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?

    "Sounded like such an interesting plot ....."

    but it would be hard for any author to move the story forward when all the characters seem to be mired in a bog of hyped hormones and over-dramatic interpersonal relations. I wouldn't have been surprised if they'd resolved all their issues by just shooting each other in the last chapter. Fortunately I fell asleep somewhere in the middle, and didn't think it worth backing up to the point when I drifted off, though I was just barely interested enough to finish it to see who survived.

    Another gripe - the chronology jumped around in a way that really didn't make any sense. Actually, the book may have been better if some of those jumps were just omitted. Possibly an abridged version would correct some of these problems.

    "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."

    "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.

    "Very interesting side of Will"

    If you're not a regular Karin Slaughter reader, I wouldn't start with this book, but I would definitely go back and listen to the whole series, because they're totally addictive. You can stop the review here.

    If you do follow this series, hopefully you'll like the side of Will that's a little rougher. I know I did. Despite his dyslexia, I always found Will likable, but a little too nice. He has to deal with some things in this book that toughen him up some and I think Slaughter does a very good job of showing him as less than perfect - like all humans. Ditto with Sarah. She does the unexpected a couple of times and I always appreciate that.

    Overall, I love Slaughter's writing and as an Atlanta resident, I think she gets a lot of things about the area right while most writers (those who are not Southern) simply play into the same old stereotypes about the South. Keep them coming!

    "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.

    "Gratuitous Violence"

    Only gave it a 3 because the narration is good, other wise it would have been a 1 or 2.
    Ultra graphic descriptions and gratuitous violence do not make a good book. People being nasty to each other does not make a good book. People rehashing old hurts over and over do not make for positive experiences in a book. All in all I should have passed on this one and any other of Slaughter's latest novels. Dark books like these help us to become inured to real violence.

    "I love Karin Slaughter's books!!!"

    I love Karin Slaughter's books!! This wasn't a total favorite of mine though I was glad to see Lena again, and I love the evolution of Will. He's a fascinating character. I was surprised at how awful Lena was to Sarah. And I was also surprised at how angry Sarah got with Will. It seemed stupid. I really didn't like the narrator's voice for Amanda, glad there wasn't too much of that. Really looking forward to the next book. already have it downloaded.

    "It's All Connected"

    Continuation of the Will Trent stories with expected twists and turns. Kept my interest as unpredictable facts released. I can see going back to reread to get characters straight.
