Short Spoiler Free Review (longer review below)
“A security van heist goes disastrously wrong and three women are left widowed.When Dolly discovers her late husbands plans for the failed hijack, an idea starts to form…Could she and the other widows finish the job their husbands started?”
(Mystery / Drama)
Two word review: very exciting.
Ok, this book is an amazing drama/thriller type book that puts women in the highlight. I love the fact that it’s a group of women leading this story rather than men like it usually is.
The story builds up slowly but there is action from the start and it never gets boring. The book is about a heist that a group of men tried to complete but failed, killing themselves. Their widows decide to take over and complete the heist on their own. I was on the edge of my seat reading this book, there’s so many twists and turns and I just couldn’t wait to get through it. It was such an exciting read.
I’m not sure if it’s only me but I love stories about heists, it always gives me ideas on how I could get away with robbing a bank one day 🙄😂! I loved reading about all the planning and build up of the heist and Lynda La Plante did not disappoint one bit.
I was however, a little disappointed to find out there is a sequel to this book and I’m unsure I will it because I quiet liked where the story ended but i guess there was still some unanswered questions 🤷🏼♀️.

OH MY GOD, what a twist?! Did you expect it? Did you guess what was going to happen? I must admit that I didn’t expect it until I put the pieces together and then I was like holy sh*t! HARRY RAWLINS IS ALIVE! After I figured it out I was kind of wondering whether him and Dolly where going to team up and take all the money in the end and I was so glad when the girls got to Rio in one piece.
I just loved how all of them came from different backgrounds and they all came together to pull this heist off and did it amazingly! Anyone want to team up? 😂
Even at the end of the book when they were going to Rio there was still some on edge moments, like when Dollys case was about to be search and Shirley was questioned, ahhh so much drama!
I loved this story though and would definitely recommend it if you love heist/bank robbery stuff 😝!
