REVIEW THE DEVIL’S SONG is a heart pumping and riveting tale of unrelenting tension. It’s a story about a serial killer investigation; and it’s a story about a real family and the history that haunts them. LAUREN STAHL has written a fascinating debut novel that grabs her readers and doesn’t let go. The writing is fluid, the characters well-developed, and the plot has many interest elements. Kate Magna, is a bluestocking woman, who stands up to trouble, questions everything, and is determined to seek justice. I hope to read more books about her in the future. The title was the only thing about this book that scared me. It was the key reason that I put off reading this book for over six weeks, and then after reading it I failed to see how the title connected to the story. Despite that I would recommend this book to anyone with an inkling for strong women characters and legal thrillers. Can’t wait for the next LAUREN STAHL book. Thanks to LibraryThing, Akashic Books and Lauren Stahl for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Book Published January 2, 2018
