Book Description

What You Don't See. . .

The crime scene at an Oregon rest stop is brutal beyond belief--a young man's lifeless body cut to ribbons, and his pregnant girlfriend left alive but comatose. . .

What You Don't Know. . .

Psychologist Claire Norris is assigned to treat the survivor at a private mental hospital. But there are no clues to the identity of the catatonic "Jane Doe." A difficult job only becomes more complicated with the arrival of ex-homicide detective Langdon Stone, who questions Claire's every move.

Can Kill You

Reluctantly working together, Claire and Lang begin to unravel the chilling truth about a twisted case--one with ties to a killer who is right in their midst, eager to see a mission of evil through to its terrifying end. . .

Praise for Nancy Bush's Unseen


"Full of twists and surprises. . .I couldn't put it down!"
--Lisa Jackson

"An eerie suspense novel woven with a compelling romance. . .the terrifying denouement will have readers riveted."
--Publishers Weekly


"A creative and mysterious tale with a number of twists, including a surprise ending."
--Romantic Times



Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Beautiful psychologist Claire Norris defies her superiors to protect her patients in this fast-paced and highly implausible romantic suspense novel. Claire, who works at a private mental hospital, is still haunted by memories of a patient who killed his girlfriend, Melody Stone, in front of her, nearly killing her, too. When a pregnant woman is attacked and ends up catatonic, Claire takes her as a patient, raising the hackles of investigating detective Langdon Stone, Melody's brother, who blames Claire for his sister's death. Distrust turns into sizzling passion as Langdon and Claire combine forces to solve the mystery before another life is claimed. Though Bush (Unseen) keeps the story moving quickly and ends with an unexpected twist, the plot gets bogged down by bizarre quasi-mystical side concepts and an obsession with pregnancy and motherhood.

4.0 out of 5 stars A highly entertaining read July 6, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Psychologist Claire Norris's new client is a victim of a savage assault and murder at a rest stop. Rafe is brutally slaughtered, and an unidentified woman is left catatonic when the attacker tries to take the baby from her womb. Claire has had trouble moving on from a previous case, and things don't look to improve when the two cases become intertwined thanks to the involvement of Detective Langdon Stone.

Detective Stone holds a serious grudge against Claire, who he blames for the death of his sister Melody. Melody was murdered by one of Claire's patients, Heywood Marsden III, and the paranoid schizophrenic attacked Claire as well. Claire, who witnessed the attack and was nearly a casualty herself, also pins the blame on her own failures. The two team up into an unlikely pair as they search for a resolution to the case of the unidentified woman and the rest stop attack, tracking down a psychopath whose behaviors lead him to pregnant women.

Nancy Bush unleashes a thriller that lunges headlong at a near unrelenting pace. When the book focuses on the investigation and the animosity between Claire and Langdon, the pages fly by in an energetic frenzy. It does slow down in a few spots, but it's nothing that isn't easily overcome by the rest of the story --- or simply by Claire herself. Claire is a great central character who is always willing to push the envelope in order to aid her patients, even to the point of potentially losing her job. The murder of Melody Stone and the assault on her by her own patient has been harrowing on multiple levels, and it is nice to see her struggling with that as she also seeks to help a new patient. She is a tenacious soul who doesn't back down in pursuit of answers.

4.0 out of 5 stars fast-paced thriller July 1, 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In Tillamook County, Oregon psychologist Claire Norris provides counseling to clients at Halo Valley Security Hospital. She does her best to be there for her patients as she personally never moved on from when one of clients paranoid schizophrenic Heywood Marsden III killed his girlfriend, Melody Stone, in front of her and tried to kill her too.

At a rest stop, someone kills Rafe and tries to remove the baby from Tasha's womb, but failed; Tasha is left in a catatonic state at Laurelton General's Hospital. Claire accepts the woman as a patient. The late Melody's brother Police detective Langdon Stone leads the official investigation. Like herself, he blames Claire for his sister's homicide. However as their mutual disregard turns ardently heated the cop and the doctor team up to prevent another murder from occurring.

This is a fast-paced thriller with a great late twist, but at times slows down with an extremely deep profound look at a psychopath's obsessive compulsive behavior; in this case pregnant women and mothers. Claire is terrific as she tries to help her patients even when the law and her bosses warn her to back down or else. Although the romantic subplot seems over the top of Rogers Peak as the lead pair has a tragic history, fans will enjoy this exciting action-packed thriller.

3.0 out of 5 stars could have been a better February 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
over all the book kept me very interested and couldn't wait untill it climaxed and all sercerts came out. but that didnt really happen. it came and went so fast. didnt really hear what happened to the DR. that slept with Rita, just that he wasnt there anymore, Heywards family was talked alot in the book for spreading there money around to get there son/grandson on the less secure side of hospital and then at the end they were never mentioned again. also never mentioned was Mary, where was she or how did she die, how did she really tie into all this? just gave you a sneak peak at her. Also to mention was the things that didnt make sence, as they couldnt figure out how Tasha got out of hospital, if your going to make the book real, in mental hospitals and any other place now days there are cameras!! also when the baby was stolen from hospital there was no one guarding her??? some one had just tried to kill her!!! I was losing interest at that point because it didnt seem real. also at the end, had to read it three times. Did Tasha die? thats the way I took it. and if so how? did her heart just stop? she was very young. didnt make sence. if your going to write in this time period you should use common sence also to keep it more real. very dissapointed!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My 2nd favorite Nancy Bush June 16, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Both Bush and sister, Lisa Jackson, are terrific writers, each in her own way (which is why their co-writes do not work). I love Jackson and while I'd love to NOT compare the two authors I'm going to, briefly, because I get tired of the way Jackson's super-ardent fans like taking potshots at Bush. And it's bull because Nancy Bush can tell a great story with unforgettable characters. BLIND SPOT is an engrossing murder mystery with a moving slow-burning adult romance. The two leads grow so much as they're repeatedly forced to deal with one another and it's lovely to witness. Word of warning, though: Read Bush's books chronologically and get in the habit of keeping a Cast of Characters list. Trust me. Locations repeat and the same people pop up throughout her books. Often, they cross over into Jackson's books, as well. Just saying.
