Detective Dave Robicheaux, his wife Molly and daughter Alafair are vacationing in Montana. But evil, it seems, has followed them into this wild paradise.
Someone is stalking Alafair, and Dave begins to suspect that it's a convicted serial killer she interviewed two years ago - even though he’s supposed to be dead.
Is Alafair the target of a depraved serial killer, or has she unwittingly crossed paths with a murderous psychopath closer to home?

Burke takes it to the Big Sky
I was a little worried that leaving New Iberia would be out of my comfort zone. I like the whole "live oaks and moss" thing, its very VERY evocative. But bringing the characters out to a wide open spaces environment worked really well. I could easily see them in this environment as I could in their natural setting.
The author's skill is in giving you just enough mischief for the characters to get into, and then taking you off to see what had happened to another character who was also getting into mischief. Its too tempting to jump from place to place to make sure your favourite character isn't coming too unstuck. But happily, the pleasure of finding another character wading recklessly into another mess of trouble elsewhere always keeps you interested.
His accent is just *awesome*. It enhances the glory of the author's writing ... like a boss. And his characterisation is perfect. I was very quickly able to determine which character was speaking.
The Bobbsey Twins take on The Big Sky.
I'd not "met" Gretchen before. Love her!
Time's up Mr. Burke
