From Publishers Weekly
Ambitious scientist George Nash and Luis Manteles, an Ecuadoran shaman, have finally created the technology to make humans and objects invisible, but their project gets out of hand when an experiment with Tyler and Logan Griffin, their first ever human test subjects, goes awry. Three years later, Logan, who escaped shortly after becoming invisible, sneaks into Nash's Florida compound to free her husband, whom Nash has confined in a glass house. With the help of her visible roommate, Logan shuts down the computer system-at the same time that the Townsends, a family of three, wander into the test site. Consequently, the Townsends, along with a super intelligent Labrador retriever, turn invisible. Now targets of an effort by the National Security Bureau (NSB) to capture them, family and dog are forced on the run. After a plethora of close calls, a killing and a miraculous healing, all characters converge in a heady conclusion that hinges on Nash. Will he end the project or hand the Griffins, the Townsends and his life's work over to the NSB? MacGregor's (The Other Extreme) pseudoscientific explanations of Nash's "shrouding" technology are beyond belief, but her characters are drawn convincingly. Despite the familiarity of the story line, readers will easily get caught up in the suspense of the chase.

Calling OUT OF SIGHT a mystery is open to debate. Invisibility falls much more easily into the science fiction genre. If the reader does not fully buy into the premise that individuals might be turned invisible, the entire book may not work. The fact that the book was nominated for a prestigious award is surprising considering how silly the basic premise of the book actually is. Mystery fans expect at least a semblance of realism. It is hard to get that in this sci-fi thriller. Besides, the pacing is relatively slow with a length that appears endless. A disappointing nomination in an otherwise impressive group.
Keep them coming T.J. MacGregor!
More of a SciFi/X-Files type, rather than a mystery read to me...but quite entertaining none the less.
Being a sucker for all government conspiracy theories, I was hooked from the start.
A shadow national security organization is funding a "mad scientist" type who has perfected a process that can render people invisible.
One invisible subject escapes and three more are zapped by accident. Their quest to bring down the covert project while being hunted by the shadow organization's thugs is classic cat and mouse.
Some great characters on both sides...extremely fast paced...superb South Florida settings. A bit too long, but with a suspension of disbelief, this is big fun.
Just don't examine the plot too closely.

Hmm, government conspiracy perpetrated by evil, power-mad scientists, secret lagoon in the everglades, a scientific process that creates invisible people (and one invisible dog) -... Read morePublished on April 6 2004
I have to wonder if I read the same book as other reviewers did. At any rate, I found this book one long, redundant mess of cliches, derivative plotting and characters. Read morePublished on Jan. 19 2004 by Michael Butts
I have been a fan of T.J. MacGregor since I first read her series of books set in South Florida. I wish she would write more stories using Mike McCleary and his wife Quin. Read morePublished on Aug. 31 2003 by barbara j rowe
