The Last Widow: A Novel | Karin Slaughter
19 posts | 5 read | 1 reading | 22 to read
Investigator Will Trent and medical examiner Sara Linton must stop a mysterious group of domestic terrorists planning to unleash a deadly epidemic in this electrifying and all too plausible thriller. On a serene summer Sunday, a routine admission for a run-of-the-mill surgery at Atlanta’s Emory Hospital goes tragically wrong, setting off a catastrophic wave of destruction that sends the facility and the surrounding area into lockdown. One of the city’s largest and most prestigious institutions, Emory is situated near the Centers for Disease Control, the FBI counter-terrorism headquarters, and a large children’s hospital. Anything that happens there has repercussions for the entire city, the state of Georgia, and possibly the entire nation. A few miles away, medical examiner Sara Linton is enduring an awkward lunch with her mother, her aunt, and her boyfriend Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. But the sudden wail of sirens blaring in the distance cuts the uncomfortable get-together short, drawing her and Will to the scene. Both Sara and Will are seasoned public servants trained to help in an emergency. Dedicated and courageous, they run towards a crisis while others are running away. But on this warm summer day, that instinct will lead them into lethal danger. Within an hour the situation at Emory has spiraled out of control—Sara has been taken prisoner and Will forced undercover, on a case in which thousands of lives are at stake. That “routine admission” at Emory was the opening maneuver in a perilous game of hunter and prey that leads him out of Atlanta into the Appalachians, to a remote compound where a radical group has hatched a diabolical plan for murder on a massive scale that will rock the nation if it isn’t stopped.

After getting a not so pleasant result yesterday I decided to treat myself! I feel like this is worth every penny, especially since it‘s a signed addition! I‘m really loving the Will Trent series. 😀

kspenmoll It‘s always a good idea to treat yourself! Hope you are ok. Hugs. 2d
MicheleinPhilly I hope all is OK Elisabeth. ❤️ 2d

eanderson @kspenmoll @MicheleinPhilly definitely ok, despite having to be on a very strict diet for the rest of my pregnancy. It feels awful when you just want a really good piece of pizza but it will be worth it!!! 💕🤗 @TrishB I like to think so too! 😀 2d
MicheleinPhilly Ugh. I‘ll send you a giant pizza after you deliver! ☺️ 2d
TrishB I can‘t eat pizza at all, so we‘ll share the misery!! Take care 💕 2d
eanderson @MicheleinPhilly lol! Perfect!!! 👍 @TrishB sounds good to me! 😟 Lol! Will do! 2d

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. 1mo

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 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

TrishB It will be WORTH it! Just finished today, brilliant read. 2mo
LibrarianJen I would totally do something like that. 2mo
