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. --
Really good, gripping. I couldn't bear for it to finish. -- Olivia Colman
Lisa Jewell's dark and twisty thriller explores the murkier reaches of the human psyche, confounding expectations as it reaches a shocking denouement. * Daily Mail *
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. -- Jane Casey
Dark, gripping, emotionally intense. My heart hurt from being squeezed so tight. -- Tamar Cohen
