Review - The Last Widow by Karin Slaughter

 Review - The Last Widow by Karin Slaughter

Michelle felt her mouth drop open.

A van slid to a stop beside her daughter.

The side door rolled open.

A man jumped out.

Michelle gripped her keys. She bolted into a full-out run, cutting the distance between herself and her daughter. She started to scream, but it was too late.

Ashley had run off, just like they had taught her to do. Which was fine, because the man did not want Ashley.

He wanted Michelle.

This book is so depressingly possible. The angry white terrorists, filled with hate, the media boosting their signal, the anti-vaxxers struck down by measles. It feels very current, very real and very scary because of it.

I've been loving Karin's stand alone novels over the last few years but it's so nice to get back to Will and Sara, and I love how their relationship develops in The Last Widow. Even though they're apart for most of the book, it really feels like their relationship is progressing in a real and fascinating way.

I also love the building tension and the utter horror when everything is finally revealed. The pacing, and the reveals, are absolutely spot on. I was gripped, and horrified.


The Last Widow by Karin Slaughter is out now, published by HarperCollins UK

I was given a review copy via Netgalley in return for an honest review.
