From the rave review for THE DEVIL SHE KNOWS in PEOPLE magazine:
“Loehfelm, who’s written two other thrillers about Staten Island’s underbelly, elevates this rousing tale with riveting characters—especially Maureen, who brandishes a knife as convincingly as she worries about becoming a cat lady.” —Ellen Shapiro.
The starred review for THE DEVIL SHE KNOWS in BOOKLIST:
Character drives this follow-up to Loehfelm’s fine Bloodroot (2009); the deeply conflicted Maureen, in particular, is brilliantly developed. She’s tough and street-smart but vulnerable. She’s brave, at times foolishly so, but lives with gnawing fears—of being alone, of becoming a “lifer” waitress, of her own inadequacies, of never finding a man she can trust. Page by page, Sebastian grows from odious pol to memorable monster. Waters, seen through Maureen’s eyes, is honorable but overmatched against the vicious, cunning Sebastian. Even Staten Island, which Loehfelm brilliantly sketched in Bloodroot, becomes a character in this one: seedy, brooding, and sometimes deadly. But, finally, it’s still Maureen, as compelling a character as this reviewer expects to seethis year, who makes The Devil She Knows a must for crime-fiction lovers.

“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, NYTbestselling author of I’D KNOW YOU ANYWHERE and THE MOST DANGEROUS THINGS
“Bill Loehfelm’s THE DEVIL SHE KNOWS is nothing short of terrific. An absolutely original voice, a deeply flawed and lovable protagonist, and a story that grabs you by the throat and doesn’t ever ever ever even think of letting you go. “ – John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of A PLAGUE OF SECRETS and DAMAGE
“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 RISK and THE FINDER
