Book: Unseen
Series: Will Trent #7
Author: Karin Slaughter

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.-Goodreads

Review: Will is working undercover in Macon (I had a hard time imagining this) while Sara is also in Macon because her step-son Jared has been shot. Sara blames Jared's wife, Lena, for the death of her husband and is convinced Lena had something to do with what happened to Jared as well. Sara doesn't know Will is undercover and is furious when she finds out. 

As mentioned previously, while Will has grown on me, my favorite characters in this series are Faith and Amanda. This book was light on them and heavy on Sara, Will's girlfriend, who I find better in small doses. Her annoyance at Lena got old fast and her frustration at Will doing his job was even more annoying. I did enjoy the mystery part of this but it was too much Sara. 

Grade: 3/5
