Invisible Girl (Paperback)
What a great psychological thriller! Too often this genre falls flat for me as so many of the stories seem the same but this one upped the ante big time.
A young man, a teacher living in his aunt's spare room, is accused of a crime, but what kind of crime? Murder? There's no body found. All the evidence is circumstantial. Still, it could have happened... but, but, but...

I love a good psychological thriller now and then and this one certainly fits the bill. It is a serious head scratcher that had me guessing all the through about a crime that may, or may not, have happened. I mean we know something happened but what? And why did it have to almost ruin more than one life? This is the perfect example of is a crime really a crime if there is no evidence. Also, it has a nice ending which is such a rarity that I almost didn’t believe it. I even re-read the last chapter over again to make sure I didn’t miss a body or two.
