Overview

The Devil She Knows (Maureen Coughlin Series #1) by Bill Loehfelm

"A taut, knowing story...Maureen Coughlin is a hero for the ages, a character who jumps off the page and demands the reader's full attention."—Laura Lippman, author of The Most Dangerous Thing

Maureen Coughlin's life isn't turning out as planned. At twenty-nine, she's stuck waiting tables in a Staten Island bar, and her only excitement comes from the next cigarette or a discreet dash of coke before her shift. But when a tryst between her coworker Dennis and an aspiring state senator named Frank Sebastian turns deadly, Maureen is jolted out of her routine. Soon she's on the run through the borough's seedy underbelly, desperate to stop Sebastian. She thinks she has seen the face of evil—and she doesn't know the half of it. A smoldering, hard-boiled crime story with a tough new heroine, The Devil She Knows has suspense to burn.
