Publisher's Summary

Madison Avery is a young woman with a huge problem. From her penthouse apartment, she witnessed a murder in the building across the street, but by the time the police arrived, the crime scene had been wiped clean. Unfortunately Madison suffers from prosopagnosia - face blindness - so even though she had a clear view of the murder, she can't describe the victim or the killer. With no forensic evidence that a crime was committed and no description of the victim to match to a body, the police have no choice but to close the file.

But Shaye Archer doesn't have the same limitations.

When Shaye hears Madison's story, she believes the young woman saw exactly what she claims, and even though Shaye knows finding the killer will be next to impossible, she can't turn down the distraught woman. Especially when she finds out that the killer saw Madison. Soon the killer turns his attention to Madison, taunting her to heighten her fear, and Shaye is afraid his sights are set on his next victim.

Shaye Archer is back!!

This is such a great series, I've looked so forward to this book's release. This is book #5 in the series and I can't praise the first four enough.
This is another suspenseful story with some twists that make solving the crimes just a little more difficult.
A woman sees a murder take place in an apartment across from her own luxury condo. It kind of has a Hitchcock's Rear Window kind of feeling. She calls the police but can't give a description because she has a disorder that prevents her from being able to recognize faces. So she calls Shaye... and the tension builds.
The characters in this book are well fleshed out and believable. I really have to try DeLeon's other series.
Julie McKay does a great job narrating.

An outstanding psychological thriller series!

Unseen, Book 5 in the Shaye Archer series by Jana DeLeon, is, like the prior four novels in the series, a near perfect psychological/suspense mystery/thriller. The novel and series combine excellent character development with strong suspense and lots of action. Of course there is also the crazy yet crafty antagonist. The series books, like all of DeLeon's novels, are set in New Orleans and surrounding areas. Julie McKay does a nice job of narrating.

I recommend this psychological thriller series as well as Jana DeLeon's cozy mystery Miss Fortune Mysteries series which is set outside of New Orleans in the tiny town of Sinful, Louisiana.

Love this series by Jana DeLeon

I absolutely love this series. I have read all the books in the series and cannot wait for more to come out. I am going to read some of the author's other series. Hopefully they will be as good as this series. The narrator of this series is perfect.

Great addition to the series!

I’m glad I waited for the audible version. It was just as good as the rest. I highly recommend reading in order. I’m already hoping for another one soon.

Horrible Narrator

I couldn’t get through more than a few chapters. The story was OK, but the narrator was horrible, which completely ruined it for me.

Story is good but Narration wasn’t

Narrators style of speaking is annoying and uncomfortable to listen to. Story itself was good and suspenseful but I would try a different narrator

Good story. I liked it. Narration was better too.

Another good Shaye Archer story. I liked the mystery in these stories. There sure are a lot of serial killers in New Orleans though.

In this one the witness has an interesting condition where she cant remember/recognize faces. Until this book I had never heard of this prosopagnosia disease before. I feel for those people for sure. Especially those with a killer after them.

These stories are fast paced and easy to follow along. Good mysteries thrillers.

As for the narration, it was better. Either Julie McKay is mellowing out on the "almost crying/panicking" character reading or I am just getting used to it. LOL I hope it is the former. I this this book, Shaye seemed to be talking in more normal tone and not like she was on the verge of crying or panic, which was a relief.

This is a good series and I am enjoying it. I like Jackson and I like that the relationship/romance is not taking over the stories.

Another fabulous mystery

I love the shaye archer books. The mystery is always riveting and the main characters resonate while the villains are completely creepy and seriously scary. This one is no exception.
I love the narrator too. I hope she continues with the series.
