Book Review – The Last Widow by Karin Slaughter #audiobookreview #20booksofsummer

Goodreads Synopsis:

A mysterious kidnapping

On a hot summer night, a scientist from the Centers for Disease Control is grabbed by unknown assailants in a shopping center parking lot. Vanished into thin air, the authorities are desperate to save the doctor.

A devastating explosion

One month later, the serenity of a sunny Sunday afternoon is shattered by the boom of a ground-shaking blast—followed by another seconds later. One of Atlanta’s busiest and most important neighborhood’s has been bombed—the location of Emory University, two major hospitals, the FBI headquarters, and the CDC.

A diabolical enemy

Medical examiner Sara Linton and her partner Will Trent, an investigator with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, rush to the scene—and into the heart of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to destroy thousands of innocent lives. When the assailants abduct Sara, Will goes undercover to save her and prevent a massacre—putting his own life on the line for the woman and the country he loves.

My Opinion:

I started my Will Trent journey in January of this year, in a quest to catch up and be ready for this book, The Last Widow. I know most readers have been waiting patiently, or maybe not so patiently, many years for the Will Trent series to continue. Procrastination on my part has really paid off!

In an effort to not spoil this story for you I will keep this review brief. This story is a mixed bag of terrifying, heart-breaking, and horrendous events. It is a huge puzzle that needs solving and keeps you in the dark as to what is really going on. There are kidnappings, rape, white supremacists, and more. It also includes a very current hot topic, that depending on what side you are on, evokes very strong feelings.

Will Trent and Sara Linton, I just love this dynamic duo! They both have personal baggage and issues to work out, but their love for each other rings loud and clear.

If you have not read this series, each book does read well as a standalone, but I highly encourage you to start at the very beginning. There is not a bad book in the bunch!
