  "Too Put-downable" by ebach (see profile) 09/06/11

In Lisa Scottoline's DEVIL'S CORNER, Vicki is a U.S. prosecutor trying, first, to find the killers of her partner and of a potential wittness. Then somebody else is murdered, and she takes it upon herself to find that killer, too. She's aided in her quest by Reheema, a gorgeous woman who just got out of jail.

The majority of DEVEL'S CORNER involves Vicki's and Reheema's exploits. Scottoline does a great job with their dialogs, and you've got to enjoy the book for that. But it's not her best.

Another story going on in the book is the romance between Vicki and another prosecutor, Dan, a married man she spends too much time with after work. It's predictable.

Overall, I'd say it isn't a bad book, but it is disappointing. I know Scottoline can do better--and she does.

Although DEVIL'S CORNER is a who-done-it with great dialog, I didn't find it thrilling; it's too put-downable.
