Publisher's Summary

When prosecutor Vicki Allegretti arrives at a rowhouse to meet a confidential informant, she finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time, and is almost shot to death. She barely escapes with her life, but cannot save the two others gunned down before her disbelieving eyes. Stunned and heartbroken, Vicki tries to figure out how a routine meeting on a minor case became a double homicide.Vicki's suspicions take her to Devil's Corner, a city neighborhood teetering on the brink of ruin; thick with broken souls, innocent youth, and a scourge that preys on both. But the deeper Vicki probes, the more she becomes convinced that the murders weren't random and the killers were more ruthless than she thought.
When another murder thrusts Vicki together with an unlikely ally, she buckles up for a wild ride down a dangerous street, and into the cross-hairs of a conspiracy as powerful as it is relentless.

Disappointed

This book was so entirely different from Lisa Scottoline's other books. The characters were not believable and the main character did things I can' believe anyone in their right mind would do. The plot was boring and predictable and completely unrealistic. In fact, everything about this book was unrealistic including the dynamics (if one can call it that) between the characters and, even more noticeably, the motivations of the characters. It was as if this book was written by someone else entirely. I am really bumfuzzled by this one. One star is one too many.

disappointing

Not up to her usual standards. Not crisp and witty, rather mundane. Very disappointing.
