David Colosi - The Invisible Hand

 

2000-1999

DUST JACKET COPY: In The Invisible Hand David Colosi tackles the genre of detective fiction. His protagonist, a nameless detective of the highest intellect, takes on the task of unraveling the frightening case of an invisible presence haunting a book. From the opening, the detective stalks the spector from traces left carelessly behind (or, at first, it so seems). Gathering clues and collecting evidence on every page, the detective tries to identify the culprit. The reader follows along as partner and sidekick to the sleuth while remaining hidden in the margins, contributing in the task of sorting, and deciphering the messages left in the culprit's trail. At a sudden and unlocatable moment, confusion and terror grip both reader and detective alike when they realize the invisible hand now stalks them every step of the way - detectives become victims at the turn of the page. All trust is broken, and the trail of one character blends into that of the next as all seek to identify each other.

BLURBS:
"Gripping and packed with information. A protagonist of invisible proportions."
-New York Timely-

"A genuine page turner."
-The Village Vocal-

"Filled with motion and intrigue. Each new page offers additional clues which result in a stunning feat of revelation and discovery."
-Los Angeles Weekender-

"A mystery for all readers."
-The Chicago Sunny Times-

"By replacing the ink of the words in a conventional novel with ink tracing the finger movements of the reader - invisible marks present in every book and every act of reading - Colosi has thumbed a literary caper deftly exemplifing the cat and mouse chase inherent in the relationship between author and reader. No other work in American literature illustrates more clearly this collaboration inherent in the acts of reading and writing. Overall, a well-handled book."
-Berto Umbeco-
