James Lee Burke is one of our finest living novelists. His books are not just mysteries. They are written in a literary style that is both unique and beautiful. If you have not read Burke I highly recommend him to you. This book was acquired in the author's home town of New Iberia, Louisiana, deep in Cajun country. This is a Dave Robicheaux novel and it is the First edition and First printing. This is the fourth Robicheaux novel. Robicheaux is a main and continuing character in many of the novels of James Lee Burke. This is a most accomplished and action-packed novel. This book is in excellent condition. All four corners are square and the author has signed the book directly on the title page. There is a light scratch to the back board which really does not detract. The dustjacket shows the tiniest of shelf-wear to the extreme top and bottom of the spine panel. It is in no way significant. The dustjacket is not price-clipped. I consider this a fine copy of an early James Lee Burke novel (1990). Dave Robicheaux is a Cajun detective and this novel delivers a volatile mix of Mafia drug running and Cajun Voodoo magic, as Dave goes undercover into the sleepy, torrid depths of the New Orleans criminal world. A real page-turner this volume will be enjoyed by all who love good writing. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
