When a man who spies on other people in public places runs into a group that spies on people in their homes, he feels their methods are immoral, but his encounter with the group sets off a violent chain of events involving a government agent who appears to be a Chinese spy, a tangled government conspiracy, a man who is followed by a swarm of wasps, and all sorts of other bizarre people and events that collide and lead to an incredible confrontation.
The Unseen by T. L. Hines is expertly written, though the prose and plotting grow slightly less tight as the story progresses, and at times story elements get so wild they threaten to send the novel over the top. However, it manages to hold it all together until the end, delivering plenty of twists and turns along the way, keeping the reader off balance and staying consistently entertaining. I will note that, for a “Christian” thriller, there is no overt Christian content. It’s basically just a clean thriller, which is fine if that is what you are looking for.
