Then, an analyst for the FBI lost her twin and did not believe it was an accident. Due to personal problems had time to research similar deaths, and found a pattern indicating a a mysterious death of the twin sister of an FBI analyst led to the belief there was a serial killer.
Many obstacles later the killer was found.
A great read with interesting characters.
Great reading and good characters were needed to reach the end.
Emmy Dockery is a research analyst for the FBI. However, right now she is on leave as her sister was killed in an “accidental” fire. From the beginning, Emmy is sure her twin sister was murdered; but she can’t prove it yet. She does what she does best- research. Her research uncovers a possible serial killer who somehow manages to kill people in a fire and yet it doesn’t look like anything but an accident. That is until Emmy puts the clues together. She is unable to get permission from her superior, Mr. Dickinson, to chase after this madman. He doesn’t even think he exists. So, she decides to go another way- her ex-fiancé Harrison Bookman, Books as he is known.
Books was, as far as Emmy was concerned, the best FBI agent available. So what if he is mad at her for breaking their engagement? She does convince him to take her data and go to his superior who is above Dickinson. He is given a small task force and a small amount of time to see if Emmy’s information leads anywhere. Suddenly, they are on the trail of a serial killer.
Will they find the killer? Who will he target next? How many people will be killed before he either stops his rampage or they find him? Will Emmy ever avenge Marta’s death?
Not as much dialogue as in the Cross series. Still the story moves reader forward. Good pace.
POV from female protagonist, who I don't like. Don't care if she is the primary protagonist in the story.
* she seems to think only of herself @ the expense of others
* inconsiderate of others & their safety
* self-centered narrow focus, often not seeing the bigger picture
* stubborn: she's right, won't consider options or others views
Best put by Books (primary protagonist) "Same old Emmy, doing whatever you want, whenever you want, however you want." "You think you ca step on whomever you please and everyone has to just sit there and take it..." "... you figured you could walk all over me and do whatever you wanted, ..." "You wanted someone you could manipulate... you knew you could do that to me." In this chapter (99) Book has had it with Emma and so have I. Ellis' character developed of Emmy has its effect on readers. That's good writing.
Chapt. 96- Liked the play on words: "...thunderous footfalls..." to "Footsteps pounding..."
Chapt. 98- Liked: "Her eyes, mere slits through purple-black bruising..." and in this chapter, last sentence the name of the book, Invisible is interjected: "He said he's invisible." Sometimes Patterson works this in his Prologue or first few chapters.
Chapt. 102- I'm certain I've figured out who our antagonist is. Ellis lays it out and his reader is cringing knowing the access this killer will have to Emmy and Mary Laney, who is in FBI protective custody.
The twists start coming around chapter 106 and OMG ... you don't see any of these coming. In chapt. 111 the final twist comes at the end of this chapter -- the one that discombobulates your mind.
Ellis does an excellent keeping his readers in suspense to the end of the story. Not that you couldn't figure out the ending, but he doesn't make it easy. And terrifies you with the last sentence in chapt. 112.
Good book. Worthy of you time and writers to study his style.
Not the typical Patterson book at all... I was grabbed by chapter 2 and never let go! One day read....if your dedicated to getting this book done, or chapter by chapter in between..whatever works...read it! You will never see the end coming!
