Summary

The final act in the best-selling Widows series.

After serving a lengthy sentence for the murder of her husband, Dolly Rawlins is free from prison. And she's only got one thing on her mind: the diamonds she stashed before the police caught her.

But there are people waiting for Dolly on the outside ­- tough ex-prisoners who know about the diamonds, and they all want a cut. 

Also waiting for Dolly is DS Mike Withey. He holds her personally responsible for the death of his sister in the diamond raid 10 years earlier. And he wants her back inside.

Dolly Rawlins has other plans. But can she realise the dream that kept her going all those years in prison and avoid those who are after her?

Absolutely Gripping

Can this get any better? Dolly Rawlins at her best, wiser, more determined, cunning and razor sharp mind. Lynda has excelled in bringing back her character 10 years later. I find myself matching the character to Ann Mitchell.
The only issue that I have is there's no mention of Bella who in the last book had left for Rio.

another La Plante Classic

having not watched the She's Out TV series this was the first book of the trilogy where I had no idea what to expect but was not at all disappointed!! the tales of Dollly Rollins are so well written and have the right mix of Drama, Humour and plot twists.

quality declining

Lynda La Plante usually stands for quality, but these stories are getting a bit dated. Certain stereotypes are just no longer plausible, such as women who are really not smart enough to survive even the slightest challenge. I got a bit fed up with twists and turns as a result of acts of sheer stupidity.

Excellent

Great characters drawn in depth.Excellent plotting but still easy to follow with great narration.Worth listening or reading ‘Buried’ which is not a sequel as such but a good follow on.

Good story to finish the Widows series

An enjoyable story and a brilliant end to the Widows series. An Intriguing story and it completes the series well. The narrator was good at drawing you into the story and making you feel everything was happening and building while you listened. I enjoyed the original Widows TV series and always wondered how the character of Dolly Rowlings would develop

Didn't like the ending

Story us good. I didn't like some if the interaction of the widows or the way they spoke to each other. The ending was disappointing. I'm left wanting to understand.

Fascinating listen!

I'm just going to say right up front that I didn't like the ending. It wasn't anything that I could have been prepared for and it made me sad.
Having said that, we can talk about what a fantastic story it was and how much I enjoyed listening to it. These ladies are so unique and fleshed out you feel like you know them. Each with her own criminal gifts as well as a true heart.
You find yourself rooting for them as they go about the business of planning the next headline grabbing heist. The ups and downs as they interact with each other keep your interest perked and Dolly is a hell of a ring leader. It's obvious that she loves the ladies she's plotting with even if she keeps them in line with a firm hand.
Then they bring in the little girls and you'll find yourself laughing and crying and truly realizing how much love the ladies have to give, how deeply it's been buried and how amazing it is that all that love gets to see the light of day!
