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?

    "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.

    "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.

    "Classic Will Trent book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd recommend most Karin Slaughter books but probably not this audio version.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kathleen Early?

    IDK who specific narrators are but this one was awful!


    Any additional comments?

    The story was a typical Will Trent story, I wish the stories didn't always tie directly into the main characters lives. Is the town they live in really so small that every single crime revolves around one of the main characters? I also wish they would quit retelling how each character met, the personal issues [dyslexia, diabetes, death of Sarah's husband], etc. Then, this narrator had my teeth grinding the entire time. I have tried & stopped listening to this book about 5 times now. Finally I just decided to grit my teeth & get through it. Her accents & voices for the characters is irritating, she sounds like she has been running a marathon before she started reading b/c she is always out of breath & the dictation of some of her words is also nerve grinding. Other than the narrator the story was alright.

    I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!

    "Worthy of a Read- or listen to on audible."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, definately, but to start back to the beginning.. Love the way the charactors develop, I am rooting for Will and Sara.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Just don't want to see Will's life or Sara's come to an end.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I do enjoy Will, Sara, and Faith.


    Was Unseen worth the listening time?

    Yes, if you love the Will Trent Series, you will come to enjoy the story, and the small parts connecting their lives.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a bit lenghy on the direction that this mystery-thriller takes us on, covering a lot of details about Lena and her husband Jarod. I never noticed it before, but I dislike one-word titles... I would prefer the detective thrillers to have a longer title. I do wish there might have been more inclusion of Faith.. maybe next book!

    "Dreadful!"

    I simply can't believe the positive reviews on this book! I have purchased, and enjoyed, several Karin Slaughter books so adding this to my collection was a no-brainer and I was looking forward to the read. It very quickly became apparent, however, that this was not of Slaughter's usual caliber and I've found myself alternating between zoning out completely, or gritting my teeth at the unbearably tedious dialogue that characterizes this novel. In all the years I've been an Audible platinum subscriber, I've only ever felt compelled to write one other review, but in this case I couldn't hold my tongue! You know when you keep checking how much time is left in the book - and not in a good way - it's probably time to ditch it for something more enjoyable.

    Story
    "Not Bad."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I thought that listening to this book was time well spent, as I enjoy Karin Slaughter's books. I love all the characters in the Will Trent Series and enjoy understanding the methods and motivations the characters use to solve a case.
    However, I found this book a bit far fetched and also not in line with the rest of the Will Trent Series. Will going under cover as a biker struck me as odd, as he has always been described as looking like an undertaker or an accountant, and yet he seemed to fit in under his cover just fine. I also did not like that Faith wasn't really part of it all. I also really disliked that Amanda Wagner - kick ass extraordinaire, takes no BS from no one - was suddenly depicted as a bumbling, computer illiterate fool.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I wouldn't want to change anyone's story ever.
    The only suggestion I could make as a regular Audio Book listener and Karin Slaughter fan is that all her books should be narrated by Michael Kramer. The first Karin Slaughter book I ever listened to was Triptych, narrated by Michael Kramer, and he absolutely blew me away with his performance. His voice really captured the gritty and horrifically violent tone of the book, and his portrayal of all the characters - male and female - was flawless. I also liked how he managed to perfectly capture the Georgian Southern accent.
    I have found that all the other narrators of Karin Slaughter's books, in comparison to Michael Kramer, really lack the right tone for these books that have such dark violence in them.


    What three words best describe Kathleen Early’s voice?

    Expressive but boring.


    Do you think Unseen needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I do not think Unseen needs a follow up books. For reasons stated above, I wasn't totally sold on this book.

    Dragged on and didn't start to get interesting until the last 2 chapters. Mediocre at best.

    "Another great Karin Slaughter thriller"

    Very good but just how lucky can one guy be. Will Trent must have 9 lives.

    Again, start Karin Slaughter's series from the beginning and you will want to hear them all. I actually like to travel now since I can listen to her books. I opt to travel alone so I will not be interrupted with mindless chatter and can enjoy these books.
