filled star filled star filled star filled star star unfilled (240)

In the unputdownable sequel to Lynda La Plante’s revolutionary thriller Widows – now a major motion picture – we catch up with the four widows in Brazil after pulling off an incredible heist.

But the danger is far from over. Dolly’s husband, Harry Rawlins, is alive and well and looking to extract vengeance on his wife for cleaning him out and successfully carrying out the heist he so carefully planned. In Widows: Revenge love is war and scores must be settled.

After learning that her husband, Harry, has faked his own death, Dolly realizes that the widows’ dream of a new life with the money they stole is in peril. She knows that Harry will stop at nothing to find them and get the money as he chases them from Brazil back to London.

Widows: Revenge is a terrific follow up to a story that has enticed successive generations of readers since the series debuted in 1983. With the adaptation of Widows into a major motion picture, the story of these gritty and courageous widows lives on.
