Invisible, best-selling novel by Barbara Copperthwaite
There’s one victim of crime no one notices.
Something is wrong. With her marriage, with her husband, with her. But as she pours her heart out to her diary, it’s clear she doesn’t know what.
Until one explosive night she finds a possible answer.
Suddenly hated and vilified by everyone, she clings to her relationship – even while wondering if she really knows her husband at all...

INVISIBLE is a stunningly powerful, gripping and original psychological thriller of subtle insight that takes you on a twisted journey through one woman’s marriage.

There are two things that always catch people's eye on my CV: the first, that I was an air hostess for about six months, many moons ago; the second, that I worked in a men's maximum security prison for a slightly less brief period.
One day as I exchanged genuine pleasantries with one of the inmates, it struck me that bad guys often don't seem that bad. They don't wear black hats, as they do in old Westerns; they don't look menacing; and they don't have a name tag that says "evil" on it. From that point on, whenever I read about a man who had committed a terrible crime, and people would inevitably say: "The wife must have known, how could she not", I always wondered, would she? Really?
