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.

Follow on

After reading so many negative reviews on the narration of the first book, I actually didn’t enjoy this one as much . Although clearer the readers voice was too posh for Dolly. She was an east ender and would not have spoken in a posh voice. Spoilt it for me. Story was not so gripping either. But a good read nevertheless.

Squirmingly good yarn

This is the type of story that you get completely engrossed in, worrying about the characters between listens. At one time I couldn’t continue because I wanted to prevent them ......!
Highly recommended.

Brilliant

This book kept me enthralled to the very last page. I wanted to listen to it for many hours while knitting stuff. Multitasking? Can’t beat it. Exiting story a lot of swearing, no need for language like that, but all books these days have swearing. I really enjoyed this book, a bit gruesom towards the end but he dserved it.

Loved it

Listened to this book straight after finishing Widows. I enjoyed it better than the first book even though I loved Widows. I preferred the narrator for Widows Revenge as she used different accents for the characters which made the experiece more authentic.

Less good than the original

I was looking forward to listening to the follow up, I was surprised to hear so many tenuous coincidences. The ending was weak and contrived. The three minutes spent tying up loose ends seemed to me a lazy way of finishing a good threaded story.

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!
