PEACHTREE CORNERS -- Known as an international best-selling author of thrillers, Atlanta native Karin Slaughter plans to stop by the Peachtree Corners Barnes & Noble on Saturday in hopes to raise money for the Gwinnett County Public Library system. She will talk about her latest novel, "Unseen," and sign copies starting at 3 p.m.

"Unseen" is a story that "pits detectives, lovers and enemies against one another in an unforgettable standoff between righteous courage and deepest evil," according to a press release.

The story follows Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, whose latest case has him posing as Bill Black, a scary ex-con who rides a motorcycle around Macon.

While undercover, Trent's love interest Sara Linton also finds herself in Macon because her stepson was killed in his home.

Along the way, Linton finds herself involved in the same case that Trent is working on without even knowing it, and trouble brews for the couple.

Customers who mention the library while checking out at the Peachtree Corners store can benefit the library with their purchases starting at 9 a.m. Saturday.

Slaughter is a New York Times best-selling author of 12 novels, including "Fallen," "Broken," "Undone," "Fractured," "Beyond Reach," "Triptych" and "Faithless."

The bookstore is located in The Forum on Peachtree Parkway at 5141 Peachtree Parkway in Peachtree Corners.
