Fourth book. This is the book.
Whew! This is the first book by Slaughter I have read and it was great! Be prepared for an intense ride with this one. Lots of action, some uncomfortable material for sure but still a great read. After a few chapters in and researching her other books I realized that the main characters of Sarah and Will are in other books of hers though I do not feel you need to read those first to get a sense of who these characters are.
One should read "The Silent Wife" first since Sarah and Will are also highlighted in this novel. I don't like to read a book that precedes one with the same characters. However, it might be more enjoyable than "Silent Wife"?
I did not find this book nearly as interesting as any of her others.
Whew, 'The Last Widow' is an intense, complex ride of circumstances and emotions. The absolute fear of not knowing is palpable, and if you read it during the Coronavirus epidemic, as I did, that fear grows exponentially.
What I said in my review of Karin Slaughter's 'The Good Daughter' still stands true and is is oh so evident here in 'The Last Widow'. "In my opinion, Karin Slaughter is all about and excels at character development. It's like she draws a complete yet secret picture of her characters, completely colors over those pictures then slowly erases to reveal them to you."
Even with main characters we've come to know - and think we know well - over all the books, we are still learning what's deeper beneath the layers of Will Trent, Sara Linton and most all of the regular supporting characters.
'The Last Widow' is named #9 of the Will Trent series, but there is overlap with the Grant Count Series where we first met Sara Linton. You would be foolish to miss any book written by Karin Slaughter (well, except the two stand alone novels I didn't like at all which I consider merely a hiccup in exceptional writing).
ps: I greatly miss KCLS in all the Coronavirus closures . . .and I loved the bit about how to turn a cell phone light into a black light!
Not sure why anyone would choose to read this exceptionally brutal book. FIrst told from one victims perspective, then from another victims. An ugly story indeed.
A thriller with tension throughout the story. However, the long chapter on the various militia groups in the US and their past activities which involved the FBI was Just paged through by me. Likewise the descriptions of relationships among the characters. The author most likely used these paragraphs as fillers. I also didn't like the author's use of the "f" and "s" slang words. The author breaks the story into daily happenings and then provides differing perspectives by different characters in those sections which also prolong the storytelling. A good book to read when no interruptions are expected.
Seemed like a formula story.
