Widows’ Revenge, Lynda La Plante

Widows’ Revenge opening line: Bella had recommended Mr Jarrow to Dolly as one of the best men in London, and so Dolly had made an appointment.

Widows' Revenge

My blurb:

Dolly think she has it all figured out. But it seems like the other women are going to find a way to thwart her plans. Nothing is really working out the way she wants it to. And against all odds she has to find a week to extract revenge. This time leaving no loose ends.

Widows’ Revenge

Dolly, Linda, Shirley and Bella are back. And this time it’s a fight to the finish. The sequel to Lynda La Plante’s groundbreaking thriller, Widows.

Against all the odds, Dolly Rawlins and her gangland widows managed the impossible: a heist their husbands had failed to pull off – at the cost of their lives.
But though they may be in the money, they’re far from easy street.
Shocked by her husband’s betrayal, Dolly discovers Harry Rawlins isn’t dead. He knows where the four women are and he wants them to pay. And he doesn’t just mean getting his hands on the money.
The women can’t keep running. They have to get Harry out of their lives for good. But can they outwit a criminal mastermind who won’t hesitate to kill?
Especially when one of them has a plan of her own…to kill or be killed.

My verdict:

I had not read Widows, the prequel to this book and appreciated the story so far extract at the beginning of the novel. However, I would recommend you read Widows first to have a fuller understanding of the story line. This was a well written novel worth adding to your reading list.
