“A furious woman was capable of inflicting immense psychological damage, the kind that stuck around long after the wounds healed.”

Kleblanc

“She wasn‘t against religion so much as the people who sought to use it as a weapon. One of the things that had drawn Sara to medicine was the immutability of facts. The atomic number for helium would always be two. The triple point of water was indisputably the basis of the definition for the kelvin. You didn‘t need faith to believe either of these things. You just needed math.”

Sara has been taken prisoner and Will is forced undercover, on a case in which thousands of lives are at stake. book is too political for me. Slaughter is a great storyteller but we love to be entertained by by the exploits of Sara and Will's relationship in Grant County instead of Neo-Nazi‘s, domestic terrorism and homebred militia which we get enough of on the nightly news.

EadieB This is not the direction I was hoping this great series would take and I hope Slaughter can bring the next in the series back home to Grant County. I would recommend this book to those who like to read about political happenings in the world but if you want to read about Will and Sara in Grant County, then you will be as disappointed as I am. #TheLastWidow #KarinSlaughter 1mo
Andrew65 That‘s a shame given the strong series around Sara‘s relationships and Will coping with his learning disabilities. 1mo

EadieB @Andrew65 I know! Why doesn‘t she stick to a proven formula? 1mo
Andrew65 @EadieB That‘s what we read the series for! Both series Sara is the main driving force. 1mo
EadieB @Andrew65 Maybe she'll get enough complains and return back to Grant County and their relationship. 1mo

Phenomenal! At some point maybe I'll stop being shocked when Slaughter exceeds my already high expectations, every single time. Here's hoping she continues to crank out these books, bc I don't know how I'll ever say bye to Will Trent 🤗

I've been falling down the rabbit hole that is start/stopping library books and feeling guilty because of how long I was on the waitlist for them. So I decided to put my Kindle to the side for a sec and reach for a pinch hitter that I'd been saving, the most recent Karin Slaughter 👏🏽

I can‘t find words for how good this book is!! My heart raced all throughout and it was more thrilling since it seems so possible.

>>I was CONVINCED that Karin S couldn‘t write better books after finishing the Grant County series. I was too heartbroken to start the Will Trent books right away. So I skipped every Will Trent before this one and just jumped right in here. Now I HAVE to go back and re-start with Will Trent #1. She is the very best!!

Scorpioseah I started this book and halfway through. After finishing this , I am going to go back to #1 same as you lol . 2mo

Man, this one was good! The storyline was pretty terrifying but it was to be expected since it‘s a Karin Slaughter book. I really hope I don‘t have to wait another three years for the next book in the series. I love all the main characters, Will and his awkwardness, Amanda and her no-nonsense attitude, and Faith and her sarcasm.

I‘m not a violent person. I have never wanted to punch someone in the face so hard and he‘s not even a real person. Excellent, terrifying (because it‘s horrifyingly plausible), extremely well researched, rollercoaster, heart wrenching, pulse quickening, stay up late, dark and twisty, read. Can‘t wait for the next one! Thank you Littens for introducing me to Karin Slaughter! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Yes, that's a pumpkin spice latte. Helloooo, September and the change in seasons. 🍁
Also, this book is a page turner! I really enjoy Karin Slaughter but I haven't read the series in their entirety. I started with the book before this one in the Will Trent series and haven't read any in the Grant County series, but I didn't have a problem orienting myself with the characters or the action. I do plan to go back and read more of both series soon.

Love Love Love this series! (I recommend starting with Grant County series and then Will Trent series - I like to follow chronology) The author has not disappointed me so far in her thrilers, and the characters are super engaging. The plot of this is very good and current. Please tell me you're writing the next one, @karinslaughterauthor!

All I have to say, is before you start this book make sure you have everything you need at hand, peace and quiet, a comfortable place to read, bc you want want to put this down. One if the best series out there. Slaughter continues to hit it out of the park with the Will Trent Series.

Another impeccable read from Karin Slaughter. My only complaint is that it could‘ve been longer! I was a huge fan of her Grant County books & was devastated when Jeffrey was killed, but I think Sara has found her perfect match in Will. That‘s one of the best things about a Slaughter book, it‘s not just crime, it‘s a drama too. She writes complicated characters extremely well, not just the good but confused, but also the sick & twisted. 5⭐️

TrishB Good review 👍🏻 it‘s her characters I love. 5mo

For my first non-audio novel in a month😱I couldn‘t go past the new Will Trent/Sara Linton by my favourite crime writer, Karin Slaughter. So far I‘m 6 chapters in & loving it! Sara & Will are at a family lunch when explosions rock downtown Atlanta. Enroute to the bombing, they stop at a car accident and Sara is taken hostage by the bombers, who already have a CDC doctor they‘d taken a month earlier. An injured Will goes on the warpath.

I did A Thing, and I know you all will understand. I‘m a long time Karin Slaughter fan girl (actually read her first book on the plane coming to visit Colorado for the first time) and I‘m jealous that the UK gets to read this before the US does.

So I ordered it from the UK.

And then paid more than the cost of the book for expedited shipping so I wouldn‘t have to wait three weeks to read it 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️
