Bill Loehfelm
Murder By The Book, Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 6:30pm
Bill Loehfelm will sign and discuss Doing the Devil's Work (Sarah Crichton Books; $25).

Bill’s first three novels, The Devil She Knows (2011), which featured Maureen’s debut, Bloodroot (2009), and Fresh Kills (2008), winner of the first Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, are set in Staten Island, NYC, where he grew up.

Born in Park Slope, Bill grew up in Brooklyn and on Staten Island. After college in Scranton, PA, where he studied communications and English, he taught high school English on Staten Island. In 1997, he moved to New Orleans, where he has taught high school and college, worked in an antique shop, and done absolutely everything there is to do in the bar and restaurant business (except cook). He received his MA from the University of New Orleans in 2005. He plays drums in a rock n’ roll cover band.

Bill lives in New Orleans’ Garden District with his wife, AC Lambeth, a writer and yoga instructor, and their two dogs.

Bill Loehfelm - DOING the DEVIL'S WORK (Roots of Music Fundraiser)
Octavia Books, Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 6pm
Bill Loehfelm continues the journey with Maureen Coughlin in his newest book, Doing the Devil's Work. When you purchase the book from us between now and the event (Thursday, January 15, 2015, 6:00 P.M.) , we'll donate a portion of the proceeds to The Roots of Music (Bill mentions Roots in the book!). We hope to hear some of the musicians play.

Maureen Coughlin is a bona fide New Orleans cop now, and, with her training days behind her, she likes to think she’s getting the lay of the land. Then a mysterious corpse leads to more questions than answers, and a late-night traffic stop goes very wrong. The fallout leaves Maureen contending with troubled friends, fraying loyalties, cop-hating enemies old and new, and an elusive, spectral, and murderous new nemesis—and all the while navigating the twists and turns of a city and a police department infected with dysfunction and corruption.

Bill Loehfelm is a rising star in crime fiction. And his Maureen Coughlin is the perfect protagonist: complicated, strong-willed, sympathetic (except when she’s not), and as fully realized in Loehfelm’s extraordinary portrayal as the New Orleans she patrols. The first two installments in this series won Loehfelm accolades as well as fans, and Doing the Devil’s Work only ups the ante. It’s even faster, sharper, and more thrilling than its predecessors. Taut and fiery, vibrant and gritty, and peopled with unforgettable characters, this is the sinuous, provocative story of a good cop struggling painfully into her own.

Bill Loehfelm is the author of The Devil in Her Way, The Devil She Knows, Bloodroot, and Fresh Kills. He lives in New Orleans with his wife, the writer AC Lambeth, and plays drums in the Ibervillains, a rock-and-soul cover band.
