“We've all had those moments when we felt like we were being watched--unseen eyes hovering nearby, taking in our every move.
That creepy feeling becomes reality in T. L. Hines latest novel, The Unseen.
The main character, Lucas, has an interesting hobby. He likes to watch people without them knowing it. He is a loner who spends his free time sneaking into places that most people don't even know exist. From his unseen vantage points, he quietly watches people go about their every day lives.
Within a few pages, things get turned around, and Lucas gets drawn into a world of espionage and danger, losing the anonymity that he feeds on.
T.L. Hines is a skilled expert at enticing the reader into the story and compelling us to empathize with Lucas in spite of his questionable activity. All the characters are portrayed as unique individuals, clearly drawn and brought to life on the pages. In a word, they are unforgettable.
Before the book is over it has turned into a fast-paced, high-action suspense thriller that you can't put down. As I read the book I could see the scenes playing out in my mind, much like pictures on a giant movie screen.
The story won't just tug at you a little; it will grab you by the throat and refuse to let go until the last page is read. T. L. Hines not only puts the reader in the mind of the character, but in his skin.
After reading only a portion of the story, I found myself checking to see if someone was watching me. I even examined walls in public places to see if there were suspicious-looking holes, and I locked doors behind me in my own home (after checking all possible hiding places, of course)!
The Unseen by T. L. Hines is my third review for Thomas Nelson Publishers. Though it is not a typical read for me, it will become so after reading this book. I look forward to reading more novels by T. L. Hines.
The fact that the author was able to write such a compelling story without the use of profanity or sexual content makes this book a big winner. I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a good read.”
