About this Article

When we first met Maureen Coughlin in 2011's "The Devil She Knows," the petite Staten Island, N.Y., cocktail waitress was drifting through life, fearful that she lacked the gumption to ever become anything more. But by the end of that noir crime novel, Bill Loehfelm's third, Maureen's confrontation with a mobbed-up politician who meant her harm had irrevocably changed her. Now, two years later in "The Devil in Her Way," we find her transplanted to New Orleans and freshly graduated from the city's police academy.
