A forgotten Nazi sub brings old hatreds to the surface.

They’re out there, under the salt—the bodies of German seamen who used to lie in wait at the mouth of the Mississippi for unescorted American tankers sailing from the oil refineries of Baton Rouge out into the Gulf of Mexico.

Dave Robicheaux had been haunted by the sailors’ images as a child—then, as a young college student, he’d discovered one of their sunken subs while scuba diving. Years later, in a New Orleans populated by desperate hustlers and millennium-watchers of all stripes, Robicheaux finds himself and his family at serious risk, stalked for his knowledge of a watery burial ground by a mysterious man named Will Buchalter—a man who believes that the Holocaust was one big hoax.

A masterpiece of suspense, Dixie City Jam takes readers deep into the human heart of darkness.

    " Dave Robicheaux is haunted by an old crime. Megan and Cisco Flynn's father, a union organizer, was beaten and nailed to a barn. Decades later, the Flynn siblings are back in town: Cisco is making a movie, Megan is a world class photographer. Assisted by the unusual (usual) cast of characters (Clete Purcell his ex-partner, Helen his current partner, weird hit men, the New Orleans Mob, and downtrodden Cajuns) Dave finally unravels who perpetrated the crime and why. I listened to this book on tape several years ago; reading it was almost a new experience. "

    " I do agree with others who have already reviewed this book generally. I like very much his sense of place - his words paint evocative pictures. I loved the scenes with Robicheaux and daughter Alafair fishing together. Its a compelling mystery and made me unable to put it down. "
