“First-rate.... A nail-biting ride to the thrilling climax.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“The crises are gripping, the protagonists earn quick sympathy and the pages turn with speed.”—Wall Street Journal
“Sometimes a series writer, in this case Lisa Gardner, rises above to produce a book that stands alone because it's that good. Indeed, Gardner continues with her lead character from Alone, Massachusetts state police Det. Bobby Dodge, but in Hide, she really brings her game.”—Daily News, New York
"An intense, suspenseful story…”—Chicago Tribune
From the Hardcover edition.

The story starts out with a woman, Annabel, wondering if she'd taken the right things with her when she's asked to move as a child of seven. Her father, an MIT math professor tells his daughter that she can only take 2 things. From Boston, the family moves to Florida, where the father gives everyone a new name, and he gets a job driving a taxi. Little by little, Gardner lets the clues out, leading her readers down a path of suspense, without ever letting them guess 'who-done-it'. At least I can never figured it out.
In this story, we have Bobby Dodge, and might I say this is one of Gardner's most intriguing characters. The kind of guy you wished would come to your door asking you to be a potential witness. I'd be making things up just to keep him around.
Then you have D.D. Warren, a woman all of us wish were could be. She smart, tough, capable, and great looking, and of course, she and Bobby had a thing years back. D.D. is called onto the case where an underground den with the bodies of six young girls mummified in plastic bags, are laid out on two shelves. One of the girls wears a silver locket that has the name Annabel on it. Imagine Annabel's surprise when she recognizes the locket as one she gave to her best friend just before the move to Florida?
Because this story involves the characters from Alone, Katherine Argon is involved. How Gardner meshes her two stories is amazing and totally unpredictable. It's like Gardner likes to paint herself in corners just so she can use her considerable gift as a writer, to pull the story back out.
I read this story in 2 days which is no record for me. If I pick up a Lisa Gardner novel, I'm doomed to a few sleepless nights until I can know what's happening to characters I love. And that's what makes Gardner so good at her job, that, and the way she gets all the police lingo and procedures down. I feel like I'm in the precinct with her whenever I read one of Gardner's novels.
Hide is masterful suspense, and Gardner has yet to disappoint me.
Annabelle has the good fortune to have Bobby Dodge, former police sniper and now state police detective, assigned to the case and take a very personal interest. The fast-moving plot revolves around the crime scene on the large grounds of a long-closed hospital for the mentally disturbed and former patients and employees of the facility. Intriguing to Dodge is the uncanny resemblance that Annabelle has to the older Catherine. Is that mere coincidence?
The book is both interesting and plausible, with just enough misdirection, though the ending constructed by the author is not overly ambitious, perhaps predictable. The obvious attraction of mild-mannered hunk detective Bobby Dodge to D.D, Catherine, and Annabelle could have been more vigorously pursued. The book is another very good offering by the author, maybe not her best, but the nonetheless very good.
