Críticas:

"Bill Loehfelm writes about New Orleans with tenderness and grit, two qualities mirrored by his unforgettable protagonist, Maureen Coughlin. Compelling, whip-smart and completely original, "Doing the Devil's Work" will take your breath away." --Hilary Davidson, author of "Evil in All Its Disguises
"
"Bill Loehfelm, a rising star in crime fiction, just keeps rising higher . . . Maureen Coughlin is a hero for the ages." --Laura Lippman

"Our heroine has both a strong will and a finely tuned moral compass... Loehfelm has created a wonderfully flawed heroine in Coughlin... [Loehfelm's] love for New Orleans is evident in his descriptions, from the greasy spoon the cops favor for gumbo to the rollicking frat bars of the French Quarter. Dialogue doesn't get much snappier, and the complicated plot (which not only introduces the militia group, but resolves the fate of the despicable murderer Scales from Way) is deftly handled. This series just keeps getting better." --"Kirkus" (starred)
"Loehfelm's third crime novel featuring the marvelously complex New Orleans police officer Maureen Coughlin is every bit as good as its standout predecessors, and provides fresh evidence that Maureen merits a long literary life...The often lyrical prose will remind many of the grim, hard-edged style of James Ellroy." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred)"Bill Loehfelm owns post-Katrina New Orleans. This is an honest, true look at the New Orleans of today with an insider's knowledge of the streets, the neighborhoods, and the people. You can't do any better than riding shotgun with Maureen Coughlin. She's hip, contemporary, and the perfect guide to one of America's most broken cities." --Ace Atkins, "New York Times"-bestselling author of "The Forsaken "and "The Redeemers""Writers will admire Bill Loehfelm's "Doing the Devil's Work" for its tart dialogue, pungent sense of place, and sinuous portrayal of Officer Maureen Coughlin, a Clarice Starling for New Orleans. Readers will rip through it and then curse Loehfelm for not having another heart-breaking tale at the ready." --Bryan Gruley, author of "The Skeleton Box""Bill Loehfelm writes about New Orleans with tenderness and grit, two qualities mirrored by his unforgettable protagonist, Maureen Coughlin.

"Bill Loehfelm, a rising star in crime fiction, just keeps rising higher . . . Maureen Coughlin is a hero for the ages." --Laura Lippman

"As he's shown in the earlier installments in this series, Loehfelm has a real feel for capturing the nearly impenetrable culture of the NOPD . . . As impressive as his ability to evoke a sense of place is Loehfelm's creation of a lead character of such remarkable depth and complexity. Equal parts toughness, vulnerability, naivete, and street smarts, Coughlin has clearly established herself as one of the most compelling crime-fiction protagonists to appear in the last five years . . . she is one of a kind. There is no more fascinating beat cop in crime fiction, and when Coughlin earns her detective shield, the genre's A-list stars better start watching their backs." --"Booklist" (starred)"Our heroine has both a strong will and a finely tuned moral compass...

Praise for "Doing the Devil's Work"ABA IndieNext Selection for January, 2015"After being warned about falling in love with the power of the job, [Maureen Coughlin] finds herself wrestling with ethical issues that fictional cops, especially fictional female ones, rarely talk about, leaving that stuff to real-life cops--and smart guys like Bill Loehfelm." --"The New York Times""As he's shown in the earlier installments in this series, Loehfelm has a real feel for capturing the nearly impenetrable culture of the NOPD . . .
