This is a brand-new book and there are no flaws to report. In this masterful novel Burke proves himself both a brilliant storyteller and a prose stylist who ranks with the best in America. James Lee Burke's novels featuring the detective David Robicheaux have brought increasing numbers of readers to the dangerous streets of New Orleans and the surrounding bayou country of Louisiana. It is very true when the Washington Post says "He makes you feel the laden air pressing close, smell the peculiar sweetness of banana trees and stagnant water, taste boudin and fried shrimp'. His books are so atmospheric that they really do evoke the area where the action takes place. This novel is in very fine condition and the dustjacket is not price-clipped. It is signed by the author directly on the title page. In this book, Critically acclaimed and bestselling crime writer James Lee Burke returns to Louisiana where his ever-popular hero, Dave Robicheaux, sleuths his way through a hotbed of sin and uncertainty. This is a darkly suspenseful novel and as with all of Mr. Burke's literature, is a fine addition to modern fiction. Burke is simply one of our best living novelists.
