|Plot Summary of Hide and Seek|
|"Absolutely wonderful. There is no one better than Patterson, other than his one poor book, I've never read anything I disliked. This book is the most suprising and fantastically written book I've encountered in a long time. I love this book, it's on my heavy rotation of books that I re-read. There is nothing about this book I'd ever want to see changed. I absolutely recommend this book."

These problems threaten to expose Will for who he is as well as destroy his marriage. Finally, Maggie feels she is reliving her past when she stands trial for murder. "
