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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 1/30/2014

    " I enjoyed this mystery because of the characters. The story starts out trying to solve the murder of Vicki's friend and ends with her making an even better friend in Reehema, a suspect in one of her cases. The interaction between the two is sometimes humorous and keeps the story going. The book is worth a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine L | 1/29/2014

    " The pacing was slow at times, but I got hooked by the mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 1/16/2014

    " This was a fairly typical mystery/suspense book. It was the first I've read from her actually. But I enjoyed it. Good characters & nice writing style. It was a "filler" book, not one I'd recommend as great literature, but hey not everything is great literature! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 1/13/2014

    " There were times when the main character annoyed me with her refusal to take basic care of herself and her tendency to being TSTL at times. But, I hung in there and she began to annoy me less - not because I was accustomed to her behavior, but because she did finally act more sanely (but not totally sane). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monica Poveromo | 1/12/2014

    " Good mystery with an interesting woman as the main character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellenjsmellen | 1/8/2014

    " I like Scottoline, so of course, I'd like this one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Davecon | 12/17/2013

    " I got through the the first 100 pages and put it away because I didn't like the characters and the plot didn't excite me enough to want to grab the book and read on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vanessa | 12/7/2013

    " First time reading this author. I found this book interesting. I liked the characters and plot. Definitely will read more of her work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie Nash | 12/2/2013

    " Excellent book. This was a re-read for me. I loved the humour of the heroine....and Ms Scottoline continues to astound me at the intricacy of her plot lines. It was definitely a great read! I even shed a tear in the last few pages. I highly recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/30/2013

    " A fun read by one of my favorite authors. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sapna | 11/27/2013

    " This storyline was different: from an Assistant US Attorney's point of view, but it had too much gang-related and ATF-related info, and my attention waned. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Betty Ann Baer | 11/26/2013

    " This book takes place in the wrong part of town, thus the title. I really enjoy this author's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen | 7/14/2013

    " Legal thriller/mystery --- fast read. I enjoyed it quite a bit -- lots of action and twists & turns without giving away the ending. Enjoyable summer read! "

    " Lisa Scottoline is one of my favorite mystery writers, and this book doesn't disappoint. For those readers who like mysteries with female sleuths, this is a good one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 11/22/2012

    " meh. I didn't finish it. I did the audio book and the best part was the narrator's voice. "

    " Go Lisa!!!
    Very enjoyable read and I liked the characters and the story line...very real!

    I'd like to see another book with Vicki Allegretti as a lead character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi | 10/18/2010

    " Quick read but found the character a little too unbelievable. Would a lawyer really put herself into so much danger to solve a case? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terri | 9/10/2010

    " It was good for a nice, easy read...got slow in parts and a bit simplistic at times, but I enjoy the author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 9/8/2010

    " Audio version of Scottoline; reader is good except I didn't like the voice of main character, Vicki - too flip or too excited. Otherwise the character herself is likable - a little wild for a asst. DA. "
