Back in the underworld he tried to leave it all behind…

Haunted by the memory of his wife’s murder and his father’s untimely death, ex–New Orleans cop Dave Robicheaux spends his days in a fish-and-tackle business. But when an old friend makes a surprise appearance, Robicheaux finds himself thrust back into the violent world of Mafia goons and wily federal agents. From the Louisiana bayou to Montana’s tribal lands, Robicheaux is running from the bottle, a homicide rap, a professional killer, and the demons of his past.

Rich with fascinating characters and dramatic plot twists, the audio debut of James Lee Burke and his Cajun detective Dave Robicheaux recalls the best of Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe—tough, complex, and thoroughly entertaining.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Wonderful writing...Don't miss this book. It's one of the year’s best.”

    Detroit Free Press

  • “Pulsating adventure.”

    San Jose Mercury News

  • “Robicheaux’s sleuthing is a simultaneous exorcism of demons of grief, loss, fear, rage, vengeance. Burke’s fictional terrain—stretching from the Louisiana bayous to Montana’s red cliffs and pine-dotted hills—is uniquely his own, yet also a microcosm of a multiethnic America. He writes from the heart and the gut.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Burke brings back Dave Robicheaux in this gripping sequel to Heaven's Prisoners…Should appeal to fans of Travis McGee and readers of well-crafted suspense. Skillfully evoked settings add to the book's appeal. Highly recommended.”

    Library Journal

  • A New York Times Bestselling Author
  • Winner of the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel
