Publisher's Summary

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.

Totally WARPED Antagonist! Loved It...

I realize there are already quite a few reviews and this will probably be at the bottom but for anyone who makes it down here, for what it's worth, this is my opinion!
I thought this book was absolutely fabulous. The protagonist, Emmy Dockery's twin sister dies in a fire. Police call it a horrible accident. Emmy calls it a homicide. She's an analyst with the FBI. It take her over a year to convince others at the FBI that they have a serial killer traveling the country.
The serial killer is a really twisted character. This person mercilessly tortures the victims and then sets an "accidental" fire to cover up what was done to them. There is obviously some forensic knowledge. The killer is also keeping a diary of sorts for the police.
I really liked the way the perspective in this book went back and forth between Emmy and the killer. For Emmy the dialogue sounded normal. For the killer the self dialogue was really warped and kind of creepy (but in a good way for a work of fiction). If this were a real person I'd be putting bars on my windows!
The co-narrating with January LaVoy and Kevin Collins was excellent.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Background sounds are annoying

The music when the subject speaks is so annoying that it is almost not worth it to listen to this amazing story.

Does a serial killer exist if no one knows?

This audiobook is Narated by January LaVoy and Kevin Collins. This book is a true suspense thriller. The narrative  between the serial killer and the FBI tells parallel stories that keep you on the edge of your listening seat. LaVoy and Collins crest unique voices for each character and you can feel the tension as they present the written word.

As much as I like James Patterson's series I like his stand alone books as well as any other thrillers. As a former Research Analyst (RA) I love the inclusion of the data collection and evaluation of clues by the RA's. Sorting through the haystack to find the needle takes a special skill and patience.

This is a story about a killer who doesn't exist, crimes that don't link, victims with no connection, in essence it is about the invisible. One victims sister is an RA for the FBI. As a twin she knows her sister was murdered. There seems to be no evidence so the hunt begins with a single RA looking for clues.

The twists and turns throughout this book keep the listener guessing until the final chapter. This is a quick listen worth every second. 

I purchased this book for my own pleasure and for review. It was a great choice.

RIVETING

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.

To much violence / torture for me

The story line is great, the descriptive violence was too horrific for me to listen to.

Entertaining but poor character development

The book is an easy listen however the central female character comes across as immature and childish making it difficult to connect with her. If you focus on that, she becomes annoying so I recommend listening to this just as a filler book and if it happens to be on sale. I'm a JP fan but this one didn't measure up to me.

Excellent as always

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!

O. M. G.

I don't know if I've read a James Patterson novel recently; I like David Ellis. So this story I wanted to listen to. Two narrators, I like that, I've had that before. This one going on concurrently. The "bad guy" was very creepy, Kevin Collins did an excellent job. So excellent, I wondered if I could get through the rest of the book without listening to the bad guy chapters! The evil was a little too sick to what I'm used to. I started to cringe before the next chapter started in case it was the bad guy's chapter. HOWEVER, if you are as sensitive as I am, don't give in - you really need to listen to both sides of the story. I couldn't stop listening, this is a hold your breath, heart stopping, brilliantly crafted story. Genius bad guy, genius good guys. Makes me want to be a research analyst for the F.B.I.

Don't bother

This plot was unbelievable. The main character was acting stupid most of the time. The story dragged.
