Assistant US Attorney Vicki Allegretti and her partner, Bob Morton (Morty) had arrived at a Philadelphia townhouse, to meet with an informant. Vicki had never met this woman, and while waiting for Morty to finish his cigarette outside, she made her way inside, calling for the woman. But what she saw instead shocked her to the core…a wild looking teenager, brandishing a wicked looking gun, and aiming it at her! In the ensuing minutes, she almost lost her life, and was witness to a horrifying murder…could it get any worse?

As the investigation immediately got underway, Vicki was determined to find the killers. She had seen them, she just needed to locate them. Making her way through any leads she could find, she went to see Reheema Bristow, who was in jail awaiting prosecution on drug related charges, but with no proof, she was released. As Vicki and Reheema formed an uneasy alliance, more murders occurred and the identity of the killers didn’t seem any closer.

The action, the drug related crimes, the criminals….they all seemed to go back to the seedy side of town, a place called Devil’s Corner. Vicki was stunned to realize this was the place her father had called home when he was a child! But the danger that Vicki and ultimately Reheema were in, was intense, and at times it didn’t seem like they would escape with their lives.

I enjoyed this book, the extreme pace, the twists and turns, Vicki’s strength and determination to find justice. The book was full of suspense and compelling characters and the plot twist at the end surprised me.

For those who enjoy Lisa Scottoline, this one is highly recommended.
