This book was ok, but not great. The main character, Vicki, was annoying and makes poor choices. The most annoying thing was her relationship with Dan., her married coworker. There is no way she should end up with him. Vicki is supposed to be a smart professional, but her personal life is definitely a mess. The most interesting character in the book is Reheema, the woman who Vicki feels was framed for a crime she didn't commit. Together, they team up to investigate the case. The whole plot just feels unrealistic. ( )

I got to the point where they've solved who killed Morty and wondered what the author would have to discuss in 12 more chapters. For whatever reason, she decided to have who killed Raheema's mother be a separate plot that still needed to be figured out in an extra 12 chapters. Unfortunately, this type of plot seems to be the author's norm in both books of hers that I have read.

I also didn't like wondering if Dan would dump Vicki for a promotion that made him her boss. ( )

This was an OK read. The ending was great. I picked the wrong person who I thought was the Killer. The surprise was good. ( )

Vicki Allegretti has to be the dumbest US Assistant District Attorney I've read. She constantly ignores danger, the rules and her superiors even after being suspended without pay with a cavalier attitude of "I can't believe I was so naive." The book has a grabber of a beginning when she goes to meet a confidential informant and there's a robbery in progress that results in the shooting deaths of the C.I. and her police partner. While on suspension she decides to talk with the C.I.'s mother who's a drug addict and gets her wallet with money and credentials stolen. What does she do? Vicki follows her to where she's going to buy her drugs and the woman is shot. It's one risky thing after another especially after befriending loose cannon Rheema. ( )

Devil’s Corner starts off with a bang as prosecutor Vicki Allegretti goes to meet an informant. She is almost killed by two gang members and finds her informant and partner dead. Vicki is relentless in trying to find out why her partner was killed. In the process, she teams up with Reheema, the person that she was trying to prosecute. Reheema has her own incentive when her mother gets murdered. They make an unlikely pair as they dig deeper and deeper and find themselves in more trouble. They run into gangs of drug-dealers and corrupt politicians.

This was a high quality work of fiction, something I have come to expect from Lisa Scottoline. Vicki Allegretti is very typical of the heroines that Scottoline uses in her novel. She’s a smart, scrappy white girl who gets in way over her head, but is fearless and unwavering and reaching her goals. The characterization in this novel is well done, not only with Vicki and Reheema, but also some of the side characters. Scottoline researched the subject well and often referred to the real life case that inspired this novel. This is a well done legal thriller that Scottoline and thriller fans will enjoy.
