Publisher's Summary

The sequel to Lynda La Plante's groundbreaking thriller, Widows - now a major feature film.

Dolly, Linda, Shirley and Bella are back. And this time it's a fight to the finish. 

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.

Very disappointing novel

Didn't finish it, a first for La Plante; usually a great read, but squibbed it with this novel of shallow female angst and contrariness.

Excellent

As usual. A good follow on after Widows. I really enjoyed this book and the narrator was very good. Couldn’t stop listening. I’m thinking, ‘what will my next book be of, a romance, no, a drama, probably.

Gripping from the start!

Amanda Donohoe made the book funny and scary and brought all the characters to life with her brilliant accents and voices. Couldn’t stop listening!

Not as good as Widows

Apart from being not as good as Widows the narrator was better and more pleasant to listen to. The ending was disappointing well like oh sod it that will do sort of ending.

Lynda La Plant does it again...

Really enjoyed this book, good to catch up with Dolly... Couldn't put this one down, only down side for me was the long chapters... I cant just read a couple of pages I have to read chapter to chapter. Excellent narration by Amanda Donohoe.
