Invisible by James Patterson and David Ellis is a novel with the same style of the Tv series called Criminal Minds. That is a mystery thriller that I read with no real interest at first.

Let’s start from the plot. Invisible is set in the US, where an arsonist s...

If you are a new autho...

Hence, about this, there are two options: or the author has a great writing talent or the editor of the traditional publisher did a great editing work. How...
