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.

    "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.

    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.

    "Disappointing"

    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.

    "Awsome Reading"

    I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!

    "my love of Will Trent grew with this book"

    One of the complaints I have seen from some about this series is that the mysteries aren't deep and gritty enough. And, it is true that many series are darker, more twisted, scarier. But this series is deeper in its exploration of the characters' personal lives. You will grow to know and love Will, Sarah, Faith and Amanda as you read the eight novels of this series.

    Unseen offers the best of both worlds as its plot line is one of the strongest in the series. So, if you love character driven stories … you will love this series. And if you love more analysis of the crime this book in the series will likely please.

    "Enjoyed the story, despite the annoying narration"

    Love the Will Trent stories, and this one didn't disappoint. I almost didn't buy it, though, because I'm not a fan of Ms. Early's narrations, after gritting my teeth through a few of them. I can live with the monotone arc of her sentences, but I find it impossible not to be distracted by her over-emphasis of characters' names and by pronouns, even when they aren't the main ideas of the sentence, and I found it to be a major distraction in almost every sentence that wasn't dialog. I don't know why, but the over-emphasis problem doesn't happen when she's reading dialog lines. I felt as though I was tolerating the narration to get to the story.

    "Better than Criminal"

    Unseen was better than Criminal (which I returned), but I still don't care for the flashback style Slaughter has adopted with these last two books. Hopefully, she'll return to her previous brilliant style. As always, I loved the Kathleen Early narration.
