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.

    " I didn't relate to the super macho main character at all. My husband's uncle gave it to me because he loved it. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't up my alley. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by BJ | 1/29/2014

    " This book is filled with a lot of local color. The setting is southwestern Louisiana and the characters are believable and portray an accurate picture of people from that area. The plot is a bit under developed but loved the cast. "
