Publisher's Summary

“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 best-selling author) 

The number-one New York Times best-selling 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.

Owen Pick’s life is falling apart. In his 30s 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. 

Across the street from Owen lives the Fours family, headed by mom Cate, a physiotherapist, and dad Roan, a child psychologist. But the Fours family have a bad feeling about their neighbor Owen. He’s a bit creepy and their teenaged daughter swears he followed her home from the train station one night. 

Meanwhile, young Saffyre Maddox spent three years as a patient of Roan Fours. Feeling abandoned when their therapy ends, she searches for other ways to maintain her connection with him, following him in the shadows and learning more than she wanted to know about Roan and his family. Then, on Valentine’s night, Saffyre Maddox disappears - and the last person to see her alive is Owen Pick. 

With evocative, vivid, and unputdownable prose and plenty of disturbing twists and turns, Jewell’s latest thriller is another “haunting, atmospheric, stay-up-way-too-late read” (Megan Miranda, New York Times best-selling author).

Hate it ended!! Lisa Jewell, you did it again!!!!

This book was GREAT!! My 2nd book from Lisa Jewell, first being Then She Was Gone (Which I loved) but I have to say Invisible Girl DID NOT DISAPPOINT!! Actually I liked this one more! I preordered title and anxiously waited...as soon as it was available I downloaded and was hooked from the start. I finished it in a day and a half. I listened EVERY chance I could on the way to work, at work when my job tasks confined me to my computer, on the way home from work, even connecting to speaker while showering before bed. That is how engrossed I was with OMAGAH!!!! what is going to happen next, MANY times I "thought" I had it figured out but continuing to listen I would think...maybe not.... I LOVED ALL of their stories, their lives, SO DIFFERENT but again SO the SAME!! ALL I can say is GET THE BOOK !!! I promise you, it will NOT leave you disappointed!! Narration was SUPERB and easy to follow!! 5 STARS!!!

Really Enjoyed

I really enjoyed this book. It had started out slow but described the characters well, it got more and more interesting as the book went on. I loved how there were three different readers, it made it easier to understand and see the different character’s stories. I would recommend trigger warnings throughout the book, since one character does have a dark past. Overall it all kept me interested and was greatly written, and the ending tied together really well. All of the readers were amazing.

Disappointing....dull and boring

It pains me to write a bad review on a Lisa Jewell book as I love this author and have read ALL her books. I was so exited about this book and even pre orderd it! Lisa Jewell is usually a master of creating rich and intertwined characters, unfortunately not this time! This book was all over the place, fragmented, hard to believe and shallow characters with no development throughout the book. Frankly I was bored and disappointed and know Lisa Jewell can do much better.

Lisa Jewell is a writing Godess

I was lucky enough to grab this book the first day that it was released in the U.S. Like previous reviewers I could not put it down and listened almost non-stop. This story does not disappoint. The characters jump off the page and I found their inner monologues extremely relatable. I am a huge fan of Lisa Jewell as well as Ruth Ware. I primarily read (and listen) to English authors in the psychological thriller genres. Invisible Girl, by Lisa Jewell is at the very top of my favorites list now.

Outstanding. One of her best.

I was so prepared to be disappointed because my expectations were extremely high. I have read nearly all of her books and find that they are often at either one extreme or the other. I am either blown away and have never loved a book so much, or I am so let down that I can’t take it. I have even returned certain of her books like “Thirtynothing” because I found it to be unbearable to listen to. This book is absolutely exceptional. This is LJ at her very best. Very well developed characters, a strong sense of place, people that are interesting and whose lives one would want to read about. It’s also a phenomenal mystery. She’s done it again. This book is honestly sheer perfection. I wouldn’t change a single thing. Well worth your time and a credit. This woman truly has a gift I just wish that she were a bit more consistent. This is a fantastic and entertaining read. I wish it would have been a little longer. The performers are outstanding, all of them.

Great Listen

This was a very intriguing book from beginning to end. Not predictable at all and very thoughtful. I think Jewel has grown as a writer since this book is light years ahead of one I read before. Thanks for a very interesting story.

Keeps you guessing

How many suspicious people can there be in a novel-plenty as it turns out. This had me guessing all the way through. There are suspicions, surprises and a twist at the end. Loved this one. I would definitely recommend it. For people using Audible, I found the narrator for Sapphire difficult to understand at times.
