I want to be friends with Lisa Gardner in the real world, I want to know what’s it’s like to be such a storyteller, it would loooove to know what makes her tick! This is another page turning machine, I’ve read that this is a few of my friend’s favourite Lisa Gardner book, and I can see why.

Here we meet the really lovely Annabelle (or is she?) who has spent her entire life on the run, taught by her expert father, to be always ready to leave, life's contents in a handful of bags. Always ready to

My, oh my! Lisa Gardner had me scratching my head time and again as I read Hide, the second in her D.D. Warren mystery thriller series. Where do I start? Do I start with the six mummified corpses discovered in an underground hideaway on the grounds of the abandoned Mattapan State Hospital for the mentally ill? Do I start with Annabelle, the girl whose necklace is around the neck of one of the unfortunate victims? “Annabelle,” now an adult, is very much alive. Whose body wears the necklace? Who k ...more

Can someone please tell me why this isn't filed under The Bobby Dodge series? Serious question.

I mean, I like Det. Dodge enough. But I really like Det. D.D. Warren - not in a sexual way, but almost. I went into this series looking for a badass female lead. Instead the star, for both this book and the last, is the penis who can't stop sleeping with the female victims. Boooooooring. (Not really, this is actually a fun book.)

D.D. seems like the type of woman who would wear thigh high leather boot

Short Review for now:

I give this book a HIGH RECOMMEND! Hide by Lisa Gardner is Mystery/Suspense book that has one of the most fascinating set-ups I could imagine. Twists and turns all over the place. It's very unpredictable. There are two story lines: one of a survivor who must piece together her true identity, and the mystery of solving the heinous murder of 6 girls. Their bodies nearly mumified and found hidden at a scary, old abandoned mental institution-- in a make shift dungeon. It's a he

WARNING: not a review, more a rant.

I think those "tall stiletto boots" and "wild mass of blonde curls" on top of the slim-fitting jeans and tight-fitting shirt was just too much for me. I wanted to gag. I was pulled out of the story and wondered, momentarily, whether the author was a man using a female pseudonym. I paused my audio to google whether real-life cops in Boston (or anywhere) wore stiletto heels to work and actually found some interesting articles but all from Europe - where stiletto

This is the second book in the Detective D.D. Warren series, and it is also the second time that I have read this author.

Detective Bobby Dodge is back! I am still confused as to why this series is not named the "Detective Bobby Dodge" series, since his role is more prominent in both this novel and its predecessor, Alone, which I read back in February.

When six bodies are discovered in an underground chamber, Bobby Dodge's first thought is that the crime is reminiscent of Catherine Gagnon's case w

A continuation of ALONE, the first of the D.D.Warren series. I found HIDE also kept my attention from start to finish! Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Annabelle Granger’s life changed when she was seven years old. Her father, a professor of mathematics at MIT, arrived home one night, quickly packed some bags, and told her and her mother that they were leaving Boston. To seven-year-old Annabelle, it was exciting: they were running away from home.

They never stopped running after that night.

Every new town was a new name and a potential new threat. The problem was that Annabelle never knew what that threat was. Her father never told her what they

Lisa Gardner is very hit-and-miss with me as far as her plots go. Her books are generally well-written, but all the good writing in the world can't make up for bad characterization and poorly structured plot. What really sticks out to me with this novel was the ill-planned reveal of the criminal's identity.

I was ready to go along with the switches from first to third person, because while I usually find it annoying, I get that some authors find it a useful plot device, but in this case it just f

I had hoped that some of the awkwardness with the first book in this series was a matter of it being the first book, but this second book is perhaps even more awkward and it stands out all the more since the author really should know better by now. Granted, I don't know anything about crime scenes and being a cop and whatnot, but the choices that these officers make during their investigation strike me as so unrealistic. I understand that the plot needs to flow and all, and that the author is bo ...more

wederom een prachtig geschreven verhaal. Boeiend van het begin tot het einde. Lisa Garner laat u weer op het topje van uw stoel genieten van een enorm spannend boek, met een climax in het verhaal om u tegen te zeggen. In één woord "schitterend". Een zeer fantastisch en verrassend einde !
Bedankt ...ik heb er enorm van genoten :-)

Lisa Gardner continues to amaze with every different book I read! In this, her second of the DD Warren series, we follow a young girl who is continually on the run with her parents, from one town to the next, one state to the next, never staying long, always scared, always trying to stay one step ahead of......what.. she doesn’t know!

