I love Karin Slaugter's writing. The Last Widow is a brilliant and compelling read from start to finish. I didn't realise that this was a Will Trent novel, so pleasantly surprised from the get go!
The prologue starts in a normal day in a department store, the interaction between mother and daughter. The end of which leaves everything to the imagination "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."
Ms Slaughter writes in such a way it's impossible not to feel there with the characters. To feel their pain, their anguish and the dialogue is sharp and the description at times visceral.
When Sara gets taken at gunpoint, Will is left injured and determined to find her. The time is ticking, but bureaucracy and competing law enforcement bodies competing for jurisdiction.
With Will chasing after a home-grown terrorist group, there are timely comparisons to Charlottesville.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Thank you so much the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a complimentary electronic copy in return for an honest review.
