Adding to Robicheaux’s troubles is the matter of his daughter, Alafair, on leave from Stanford Law to put the finishing touches on her novel. Her literary pursuit has led her into the arms of Kermit Abelard, celebrated novelist and scion of a once prominent Louisiana family whose fortunes are slowly sinking into the corruption of Louisiana’s subculture. Abelard’s association with best-selling ex-convict author Robert Weingart, a man who uses and discards people like Kleenex, causes Robicheaux to fear that Alafair might be destroyed by the man she loves. As his daughter seems to drift away from him, he wonders if he has become a victim of his own paranoia. But as usual, Robicheaux’s instincts are proven correct and he finds himself dealing with a level of evil that is greater than any enemy he has confronted in the past.
Set against the backdrop of an Edenic paradise threatened by pernicious forces, James Lee Burke’s The Glass Rainbow is already being hailed as perhaps the best novel in the Robicheaux series.

Dave Robicheaux: stupidest cop on the planet!
I love Burke's writing. I think I have all his Robicheaux books, but... is there a STUPIDER police detective on the planet? This character makes me want to scream! He can't see anything that would be obvious to a blind man! And he is willing to put anyone else's life in danger; his wife's, daughter's, friends, ANYONE'S, just so he can show the world how tough he is. He hasn't got the sense God gave a chicken. In fact, a chicken has common sense is spades compared to Dave Robicheaux.
No one is this stupid, are they? Please Mr. Burke, even a broken clock is right twice a day: stop making this village idiot so stupid!
