The book revolves around a 17 year old girl, Saffyre Maddox, that has been in therapy for years - haunting by her past. She lives with her Uncle Aaron who tries to save her and then finds her missing. The reader sympathizes with a teacher, Owen Pick, in the neighborhood that gets arrested for being a suspect of killing this young girl. It's not difficult for the reader to figure out the plot. While this book had some suspense, I enjoyed the author's other book, "The Family Upstairs" much more. ( )

The Fours family . . . child psychologist Roan, physiotherapist Cate, daughter Georgia, and son Josh . . . are temporarily settled in Hampstead while their land subsidence-damaged home in Kilburn is being repaired. They tend to avoid their across-the-street neighbor whom they find to be slightly creepy.

Meanwhile, allegations of sexual misconduct with students get Owen Pick suspended from his private school geography teacher position. Owen, naturally, vehemently denies the accusations but there are blanks in his memory . . . .

At the same time, Saffyre Maddox, who spent three years as one of Roan’s patients, feels abandoned when her therapy sessions come to an end and tries to remain connected to Roan by stealthily following him . . . allowing her to learn much more about the man than she’d ever wanted to know.

And then, amid a series of sexual attacks on women in the area, Saffyre vanishes.

Divided into three sections . . . Before, After, Now . . . and told alternately by Saffyre, Cate, and Owen, this narrative reveals family secrets as it focuses on behaviors related to prejudice and relationships. The characters are well-defined, but many are unlikable and/or repulsive. The story is dark; the tension palpable. Readers may not agree with all of the choices made by the characters, but they are in keeping with the parameters of the unfolding story that is less “thriller” and more “mystery.”

Surprising revelations take the narrative in unexpected directions, but with themes relating to domestic relationships, stalking, and abuse, the primary focus of the story is the mystery of what actually happened to Saffyre. With so many of the characters in essentially the same place, any of them could be the person responsible for the young woman’s disappearance.

Astute readers are sure to identify the true culprit before the reveal late in the telling of the tale, but the denouement is sure to satisfy.

Recommended. ( )

Whoever wrote the synopsis did NOT ❌ write it to make this book sound as good as it is. So don’t let it deter you from reading another fantastic book by ( )

I've listened to several Lisa Jewell audiobooks while walking which I really enjoy. The storyline twists and turns and the characters are multidimensional. Invisible Girl features a teenager named Sapphire who goes missing. Owen Pick, a quiet man in his 30s who has just been let go from his job due to inappropriate sexual misconduct, is accused of having something to do with the missing girl. ( )

I had to laugh when Jewell explained that she basically wants NO interference when she writes a book---it's ALL her efforts ---Me, Myself and I---but she is so successful in her method! So many interesting characters in this book and the story subject matter itself is so much a part of our current lives---it keeps coming back to knock us in our heads---sadly!!! ( )
