The Devil's Song by Lauren Stahl

Kate is an up-and-coming prosecutor who is trying hard to show her own worth.  Others think her dad got her the position and she intends to prove them wrong.  She has an excellent record.  And she's real excited about this new case.  She doesn't realize how close to home it's going to come...

Kaylie Jones Books sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It will be published January 2nd.

Kate carries a secret from the past in her heart and head.  She soon starts to see similarities between the current killings and her near death experience as a child.  The women all have red hair and they've all been shaved to make them look childish. She thinks her predator is out of jail but he's not.  He's dead.  So who's killing them?

Someone is drugging Kate and messing with her mind.  Her cousin who was her best friend is now distant and detached even though she's living with her.  The more she searches for the truth, the more twisted the tale gets.

You have drug addicts, crazy people, blackmail and corruption cases all over the place and the people she's trying to track aren't where they are supposed to be.  Kate finds herself in an impossible place and it looks hopeless.

This story is exciting and realistic.  While Kate survives and it looks like she may have found a love interest, you can tell her father is in trouble.  He's a judge and she's always admired him.  She'll probably be protecting him in the next book in this series.
