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 believe book would be great in print and auduio. By it being in audio you can truly visualize a movie unfolding.
The surprise ending.
The mere description of the killers personality.
It made me want to listen all the time.
Read or listen for self you like detective stories.
One of his best. The narration and performance was excellent and had a hard time taking off my headset. The ending superb. Can't wait for his next one!
up at the top
It got me questioning what I was hearing. Why the bad guy was doing this or that. Is what the FBI knows right or planted to make them think it is.
I almost didn't notice that there was a second person .... That's how much I got into the story. It did help having two different people reading it. I can't say more ....
Just what the title is.
Even though I figured it out who the killer was before the story told me I still liked the story. I don't normally like books that I can figure out before the end but not this one.
There is an over reliance on internal thought processes of the main character, which become very annoying over time given the way they are read by the actor. James Patterson's books have never been known to be intellectual in nature, but this one takes the cake for oversimplification. Sure, there are some twists and turns at the end of the book, but the buildup to it isn't worth the wait. The way the villain is read also gets pretty annoying, and the attempt to make her menacing falls way short.
Less unimportant internal dialogue of main character; Attempting to create a side "love story" that tries too hard to make listeners actually care about the main characters; Weak monologues by villain there were intended to give off a creepy personae; Waiting until the last minute to reveal the "plot twist," which just didn't work in a story this superficial.
January LaVoy attempted to bring life to the main character, but she quickly became annoying due to her interpretation of the emotional monologues and dialogues. The "desperation" came across as whiney. Also, too much reliance on an almost slapstick approach to Patterson's attempts to be witty, which was also annoying after the 100th time.
The extended internal dialogue of the main character - not necessary in a story this superficial. The focus should be on catching this villain, not all the side stories.
If the protagonist had been more likeable!
The ending was too sappy & unbelievable.
The scene where rude, know-it-all Emme stormed the house although Books, her superior and the most experienced agent, ordered her not too.
This was a good story, gone bad. I like strong women characters, but this person was too much! She was so annoying, I found it was painful to keep listening to her heroics. I expected her to put on a cape and fly, and I had no sympathy for the main character. I found her so annoying, I hoped she died at the end!
I was not prepared to hear, in such detail, about human torture. The story was interesting and I usually like James Patterson books so didn't hesitate to buy this. It's just way too graphic with the descriptions of horror the killer performs on the victims, such gore and in such depth, it made me nauseous to listen so skipped to the end of the last chapter (there is a preview of another book at the end but I didn't listen to it) just to put a period on the story. Yikes.
The last paragraph. I'm not trying to be funny, it really was my favorite.
I do...I do....I do....I do love the characters -Emmy and Booker, I do love the suspense, I so do love the story twists and I so held my breath at the final chapters...and you might say "I do" love too!
Tell us about yourself! I practice criminal law, a member of the Arizona State Bar, love to read like everyone who loves this site.
This is crime/thriller writing at its best. Won't repeat what others have said better. I've found Patterson disappointing last few years. NOT THIS TIME. The Master is back.
The book had a good plot and the plot twist was interesting. I was not impressed with the voice talent. January LaVoy could have done different voices better and Kevin Collins seemed way to "theatre". He's playing a serial killer but he sounded more like a contrived fake laughable villian.
Graham...couldn't relate to his character with the voice chosen. Seemed to contrived.
January LaVoy, maybe...Kevin Collins, probably not.
The story was riveting and kept me guessing
Yes, but I want a good ending next time
Special Agent Bookman was great!
I was really pissed at the end.
The whole point of fiction is to suspend the readers disbelief. This was an awesome story and flowed nicely until the sappy moments at the end. Then it was jarring and I was totally aware of the story. Endings do not have to be happy but they should always be realistic and plausible.
