The last widow.

Not her usual writing style. She rehashes parts of the story in different characters points of view, so you reread parts you already know about. Not a fan of this. Good book though. Love these characters.

Although different, certainly a favorite!

I have literally read every book by Karin slaughter, and this one did not disappoint! The writing style was different, yes... but, I actually liked the way she wrote different points of view from each of the characters! Good job k.s! Can’t wait for the next Sara and will story!

As an avid fan, this book was disappointment and a disservice to the readers. The author cared more about delivering a message than writing a good story about the characters we have come to love. Not subtle and sloppy. Will deserved better and so did the readers.
