A fast-paced, intelligent tale of intrigue that will keep readers guessing until the refreshing end.
-- Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

"Impossible to put down. Sparkling dialog, references both musical and literary, and an offbeat cast of believable characters make the pages fly by."
--Library Journal STARRED REVIEW Murder and music, discord and harmony, guilt and innocence, domesticity and passion, smooth talk and rough sex: In The Devil's Interval--Linda Lee Peterson's virtuoso second novel--journalist-sleuth Maggie Fiori scores all the notes. Maggie, like the book, is smart, stylish, and surprisingly steamy!
-- Jon Jefferson (Jefferson Bass), New York Times bestselling crime writer Smart and sexy, with the schemes of high society on full display, The Devil's Interval takes readers on a tour of Everyone's Favorite City, San Francisco. As Maggie Fiori attempts to solve this intricate mystery, which begins in San Quentin Prison, what will happen to her marriage, which needs a heavy dose of healing? Readers will be turning pages to discover the answers.
-- Naomi Hirahara, Edgar Award-winning author of the Mas Arai mysteries "The Devil's Interval is an entertaining mystery, and shines with crisp prose, layered characters, and a gripping plot."
-- Jonnie Jacobs, bestselling author of the Kate Austen and Kali O'Brien mystery series "An intelligent and gripping novel. Maggie Fiori is a witty, feisty protagonist and Peterson deftly weaves a compelling tale of how far a mother will go to save her child. The Devil's Interval is a roller-coaster ride through the streets and alleys of San Francisco that will evoke Robert Parker's Spenser novels with a dash of Janet Evanovich. Get out the flashlight. You'll be up late.
-- Robert Dugoni, New York Times bestselling author of The Conviction There are many things I like about this series...Peterson has avoided the pitfalls of making her protagonist either too cozy or too hard-bitten and has crafted in Maggie a character who feels real.
--Deon Stonehouse, Sunriver Books
