Sneak Peek Critiques © INVISIBLE – Chapter #1 – By James Patterson {VIDEO}


Sneak Peek Critiques © are all about the first 8 lines of any story.

An experienced editor will tell you they can almost always determine whether or not a manuscript is worth continuing reading within the first 8 sentences…

and sometimes much sooner!

In fact, the very first sentence of any book or chapter is essential to getting the reader hooked.


A writer can never slack off. Every sentence and every word counts.

Editors know this.

That’s why if your story doesn’t grab them within the first 8 lines you’re manuscript is most likely doomed and dragged to the trash icon.


In the video below we look at the first chapter of James Patterson’s INVISIBLE.

Here’s a quick synopsis of INVISIBLE if you haven’t had a chance to read/hear it yet. 

Don’t worry… no spoilers. 


Everyone thinks Emmy Dockery is crazy.

Obsessed with finding the link between hundreds of unsolved cases, Emmy has taken leave from her job as an FBI researcher.

Now all she has are the newspaper clippings that wallpaper her bedroom, and her recurring nightmares of an all-consuming fire.

Not even Emmy’s ex-boyfriend, field agent Harrison “Books” Bookman, will believe her that hundreds of kidnappings, rapes, and murders are all connected.

That is, until Emmy finds a piece of evidence Books can’t afford to ignore.

More murders are being reported by the day–and they’re all inexplicable.

No motives, no murder weapons, no suspects. Could one person really be responsible for all these unthinkable crimes?


Invisible is a #1 New York Times bestselling thriller.

The series continues with Unsolved (Review Coming Soon).
