Accusing him, holding him responsible for Saffyre's disappearance ...
INVISIBLE GIRL: an engrossing, twisty story of how we look in the wrong places for bad people while the real predators walk among us in plain sight.
An up-all-night gripping story with characters who feel as real as you and me. Lisa Jewell is the kind of writer you read twice – once as a breathless reader, to see how the story unfolds, and then again to try to work out how she makes it look so easy.
I am always reminded of Ruth Rendell at her very best when I read Lisa Jewell. Not only is her plotting masterful, Lisa has the rare ability to make you care - passionately - about all her characters, whether they are important or minor, instantly appealing or apparently monstrous. Invisible Girl is quite brilliant in every way.
Dark, gripping, emotionally intense. My heart hurt from being squeezed so tight.
A breathtakingly brilliant novel by an author at the absolute top of her game.
Compelling and surprisingly moving - Lisa Jewell never lets you down.
