Excerpt from Invisible by James Patterson

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

Here’s my newest James Patterson read. Invisible is about tracking down the worst serial killer of all time. In the beginning, Emmy Dockery is the only one who believes he even exists. Everyone thinks she has gone over the edge after the “accidental” death of her twin, but of course you and I know… Emmy is right…

Dreams suck. You think you’ve conquered something, you work on it over and over and tell yourself you’re getting better, you will yourself to get better, you congratulate yourself on getting better. And then you close your eyes at night, you drift off into another world, and suddenly your own brain is tapping you on the shoulder and saying, Guess what? You’re NOT better! 

James Patterson, Invisible

Everyone thinks Emmy Dockery is crazy. Obsessed with finding the link between hundreds of unsolved cases, Emmy has taken leave from her job as an FBI researcher. Now all she has are the newspaper clippings that wallpaper her bedroom, and her recurring nightmares of an all-consuming fire.

Not even Emmy’s ex-boyfriend, field agent Harrison “Books” Bookman, will believe her that hundreds of kidnappings, rapes, and murders are all connected. That is, until Emmy finds a piece of evidence he can’t afford to ignore. More murders are reported by the day–and they’re all inexplicable. No motives, no murder weapons, no suspects. Could one person really be responsible for these unthinkable crimes?

    Sounds like a book I’d enjoy. I haven’t read much by this very prolific author. Here are my teasers this week. Happy reading!

  5. Hm. Yep – I’ve been there. Are you enjoying this one? My TT this week envisages a world where the Terminator prevailed and John Connor didn’t – https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2017/08/29/teaser-tuesday-29th-august-2017/
