About this author

Advance praise for DOING THE DEVIL'S WORK, out January 6, 2015.

"As he’s shown in the earlier installments in this series, Loehfelm has a real feel for capturing the nearly impenetrable culture of the NOPD . . . As impressive as his ability to evoke a sense of place is Loehfelm’s creation of a lead character of such remarkable depth and complexity. Equal parts toughness, vulnerability, naïveté, and street smarts, Coughlin has clearly established herself as one of the most compelling crime-fiction protagonists to appear in the last five years . . . she is one of a kind. There is no more fascinating beat cop in crime fiction, and when Coughlin earns her detective shield, the genre’s A-list stars better start watching their backs." —Booklist (s

Just finished this elegant gem about Fitzgerald’s final years in Hollywood. Beautiful but steel yourself for some heartbreak. #books #Hollywood #reading @vikingbooks

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.

“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
