About The Last Widow
by Karin Slaughter

Publication Date: August 20th 2019
Number of Pages: 448
Series: Will Trent Series
It begins with an abduction.
The routine of a family shopping trip is shattered when Michelle Spivey is snatched as she leaves the mall with her young daughter. The police search for her, her partner pleads for her release, but in the end…they find nothing. It’s as if she disappeared into thin air.
A month later, on a sleepy Sunday afternoon, medical examiner Sara Linton is at lunch with her boyfriend Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. But the serenity of the summer’s day is broken by the wail of sirens.
Sara and Will are trained to help in an emergency. Their jobs – their vocations – mean that they run towards a crisis, not away from it. But on this one terrible day that instinct betrays them both. Within hours the situation has spiralled out of control; Sara is taken prisoner; Will is forced undercover. And the fallout will lead them into the Appalachian mountains, to the terrible truth about what really happened to Michelle, and to a remote compound where a radical group has murder in mind…
I have to say that reading this book has somehow improved my scientific knowledge and I am mesmerized by the amount of research that was done by Karin Slaugher not only scientifically but also historically. I enjoyed reading this book even though it is Book 9 of the Will Trent series and the first one I’ve read from the series (definitely will get all the books from the series and start from the beginning). The story line is very gripping. I did cry a couple of times throughout the book. I am looking forward to reading more books from Karin Slaughter but first I need to catch up the series and I cant wait to get my hands on all her books.
