PRE-ORDER NOW: FROM THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE FAMILY UPSTAIRS and THEN SHE WAS GONE comes an engrossing, twisty tale of betrayal in which an outsider is accused of murder...

_______________________________________

LONDON: On a fine avenue of grand houses, big cars and electronic gates, lies a neglected urban wasteland.

It is nearly midnight, and very cold. Yet in this dark place of long grass and tall trees where cats hunt and foxes shriek, a girl is waiting...

When Saffyre Maddox was ten something terrible happened and she's carried the pain of it around with her ever since. The man who she thought was going to heal her didn't, and now she hides from him, invisible in the shadows, learning his secrets; secrets she could use to blow his safe, cosy world apart.

Owen Pick is invisible too. He's thirty-three years old and he's never had a girlfriend, he's never even had a friend. Nobody sees him. Nobody cares about him.

But when Saffyre Maddox disappears from opposite his house on Valentine's night, suddenly the whole world is looking at him. Accusing him. Holding him responsible.

Because he's just the type, isn't he? A bit creepy?

INVISIBLE GIRL: A story of secrets and injustices, and of how we look in the wrong places for the bad people while the real predators walk among us in plain sight. _________________________________

Praise for Invisible Girl

“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.”

Erin Kelly
