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.

"Entertaining and exciting." (Booklist)
"Scottoline's ability to mix humor with serious subject matter, combined with her intense research of inner city drug trafficking and a side plot involving Vicki's love life, make for compelling entertainment." (Publishers Weekly)
This book was so entirely different from Lisa Scottoline's other books. The characters were not believable and the main character did things I can' believe anyone in their right mind would do. The plot was boring and predictable and completely unrealistic. In fact, everything about this book was unrealistic including the dynamics (if one can call it that) between the characters and, even more noticeably, the motivations of the characters. It was as if this book was written by someone else entirely. I am really bumfuzzled by this one. One star is one too many.
I drive an hour to my office as an attorney. I have done this for 14 years. I would not be able to do this without my books on tape.
Not up to her usual standards. Not crisp and witty, rather mundane. Very disappointing.
