Before trying to read Hide I highly recommend reading Gardner's novel Alone or this novel will have many confusing plot points.
Even though this novel is considered part of the D.D Warren series it follows more closely her partner Bobby Doge, Warren's ex lover. The two of them are now partners in homicide and they get called to a crime scene where six mummified children have been unearthed. One of the children is wearing a locket with the name Annabelle Granger engraved on its surface. However, things get complicated when a woman shows up in the police station claiming not only that she is Annabelle Granger but that her father has moved her around the country for the last two decades and she has been living under a dozen of assumed names for the last twenty years. To make matters more interesting, or more convoluted, "Annabella" has a striking resemblance to Catherine Gagnon the main character in Gardner's novel Alone.
