Publisher's Summary

Detective Dave Robicheaux becomes entangled in the affairs of the Fontenot family, descendants of sharecroppers whose matriarch helped raise Dave as a child. They are in danger of losing the land they've lived on for more than a century. As Dave tries to discover who wants the land so badly, he finds himself in increasing peril from a lethal, rag-tag alliance of local mobsters - and a hired assassin with a shady past.


What the Critics Say

"Burke's outstanding mystery series featuring Cajun detective Dave Robicheaux...has catapulted him from a well-reviewed if somewhat obscure author to a writer of best sellers....Reader Will Patton adds another star to his already superb resume with a fantastic reading." (Library Journal)

Ok, but Abridged it leaves holes

Again, after reading Tin Roof Blowdown, which is 5-star, I went back to read these earlier JLB / Robichaux audiobooks.

Up to this one, they are all abridged, and the editor did a lousy job.

many holes in story line, motives, etc.

Editor chose to leave all the bayou descriptives in and cut all the story line.

I would still rate it average; if you like JLB and Robichaux, this was one of the better stories.....

Reader, Will Patton, fabulous as usual!!!

Overall slight thumbs up.

still a good combo

I just got these to add to my audio books. I had read them already ,of course, as I had read a all of the wonderful James Lee Burke books. To have Will Patton read to me is just the best.
