Publisher's Summary

New York Times best seller

“No one writes like Slaughter.... This may make her an anomaly, but she is the best damn anomaly writing books today. Make sure you read Unseen.” (The Huffington Post)

Detectives, lovers, and enemies are pitted against one another in an unforgettable standoff between righteous courage and deepest evil from New York Times best-selling author Karin Slaughter.   

Will Trent is a Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent whose latest case has him posing as Bill Black, a scary ex-con who rides a motorcycle around Macon, Georgia, and trails an air of violence wherever he goes. The cover has worked, and he has caught the eye of a wiry little drug dealer who thinks he might be a useful ally. But undercover and cut off from the support of the woman he loves, Sara Linton, Will finds his demons catching up with him.   

Although she has no idea where Will has gone, or why, Sara herself has come to Macon because of a cop shooting; her stepson, Jared, has been gunned down in his own home. Sara holds Lena, Jared’s wife, responsible. Lena, a detective, has been a magnet for trouble all her life, and Jared’s shooting is not the first time someone Sara loved got caught in the crossfire. Furious, Sara finds herself 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 with a conspiracy straddling both sides of the law. Unseen is both an electrifying thriller and a piercing study of human nature: what happens when good people face the unseen evils in their lives.

Violent enough for a man

I only read female authors. My experience has taught me that male authors are too violent and graphic for my taste. Karen Slaughter’s latest novel rivals many male authors. There were far too many stabbings and beatings for my taste. This book goes beyond the violence and adds the subject of child sex trafficking. It was very dark. I gave it three stars because the writing was good and I loved the story line of Lena and Jarod as well as the raw emotions between Will and Sarah. Ms. Slaughter needs to give us more happy, less gory. It is like cooking...balance the flavors please.

Melodramatic and Immature Relationships?

I really enjoy this series and the characters in it. I respect most of the developments of the characters, but the *drama* between Sara(h?) and Will during this book is gag-worthy! I get that Will is backwards and broken in his own way, but Sarah? She’s been married before, she’s an adult, and she overreacts to Will going undercover worse than a teenager.
Not the author’s best work.

No one has ever seen me.

I enjoyed this listen. It wasn't my favorite of the Will Trent series, but it was enjoyable all the same. As my headline states, " No one has ever seen me," said by Will Trent. That statement was such a powerful and important part of the book. I don't usually give spoilers, but I felt that one line really helped me "like" this particular book. Good listen! Unseen, makes you think about many different things, and I do recommend this book. #HarperCollins #AvonAddict

Karin Slaughter at her best. Another one that did not disappoint till the end. I was worried about Will at times, but it all worked out.

Will Trent Undercover!

In Unseen, Will Trent goes undercover as violent ex-con Bill Black. He’s doing his undercover stint in Macon, Georgia, where Sara’s stepson, Jared, lives with his wife Lena. Yes, that Lena. This book was full of intrigue, deception, violence, and devastating twists and turns. Sara learns that her stepson, Jared, has been gunned down in his home, and she immediately blames Lena. She can’t reach Will while he’s undercover, and unbeknownst to her, she ends up involved in the very same case he is investigating.

This book was another exciting entry in the Will Trent series, and I was on pins and needles throughout and up till the very end. Karin Slaughter is truly the master at what she does. I would follow her anywhere! I listened to this on Audible with the always brilliant narrator Kathleen Early who makes these characters come alive. I gave this fabulous book five stars!

Another Gripping Book by K.S.

Right from the beginning Karin Slaughter sucks you in a level of suspense you couldn’t prepare for. And it’s so good!!!

I’m in love with Will Trent. I get so excited when he enters the room. His mind is a work of heart. I wish K.S. would have used his thought processing skills more in this novel but I get why she didn’t give his position in the story. All the same, great work. I even loved the main bad guys too!

another great Will Trent

After the long, drawn out last book in the series this one really delivered. I want to gobble these books up but also don't want them to end!
