Back in print at last, James Lee Burke’s suspense-packed sixth novel in his bestselling Dave Robicheaux series delivers a heart-pounding bayou manhunt—and features “one of the coolest, earthiest heroes in thrillerdom” (Entertainment Weekly ).

When Hollywood invades New Iberia Parish to film a Civil War epic, restless specters waiting in the shadows for Louisiana detective Dave Robicheaux are reawakened—ghosts of a history best left undisturbed. Hunting a serial killer preying on the lawless young, Robicheaux comes face-to-face with the elusive guardians of his darkest torments—who hold the key to his ultimate salvation…or a final, fatal downfall.

    " on Audible. Story was average okay. Narrator was excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Melissa Voignier | 2/12/2014

    " I love all of Burke's novels. However, this was a little hokey for me with the main character having full blown dialogue with a dead confederate general. It took away from the atmosphere and plot of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Karen Mullis | 2/11/2014

    " This has to be my favorite James Lee Burke book. He is such a literary writer and a master of developing a story within a story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Adam | 2/8/2014

    " Probably the best of the series so far. All strands of the plot come together, which was not always the case in previous books. As usual, Dave's ruminations and internal monologues are just as compelling as the action. "
