Maureen Coughlin's life has changed in more ways than one. She is starting over in New Orleans as a newly minted member of the police force, but her transition from cocktail waitress to cop hasn't gone as smoothly as she'd hoped. To her commanding officer's amusement, Maureen kicks off her final week of field training by taking a punch to the face as a panicked suspect flees an apartment building, leaving behind several guns and a stash of pot. But out on the street, on the fringes of the action, Maureen sees something transpire that leaves her shaken, and she's sure there's more to this story than meets the eye.
As Maureen embarks on a dangerous hunt for answers, Bill Loehfelm guides us around the Crescent City's hidden corners and into its darkest outposts. The result is The Devil in Her Way: a propulsive thriller as electrifying as the city itself.
