Summary

Madison Avery is a young woman with a huge problem. From her penthouse apartment, she witnessed a murder in the building across the street, but by the time the police arrived, the crime scene had been wiped clean. Unfortunately Madison suffers from prosopagnosia - face blindness - so even though she had a clear view of the murder, she can't describe the victim or the killer. With no forensic evidence that a crime was committed and no description of the victim to match to a body, the police have no choice but to close the file.

But Shaye Archer doesn't have the same limitations.

When Shaye hears Madison's story, she believes the young woman saw exactly what she claims, and even though Shaye knows finding the killer will be next to impossible, she can't turn down the distraught woman. Especially when she finds out that the killer saw Madison. Soon the killer turns his attention to Madison, taunting her to heighten her fear, and Shaye is afraid his sights are set on his next victim.

Shaye Archer is back!!

This is such a great series, I've looked so forward to this book's release. This is book #5 in the series and I can't praise the first four enough.
This is another suspenseful story with some twists that make solving the crimes just a little more difficult.
A woman sees a murder take place in an apartment across from her own luxury condo. It kind of has a Hitchcock's Rear Window kind of feeling. She calls the police but can't give a description because she has a disorder that prevents her from being able to recognize faces. So she calls Shaye... and the tension builds.
The characters in this book are well fleshed out and believable. I really have to try DeLeon's other series.
Julie McKay does a great job narrating.

An outstanding psychological thriller series!

Unseen, Book 5 in the Shaye Archer series by Jana DeLeon, is, like the prior four novels in the series, a near perfect psychological/suspense mystery/thriller. The novel and series combine excellent character development with strong suspense and lots of action. Of course there is also the crazy yet crafty antagonist. The series books, like all of DeLeon's novels, are set in New Orleans and surrounding areas. Julie McKay does a nice job of narrating.

I recommend this psychological thriller series as well as Jana DeLeon's cozy mystery Miss Fortune Mysteries series which is set outside of New Orleans in the tiny town of Sinful, Louisiana.

Horrible Narrator

I couldn’t get through more than a few chapters. The story was OK, but the narrator was horrible, which completely ruined it for me.

Story is good but Narration wasn’t

Narrators style of speaking is annoying and uncomfortable to listen to. Story itself was good and suspenseful but I would try a different narrator

Excellent!

This is my favorite in this series...so far! What a sicko serial killer. What I love is the character development, how Shaye is coming into her own, surviving the horrors of her childhood, developing a relationship with a man she can trust and moving forward despite all she has been through.

Very good mystery and suspense!

in a series which is best read in order. I liked this book but I found all the names of the suspects (men at the motel, who stayed there and worked there) confusing. I wasn’t really sire who they were talking about and still not sure which was the killer. One of the managers? One of the people staying there? The realtor. Confusing which was which. Anyway this was still good and suspenseful. The narrator is fantastic!

movie to book

I'm pretty sure I've seen this movie of something like it. I wS slow to listen to it because I thought I knew the story.

haha, I did NOT.

I was pleasantly surprised. I hope to see them develop more and i hope Shaye finds her baby. I love all the people's lives she's touched.

Its very beautiful and sad.

It's ok

The series is ok. It seems like the author is finding herself in this series. A lot of crossing other stories, shows, and news stories I've heard. It is worth listening to if you aren't wrapped up in one of the super series on audible.
