3.0 out of 5 starsI tried...
Reviewed in the United States on June 18, 2019
I really wanted to like this book, but Patterson got way up on his SJW soapbox and the liberal-leaning lectures left me ambivalent at best, more irritated than anything else. He spends an inordinate amount of time whining about the homeless and too little time on the villains. Just OK.
I loved Invisible which I just happened to read a few days before Unsolved was released. It was hard for me to get started reading it. I was confused regarding who was who. Who was telling the story in 1st person? Who was the bad guy telling what he did. Then as I got further into it I did get that straightened out, but it seemed to be so much like the first book that l felt disappointed. However, it did get much better and more like I expected it to be. I couldn't put it down. I expected the outcome to be surprising and it certainly was. I don't know if I missed some important facts or what, but I feel as though I should go back and find out what happened to the people I suspected were the bad guys. That is why I didn't give it 5 stars as I usually do with James Patterson books.
I had a hard time putting this book down to do other things. Everytime I thought that I figured out who the killer was, I was wrong. I love to guess and love to be fooled about who it is. The ending was a surprise on several counts. Another winner by Mr. Patterson. I wish his Kindles weren't so expensive because I have to let so many books of his go by because of the cost. I'm hoping we hear more about Emmy and Books in the future.
Grabbed me right from the start ! Two serial killer investigations at the same time. When one serial killer starts infringing on the other's turf/style, I couldn't wait to see if they would meet up. A couple of twists I didn't see coming. David Ellis is a great writer. I've start to read his legal series (on his own) and its awesome.
It took a while to recall the first invisible story, it also took a time to get this one going. A solid story with good twists and characters some of the filler was not required but all in all a good read
Very much enjoyed this book, well written, decent plot, many twists. The only let down for me was that the motive, history of the actual murder wasn't elaborated a bit more on. A few lose ends to be tied. Good and exciting read.
