About this author

"THE DEVIL IN HER WAY is not only Bill Loehfelm's best book yet, but it may just the best mystery novel since James Lee Burke's THE TIN ROOF BLOWDOWN to have come out of post-Katrina New Orleans. I can offer no higher praise than to say that I finished it, and wanted to read more. A gem."
- John Connolly, best-selling author of WRATH OF ANGELS and BURNING SOUL

Look for Bill's first New Orleans-set novel, THE DEVIL IN HER WAY, the next in the Maureen Coughlin series, out as a Picador paperback in May 2014, Also currently available in hard cover and as an e-book.


Bill is the author of four novels, most recently, THE DEVIL IN HER WAY(2013), from Sarah Crichton Books/FSG. Also out now as a Picador paperback, the first Maureen Coughlin novel, TH...more


Today is That Day in New Orleans, that day nine years ago when the levees broke. This year, instead of elegy, I offer a new challenge.

Another excellent addition to the series. Delves deeper into the back story of the cold case than other previous Department Q novels. Horrifically sinister.

A barnburner. Does one my favorite things a thriller can do, hits you with a stunning EARLY twist that blows everything wide open for the rest of the book. The surprises keep coming after that, too.

Excellent book, though a tough read for this Katrina survivor (not fault of the author, just the subject matter). Heralded for its message about climate change, but thoughtful also on fear -- of the future, the past, the unknown, and other people, wh...more

This is breaking out (see what I did there?) as the book of the summer. I can see why. Devoured it in two sittings. Abbott is a rare talent. Your skin crawls, your heart and hormones lurch, and your moral compass spins in circles.
