Publisher's Summary

It's a case that haunts Bobby Dodge to this day - the case that nearly killed him and changed his life forever. Now, the gruesome discovery of six mummified corpses resurrects his worst nightmare: the return of a killer he thought dead and buried.

Bobby's only lead is wrapped around a dead woman's neck. Annabelle Granger's childhood was a blur of new cities and assumed identities. But what or who her family was running from, she never knew. Now a body is unearthed from a grave, wearing a necklace bearing Annabelle's name, and the danger is too close to escape.

Dodge knows he must solve the mystery of Annabelle Granger, and to do that, he must team up with his former lover, partner, and friend D. D. Warren from the Boston P.D.

From its beginning to its shocking climax, Hide is a thriller that delves into our deepest, darkest fears - where there is no one to trust, where there is no place left to hide.

    "Great start, slightly disappointing end"
    What does Maggi-Meg Reed bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    She fits the main character very nicely and rounds her out as a street-smart girl of the appropriate age. Only once in a while does she go over the top and make it a bit cheesy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    All in all I listened to this start to finish with few breaks in between. It definitely had me hooked.


    Any additional comments?

    I skipped the first book of the series and went into this one instead. As criminal mysteries go it was pretty good. The gruesome murder had me hooked right away and guessing all the time as to who had done it. The police work was mostly believable, though a few minor parts seemed unlikely to happen in the real world. There were some very interesting plot lines merging together to keep me hanging by every word, but in the end I was disappointed by the whole

    "Seek out “Hide”!"

    The first line of Lisa Gardner’s “Hide” catches your attention right away. Definitely better than “It was a dark and stormy night.” No plot or character discussion here, but suffice to say that the first hour of the book after that first line hook keeps you careening along.

    There are a few slower moments scattered about, but all-in-all this book is a real page turner, word listener, or a CD switcher (your choice). Much of the credit also goes to the reader, the aptly named Maggi-Meg Reed.

    I’ve seen some criticism of the ending -- which may not be the book’s strongest point -- but by my standards the book hung together right through the slightly convoluted ending. Good book!

    I’m going to squeak out five stars for this one.

    "Felt cheated by the ending"

    I was hooked by this book at first -- a troubled young woman who has spent most of her life in hiding, a serial killer who may be stalking her, links between this case and another one from the detective's past. But I felt so cheated by the climax -- without spoiling the ending, it was bizarre that a case this complex, with an entire task force devoted to solving it, could almost go off the rails because of shoddy police work. They blow the budget on surveillance and travel and an ill-considered sting operation, but forget such minor details as background checks on suspects and remembering to guard the killer's target? Please! Also really bugged me that at least two people knew the identity of the serial killer years earlier but one of them is still portrayed as a hero. Very frustrating ending after such a promising premise.

    "Almost a great story"

    Lisa Gardner did a great job in setting up the plot at first with the mysterious 6 wet mummies and the peculiar behavior of many of the characters. This constantly keeps the readers on the edge. But when it is time to reveal the whole story, Lisa leave it to a single character. This guy basically fill in all the blanks. Suddenly, the whole novel loses its shroud of mystery, and with it, its excitement. I was anticipating a much more of a grand plot, or at least a long hard adventure for the other characters to find out the truth. Apparently not the case here. Also, the final fight between the psychopath and the "good guys" is also disappointing with little suspense.

    "Dull narration and not that compelling a story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Somewhat. I kept listening because I generally like Gardner books. I kept waiting for all the twists and turns I read in the (non-spoiler) reviews, but when they came (and there really weren't that many), they weren't all that exciting. Maybe it was the writing, maybe the narration. Or maybe the lead character just didn't do it for me. The narration was also monotone in a way that detracted from the story overall.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was actually surprised -- Gardner is very good at misdirection.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    More emotion in the general narration. She was somewhat monotone throughout, although there were some emotional scenes that were well done. I just had trouble connecting to her low, monotone voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably.

    "HIde Review"

    This book caught my attention right from the start. The book is a very good mystery and keeps you guessing throughout.

    I would greatly recommend this book.

    "Highly Recommended for Lovers of Dark, Grisly Mysteries"

    Gripping and gritty, I found this book was too intense; it gave me nightmares.I might have fared better if I’d read it instead of listening because then I could have skimmed over the more graphic violence. I feel the same about Dean Koontz. The writing was nice and tight. The narrator did it justice,, and I always knew who was talking, man or woman. I appreciated the mix of Amy’s perspective in first-person, while Bobby’s was third. The mystery kept me guessing until the very end. I also enjoyed the light romantic element and Amy’s dog, Bella. Highly recommended for lovers of dark, grisly mysteries with superbly drawn characters. Contains child sexual abuse and murder of the serial variety.
