“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).

The book begins near midnight on Valentines Day. April Fools would have been much more appropriate, considering the end product.
She decides to begin following Roan Fours and learns some interesting things about him and his family. Then there is Owen Pick, an awkward man who is a 30 something virgin who is accused of some despicable crimes. All of these people are interwoven and I had theories about the connections and I wasn't even close. This book was hard to put down and is a must-read. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for my honest review.
As always, I can't wait for Lisa's next novel.
Another great read from Lisa Jewell.
This book is told from 3 POV’s
Owen Pick is a 33yr old man that lives with his aunt. Owen has never had confidence with woman and so has never dated and is still a virgin. Owen comes across to people as creepy. Owen is a professor at a local university. But he has recently lost his job because some of his female students have made claims that he was inappropriate with them.
Cate Four lives in a flat across the street from Owen. She and her husband Roan (who is a child psychologist) and their 2 teenage children (Georgia and Josh) don’t really know Owen, but they don’t trust him. Georgia swears that one night he was following her home. And let’s just say not everything is rosy in the Four house as they would have people believe.
Saffyre Maddox is 17 and lives with her uncle. She was a patient of Roan Four for 3 years due to self harming . When he says that she is cured, Saffyre feels abandoned by him (because how can she be healed when she has not told him her dark secret that made her start self harming). So she starts following him and discovers discovers some things about Roan that changes how she felt about him.
On valentines night Saffyre disappears and the last person to see her was Owen. And so begins the mystery of what happened to Saffyre.
Owen and Cate’s chapters takes us through the investigation into what happened to Saffyre. And Saffyre’s chapters are a lead up to Valentines night.
I have to say I liked Saffyre and Owen the best. They are both such complex and lonely characters. Cate I just couldn’t connect with. I actually found myself rolling my eyes during her chapters.
I had a lot of different suspects and thoughts on what happened to Saffyre and I was wrong on all of them lol.
I do think the beginning dragged a bit (especially the Cate chapters ) but the closer it started getting to Valentines night and we learned more and more details it started picking up and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened. And I have to say I did not see that coming at all.
There is no justice for anyone in this book, when the person is revealed in the end you are not able to feel anything bc it is such a minor character you have to remind yourself you even know them..and then you just SIMPLY DO NOT CARE about the outcome. flat, unfleshed,..i just hope Annie Wilkes lets Jewell leave now and get back to writing her usually stellar books 1/10 because I like foxes

sorry but it was. There are no other words for it. It was not gripping, it did not twist, it was not unexpected it was plain boring. I always have to finish a book but I wish I hadn’t. It was predictable, nothing ground breaking and I am disappointed that I have read another book which is basically another books regurgitated. Come on Jewell this is unacceptable! I skim read a lot of it because frankly it was full of waffle, so I finished it in a day. I was expectant that there would be something dark, hopeful but it was a waste of paper that the words were written on. There is no plot, it isn’t developed quick enough. A girl goes missing but is hiding. A poor man has been accused just because he’s ‘odd’. A father cheated on his wife (again) and has some weird fetish. That’s it! Why was the father as a character not explored in more detail?!! Normally I pass on books to friends but this is one going straight to the charity shop. Please do not waste your money on this rubbish. I highly recommend, The Whispering Man, The Silent Patient or No one Home. These are far, far better and not from an author or who spits out any old nonsense. I will not be reading anymore Jewell books; it’s a waste of money and time. If I could give half a star I would!
I had to force myself to slow down and really savour this. The story, based around a sad, lonely and possibly quite creepy guy called Owen, grows with a slow, steady pace as tense as a stretched wire.
I found myself walking around worrying about Owen with his crooked haircut and unfortunate expression. Jewell touches on motherhood, incels, abuse, and fear but the tone is never preachy. Jewell has an absolute gift for making her characters spring off the page at you.
All of her books have this. She is so clever you feel a connection with some characters even though you are getting quite worried they might be evil. This is what enables her to explore complicated issues in a thoughtful way as she so humanises her characters. Every one of her novels has this lovely sympathy for her characters, despite their flaws. Jewell always find their humanity so your response to them is always multi-layered.
If you haven’t read Lisa Jewell I STRONGLY suggest you start now. This is SUCH a good book it hurt to read it, wrenched as I was with envy at her talent. But, like watching an athlete at the height of their powers there is something joyful about putting yourself in the hands of a master craftswoman like Jewell. She really does seem to just get better and better. Can’t wait for the next one.
