This volume is in Very Fine condition and a beautiful example of this James Lee Burke novel. The dust-jacket is also in Very Fine condition and it is not price-clipped. It is a First Edition and a First Printing. It is signed directly on the otherwise blank page following the ffep page by Mr. Burke. This is one of the novels in the 'Dave Robicheaux' series. Each novel stands alone and they do not have to be read in the order in which they were published. James Lee Burke stands head and shoulders over most writers of mysteries and thrillers. His method of writing is almost lyrical at times and his books are examples of Fine modern Literature and not simply mysteries. He has written twenty-six previous novels. This novel finds Dave Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcell have retreated to an old friends ranch hoping to spend their time fishing and enjoying their distance from the harshness of post-Katrina Louisiana. The serenity is soon shattered when two college students are found brutally murdered in the hills behind where they are staying. This is an expertly drawn, gripping story and a wonderful read. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
