Meanwhile, Gus comes under threat from a stalker who is not afraid to get up close and personal.
Can Gus protect his loved ones and catch the killer before another Snap is received?
Ooh what a wonderfully dark and tangled web of a story Unseen Evil is!
This is such a current read with lots going off in it, yet at a pace that was easy to keep up with. I loved the short chapters as it was definitely a case of, just one more and then the next thing I knew, I’d manage to squeeze quite a few more in.
The author has the reader on the edge of their seat all the way through this novel. I couldn’t relax for one minute as with every page turned it compelled me to keep on turning them as I was so invested in this story as well as the characters. A few of the younger ones I was really drawn to. I think deep down a few of them are good kids, just in the wrong crowd with circumstances working against them. I think it does make you think more about why some young adults turn to crime and that sometimes we are quick to judge.
Gus having his own stalker really complicates things. Not only is he having to work a hard case, his personal life takes a bit of a beating also. The poor guy really needs a break but then where would the fun in that be? He is a great character though and a genuinely nice guy that the reader really routes for.
Unseen Evil is another thrilling and gripping read in the series. The story line was rather unique making it stand out in it’s own right within the genre. The author takes the reader right into the heart of Bradford and whilst it might not show the best side of it, there is a real meaning of community and a sense of family within it. A cracker of a novel that crime readers are going to love.
