About this item
When Maureen Coughlin first appeared in The Devil She Knows (2011), the New Orleans Times-Picayune called her unforgettable and the character of the year. Booklist named The Devil She Knows one of 2011s ten best thrillers and declared Maureen as compelling a character as this reviewer expects to see this year.
Now shes back in Bill Loehfelms new thriller, The Devil in Her Way, and her life has changed in more ways than one: Shes starting over in New Orleans as a newly minted member of the police force.
Kicking off her final week of field training, Maureen takes a punch from a panicked suspect bursting out of an apartment. Her training officer laughs it off, and the incident even yields a small victory: the cops recover a stash of pot and guns. But out on the street, on the fringes of the action, Maureen sees something sinister transpire between two neighborhood boys that leaves her shaken, and she knows theres more to the story than shes seen. As we follow Maureens dangerous hunt for answers, Loehfelm leads us around New Orleanss most hidden corners and into its darkest outposts.
Bill Loehfelm is the real deala lauded thriller writer in the modern tradition of Dennis Lehane, Richard Price, and Michael Connelly. He knows the voices of his city. Like Lehanes Boston, Prices New York City, or Connellys Los Angeles, Loehfelms New Orleans leaps off the page, as vibrant, flawed, and unruly as his reborn, fire-hearted protagonist. In The Devil in Her Way, Loehfelms talents flourish, and the result is a ruthless and propulsive thriller.
