AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"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 bestselling author

The #1 New York Times bestselling 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.
Young Saffyre Maddox spent three years under the care of renowned child psychologist Roan Fours. When Dr. Fours decides their sessions should end, Saffyre feels abandoned. She begins looking for ways to connect with him, from waiting outside his office to walking through his neighborhood late at night. She soon learns more than she ever wanted to about Roan and his deceptively perfect family life. On a chilly Valentine's night, Saffyre will disappear, taking any secrets she has learned with her.

Owen Pick's life is falling apart. In his thirties 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.

Owen lives across the street from the Fours family. The Fours have a bad feeling about their neighbor; Owen is a bit creepy and suspect and their teenaged daughter swears he followed her home from the train station one night. Could Owen be responsible? What happened to the beautiful missing Saffyre, and does her disappearance truly connect them all?

Evocative, vivid, and unputdownable, Lisa Jewell's latest thriller is another "haunting, atmospheric, stay-up-way-too-late read" (Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author).

I quite enjoyed this Lisa Jewel novel. It kept me reading and guessing. A good read.

The writing kept me engaged, though there were a few quite unbelievable bits. And to be honest, I still don't get the ending, and a quick search of the internet re spoilers shows me I'm not alone in this. Still, I liked the book overall and would recommend.

Not the best book I have read. A little long for my liking and so much detail.

Another page-turner from Lisa Jewell. It's not one of my favorites but I still enjoyed it and tried to guess who was responsible for the attacks and disappearances of several young women.

Another Lisa Jewell page-turner. I liked this one quite a lot, even though I've read some negative reviews. These books aren't stellar pieces of literature in any sense, but they do keep me reading into the wee hours of the night.

Good thriller with unusual portrayal of "incel" culture and the powers of pride and redemption.

This was a good book, but not one of the best by Lisa Jewell. Unlike most of her other books, there was nothing really shocking or exciting. Still one of my favourite authors though.

A good book, interesting story, but definitely not one of my favorites from Lisa Jewell. It was interesting enough to keep me wanting to read it, and I love how Lisa tells a story, but the twists in this book weren't as exciting or mysterious as I've come to expect. Still a good read!

A captivating book that isn't quite as dark as some of her other books.
