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?

Meet the Author

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

Biography

James Patterson had been working as a very successful advertising copywriter when he decided to put his Masters degree in English to a somewhat different use. Inspired by bestselling hair-raising thrillers like The Day of the Jackal and The Exorcist, Patterson went to work on his first novel. Published in 1976, The Thomas Berryman Number established him as a writer of tightly constructed mysteries that move forward with the velocity of a bullet. For his startling debut, Patterson was awarded the prestigious Edgar Award for Best First Mystery Novel—an auspicious beginning to one of the most successful careers in publishing.

A string of gripping standalone mysteries followed, but it was the 1992 release of Along Came a Spider that elevated Patterson to superstar status. Introducing Alex Cross, a brilliant black police detective/forensic psychologist, the novel was the first installment in a series of bestselling thrillers that has proved to be a cash cow for the author and his publisher.

Examining Patterson's track record, it's obvious that he believes one good series deserves another…maybe even a third! In 2001, he debuted the Women's Murder Club with 1st to Die, a fast-paced thriller featuring four female crime fighters living in San Francisco—a homicide detective, a medical examiner, an assistant D.A., and a cub reporter. The successful series has continued with other numerically titled installments. Then, spinning off a set of characters from a previous novel (1998's When the Wind Blows), in 2005 he published Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. Featuring a "flock" of genetically engineered flying children, the novel was a huge hit, especially with teen readers, and spawned a series of vastly popular fantasy adventures.

In addition to continuing his bestselling literary franchises, Patterson has also found time to co-author thrillers with other writers—including Peter de Jonge, Andrew Gross, Maxine Paetro, and Howard Roughan—and has even ventured into romance (Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, Sam's Letters to Jennifer) and children's literature (santaKid). Writing at an astonishing pace, this prolific author has turned himself into a one-man publishing juggernaut, fulfilling his clearly stated ambition to become "the king of the page-turners."

Good To Know

Patterson's Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas was inspired by a diary his wife kept that tracked the development of their toddler son.

Two of Patterson's Alex Cross mysteries (Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls) have been turned into films starring Morgan Freeman; in 2007, a weekly television series premiered, based on the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels.

    Return to Patterson!

    I had almost given up on any Patterson book except the Cross series. Even began to get a little concerned with that one until the last two returned to the unusual Patterson attention grabbing format. The remainder of his books, characters etc. just seemed to fizzle as the pages turned. I decided, after seeing a tv commercial for this book, that I would give Jimmy one final chance to grab my money and my following. I am certainly glad I gave in! Invisible is without a doubt one of the best drama, suspense novels I've read in quite awhile. I read perhaps six novels a month, mostly major name authors, crime, suspense, mystery, etc.and I enjoy being held in suspense until the last minute. But not only did Invisible hide conclusions until the last few pages, it actually showed the answers as you turned page after final page drawing conclusions you realized you should have made chapters prior if you hadn't been looking at the wrong new character! Hats off James! Terrific job...Again!

    Wow, James Patterson is Back!!

    Finally a James Patterson book that was like him when he first started writing. I don't know if it was the help of David Ellis but it was a good fast pace & dark book. I had physically make myself put the book down so I didn't finish it in one day. Such a good book. And I am definitely considering looking at David Ellis and his books as well.

    It was such a great story even the characters had more depth in them.

    I would recommend this book...

    Finally an unpredictable ending!!! This book was a fast read with lots of twists and turns. The only down side was the annoying character- Emmy; without giving too much away she was more trouble than she was worth! Great story, it is nice to see something refreshing from JP.

    WOW¿Patterson is Back!

    I have to say I am thrilled Patterson is back to his old style. I just about gave up on him. Invisible is truly a must read…. I couldn't function until I finished the book. I am so happy I read the reviews on this book and decided to give Patterson another try. I won't give anything away but I thought the characters were well developed and
    the story was truly gripping. I look forward to his next book!

    It really is invisible

    I bought this book for my Nook and it is indeed invisible. Only the title page shows up on my Nook. I have contacted B & N and they had me turn off my Nook, turn it back on, turn it off, turn it back on over and over and still nothing there to read. They finally said there was something wrong and I'll have to wait 2-4 weeks for the problem with the book to show up. I preordered this book, so I should have been able to read it on June 23 but here it is July 29, 2014 and I still can't read it!
