A calculating killer who calls himself The Teacher is taking on New York City, killing the powerful and the arrogant. His message is clear: remember your manners or suffer the consequences! For some, it seems that the rich are finally getting what they deserve. For New York's elite, it is a call to terror.

Only one man can tackle such a high-profile case: Detective Mike Bennett. The pressure is enough for anyone, but Mike also has to care for his ten children-all of whom have come down with virulent flu at once!

Discovering a secret pattern in The Teacher's lessons, Detective Bennett realizes he has just hours to save New York from the greatest disaster in its history.

Number Seven Ocean Drive is a gorgeous, multimillion-dollar beachfront estate in the Hamptons, where money and privilege know no bounds. But its beautiful, gothic exterior hides a horrific past: It was the scene of a series of depraved killings that have never been solved. Neglected, empty, and rumored to be cursed, it's known as the Murder House, and locals keep their distance.

I was set up, position, and the basket was made. James Patterson gave you what thought was everyone's background but you had parts them missing. As story reveals it self everyone is a suspect.
As police officers sometimes your instinct is all you have. How can one person be framed from childhood to adulthood?
This books delivers with murders, suspense and a surprise ending. It makes you doubt who the killer really is after think you know.

This last book was more intriguing than the first two. He best for last.
I could visualize the characters and the cities Tracy did her manhunt.
I could imagine losing a child I thought was murder. A mother would go to any length in lower to see justice was done.
Great ending.

Would you consider the audio edition of Invisible to be better than the print version?

I believe book would be great in print and auduio. By it being in audio you can truly visualize a movie unfolding.

What did you like best about this story?

The surprise ending.

What does January LaVoy and Kevin Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The mere description of the killers personality.

It made me want to listen all the time.

Any additional comments?

Read or listen for self you like detective stories.
