Perfect imagery paints the scene in the second entry of James Lee Burke’s ongoing Dave Robicheaux mystery series. Often as bad as he is good, Dave Robicheaux proves to be an intriguing character on many levels. He has his demons, and he fights them nearly every day of his life. The supporting characters are as intriguing as the lead, and each one proves far from perfect. And the worst ones help determine a new definition of evil. Were it not for his strong sense of character and command of the written word, this novel might have failed. But it doesn’t by any stretch of the imagination. It succeeds over and over again. If you like strong characters and a strong sense of place, then I highly recommend this gorgeous read into the depths of humanity. Robert Downs Author of Falling Immortality: Casey Holden, Private Investigator

I'm new to the Robicheaux series and plan to read them in order. This is #2 and it was another great read. I gave the first book 5 stars and this one 4, but this probably should be scored 4.5 stars. Burke is a damn fine writer and his main character is just about the perfect hero - he's human, clearly imperfect, is deep and absolutely likeable. You root for Robicheaux in all aspects of his life, his relationships and his investigations. Great story here, and a continuation of character development - Robicheaux as well as others.

James Lee Burke is an outstanding author I love all of his work. He does an excellent job of telling a tale of suspense and danger. He has a way of keeping the action going and of describing the area that makes you think you are there.

The Louisiana atmosphere and the inner demons of a recovering alcoholic, oozes from every page and Burke makes it look sooooo effortless that it truely makes one jealous of his writing ability. I will read every book he writes.

Whether it's describing the tranquility of the Louisiana bayou or detailing the inner battles of a recovering alcoholic, Burke's writing is simply extraordinary!!!

Some very fine descriptive writing. Like many recovering alcoholics, sometimes uncomfortably self-absorbed. A little disturbing that characters of color are quaint types, created to 'color' the world of whites. On the other hand, maybe it's just telling it as it is.

Burke's second Dave Robicheaux story improves and enhances his protagonist's backstory. As always, it's the details and moral uncertainty that draw you in, but it's the sharply-drawn characters that almosy force you to stay. The list-making as he describes second-story men, pimps, Murphy artists, burnouts, lushes, fishermen, Negroes, and dry drunks can grate after a while, but the well-written journeys into New Iberia and New Orleans make up for it.
