That said, each co-authored novel should best be reviewed on it's own merits with little or no regard for Patterson's previous work. In this case I found the story and characters to be compelling and worth the ride, albeit a bit over the top when it comes to plot twists. My recommendation is to read it and enjoy it but only if your willingness to suspend your disbelief is nearly unlimited and you don't feel the need to exercise much critical judgement or common sense. But, hey it's just a novel so why get too picky, right?
my opinion, the main character, Emmy, was never really developed. Neither was her relationship was Books. It's as if Patterson threw a vague past relationship in there to fill space, certainly not to engage the reader. As the story progressed, I I feel the part of Graham was much better written than the detective side of the story. (Sad when you are pulling for the killer.), And, don't get me started on ending. No spoiler alert here because there isn't much to spoil. It is as if Mr. Patterson had to rush off to dinner so he slapped some crap down and called the story "done". I know James Patterson's novels are no great works of fiction, but I would think, he expected more from himself and his readers. This wasn't even what I would call a good "summer read" or a "beach book". I like a book that makes me feel even a slight bit different when I'm finished. One that makes me "think". Invisible just made me think I had wasted my time and money.
Surrounding herself with newspaper clippings on the walls of her bedroom and night after night suffering through endless nightmares of a raging all-consuming fire, she dredges on day after day seeking to find that one vital clue to make the world believe her.
She of course comes off as so nuts that not even her ex-boyfriend, FA Harrison 'Books' Bookman will believe her crazy theory that hundreds of kidnappings, rapes and murders are somehow all connected. That all comes to a earth-shattering " now you believe me" moment when Emma finds the one piece of evidence not even Books can ignore. As more and more murders are reported each passing day with no motives, no murder weapons in sight and zero suspects Emma's chances of proving the unthinkable seem bleaker with each murder, and worst of all, she might just die trying.
I loved this book, it had me guessing at each and every turn, and best of all it was one of those books that once you start, putting it away for later is simply just not possible. The author sucks you in to the mystery and there is no way you can leave this absolutely thrill ride of a book for even a second!
There was many twists and turns in this book, but not the kind that would have you thinking " I saw that coming!" and then silently keeping the " I so did not see it, but I want to look smart " comments to yourself, no this author hits you with the unexpected when you least expect it and completely threw me for a loop each and every time.Read more ›

In typical Patterson fashion he keeps you hooked. Just when you think you have it figured out he hits you with a twist!Published 13 days ago by teek
The pace of the book was its best feature. The plot concept was good, but it kept unraveling as it developed. Some very predictable ending points. Read morePublished 13 days ago by Amazon Customer
