Speak of the devil, and he will appear…

On the same night that prosecutor Anna Curtis gets engaged to chief homicide prosecutor Jack Bailey, a terrifying man known as Diablo leads a vicious attack on a brothel. Anna is assigned to investigate and bring “the devil” to justice. The challenge of her day job contrasts with the sweetness in her personal life, as she plans her wedding and shifts from being a single woman with a secret boyfriend to one half of a DC power couple and stepmother to a six-year-old girl.

The investigation soon leads Anna to MS-13, one of America’s most brutal street gangs. As she uncovers the full extent of Diablo’s depravity, she also discovers long-buried secrets, official lies, and a terrifying danger that comes straight to her doorstep. The facts she unearths in the case not only threaten her plans for a happy marriage but everything she thought she knew about the past and present, good and evil, and the price of justice.

In this gripping thriller, Allison Leotta draws on her experience as a prosecutor to take readers into the back rooms of the US Attorney’s Office, the hidden world of the Witness Protection Program, and the secret rituals of one of America’s most dangerous gangs. Praised by top writers in the genre, from David Baldacci to George Pelecanos, Leotta deftly weaves fact and fiction to create her best novel yet.
