This is almost an old-time gothic romance, with murder, a mysterious caller, a wealthy hero, and an intrepid police detective set on an island. The characters are well-drawn, the plot twisting, and the ending not predictable. All in all, a very satisfying read, and the author ties up all the numerous plot lines. Well done!

Tormenting, haunting, and really, really good!

I found this book to be a great suspense with a heart-wrenching plot. I was able to really get in to the heads of the characters and the author did a great job setting up place and time to make the story come alive. I also really enjoyed that it kept me guessing until the very end. Well done! It reminded of a recent release by Martha Powers called DEATH ANGEL, in which the mother of a murdered girl searches relentlessly for her child's killer despite deep deceptions and imminent danger. Also an emotional and thrilling read.

The Widow

As with all of Ms Neggers books, it grabs you from the first and builds from there. I recommend this book to anyone that loves mystery and romance in the same book.

Great Read as Usual!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading THE WIDOW this last weekend. The character of Abigail was particularly compelling, I was hooked from the opening scene! A great thriller from my favorite author!

fabulous private investigative tale

In Mount Desert, Maine, FBI Special Agent Chris Browning and his wife Boston homicide detective Abigail are on their honeymoon when someone murders him. Seven years later, the homicide is unsolved and classified as a cold case by local authorities. Thirtyish Abigail has not been able to find closure as long as her spouse's killer walks free. She decides she has waited too long so she resolves to return to the killing scene to investigate. She begins questioning locals starting with Owen Garrison, who had informed her that Chris was dead. Most of the locals offer nothing while the summer people offer less. However though emotionally dying with every step, Abigail refuses to back off even when someone tries to kill her. THE WIDOW is a fabulous private investigative tale (Abigail may be a cop but she is on her own) in which the heroine seeks closure, but finds a myriad of plausible suspects instead. The Maine background adds to the feeling of New England stoic silence that seems to hammer at Abigail's inquiries. Though a romantic subplot with Owen seems more a throw in to fans of that genre, Carla Neggers provides a strong thriller. Harriet Klausner
