‘Without doubt one of the best writers working today’ KARIN SLAUGHTER
A thrilling sequel to the ground-breaking Widows from the bestselling screenwriter and author Lynda La Plante.
After serving a lengthy sentence for the murder of her husband, Dolly Rawlins is set free from prison, with only one thing on her mind - the six million in diamonds she stashed prior to her imprisonment.
Waiting for Dolly is a group of women who all served time with her. They know about the diamonds and they want a cut. Also waiting is a detective sergeant in the Metropolitan Police. He holds her personally responsible for the death of his sister in the diamond raid ten years earlier. And now he wants her back inside.
Dolly Rawlins has other plans: to realise the dream that kept her going for years in prison. But against such determined opposition, the fantasy soon turns into a very different, tragic and violent reality . . .
