Overview

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.

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!

Best Book of James Patterson I started reading it today when it came out and finished it in just a couple of hours. Amazing story, very fast-paced, exciting and oh-my-gosh I'm lost for words, JUST READ IT!

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.

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.

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!

Patterson's recent books have seemed to have a "cookie cutter" approach and a real disappointment to fans of the "old" Patterson. However, this one hit a home run. David Ellis and James Patterson are definitely a match made in heaven. The dialogue was crisp, the plot taking twists and turns and suspenseful. Have recommended it to several "old" Patterson fans.

It has been several years since I have had time to sit down and read a good book. Since I recently retired I ordered Mr. Pattersons Invisible. I loved the book , its one that is difficult to put down. After I completed this book, I ordered the series of 13 books (the women's murder club).I received them four days ago and I just finished the first one. I have found the writer that keeps me interested.

This book restored my faith in James Patterson as I thought his books were getting a little old. There's lots of twists and turns that keep your interest the whole way through.

Kept me guessing right to the end!

Didn't expect much going into this book( not a great fan of Patterson on the whole), but this changed my mind. Story draws you in right from the opening. Chapters are a few pages each. They jump between the good guys and the mad man( and this person is really, really twisted). Great plot. Really enjoyed the ending. Can see this being made into a movie!

I love James Patterson, Im obsessed with Alex Cross and can never really get in to his other books but this one kept me on the edge of my seat. A very suspenseful and unpredictable read. LOVED IT.

NEVER GUESSED WHO IT WAS

My first J Patterson book.  Was very good up until 3/4 of the end.   There are a couple 'twists' towards the end.   The first one is very easy to figure out.  Then the last twist about that person comes up and you don't care about that person at that point in the book.  If the author could have figured out a way to weave it in earlier, maybe would have been better. For me,  the last 'twist' throws of the premise of the first part of the book and the build up of suspense.     Seems like I'm in the minority though so give it a read and see what you think.

OMG!!! OMG!!! OMG!!! I have read some awful books over the years. But this is by far, the WORST James Patterson book EVER. It was like Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys on speed. I realize that Emily was looking for her sister's killer. But really, how was such a low ranking, suspended FBI analyst able to convince the top level of the FBI to let her run this investigation her way. I do agree with the reviewed who said that it seemed like pages were missing. I might also be considering a Kindle. Why are there more pages in a "book" than in a Nook book of the same title? I am somewhat disappointed in BN lately. I know I am in the minority about this James Patterson book. Hopefully, Alex Cross, Michael Bennett & Jack Morgan in upcoming books.

As usual, James Patterson didn't disappoint. I can never put his books down.
