Book Description
 

DEVIL'S CORNER by Lisa Scottoline - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Lisa Scottoline.

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.

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.

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.

5 of 5 Devil's Corner / Mystery April 25, 2010
Reviewer: M. CLEMENT from COLLEGE STATION, TX United States  
This stand-alone thriller is Scottoline's 12th novel and her inspiration was based on a real-life jury trial.  The lead is Philadelphia assistant US attorney, Vicki Alegretti. While conducting a routine interview with an informant, Vicki's partner and the informant are killed. Vicki is determined to find the killer.  She teams up with  a beautiful black woman, Reheema, who lives in Devil's Corner and wants to track down the person's responsible for the death of her crack-addicted Mother. Of course Vicki does this without the knowledge or permission of her boss. In their investigation, the two realize that the murders appear to be connected. The closer they get to the drug ring responsible, the more dangerous their work becomes. The development of the main characters and Vicki's family is well-done. As is the development of Vicki's love life. This is a smart and sassy page turner and guaranteed to entertain.
