Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

You have good reason to be afraid….

It was a case that haunts Bobby Dodge to this day—the case that nearly killed him and changed his life forever. Now, in an underground chamber on the grounds of an abandoned Massachusetts mental hospital, the gruesome discovery of six mummified corpses resurrects his worst nightmare: the return of a killer he thought dead and buried. There’s no place to run. . . . Bobby’s only lead is wrapped around a dead woman’s neck. Annabelle Granger has been in hiding for as long as she can remember. Her 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. This time, she’s not going to run. You know he will find you. . . .

The new threat could be the dead psychopath’s copycat, his protégé—or something far more terrifying. Dodge knows the only way to find him is to 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. But the trail leads back to a woman from Bobby’s past who may be every bit as dangerous as the new killer—a beautiful survivor-turned-avenger with an eerie link to Annabelle. 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.

Mana recenzija/My review

Kopš pirmās grāmatas beigām pagājuši divi gadi un Bobijs pārkvalificējies par štata detektīvu. Jau otrajā dienā viņam tiek smaga lieta, turklāt ne šāda tāda, bet gan tāda, kas atgādina Katrīnas nolaupīšanu. Diemžēl pamestās Bostonas garīgi neveselo slimnīcas teritorijā tiek atrasti sešu meiteņu mumificējušies līķi, kurām tā ‘’nepaveicās’’. Pa to laiku arī D.D. Vorena vairs nav vien detektīve, bet kļuvusi par seržanti.

Par spīti visām līdzībām jau visai drīz kļūst skaidrs, ka vainīgais šajā lietā ir pavisam cits. Izmeklēšanā palīdz Anabella, kuras medaljons atrasts pie viena no līķiem; izrādās, ka viņas bērnības draudzene. Anabella, pateicoties ārkārtīgi paranoiskajam tēvam, bet ar labu iemeslu, tika sveikā. Kopš septiņu gadu vecuma ik pa laikam pameta dzīves vietu un mainīja identitāti. Tēva mācības un bēguļošana atbildīga par to, kāda Anabella kļuvusi; viņas vienīgā draudzene ir viņas suns Bella. Izmeklēšanas laikā atklātās patiesības visai šokējošas un ne viena vien asara gan no Anabellas, gan citiem tēliem.

Uz pāris epizodēm iesaistīta Katrīna. Šajā ziņā varētu piebilst, ka arī šoreiz Bobijs nemācās no kļūdām un ļaujas apdraudētas sievietes (Anabellas) valdzinājumam, un šķiet, ka šoreiz arī varētu būt nopietnāk.

Līdz gandrīz pašām beigām tiek uzturēta intriga par vainīgo. Tiek doti vairāki varianti, kā viens no slimnīcas pacientiem īsi pirms slimnīcas slēgšanas Kristofers Eolla (interesants un biedējošs stāsts par šo indivīdu). Bet patiesība par īsto viens no tām šokējoši pārsteidzošajiem atklājumiem.

Prognoze, ka Vorena darbība būs vairāk, piepildījās : )

                                                                                                                                                

It’s been two years since the events of the first book Bobby has qualified to be a state detective. Already in his second day he receives a heavy case and not just any case but one that resembles of where Catherine was kept. Six mummified bodies of little girls are found in a pit at territory of abandoned Boston’s mental hospital. In those two years D.D. Warren also isn’t detective anymore and has advanced to position of Sgt.

Despite all similarities early on it’s clear that the perpetrator in this case is someone else. Annabelle whose locket is found on one of the bodies becomes a real help; it’s found out that the girl is her childhood friend. Thanks to her paranoid (with a good reason) father it wasn’t his daughter Annabelle. Since she was seven years old they were forced to flee and continue to change their home and identities. Lessons and advices from the father are responsible for what his daughter has become; and that her only friend is her dog Bella – much braver than Courage the Cowardly Dog. The investigation reveals some shocking truth and are responsible for few tears from Annabelle and other characters.

Catherine Gagnon participates in few episodes. In this case I should mention that Bobby doesn’t learn from his mistakes and once again falls for a damsel in distress (Annabelle); my guess that this time it might become more serious.

The intrigue of who is the perpetrator is maintained almost till the end. There are given few candidates as former patient Christopher Eola shortly before closing the hospital (interesting and frightening story about him). But the truth about who it really is is one of those shockingly surprising revelations.

My guess that D.D. Warren will participate more was accurate. : )
