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.

"Through expert use of red herrings, Gardner takes the reader on a nail-biting ride to the thrilling climax." (Publishers Weekly)
"Gardner fans look out: this one will take your breath away." (Booklist)
If you are looking for a great listen that combines an excellent story with an outstanding story teller, then look no more. Ms. Reed is by far one of the best readers yet! Her talents combined with Ms. Gardner is . . . well I like to think of it, "when the clouds part and the stars are just right." You will not be disappointed with this selection because Ms. Gardner is one of the best authors of the times. Ms. Reed is, again, an outstanding story teller. Thank you both for one of the best works that I've had the pleasure to listen to in a long time!
I know you don't know me, but I need you to trust me. Hide is engaging from the start, from the introduction of the main characters to the build up to the surprising end, this book keeps a steady pace. If there were a 3-1/2 star rating, this book would get it. I didn't rate it higher because while "steady" is good, to be able to say "exhilarating" or "exciting", or "I couldn't wait to get back to this book", are what 4 and 5 stars are made of. Hide wouldn't be a waste of a credit, but just know you will get a little better than mediocre.
I literally coulnd't put the MP3 player down! I have never read any of Lisa Gardner's books before, but I am about to DL more!
I won't outline the plot as others have already done this, but I was quite gripped by this book. I recently listened to and enjoyed the "Survivors club" and if anything I think I enjoyed this novel even more. The plot certainly kept me guessing to the last - download and enjoy.
This book is great. Lisa Gardner had the ability to capture your attention and hold it from start to finish. She keeps you wondering who the villain is or if there is a villain until the end of the book. Be sure to also read "Gone" if you have not done so. It will give you more depth into the characters in "Hide. She consistantly writes great suspense.
I love books!
This was my first Lisa Gardner, excellent. I blew through it in two days. I'll listen to some more, for sure. It was fast paced, action packed, interesting characters. It seemed to be a step above the normal thriller.
I enjoy almost all of Lisa Gardener's books. I burned Hide to disk and listened in my car. At certain points in the book I would drive around the block or sit in my car just to keep listening. A very satisfying listen.
I loved this book should read Alone first. I did not have trouble pick up the story without previous knowledge of Alone. Great suspense. A must read. After listening to this i went and located her other novels, Alone and Gone. These also are excellent
I'm no kid, but I do live next to a cranberry bog.
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.
At the beginning, I didn't think that i was going to like this book. But as time went on, I got really attached to each of the main characters and was engrossed in the book up until the unforseen twist at the end. I even felt a little tear well up inside me at the end. I enjoyed every minute of this book, and the surprise twist at the end...no one likes surprises, but this one made a great book better.
