When prosecutor Vicki Allegretti arrives at a rowhouse to meet a confidential informant, she finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. She’s almost shot to death, and two others are gunned down before her disbelieving eyes. How did a routine investigation become a double homicide?
She can identify the killers, now all she has to do is to find them. The deeper she probes, the more she realizes that she’s dealing with ruthless killers. Her suspicions take her to Devil’s Corner, a place on the brink of ruin – thick with broken souls, innocent youth and a scourge that plays on both. Sadly, her delectable colleague Dan Molloy is too married to give her the kind of support she really needs, but when she teams up with an unlikely ally, she buckles up for a wild ride down a dangerous street. And into the crossfire of a powerful and relentless conspiracy.
Set against the pulsing backdrop of Philadelphia, with a storyline driven by strong female characters and the breakneck pace that has become her trademark, DEVIL’S CORNER is Lisa Scottoline’s most satisfying novel yet.
‘Lisa Scottoline has been added to my list of must-read authors. Her stories are filled with teeth-gnashing suspense, her characters are compelling, and her humor cuts to the heart of the issue with laserlike accuracy’
