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.

"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)
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!
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
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.
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.
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"
Addictive, hard hitting, passionate!
I won't say I think it will spoil the book....
Will, I loved his vulnerability....
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!
Loved this installment of the developing relationship between Will and Sarah can't wait for the next book in this series.
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"
The book would have been better if it had been half the length and got to the point without the continual rehashing of ideas.
Really slow delivery, awful voices.
I have liked most of the other books by Karin Slaughter. The last one was a bit odd but this one was just tedious.
"The accents spoill the story"
Ive read and listened to a lot of her books but cannot continue with this as the corny accents are over the top. what a shame!
I should have checked the narrator having been used to Jennifer Woodward, I could not understand the voices and did not know the characters the way Penelope Rawlins read this. What happened to Will Trent's voice, he has turned into a zombie. If you are working through the Karin Slaughter books keep to the same narrator. Good story but spoiled for me
Loved the story but had to listen through gritted teeth. Male voices so poor. So my advice is read it. Or find another version
"I've missed Will Trent"
I was a few books behind in this series but have just listened to criminal and unseen straight after each other. I loved them both it was great to hear more about Lena and Jared and to see interaction between Sara and Lena again
Can't wait to start the next one .
Once again Well done Karin
I love Karin Slaughter. I loved every minute of this story. The characters are really bought to life. Thanks so much
