The Invisible Ones

The Invisible Ones
Fiction

Paralysis and delirium. This is what PI Ray Lovell suffers after he writes off his car. He remembers nothing, least of all what drove him to it – Rose Janko. She had been missing for years and before the accident Ray promised her father he would find her. But her family seem reluctant to help. The Jankos, a close-knit Gypsy clan, have been plagued by tragedy. Perhaps they are cursed – or are they hiding something?


Set in the 1980s in southern England, THE INVISIBLE ONES is a darkly compelling mystery about superstitions, secrets and lies from a matchless storyteller.
