Detective Bobby Dodge is back! I am still confused as to why this series is not named the "Detective Bobby Dodge" series, since his role is more prominent in both this novel and its predecessor, Alone, which I read back in February.When six bodies are discovered in an underground chamber, Bobby Dodge's first thought is that the crime is reminiscent of Catherine Gagnon's case which was solved in Alone. Is this the work of the same man who kidnapped Catherine?I like this book even more than the first in the series! It is getting better!!I like Bobby Dodge, but it seems like he can't help himself but get involved with each of women in these books!!Gardner threw in lots of twists and red herrings that kept me guessing right up until the end. Just when I thought that I had everything figured out, there was another twist! I love it when authors do that - keeps me on my toes!I also like Maggie-Meg Reed's narration of this book.MY RATING: 4 stars!

I really liked this. Gardner does a great job of throwing you twists and turns and red herrings. Just when you think you¿re getting it figured out, a new detail emerges that changes everything. This was so suspenseful that it had me listening on my morning *and* afternoon commutes ¿ I¿m usually an afternoon listener only. I¿ve liked the Bobby Dodge books a lot more than Gardner¿s Quincy/Rainie series ¿ hopefully she¿ll write a few more.

I am a huge fan of Lisa Gardner. And I must say Hide was not a disappointment. The book is the 2nd book from the Bobby Dodge Series. A follow-up to Alone. I do recommend that you read Alone first. It will give you a little more history into the characters and the plot. I found this book to be one big puzzle. So many questions to be answered, so much mystery, and suspense. I had a hard time putting the book down. I¿m glad I purchased this book in hardcover. It¿s a keeper.

The bodies of six young girls are discovered in an underground chamber, they appear to have been long forgotten yet the heinous act is eerily familiar to another crime from the past. Is it possible that the two are connected?Det. Bobby Dodge is called in to work the scene and is stunned by what has been discovered. Annabelle Granger is stunned too- the front page of the Boston Herald says she is dead. Why have the newspapers named her as a victim and what is her role in the 25 year old murders? So many questions¿Lisa Gardner has created a gripping `whodunit¿ in this novel; I couldn¿t put it down until I knew how it all played out. Most of the time, I figure out who did `dunit¿ but not this time- kept me guessing until the end! A must read for any murder mystery fan

Page-turner that grabs and won't let go. Lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing. One woman has been hiding since age 7, only to have 'her' body discovered in an underground chamber, along with 5 other girls! Now what?
she_climber on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
Great page-turner. Vaguely remembered the characters from previous books, struggled remembering the previous storyline - although it wasn't crucial to understanding this book. Just would have flowed better.
