Invisible - James Patterson & David Ellis
Always been a Patterson fan, and this falls right in line with his better work. Superb attention to detail around the criminal aspects of the storyline, which give great depth and color to both the characters and the plot.
The interjections of the chapters of ‘Graham Sessions’ became somewhat of a chore to read through but eventually serve their purpose expertly in diverting attention and setting up the inevitable plot twist at the end. In fact, it’s a rather ingenious method of misdirection for the reader.
My only gripes with the book manifested late into the storyline; there is a rather obvious diversion that seems somewhat forced in the character of Jim. A completely understood effort, but his character overall is cliche and his literary function is forced. Secondly, I was looking for additional resolution on the romantic storyline, but any Patterson reader would know that to be unlikely.
In the end, one of the better books I’ve read as of late and would certainly recommend to any crime thriller fiction fan.
