''The Devil She Knows is nothing short of terrific. An absolutely original voice, and a story that grabs you by the throat and doesn't ever, ever, ever even think of letting go.'' --John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author
''Bill Loehfelm, a rising star in crime fiction, just keeps rising higher: The Devil She Knows is a taut, knowing story, and Maureen Coughlin is a hero for the ages, a character who jumps off the page and demands the reader's full attention and empathy from the very start.'' --Laura Lippman, multiple award-winning author
''At a bar, a tough city girl sees something she really shouldn't see, and immediately there's trouble -- well-dressed, connected, and brazenly confident trouble. A tough city girl can get out of trouble, right? Not if she's caught in a dark corner of Staten Island, New York City's most tribal and secretive borough. So begins Bill Loehfelm's page-ripping thriller, The Devil She Knows. It's a fast, rough ride you can't put down.'' --Colin Harrison, author of The Finder
