Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The idea of serial killers living among us is chilling, yet, in this riveting and well-documented account, Diana Montane and Sean Robbins show us how possible it is and force us to reexamine just how well we know our neighbors and friends. — Lisa Pulitzer, best-selling author of Imperfect Justice, Portrait of a Monster, and Banished.

Charlie Brandt walked among us. He had friends, family and a lust for brutal murder. Diana Montane and Sean Robbins dismantle the carefully constructed facade concealing a sadistic killer in this compelling read. Invisible Killer - you'll never look at your friends the same way again. — Diane Fanning, author of bestseller, Mommy's Little Girl

There is nothing more terrifying than considering that a friendly neighbor is in fact a bloodthirsty serial killer. After reading the dogged journalism undertaken by Diana Montane and Sean Robbins about a man who killed dozens of people - starting with his own pregnant mother - in — Michele McPhee, New York Times Best-Selling author of A Date With Death.

Exemplary true crime investigative journalism! Insightful and compelling, this book is required reading for anyone fascinated by the — Burl Barer, Edgar Award winning author of Body Count, Murder in the Family, Head Shot and other true crime best-sellers.

Diana Montane is an expert at not only finding the key but putting the puzzle together. Uncovering the ugly, naked truth about Brandt was a complex task. In Invisible Killer, Diana and her co-writer, Sean Robbins, were tireless in their pursuit to understand a man that almost no one did. Diana and Sean have masterfully succeeded in putting Brandt, his life, and crimes into context so we get a clear picture of that secret life. — Mark Safarik, former FBI Supervisory Agent and host of the televison show, Killer Instinct

    Reviewed by Carrie-Jane White for Readers' Favorite

    Invisible Killer, The Monster Behind the Mask is the story of how one serial killer avoided discovery until it was too late to seek justice. It is about just how manipulative and cunning he was in order to achieve his goal. There should be no illusions about how dangerous this man 
    was, but little could be done to save his victims. In hindsight, the signs of impending doom were there, but would the average layman or even the authors, Diana Montane and Sean Robbins, have been able to recognise them for what they were? I think that it would have been difficult. Many acts of murder do not stick in the public's mind, so awareness of lives less fortunate than our own are so very important and should be aired. 

    Diana Montane and Sean Robbins have put a lot of work into a story of, what is essentially, horrific and life-changing tragedies. The research into the explicit details of the crimes, and the effect it has had on those left behind, must have taken a lot of strength and tenacity to carry out. I felt, however, that there was a lot of jumping around in the narration. It did make it difficult to keep up with who was who and what relation they were to the killer and those he knew. The images of the killer and the people involved in his life further into the book, did help, though, to bring things more into perspective. It is a moderately paced book, which kept me on my toes, and I particularly liked how the pace slowed down and became very in-depth at key moments. Overall, I found Invisible Killer, The Monster Behind the Mask a very interesting and moving tale.

    Subpar

    The story of Charlie Brandt is a very intriguing one. Unfortunately this book revealed no new information about him or his crimes. Repetitive, boring, choppy, unedited and full of typos made it impossible to get into.

    I have been reading true crime books for many years, this would have to be the WORST book I have ever read.
    The author was all over the place, he wrote more about 1 victim, the homeless women whom MAY have been a victim, I believe the wife and aunty were 
    really what the immediate story should have been about and also the early crimes committed.
    To the authors, Give up the writting and try another career path.

    Good info on Charlie Brandt

    I read the negative reviews but got the book anyway because I really wanted to know more about the case. The book, itself, could use an editing but it's still a good book and it did have the info that I'd been wanting. It's well worth looking over the few minor glitches.

    One warning, though, this will not give you some magick info that will allow you to put Charlie Brandt in some neat category at all. You *will* see true evil.

    Officially, most poorly written book I have ever read

    I am shocked at the shoddy quality of this book. Not only are their tons of grammatical errors, it is rife with disorganization and repetitions of facts. I truly think my 8th grade son could organize a book more effectively. Where was the editor??????
