Description

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

I absolutely loved Invisible Girl—Lisa Jewell has a way of combining furiously twisty, utterly gripping plots with wonderfully rich characterization—she has such compassion for her characters, and we feel we know them utterly… A triumph!” —Lucy Foley, New York Times bestselling author

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone returns with an intricate thriller about a young woman’s disappearance and a group of strangers whose lives intersect in its wake.

Young Saffyre Maddox spent three years under the care of renowned child psychologist Roan Fours. When Dr. Fours decides their sessions should end, Saffyre feels abandoned. She begins looking for ways to connect with him, from waiting outside his office to walking through his neighborhood late at night. She soon learns more than she ever wanted to about Roan and his deceptively perfect family life. On a chilly Valentine’s night, Saffyre will disappear, taking any secrets she has learned with her.

Owen Pick’s life is falling apart. In his thirties and living in his aunt’s spare bedroom, he has just been suspended from his job as a teacher after accusations of sexual misconduct—accusations he strongly denies. Searching for professional advice online, he is inadvertently sucked into the dark world of incel forums, where he meets a charismatic and mysterious figure.

Owen lives across the street from the Fours family. The Fours have a bad feeling about their neighbor; Owen is a bit creepy and suspect and their teenaged daughter swears he followed her home from the train station one night. Could Owen be responsible? What happened to the beautiful missing Saffyre, and does her disappearance truly connect them all?

Evocative, vivid, and unputdownable, Lisa Jewell’s latest thriller is another “haunting, atmospheric, stay-up-way-too-late read” (Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author).

Reviews

  • Solid Story, Slow Start

    While I did read this in a few days it had a very slow start. The book centers on 3 seemingly unrelated characters. The slow burn to see how those characters are linked could have been shortened entirely. Once it picks up the book moves very fast then it is all summarized in a few pages. I felt more energy could have been spent there, as the story feels a bit incomplete. Overall, it was a good read though.
  • I could not put this book down! Captivated up until the end!

    Excellent read! This story is just as raw and emotionally riveting as Jewells’ other reads. I thought the ending was a bit cheesy despite its success tying up the loose ends. This is my third Lisa Jewel book. I liked this one more than The Family Upstairs but not as much as Then She was Gone.
  • Disappointing

    I typically like Lisa Jewell’s books but this one was a short hitter. I kept waiting for something to happen, for the book to take off. Disappointed!
  • Little drawn out

    In the beginning I had to force myself to pick the book up and keep reading. Not till the middle of the book did it get where I couldn’t put it down. Was pretty good, but too drawn out.
