Publisher's Summary

Bill Black is a scary guy: a tall ex-con who rides to work on a Harley, and trails an air of violence wherever he goes. In Macon, Georgia, Bill has caught the eye of a wiry little drug dealer and his cunning girlfriend. They think Bill might be a useful ally. They don’t know that Bill is a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent named Will Trent. Or that he is fighting his own demons, undercover and cut off from the support of Sara Linton - the woman he loves, who he dares not tell he is putting himself at such risk.

Sara herself has come to Macon because of a cop shooting: Her stepson Jared has been gunned down in his home. Sara holds Lena, Jared’s wife, responsible: The female detective has been a magnet for trouble all her life, and it’s not the first time someone Sara loved got caught in the crossfire. Furious, Sara gets involved in the same case that Will is working without even knowing it, and soon danger is swirling around both of them.

In a novel of fierce intensity, shifting allegiances, and shocking twists, two investigations collide around a conspiracy on both sides of the law. Karin Slaughter’s latest is both an electrifying thriller and a piercing study of human nature: What happens when good people face the unseen evils in their lives?

    "The best Will Trent book yet"
    Would you listen to Unseen again? Why?

    As I often do, when there's a new book from an author I like, I go back and start at the beginning, finishing with the new book. With that background, I sometimes find an author has begun to coast and no longer writes the quality novels that started his or her career. That is NOT the case with Unseen. In fact, I'd say this is Karen Slaughter's best yet. It's far more exciting than any of her other books and while there are some child molestations that are vividly described, they don't occur until late in the book. And by then the plot is moving so fast and furious they don't overwhelm the book. In a year of so I will likely listen to all the Will Trent books again and I will definitely listen to this one. I totally recommend "Unseen."

    Story
    "Another Will Trent winner!"

    The publisher's summary is on the mark with this one.

    Karin Slaughter manages to have new scenarios, twists, and evils in every book. This is no exception. Will Trent and Sarah Linton return. While trying to maintain their true identities and relationship, they are each participating in their own personal stresses. It is difficult to tell who can be trusted and who cannot.. Eventually the two scenarios merge, but that does not mean that everyone is safe or that the crime mysteries are solved.

    I really enjoy this series! The twists keep me guessing until the end. The main characters remain true as they face new evils.

    Kathleen Early has this narration down pat.

    Story
    "Last book of Series. Edge of my seat throughout."
    If you could sum up Unseen in three words, what would they be?

    Great final book of this series


    What did you like best about this story?

    Will Trent and Sarah at their best.


    Have you listened to any of Kathleen Early’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. This is one of her best.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Strong emotions throughout the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Only negative thing for me was the fact that in previous books of this series Will Trent refused to upgrade his tattered and broken cell phone because of the issues he has with Dyslexia. That's cool, but then in this book all of a sudden he's mastering a "smart phone" with intense, complicated apps.

    Story
    "Almost..."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not sure about this one...certainly would recommend the previous books in the series, they were much better.


    What was most disappointing about Karin Slaughter’s story?

    Not as smoothly written as her previous novels. Her Will Trent books usually keep me on the edge of my seat, never a dull moment. I found my attention wandering at times, which has never happened before while listening to this series. It felt a bit disjointed and too much time spent on characters' romantic musings and struggles. Couldn't sink my teeth into it, as much as I wanted to.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not one in particular.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Less misunderstandings and emotional drama.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope Ms. Slaughter gets back into fighting form in her next Will Trent book.

    "Starts off slow ..."

    Starts off slow with a lot of he said she said but picks up about 3/4 of the wY through. I like books w more action less talk (and less romance!)

    "Another great book in this series!"

    I can't imagine any mystery lover not liking this book! It was well written as well as narrated. I will probably listen to it again at some point.

    "Good story but...."

    The story was great, lots of twists and turns. Was a bit violent sometimes for too long. I lost a few chapters when the second half started. Not sure what the technical issue was but was able to figure out the drift on my own.

    Books are wonderful. When I am sad or feeling down, all I need to do is turn on a book, and I'm in a different world.... Thank you!

    Story
    "I enjoy the Will Trent Series !"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Unseen to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    All of it! It was easy to follow, held my interest from beginning to end. The love story between Sara and Will is so sweet. It held just the right mix of intrigue, danger and love. Lena is such a great character. She's honest and I believe there are more Lena's out there than we think!


    What about Kathleen Early’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoy listening to Kathleen Early. She is so natural. Every book she narrates, does the book justice for sure!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Pretty much ! I enjoyed it.


    Any additional comments?

    Karin Slaughter always nails it! I've listened to every one of her books. Early and Slaughter are a great team!

    "She almost got away with it"
    Any additional comments?

    Kayla is someone who almost go away with everything. The meat of this book doesn't happen until the last 2 hours. Overall the book was a good end to a good series. The characters are good and likeable. Each book in this series focuses on the main characters back stories.
