is a weekly event that was originally hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place that spotlights upcoming releases that we´re eagerly anticipating with pure joy.

There are a lot of new books coming out each year and some of them catch my attention and will get a spotlight in my Waiting on Wednesday post. While some of them will finally end up here at my place, others won´t. I am joining Tressa at Wishful Endings and her meme Can´t-Wait Wednesday.

I am a Karin Slaughter fan since I discovered her Grant County series with the thriller Blindsighted.
And today I am presenting her newest thriller in her Georgia series. Good, it will be out very soon, but I only discovered it at the publisher´s website this morning. Yep, I know, sometimes … And because the German edition will be published first (don´t ask me why that is) and I could read both, languages I mean, I am presenting both editions.

A mysterious kidnapping.
On a hot summer night, a scientist from the Centers for Disease Control is grabbed by unknown assailants in a shopping center parking lot. Vanished into thin air, the authorities are desperate to save the doctor.
A devastating explosion.
One month later, the serenity of a sunny Sunday afternoon is shattered by the book of a ground-shaking blast – followed by another seconds later. One of Atlanta´s busiest and most important neighborhood´s has been bombed – the location of Emory University, two major hospitals, the FBI headquarters, and the CDC.
A diabolic enemy.
Medical examiner Sara Linton and her partner Will Trent, an investigator with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, rush to the scene – and into the heart of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to destroy thousands of innocent lives. When the assailants abduct Sara, Will goes undercover to save her and prevent a massacre – putting his own life on the line for the woman and the country he loves.

The German edition Die Letzte Witwe will be published by Harper Collins Germany on August 1, 2019.

And what are you waiting for? Let me know your thoughts about this one or leave me the link to your WoW and I check it out.

Happy reading & waiting on



  1. I've read a couple of Slaughter books, but nothing in this series. I have to admit, some of them have been pretty terrifying!

    1. Guess it depends on how you define "terrifying" *smile. I remember the marketing text for Blindsighted and was expecting kind of a horror thriller. When I was finished with the book I thought, well, and where was now the terrifying stuff? You see, it is all a matter of perspective *smile* Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I love a good thriller. And the CDC angle has me really curious- I like conspiracy type plots like that. :)

    1. Me too. One of my fav authors. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I haven't read many of Karin Slaughter's books. But this sounds interesting!

    Here’s my WoW!

    1. I know almost all of her books. Great thriller writer. Thanks for visiting.

  4. Great pick! I've only read a few of her thrillers so far but I've loved the ones I did read.

    1. I love her books too. Her Will Trent is one heck of a man *smile* Thanks for stopping by.
