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?

Tell us about yourself!
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.
Great final book of this series
Will Trent and Sarah at their best.
Yes. This is one of her best.
Strong emotions throughout the book.
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.
Not sure about this one...certainly would recommend the previous books in the series, they were much better.
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.
Not one in particular.
Less misunderstandings and emotional drama.
Hope Ms. Slaughter gets back into fighting form in her next Will Trent book.
I'd recommend most Karin Slaughter books but probably not this audio version.
IDK who specific narrators are but this one was awful!
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!
Yes, definately, but to start back to the beginning.. Love the way the charactors develop, I am rooting for Will and Sara.
Just don't want to see Will's life or Sara's come to an end.
I do enjoy Will, Sara, and Faith.
Yes, if you love the Will Trent Series, you will come to enjoy the story, and the small parts connecting their lives.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Expressive but boring.
No, I do not think Unseen needs a follow up books. For reasons stated above, I wasn't totally sold on this book.
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.
I love the Will Trent Story. Hope you do too. I listened to all of them in a two week time frame. Waiting for the next one. Narrator is great over time.
