4.0 von 5 Sternen A CHILLING, COMPLEX THRILLER 1. Februar 2007
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Lisa Gardner (Alone and Gone) has fashioned a chilling, complex thriller that interweaves several mysteries.

A cache of mummified bodies, six to be exact, is discovered on the grounds of an abandoned mental hospital. Police detective Bobby Dodge is called to the scene to find one clue in this underground burial site - a silver locket bearing the name Annabelle Granger.

Shortly thereafter a woman comes to the police station saying she is Annabelle Granger. This is a woman who has spent her life to date running and hiding, but why and from whom? This began in her childhood when the family moved at the direction of her father. We read: "To this day, I don't know how many cities we lived in. Or how many names I assumed. My childhood became a blur of new faces, new towns, and the same old suitcases. We would arrive, find the cheapest one-bedroom apartment. My father would set out the next day, always coming home with some kind of job-photo developer, McDonald's manager, salesclerk. My mother would unpack our meager belongings. I would be shuffled off to school." She was always fearful but she did not know what made her afraid.

In order to delve into Annabelle's past and solve the mystery of the recently discovered bodies Bobby is thrown with his former lover, D. D. Warren. The questions torment but they must be answered. Is the original killer still alive or is there a copycat psychopath running loose? What is the tie between the dead and the former mental hospital?

Author Gardner is known for her clever scripting and she has done it again in her trademark chilling fashion. The road to the surprising conclusion twists and turns but it's a road well worth taking.

5.0 von 5 Sternen spannende Urlaubslektüre 2. Dezember 2009
Format:Taschenbuch
Sehr spannende fortsetzung des Vorgängers Alone. Vielleicht kein Meisterwerk für literarisch Anspruchsvolle, aber stimmig und fesselnd. Glaubwürdige Charaktere, klare Story und kein 08/15 Thriller. Ohne zuviel verraten zu wollen, aber das Ende hätte vielleicht auch ein wenig schlanker sein können, die Autorin hat da nochmal richtig in die Verwirrungskiste gegriffen. Für den Urlaub oder einen kalten winterabend auf der couch aber genau das Richtige: konnte das Buch nicht mehr aus der Hand legen!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Versteckspiel 26. Februar 2014
Von Gerda VINE-PRODUKTTESTER
Format:Taschenbuch
Von Kindheit an ist Annabelle an permanente Ortswechsel gewöhnt. Nirgends werden sie und ihre Eltern sesshaft. Was erst wie ein Spiel aussieht , wird für sie immer ernster ,als sie erkennt, dass eine Gefahr auf sie lauert, die sie nicht deuten kann ,aber deren Präsenz sie sich schmerzlich bewusst ist. Sie lebt einsam und zurückgezogen, bis eines Tages in eine Gruft mit sechs Kinderleichen entdeckt wird und eine der Leichen ihren Anhänger trägt. Annabelle wendet sich an die Polizei, eine tödliche Verfolgungsjagd beginnt.
‚Hide‘ ist ein weiterer D.D. Warren Roman. D.D. und ihre Crew begleiten den Leser bei einer hautnahen Verbrechensaufklärung. Flott und spannend geschrieben, auch wenn ich die Auflösung nicht wirklich schlüssig finde.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining and quick read! 6. Februar 2007
Von Amy Y. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
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.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Family secrets 7. Juli 2008
Von Linda Pagliuco - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
You can run, but you can't hide - at least not forever. That's what decorator Annabelle Granger learns when, after 25 years of changing homes and changing names, she returns to Massachusetts where all the madness began. It's obvious to Annabelle that her parents were protecting their family from something or someone, but never once did they reveal the reason why, and now both have died. Shortly after establishing herself in Boston, Annabelle reluctantly becomes involved in helping the police with a 20 year old serial killer case. The deeper they delve, the more danger she's in.

Author Gardner manages to spring a few surprises in this thriller. Ultimately, the resolution owes more to luck (bad luck) than to solid evidence, but the ending is fairly satisfactory. Read this and you'll never view an abandoned mental institution in the same light again!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Deliciously creepy 8. Februar 2007
Von Bookreporter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Lisa Gardner's work is most easily classified within the thriller genre. But in her new novel, she infuses a solid, complex mystery into the plotline, nicely balancing excitement --- make that terror --- with whodunit elements to create a work easily accessible to fans of any genre. HIDE is much more than a nominal sequel to ALONE; it is a deliciously creepy tale that begins with a crime scene so startling and horrific that it resonates throughout the book.

