Pippa Kelly’s Invisible Ink takes the reader through the mind of Max Rivers, a young lawyer on the fast-track, who is haunted by tragedy from his childhood that he’s buried too deeply for too long. Just as his life should be coming together; new baby, proposed marriage, he is nearly reduced to mental illness from the hauntings of these events.

Max is at a time when he should be embracing his future but is held back by the past and therefore unable to reach out to the present.
