Publisher's Summary

Special Agent Will Trent has something to hide. Something he doesn’t want Dr Sara Linton – the woman he loves – to find out. He’s gone undercover in Macon, Georgia and put his life at risk. And he knows Sara will never forgive him if she discovers the truth.

But when a young Macon patrolman is shot and left for dead Sara is forced to confront the past and a woman she hoped never to see again. And without even knowing it, she becomes involved in the same case Will is working on. Soon both of their lives are in danger.

What the Critics Say

"Tightly plotted with believable characters, this brims with menace." (Sunday Mirror)

"Slaughter’s 13th novel, Unseen has all the required pieces to keep her on the bestseller lists. Slaughter gets the heady mix of forensic attention to detail & fast-paced action just right" (Press Association review syndicated to all the regional papers)

    "The Narrator made it unbearable."

    I was really looking forward to this, and even though other reviews said the narrator was poor. I still have it a try.

    Worst idea ever. I couldn't get past her horrible male voice. It's just - bad.

    Had to return the book as I could not stand it.

    Please please someone get the other narrator who read the previous Will Trent books to read this one!

    "Unseen by Karin Slaughter"

    I love Karin Slaughter but sadly Unseen will not be finished by me as the narrator has "slaughtered" the reading
    Some women narrators should just not read the male characters.
    Good story ruined for me

    "Trust the reviews - the narration is terrible!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I have bought all of Karin Slaughter's audiobooks and have been enthralled with Sarah's life after her husband died. They are great books to listen to when running BUT jeez, the narrator on this one is terribly off putting. Her characters change tone and accent half way through a conversation and her deep voice is distracting - and just terrible.
    What a shame. All I can think of when I'm listening is how did this get released.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the series and the characterisations. The plots are all different and keep me interested. Disappointed with this one - it shouldn't have been released in it's current format.

    "Ordinary"

    I have enjoyed the Karin Slaughter books and looked forward to the next in the series eagerly. Whilst it carried on with the lives of the same characters I found the plot quite ordinary and it failed to grip me or hold my attention in the same way as the previous novels.
    I was disappointed by the female narrator who's 'male voices' just annoyed me and distracted further from the story. Shame.

    "Karin did it again"
    If you could sum up Unseen in three words, what would they be?

    Addictive, hard hitting, passionate!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Unseen?

    I won't say I think it will spoil the book....


    Which character – as performed by Penelope Rawlins – was your favourite?

    Will, I loved his vulnerability....


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes definitely but I had to listen to it on the way to and from work. I was having terrible withdrawal symptoms i so listened to it at home at well just to see what happened next!


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this installment of the developing relationship between Will and Sarah can't wait for the next book in this series.

    "True Slaughter"

    I'm a Karen Slaughter fan, and this did not disappoint me! Held my attention from beginning to end. The narrator was good and I wouldn't think twice about listening to another book read by her. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and this one was one of the best for a long time.

    "The importance of a good speaker"

    I have always loved this author and I am sure this book is just as good as the others, however the narrator seems to believe that to read the male words she has to make this really deep voice. it makes the words difficult to understand and has completely spoiled the beginning of the story for me. I am trying to persevere with this book because the author is usually so good but I am unsure I will be able to cope with this narrator.

    I have scored the book low only because It is so difficult to get into it with this narrator.

    "Slow story, slow delivery"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The book would have been better if it had been half the length and got to the point without the continual rehashing of ideas.


    What didn’t you like about Penelope Rawlins’s performance?

    Really slow delivery, awful voices.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I have liked most of the other books by Karin Slaughter. The last one was a bit odd but this one was just tedious.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Loved the story but had to listen through gritted teeth. Male voices so poor. So my advice is read it. Or find another version


    Would you be willing to try another one of Penelope Rawlins’s performances?

    No

    "don't do it!"

    good story but seriously the narrator would make want to give up after the first chapter! the different voices for the characters distract you so much I lost track of the storyline. I rarely write reviews but this was so bad I couldn't not warn people!

    "Dreadful narration!"

    Love the Karin Slaughter books but this narrator was the worst I've ever heard. I actually couldn't listen to it after a few chapters and ended up downloading the ebook instead to finish reading. I've listened to hundreds of audible books & this was the first time I couldn't finish listening due to poor narration. The narrator had poor pacing, poor accents, awful phrasing that detracted from the meaning of the story. However the worst part of the narration was the terrible male dialogue. The narrator put on what I can only describe as a voice that a child imitating the Incredible Hulk would use. Particularly unsuitable for the Will Trent character. It was very disappointing and given that this is a very popular author I would hope that this book would be rerecorded with a better narrator.
