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

unusual and gripping

Really enjoyed the rear window aspect of this one, very Hitchcock like in the suspense. Created a real sense of fear with the victim and really well told by narrator. The link between previous books is great asis the blossoming romance between Shea and Jackson. Recommended to anyone who enjoys a good story.

I hope it's a debut novel...

If it is, then great...this author can only get better. If it's not, then no...the initial premise is intriguing, although not new (murder witnessed through a window from across the street), and the face blindness did add a whole new layer. But the dialogue is so namby pamby...sometimes even eye-rolling...that you forget the premise is actually good. And the story totally lacks believability which seems necessary to feel any connection to the characters or to feel the tension that should build in a murder drama.

As for the narrator, I will watch for her name and never listen to another book she narrates. THAT did not help this book AT ALL..had to turn up the speed to avoid the dragging out of each Valley Girl word/sentence.

I don't want to make a headline.

I enjoy this series but I hate the constant scared and shaky female voices . Not all females sound afraid 24/7 when they speak. Just stop it.

wrong narrator

I love all Jana Deleon's books and Julie McKay is good narrator but NOT for this series. If you are not from the south you'll be fine. If you are southern don't bother with this series in audible format. The narrator will absolutely get on your last nerve with her grown up valley girl inflection ...and set in NEW ORLEANS?? What in the name of Marie Laveau were they thinking!!?

Love this series by Jana DeLeon

I absolutely love this series. I have read all the books in the series and cannot wait for more to come out. I am going to read some of the author's other series. Hopefully they will be as good as this series. The narrator of this series is perfect.