HIDE marks the return of Massachusetts State Police Detective Bobby Dodge and his former partner, Boston Police Detective D.D. Warren. Despite Dodge's newly minted position, Warren brings him into a Boston investigation. The crime scene --- a vision of nightmares that will shut you down --- is reminiscent of the Richard Umbrio case that figured so prominently in ALONE. As the result of evidence found at the current scene, one of the victims is tentatively identified as Annabelle Granger.

Thus, Dodge and Warren are baffled when a woman shows up in their office and identifies herself as Granger. She relates the story of a life lived on the run, with her family changing residences and identities on an annual basis, crisscrossing the country as if being pursued by an omnipresent, unknown tracker.

Dodge and Warren's investigation is further complicated by the fact that Granger bears an uncanny, startling resemblance to Catherine Gagnon, who as a child was one of Umbrio's kidnapping victims. Gagnon grew up into an exotic, enigmatic lady who may have manipulated Dodge into shooting her husband.

Another issue is the slowly blossoming, if reluctant, attraction between Dodge and Granger. Dodge struggles with the impropriety of a relationship with a subject he is charged with protecting, and possibly investigating. Granger finds that she is experiencing emotions long gone cold, if ever felt at all.

Gardner keeps the plot wheels slowly but steadily moving toward a cataclysmic conclusion that ties up the apparently irresolvable plotlines with a plausible and unpredictable explanation.

While built upon the foundation of ALONE, HIDE stands firmly on its own. Primarily character driven --- the crime scene at the beginning is over two decades old, and most of the violence in the book is confined to one scene --- HIDE is part puzzle, part romance and all good. Don't miss this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "At eighteen our convictions are hills from which we look; at forty-five they are the caves in which we hide" F.Scott Fitzgerald 19. November 2009
Von michael a. draper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Bobby Doyle is a Mass. State Police Detective. He's called out to the scene of a gruesome mass murder that took place in the grounds of the old State Mental Hospital. Six bodies of children are found in an underground chamber. It is estimated that the crime took place over twenty five years ago.

One of the bodies is identified by a chain around her neck wih the name Annabelle Granger. However, a woman who read about the crime told police that she was Annabelle and that she had given the locket to her friend, Dori Petracelli, when she was seven years old.

Annabelle also bears a striking resemlblance to Catherine Gagnon who Bobby met at a hostage scene. When she was younger, she had been captive in an underground chamber but was rescued by hunters who heard her cries. Later, in the hostage scene, events occurred that saved Catherine but Bobby questioned if the entire scene had been staged and that he may have been set up.

The reader learns the background of why Annibelle had been targeted by a preditor and what happened next.

Bobby Doyle is a well described character. He is brave but has a conscience and worries if his actions are always the most appropriate. He is easy to sympathize with and enjoy.

Lisa Gardner creates suspense as if she were a chef, putting the ingredients together for a feast. The momentum increases as we near the conclusion of this well crafted plot. In addition, the author gives her readers a surprise toward the end which pulls everything together in a professional manner.

Highly recommended.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great Beginning, Confounding Ending 28. Juli 2007
Von Jonah's Mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This was my first Lisa Gardner book, and I read it quickly. It was fast paced, interesting--a real page turner. However, the ending made absolutely no sense. Another reviewer termed it perfectly: "contrived." It was as if the author had run out of steam and needed to finish the book, so she threw something out there. *SPOILER ALERT*--What frustrated me the most was how Annabelle's highly "intelligent" father, was unable to track down his brother after he shot him in the head. Also, it would seem that someone shot in the head would probably suffer brain damage, so why would "Russell" think that his brother was still a threat, and instead of running from "Tommy," why not search for him?! But the most illogical "surprise," was how "Ben" coincidentally found Annabelle and "knew" it was her. Non-sensical, I say! Other than the disappointing ending, this was a good read.
