The book was repetitive and disjointed.
barney lobar
The book is written with all facts but reads as fiction, there being an interesting balance between creative prose and journalistic reporting.

I worked with Michelle, so this book really hit home for me. I was horrified to learn the details of her murder and the extent that Brandt hid his true nature from those who supposedly knew him the best.

That said, I found the book rather poorly written. Punctuation, grammar, and spelling errors abound. Sentences are awkwardly written and repeated several times, leading me to wonder if this was not the final draft, that some sections were copied and pasted prior to a final edit.

A chapter on a psychic had me rolling my eyes and in my opinion, was not necessary at all and diminishes the credibility of the book.

On the plus side, the authors clearly did their research and had intimate access to those most affected by these murders. I feel for Mary Lou Jones, who lost both a sister and a daughter. I would recommend this book with the caveat that it is not one of the best written books available. Still, if you want a scary bedtime story, this book will curl your hair.

This book is very different from your standard true crime read. It is dynamic and reads like a fiction book, though all the events and characters are real. When you start getting used to the way it reads, you are thrown into sections that are straight forward and fact based which is comforting to most true crime readers. Though i'm not used to reading true crime books like this, it kept my attention, and I can somewhat compare it to Phillip Carlo in it's style. The authors captured many dimensions of what could have been another one dimensional biography of a serial killer. This book's depth and creativity sets it apart from what it could have been. It's tone ranges from soft to brutal and dark before you could realize it. It's a great read that catches you off guard. It thrusts you into a vivid story, like a fiction book would do, and then snatches you back to the brutal reality of the book. Reminding you that it is at it's core a horrifying true story!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Yes, there is an awkward non-linear chronological format (just like Joshua Logan's Autobiography), as well as the other things mentioned in other reviews. I found that once I read and thought through the title before each chapter, it was an easier flow. When I first opened the book and saw all the photo-copied pages of a young girl's diary, I figured I would skip it. However, once I read through the book and when the diary came, I had a much different attitude and read every page. Not having ever seen such reports, I was intrigued with the actual autopsy and police reports included (not everybody's feeling obviously).

That being said, I read lots of True Crime books and when I finished reading page 49, I had to put the book down. I really was surprised at this reaction - I thought Helter Skelter and The Stranger Beside Me and A Need To Kill were graphic.

I think the book is excellent! A friend had pre-warned me to not read it before bed and I'm glad I heeded that advice. The story is in depth about a sick and twisted mind. That's right up my alley! Strongly recommend picking it up!

I had seen the Dr. Phil show with some of the individuals from the story and was eager to read the book. I paid the full $9.99 to only find out a few days later, the book on Kindle is now $1.99......To make matters worse, the book was awful. The editing job was awful. In a space of 3 pages, it was repeated at least 3 times that the killer was afraid to be alone and mentions his sister Angela and pleading with her not to leave him on the night of the original killing in Indiana. Did no one proof read the book. Because it wasn't just those three times that sentence was repeated. I'm not sure what the detailed autopsy report did to move along the story. I've never given any type of book review before because I didn't want to be harsh on the authors, but seriously this one should only be purchased if it drops below the $1.99 price to free purchase.

"Invisible Criminal: The Monster Behind the Mask" - Insightful and compelling, very powerful, factual and informative. A timeline of crimes committed by this horrible monster. While for me, as a personal friend of this monsters final victim Michelle Lynn Jones, it was an emotional read, but it's factual, well written, non offensive and very respectful to the victims and their families and friends involved.

Diana Montane and Sean Robbins truly did their research and wrote "Invisible Killer: The Monster Behind the Mask" in a manner that gave his victims a final voice. They exposed the true demonic nature of this monstrous man who lived among many of us for so long; written not only honoring his victims, but the victims of so many like his.

THANK YOU DIANA MONTANE AND SEAN ROBBINS!!! THANK YOU for bringing the issue to light, thank you for opening up all of our eyes to the fact that people just like Charlie Brandt do live next door to many of us, do walk and live among us, so many never caught, but always killing, even with their eyes.

Thank you for shedding light on "The mission of the Michelle Lynn Jones Foundation" a foundation working to help promote personal safety by raising public awareness about invisible criminals in our communities through public education and advocacy, enhanced education for health care professionals and law enforcement, and enabling law enforcement to conduct more comprehensive criminal investigations, as needed. mlj-foundation (dot) org.
