From the starred review in BOOKLIST for LET THE DEVIL OUT, dropping on July 5:

“Not only has Loehfelm created the most compelling, complex patrol cop in the genre—part take-no-prisoners badass, part too-sensitive-for-the street rookie—he has also re-energized New Orleans as a setting for the best in crime fiction, going well beyond the cliches … —edgy, dangerous, but pulsing with life. Maureen Coughlin is as good as it gets.”


Get DOING THE DEVIL'S WORK as a Picador paperback:

“After being warned about falling in love with the power of the job, [Maureen Coughlin] finds herself wrestling with ethical issues that fictional cops, especially fictional female ones, rarely talk about, leaving that stuff to real-life cops--and smart guys like Bill Loe

“What must it be like, Maureen wondered, to be that size? To be that strong? To know you can show your back to every dark stairwell, doorway, and alley. To have people stare at their shoes and not at your tits when you caught them looking. For people to step aside and not “accidentally” brush up against you when they passed in close quarters. What’s it like to be that big instead of five-four, a hundred pounds, and female? For one week, for one day, I wanna be that size. A guy that size.”
Bill Loehfelm, The Devil She Knows: A Novel
