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.

Good story but narrator detracted

Good story with insight into society and the interaction of races. The reader gave the two main characters narrative voices that detracted from the characters.

- Joel "I have listened to over 250 books in the last 10 years. I tend to listen to certain authors and try to read all their books. I listen while exercising and driving which makes the time past enjoyable."

solid Scottoline

Scottoline's returned to her roots -- to the crisp, snappy stuff she started off, and lured me in, with. If you've been turned off lately by the Rosato & Associates saga, which was getting to sound like a bad mix of soap opera and "Cagney & Lacey," come back for this one. Bennie and the Airheads don't show up at all.
