Publisher's Summary

The ground-breaking thriller from the queen of crime drama and the basis for Steve McQueen's major motion picture. Widows is a fast-paced heist thriller with an all-female cast you won't forget.

Facing life alone, they turned to crime together....

A security van heist goes disastrously wrong, and three women are left widowed.

When Dolly Rawlins discovers her gang boss husband's plans for the failed hijack, an idea starts to form....

Could she and the other wives finish the job their husbands started?

As the women rehearse the raid, it becomes clear that someone else must have been involved.

But only three bodies were found in the wreckage.

Who was the fourth man?

And where is he now?

Loved this

Linda LaPlante never disappoints, and the storyline is compelling. I had several very late nights on the 'just one more chapter' principle. But what makes this audiobook exceptional is the narrator, Annie Aldington. She is amazing, and manages a unique and distinctive accent for each of the many characters, male and female. Fantastic, and very enjoyable.
