On the bayou, a bad moon is rising—and Robicheaux’s peace is shattered with a gun.

Vietnam vet Dave Robicheaux has turned in his detective’s badge, is winning his battle against booze, and has left New Orleans with his wife for the tranquil beauty of the Louisiana bayou. But a plane crash on the Gulf brings a young girl into his life—and with her comes a netherworld of murder, deception, and home-grown crime.

Suddenly Robicheaux is confronting Bubba Rocque, a brutal hood he’s known since childhood, Rocque’s hungry Cajun wife, and a Federal agent with more guts than sense. In a backwater world where a swagger and a gun go further than the law, Robicheaux and those he loves are caught on a tide of violence far bigger than them all.

    " I believe that this is the first book that features Dave Robicheax. Dave Robicheaux is the protaganist and has turned in his detective’s badge, is winning his battle against booze, and has left New Orleans with his wife for the tranquil beauty of the Louisiana bayou. But a plane crash on the Gulf brings a young girl into his life—and with her comes a netherworld of murder, deception, and home-grown crime. Mr. Burke has a wonderful way telling his story. He has a great vocabulary and is very descriptive. "

    " Great book. This guy writes so well. It's excellent acion and story with a superb style of writing. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The main character is an ordinary guy but the writing elevates him to a great character. "

    " Great book, how the bayou comes alive and I can smell and see the storms as they come in! Dave finds Alafair, and his wife gets gunned down, what demons he deals with. And believable. "
