NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Karin Slaughter?s 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.

Praise for Unseen

?Slaughter?s most powerful book to date . . . No one writes like Slaughter. . . . Her words fairly growl on paper but yet her descriptions of relationships are tear inducing. This may make her an anomaly but she is the best damn anomaly writing books today. Make sure you read Unseen.??The Huffington Post

?Compelling . . . [Slaughter] balances a complex plot with believable twists while sensitively exploring her realistic characters' emotions and problems.??South Florida Sun-Sentinel

?An emotional roller coaster ride . . . fast-paced and edge-of-your seat . . . Slaughter is brilliant.??Wichita Falls Times Record News

?Superb and emotionally wrenching . . . The despicable nature of the crimes being investigated only serves to enhance Will?s innate goodness and humanity. Current series fans will be delighted, and newcomers to Slaughter?s work will find a new obsession.??Library Journal

?Slaughter plunges readers into the action from the get-go with her electrifying ability to write suspenseful, riveting confrontations between cops and criminals, all while deepening the backstories of her longtime series leads. Another intense read, on multiple levels, from the ever-reliable Slaughter.??Booklist

?Tense and densely plotted . . . The twisted plot and shocking reveals remind readers why Slaughter remains a dominant voice in crime fiction.??Publishers Weekly

Author Bio
Karin Slaughter
Although Karin Slaughter's books consistently include grisly murders or other serious crimes, she dislikes being categorized. "I'm sold as a literary writer in Holland; I'm sold as crime fiction in England; and a thriller [author] here [in the U.S.]," she once told a reporter. "I think of it as just literature. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD--that's crime fiction. That's a murder story. . . . OLIVER TWIST. What's more violent than a bludgeoned prostitute? A lot of novels use crime as a stepping stone to talk about greater issues. So I just think of myself as a writer." Slaughter was born in Covington, a small town in Georgia. She knew from an early age that she wanted to be an author, but after graduating from Georgia State University, she embarked on a series of steadier and more practical jobs; at one point she operated her own sign-manufacturing company. She wrote in her free time, however, and after a few years she had completed a manuscript she felt was good enough to show to an agent. Her debut novel, BLINDSIGHTED, was published in 2001 and featured Grant County medical examiner Sara Linton and police chief Jeffrey Tolliver, now popular recurring characters. The book, like many of her subsequent novels, landed on the bestseller list and was also nominated for a Crime Writers Association Dagger Award. In addition to Linton and Tolliver, her other series protagonists include Will Trent, a special agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The aptly named Slaughter has explained that Trent's jurisdiction includes the entire state, "which broadens [my] victim pool to almost ten million people."
