Editorial Reviews

Editors Select, June 2014 - In typical James Patterson fashion, Invisible was suspenseful, fast-paced, and filled with twists and turns. The story follows Emmy Dockery, a brash and outspoken FBI analyst who is convinced that a string of supposedly accidental deaths is actually the work of one unknown serial killer. Dismissed by both her family and the Bureau, Emmy must find the link between these closed cases before more lives are claimed. Patterson and Ellis did a spectacular job with both character development and plotline. There was never a dull moment as the story built up to its twisted and surprising climax. I couldn’t put this book down – and with January LaVoy as the female narrator, I can’t wait to revisit this story in audio. –Laura, Audible Editor

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

sensational book from the beginning to the end.

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.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me want to listen all the time.

Any additional comments?

Read or listen for self you like detective stories.

WHOA - Didn't see that coming

Any additional comments?

I was POSITIVE I had the ending figured out and even then still couldn't stop listening. I've already recommended the book to every book reading friend I have that like this genre.<br/><br/>AND I was WRONG about the bad guy. I've already had to re-read the last chapter and making plans to listen to the entire book again. The narrator was excellent and the story line spot on. I'll certainly look for more books by Ellis and kudos to Patterson to find and coauthor with some good artists

I enjoyed this book.

Where does Invisible rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

up at the top

What did you like best about this story?

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.

Which character – as performed by January LaVoy and Kevin Collins – was your favorite?

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 ....

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Just what the title is.

Any additional comments?

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.

A Great Stand Alone Book!

I finished this book in two sittings. Typical Patterson... it flowed along fairly quickly. It was great to meet new characters and not be held down by a series. If you do not know Patterson's other series, and I'm not familiar with all, this is a great introduction to his writings.
