This one keeps you guessing to the very end. A must read for fans of thriller suspense novels.
From its tense opening pages 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.
A true five star rating!
I found this book to be an easy, enjoyable read. It pulled me in right from the beginning. It alternates between first and third person narratives which I normally find somewhat annoying but I think really added to the character development in this story.
Annabelle is at the center of the mystery. Her family has been on the run as long as she can remember but from what? When her father, obsessed with keeping his family safe, dies, Annabelle is left with only questions about her past and the unknown threat from which she has spent her life running.
Bobby Dodge is the detective brought into consult on gruesome discovery on the grounds of the long-defunct state mental hospital. A piece of evidence at the scene ties Annabelle to what remains of a horrible crime. Discovering Annabelle's identity and how she is related to this crime is what drew me in.
The plot, while somewhat complicated, never gets terribly convoluted and things are tied up neatly in the end. I felt like the conclusion, though satisfactory, was a little rushed and a little too neat. However, the characters were enjoyable and it was a light, quick read. I'd recommend it as a great vacation/beach read. It was never slow and there is some light handed romantic interest that never goes over the top. Just enough of everything, I'd say to be an all-around good read.
Bobby Dodge first appeared in the book, "Alone". Reading that book first will help you a lot with understanding a few of the characters in this book.
This book was awesome! I'm a true Lisa Gardner fan now after having read three of her books! This book kept me guessing right until the end!
Very good mystery, suspense. I love Boddy Dodge and DD Warren - two tough dectives. This is book 2 in this series. I'm moving right on to the next one in the series, The Neighbor.
A book that will keep you guessing and reading until the very end. Hard to put down. A must read.
