Back in print at last, James Lee Burke's suspense-packed sixth novel in his bestselling Dave Robicheaux series delivers a heart-pounding bayou manhunt--and features "one of the colest, earthiest heroes in thrilerdom" ( Entertainment Weekly ).

When Hollywood invades New Iberia Parish to film a Civil War epic, restless specters waiting in the shadows for Louisiana detective Dave Robicheaux are reawakened--ghosts of a history best left undisturbed. Hunting a serial killer preying on the lawless young, Robicheaux comes face-to-face with the elusive guardians of his darkest torments-- who hold the key to his ultimate salvation . . . or a final, fatal downfall.

Burke is a very good writer but used too much metaphor and dream like sequences in what should have been a straight forward plot. I really like his flawed Robicheaux and his locales.

While a big Hollywood studio prepares to film a Civil War epic in the Louisiana bayou, a serial killer is running rampant, praying on prostitutes. Cajun police detective Dave Robicheaux is drawn into the puzzle, and begins to see links between the killings, the death of a notorious Louisiana mobster, and an unsolved murder that Robicheaux himself witnessed thirty-five years ago.
