Summary

A chilling and shocking follow-up to Sunday Times bestseller Invisible by James Patterson.

FBI researcher, Emma Dockery is back with a vengeance. Obsessed with finding a link between a string of deaths across several different states, she is convinced that there’s a pattern. And where there’s a pattern, there’s a serial killer to put a stop to. When detectives working on some of the cases start turning up dead, Emma knows that she’s onto something. These deaths are murders, and she’s going to be the one to prove it.

The closer she gets to finding the killer, the more Emma feels like she’s being watched. Is she setting a trap for this depraved killer? Or with every step she takes, is she falling further into his web, with the death count rising, Emma must act fast to catch this killer, before she becomes the next name on the hit list. – from the blurb

Unsolved (Invisible, #2)

My Thoughts

I didn’t read Invisible 1, but it’s not necessary to read it before Unsolved. In fact, I didn’t realise this was a second book in a series until after I’d finished it. I have enjoyed the James Patterson collaborations that I’ve read so far, and this novel was no different. A fast paced, detective mystery with a great story line and a few twists along the way.

Of course, as with most James Patterson books, it’s obviously written to a formula which is quite cliche – the FBI agent who goes against protocol, but because she has great results she gets away with it.

 I enjoyed it this novel. It was a quick read with an interesting plot and unexpected twists.However, there is one thing that I didn’t like about this book and that was the ending. It just didn’t feel right to me, and left me disappointed at the end.

Star Rating: 3.5 star
