Devil's Corner

by Lisa Scottoline (read Mar 2006)
I was disappointed that this book didn't include the Rosato & Assts. Law Firm, but I got over it real soon. This was probably the her best work yet, but I do look forward to more books with the girls.

Assistant U.S. attorney Vicki Allegretti and her partner arrive for a planned meeting with a pregnant informant only to be met by two armed teenage boys. Vicki's longtime partner is killed as is the informant. Vick resolves to solve why the meeting went bad and who was behind the murder. Her search leads her to a run-down section of Philadelphia called Devil's Corner. She is aided in her quest by Reheema Bristow, who has her own reasons for helping Vicki.
