A brutal legacy of cruelty and hate is awakened in the bayou.

When Sonny Boy Marsallus returns to New Iberia after fleeing to avoid the wrath of the powerful Giacana family, his old troubles soon follow. Meanwhile, Dave Robicheaux becomes entangled in the affairs of the Fontenot family, descendants of sharecroppers whose matriarch helped raise Dave as a child. They are in danger of losing the land they’ve lived on for more than a century.

As Dave tries to discover who wants the land so badly, he finds himself in increasing peril from a lethal, rag tag alliance of local mobsters—and a hired assassin with a shady past. And when a seemingly innocent woman is brutally murdered, all roads intersect, and Sonny Boy is in the middle.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The resulting jambalaya boils out to be the best book in the Robicheaux series…This one is masterful. Steeped in passion and intrigue, it also boasts an ending that will resonate after the last wave of summer rolls to the shore.”


  • “Brilliant…Dixie City Jam is the apocalyptic vision of a writer scared to death of where we’re headed—and a thriller with more to say than most of us might want to hear. A+”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Action-packed…a standout…holds on to his trademark melancholy-tinged sensitivity.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A Robicheaux novel can always be counted on for atmosphere (no one uses New Orleans and evirons better), for bone-hard realism (especially on the subject of violence, its allure and its horror), and for melancholy reflection on the inevitability of the old giving way to the new. Burke keeps it all fresh by never losing sight of the soft edges around his hard characters and by somehow being able to crank out a little extra lyricism at just the right moment.”


  • “His darkest, densest novel yet.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
