Unseenby Karin Slaughter
Synopses & Reviews
Karin Slaughter’s New York Times bestselling novels featuring detective Will Trent are utterly riveting and masterfully drawn. Her latest thriller, Unseen, pits detectives, lovers, and enemies against one another in an unforgettable standoff between righteous courage and deepest evil.
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. Karin Slaughter’s latest is both an electrifying thriller and a piercing study of human nature: what happens when good people face the unseen evils in their lives.
"Bestseller Slaughter's tense and densely plotted thriller, the fifth to merge her Atlanta-based characters with those in Georgia's fictional Grant County (after 2012's Criminal), focuses on stubborn Lena Adams, a Macon police detective and the woman that Dr. Sara Linton — the girlfriend of Georgia Bureau of Investigation agent Will Trent — blames for her husband Jeffrey's murder years earlier. Lena, now married to Jeffrey's son from his first marriage, is hot on the trail of a local drug kingpin, Sid Waller. Sent undercover to assist in the investigation, Will adopts the persona of tough ex-con Bill Black, all unbeknownst to Sara. But Will's secret suddenly becomes harder to keep when Lena and her fellow officer husband, Jared, are attacked in their home, leaving Jared clinging to life and bringing Sara from Atlanta to Macon to see her stepson. The twisted plot and shocking reveals remind readers why Slaughter remains a dominant voice in crime fiction. Agent: Victoria Sanders, Victoria Sanders & Associates.
