The Last Widow sees the return of Will Trent and Sara Linton in an action-packed ninth novel featuring this couple as the main characters.
Michelle Spivey is a specialist in diseases, but first and foremost, she is a mother. So, when threatening men appear in a parking lot when she is with her young daughter, her first thought is to save her child. However, the men want her not the girl and snatch her into oblivion. A month later, Michelle turns up in the middle of a major incident centred around the local hospital. Will and Sara have rushed to assist but Sara is also abducted, and Will is lucky to escape with his life. He vows to find her, and so starts the chase.
Karin Slaughter is a master storyteller, and this thriller confirms that well-deserved reputation. She is sometimes thought of as incorporating too much violence and being very non-pc, but I find this refreshing in these days when some people take offence at any minor infringement of perceived social norms.
This far into the series, both Will and Sara feel like old friends, so it's very easy to empathise with them and feel their pain. And there's a lot of pain in this book, including not only adults but children as well so, if you are in the least bit squeamish, my suggestion would be to avoid this particular publication.
The group which has kidnapped both Michelle and Sara have a single-minded objective which is not revealed until the very last pages. Having said that the plot is cohesive and bounces along rapidly, encouraging the reader to turn just one more page. It’s a great read and one to be 100% recommended to anyone who enjoys this genre.
