Everyone thinks Emmy Dockery is crazy. Obsessed with finding the link between hundreds of unsolved cases, Emmy has taken leave from her job as an FBI researcher. Now all she has are the newspaper clippings that wallpaper her bedroom, and her recurring nightmares of an all-consuming fire.
Not even Emmy’s ex-boyfriend, field agent Harrison “Books” Bookman, will believe her that hundreds of kidnappings, rapes, and murders are all connected. That is, until Emmy finds a piece of evidence he can’t afford to ignore. More murders are reported by the day–and they’re all inexplicable. No motives, no murder weapons, no suspects. Could one person really be responsible for these unthinkable crimes?
INVISIBLE is James Patterson’s scariest, most chilling stand-alone thriller yet.
Wow was this book a wild ride! I’m going to be honest, I didn’t expect to love this book or really get into it. I am judgemental when it comes to James Patterson maybe because I consider him an airport author. It’s the people who never read but pick up one of his books to read on a plane. Because of this I ended up with TWO of his books to read for book clubs this month.
I listened to the audiobook and it was actually pretty haunting. The person who did all the voices did a really good job and made the story come alive. I knew every time I heard the music that we were moving into a Graham Session and it was so terrifying! The book moved very quickly, and I found myself really rooting for them to catch the killer, although knowing who the killer was in advance was a little wild! I’d never read a mystery book like that before.
The twist at the end was SO GOOD, I called a different twist and while it was close, it was off, which was nice because I’m usually right. Overall, this book changed my mind on James Patterson and makes me more open to reading stuff by him in the future.
