The Last Widow - Book Review - Incredible Opinions

The Last Widow  ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Author - Karin Slaughter
Publisher - Harper Collins

My first book by Karin Slaughter; hence first in Will Trent and Sara Linton series. I have yet to read other 8 before this but each book is standalone and can be read in any order.

This thriller/crime mystery starts from the kidnapping of a scientist from Centres of Diseased Control and a month later 2 explosions shook the Emory University and a doctor, Sara Linton is kidnapped. Sara's partner, Will Trent is an undercover officer who goes undercover to find Sara and reveal a deadly conspiracy which is being planned to destroy thousands of innocent lives.

This book is not like any other thriller I have read in terms of length of the book. Its 446 pages completely justify the story Karin penned down. I am so impressed with the research the author has done in terms of ex-army personnels returning from war trodden areas and turning into radicals. Karin's story writing capabilities are unquestionable when she weaves Nazi ideology in the plot.

The initial scenes are retold from another character's perspective and it was something different I have noticed and it wasn't a miss. Overall, it was a good read and I'd recommend it to fellow readers who like to read crime stories. I'll definitely look forward to reading more of Karin's work.
