The Devil's Song

Kate Magda, an up-and-coming prosecutor and the privileged daughter of the politically connected President Judge Tommy Magda, has been given the assignment of a lifetime--lead prosecutor on a string of murders rocking Mission County, Pennsylvania. Kate views the assignment as her chance to not only convict a serial killer, but to make a name for herself--one other than "the judge's daughter." She is determined to show her boss, her family, and the public that she is more than her father's shadow.

As Kate delves into the case, she becomes convinced that she shares a personal link with the killer, who seems to know intimate details about a tragic childhood event Kate suffered--an event she thought she'd left in the past. It's the way the victims are being posed--naked and dumped in open graves. Paranoia sets in, the night terrors return, and Kate has an imminent sense that she's the killer's next victim. Kate no longer feels assigned to the case...she is the case, and solving it is her only chance for survival.



My Review

This is author, Lauren Stahl's debut novel. Ms. Stahl comes swinging out of the gate. I can't wait to read what Ms. Stahl comes out with next.

Instantly, I connected with the characters and the storyline. Kate is a strong woman. I like that she not only could walk the walk but talk the talk as well. Yet, she was not afraid to admit when she needed help or support as well. Which, she had in Sam. Sam is the type of guy that any woman would want in their corner.

Now to the story. A really good one. I really did not find any faults with it. In fact, the connection to the victims and the reveal of the murder was great. A bit of a surprise when it came to the reveal. Here is hoping that I see Kate and Sam again in the future. The Devil's Song sung to me and it was beautiful. A book worth picking up and reading.
