9780060787189: Devil's Corner

From inside dust jacket: "Vicki Allegretti always wondered what it would feel like to look into the barrel of a loaded gun, and now she knew."

From the very first sentence of Devil's Corner, Lisa, a New York Times bestselling author, launches an action-packed tale of murder and conspiracy set on the gritty streets of Philadelphia.

When prosecutor Vicki Allegretti arrives at a rowhouse to meet a confidential informant, she finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time—and is almost shot to death. She barely escapes with her life, but cannot save the two others gunned down before her disbelieving eyes. Stunned and heartbroken, Vicki tries to figure out how a routine meeting on a minor case became a double homicide.

Then she sets out to see justice done. She can identify the killers—now all she has to do is find them.

Vicki's suspicions take her to Devil's Corner, a city neighborhood teetering on the brink of ruin—thick with broken souls, innocent youth, and a scourge that preys on both. But the deeper Vicki probes, the more she becomes convinced that the murders weren't random and the killers were more ruthless than she thought. Agreeing with her is her office crush, golden boy Dan Malloy—who is unfortunately too married to give Vicki the kind of support a girl really needs.

When another murder thrusts Vicki together with an unlikely ally, she buckles up for a wild ride down a dangerous street—and into the cross-hairs of a conspiracy as powerful as it is relentless.

Set against the pulsing, real backdrop of a modern American city, with a storyline driven by the strong female characters and breakneck pace that has become her trademark, Devil's Corner is Lisa most satisfying novel yet.

From AudioFile:

When Assistant U.S. Attorney Vicki Alegretti and her partner meet with a confidential informant, a shooting takes place that kills the informant, the informant's unborn child, and Vicki's partner. To find the murderer, Vicki joins forces with Reheema, a disadvantaged black woman in search of her crack-addicted mother's killer, who devolves into the girlfriend from hell. Kate Burton uses vivid characterizations and a variety of light accents to depict a range of characters. Her portrayal of the bitingly humorous exchanges between Reheema and Vicki sounds authentic. Set in the drug-ridden streets of Devil's Corner, in West Philadelphia, the story, inspired by a real-life crack-cocaine trafficking case, has an eerie realism that is matched by Burton's seamless narration.
