Overview

Meet New Orleans beat cop Maureen Coughlin

The Edgar Award winner Megan Abbott calls Coughlin a hero with whom we will go anywhere. She s complicated tough and naive, street-smart and vulnerable and, way too often, reckless. As Let the Devil Out opens, she s in rough shape. Just a rookie, she s already been suspended from the force. And things are about to get worse.

The FBI is in town on the trail of a ruthless anti-government militia group, the Watchmen Brigade. Nobody in the NOPD wants any part of working with them. Guess which suspended rookie is told she doesn t have a choice.

With the FBI and a white supremacist militia on the loose in New Orleans, the city is one big powder keg. Find out what happens when a brilliant but impulsive young cop lights a match.

The rising crime fiction star Bill Loehfelm knows New Orleans. The streets, the people. Where the power lies, and how it gets used and abused. With Let the Devil Out, Loehfelm raises the bar for sharp, compelling crime fiction. As The New York Times says of the fascinating Maureen Coughlin, She finds herself wrestling with ethical issues that fictional cops . . . rarely talk about, leaving that stuff to real-life cops and smart guys like Bill Loehfelm.

Loehfelm’s atmospheric but somewhat addled fourth outing for hard-charging New Orleans rookie cop Maureen Coughlin (after 2015’s Doing the Devil’s Work) finds the former cocktail waitress chafing during the final days of a suspension, self-medicating with whiskey to dull memories of the violent events that prompted her to leave her native New York a year earlier. She’s also disregarding the orders of her concerned supervisor, legendary Sgt. Preacher Boyd, to temporarily desist from digging into who recently shot up her home, especially any inquiries that might involve wealthy mover and shaker Solomon Heath. And Coughlin can’t resist trying to locate the prime suspect in the murders of two gun-running members of an extremist militia called the Watchmen Brigade. The action moves briskly through colorful Crescent City locales, but the plot, which involves shooting NOPD cops in ambushes, ends up making less sense than it should. Author tour. Agent: Barney Karpfinger, Karpfinger Agency. (July)
