CRIME THRILLER REVIEW: Unseen - Karin Slaughter

Release Date: 04/07/13
Publisher:  Century

The chilling new Will Trent thriller from the No. 1 Sunday Times bestselling author of Criminal. 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 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.


I love a criminal story that really gives me not only a murder to crack but delivers characters that I want to spend time with. Usually Karin Slaughter is a comfort author to go to, however the problem with this book was it was dealing more with the personal conflict between two characters rather than concentrating on the case almost as if it was a second thought.

Don’t get me wrong, there is a lot of thing within to please the reader against Karin’s usual work it felt as though it was below that quality that I was expecting. All round I did get a solid enough book to settle down with but when a book loses steam for the very elements that the author attracted me to in the first place I feel more than a little cheated.
