Teaser Tuesday: The Last Widow

Karin Slaughter’s new novel has just hit the shelves in the book stores. Before reading her new novel, I thought I would do a quick catch-up on Will Trent’s story in The Last Widow.

The teaser I am sharing with you today comes from the prologue of the story. As is usual with Karin Slaughter’s novels, you are drawn straight into the action:

“Michelle felt her mouth drop open.

A van slid to a stop beside her daughter.

The side door rolled open.

A man jumped out.

Michelle gripped her keys. She bolted into a full out run, cutting the distance between herself and her daughter.

She started to scream, but it was too late.

Ashley had run off, just like they had told her to do.

Which was fine, because the man did not want Ashley.

He wanted Michelle.” (p7, Harper Collins, 2019)
