Lisa has a secret lover, an escape from the pressures of caring alone for her son, who has cerebral palsy. Once a month she meets Jay, just for the weekend, free from all responsibilities.

Review quote

Christine Poulson's protagonist Lisa is in need of an escape from the demands of caring on her own for a son with cerebral palsy - and she has found this escape in a lover whose name is Jay. She meets him once a month and loses herself in a realm without responsibility - until one day when Jamie does not appear, and Lisa discovers that the relationship is built on a lie. This is splendidly written fare from the reliable Poulson, written with keen psychological insight. -- Barry Forshaw * * Invisible is a great thriller. I can't say too much more about the plot because the twists & turns are the whole point of reading a book that wrong foots the reader at every turn. I really needed to concentrate, especially in the beginning as many characters are introduced & their relevance only becomes clear as events unfold. In the end, I just put aside an afternoon to finish it because I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. Invisible is more than a conventional thriller though, because we have the domestic, ordinary story of Lisa & Ricky alongside the story of Jay. As a fan of Spooks (I never missed an episode), I also loved the way Jay carried out his plans & Lisa's trip to the British Library - I can't say any more! Christine Poulson kept me reading by giving out just enough information to intrigue & puzzle so that I had to read just one more chapter. That's why, in the end, I just dropped everything else & read the last half of Invisible in one sitting. -- I Prefer Reading blog * http://preferreading.blogspot.I Prefer Reading blog * This is a proper nerve-tingler of a suspense novel, which in less than 300 pages does what many bloated thrillers fail to achieve in 500. -- Mat Coward * The Morning Star *