This is the first book I have read by Lisa Gardner and she has definitely gone to the top of my favourite Author list. This was one book I couldn't put down. It begins with the discovery of six mummified corpses in an underground chamber, in the grounds of an abandoned mental hospital, shocking even the most hardened cop. The discovery bares a strong resemblance to a very old case where the perpetrator was caught and is now dead. Did the dead psychopath have a protege or is there a copycat who i ...more

Never believe anything Lisa Gardner tells you. You may think she is being straight with you but, take my word for it, she is not to be trusted. She will change her story. Hide is the second book of hers that I have read and the second time she has mislead me repeatedly. If I didn’t know better, I’d say she is an unrepentant suspense mystery writer!

She is so unbelievable, that she gets five stars from me for Hide and I am immediately going to start reading the third book in the serie

Encore un excellent Lisa Gardner qui n’a pas son pareil pour créer un suspense du diable, une ambiance angoissante et des scènes parfois effrayantes ! 6 cadavres de petites filles découverts dans un tunnel sous un ancien Hôpital psychiatrique .. Le décor est planté … petit bémol pour la fin à laquelle il manque quelque chose je trouve ... 17/20
Mass. State Police Detective Bobby Dodge is called to the scene of a gruesome mass murder that took place on the grounds of the old State Mental Hospital. Six bodies of children are found in an underground chamber in a crime that appears to have taken place over twenty five years ago.

One body is tentatively identified by a chain around her neck with the name Annabelle Granger. However, a woman who read about the bodies being discovered, tells the police that she is Annabelle and when she was sev

A page-turner. I am burning some midnight oil just to know the ending. You will be left guessing right until the last chapter. However, I think the ending lack the KAPOW! effect.

Annabelle Granger and her family has been running away from something or someone all her growing up years. With each move to a new city, comes a new identity (little did she knows that Annabelle is not who she actually is!) The reason to their moving, dies with the passing of her parents and she was left wandering why b
So I originally picked up the first two books because they were the start of the D.D. Warren series and I wanted to read about a kick-ass female cop. The first two books are actually about Bobby and I really liked him. Unfortunately for me, they don't show D.D. Warren in a very good light. Instead of investigating she listens to gossip and jumps to conclusions about someone she knows better than most others do. Besides being a crappy friend it really kind of shows her as a crappy investigator. S ...more

I hesitate to read anything by authors with whom I'm unfamiliar, but since I found this one at the library I took the risk. I was not only not disappointed, I was hooked. 375 pages, and I had it read in two days. I never read a book in two days. It starts out in first-person narrative, the narrator being a young woman whose life as a child was spent being uprooted from one city to the next by a father who was obviously paranoid, but of what neither she nor we know. Then it switches to straight n ...more

A truly scary book. This isn't a horror genre per se, it's disturbing because all the horror in it is man made. Man is horror.

I didn't know it was a part of a series. I thought this was a stand alone book. It's that good.

Without having a single ghost or ghoul in it, it is scary.

And now it's about monsters and oval shaped offices. Things being bent out of shape. Sometimes blunt. Sometimes clever. Sometimes not even real.

In real life evil doesn't know it is evil. That's for history to decide.

I am a huge fan of Lisa Gardner and I enjoy reading her books a lot.

Hide is the follow-up to Lisa Gardner’s Alone, the 1st book in her Det. D.D. Warren Series, I was totally captivated. Hide can be read alone but I suggest one reads Alone first which gives you a better understanding of the characters that reappear in this story.
From the moment I opened the first page and read the first sentence – “My father explained it to me the first time when I was seven years old” – I knew that I was going
