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

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

A breathtakingly brilliant novel by an author at the absolute top of her game.

Jenny Colgan

Compelling and surprisingly moving - Lisa Jewell never lets you down.

Clare Mackintosh

Invisible Girl. I loved it. Every damn word.

AJ Finn

An outstanding tale of intrigue, family secrets and exceptional storytelling. Lisa is the queen of intrinsic plotting with relatable characters, and suspense by the bucket load. I adored it.

Mel Sherratt

Another masterpiece from a novelist whose grip on human nature in its flawed entirety never slips. Invisible Girl is gripping, disturbing and acutely observant; Jewell is an extremely special writer.

Alex Marwood

I didn't mean to but I couldn't help it - I read this in one sitting last night. It's a masterclass in how to write with pace and tension, and the characters are brilliantly realised. I simply didn't want to put it down! Out in August and it's very good indeed.

Harriet Tyce

What I love about Invisible Girl is its taut, intuitive writing, its pacy plot and its complex, original characters. Lisa Jewell writes with such compassion but she isn't afraid of plunging an icy blade into her readers' hearts whilst examining the cruel realities of the world.

Adele Parks

Gripping [...] A brilliant exploration of how we often look for bad people in the wrong places.

Good Housekeeping

Really good, gripping. I couldn't bear for it to finish.

Olivia Colman

Skin-crawlingly creepy, this reveals the dangerous preconceptions about those around us.

Crime Monthly Magazine

Apart from anything else, this book is an instant education about Incels - the new breed of men who identify as Involuntary Celibates...But that's just one of several profoundly disturbing themes that Jewell tackles with typical frankness in one of her most powerful books to date.

DAILY MAIL

If you want a clever, compelling plot with characters you won't forget, Lisa Jewell never fails to deliver - and her new novel is further proof!
