Trouble follows Dave Robicheaux. James Lee Burke's new novel finds Detective Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcel have retreated to stay at an old friend's ranch, hoping to spend their days fishing and enjoying their distance from the harsh, gritty landscape of Louisiana post-Katrina. But the serenity is quickly shattered when two college students are found brutally murdered in the hills behind where the Robicheauxs and Purcel are staying. Drawn into a twisted and dangerous mystery involving a wealthy, vicious oil tycoon, his deformed brother and beautiful wife, a sexually deviant minister, an escaped con and former country music star, and a vigilante Texas gunbull out for blood. At the center of the storm is Clete, who cannot shake the feeling that he is being haunted by ghosts from his past-namely Sally Dio, the mob boss he'd sabotaged and killed years before. In this expertly drawn, gripping story, Burke deftly weaves intricate, engaging plotlines and original, compelling characters with his uniquely graceful prose. He transcends genre yet again in the latest thrilling addition to his New York Times bestselling series.

"Let the joyous celebrations begin: James Lee Burke has published another Dave Robicheaux mystery. Perfectly portrayed by narrator Will Patton, Burke's shambling, tarnished knight and his trusty alter ego, Clete Purcell, stumble into the crooked dealings of a slick, ultrarich oilman and his country-crooner wife. A psychopath killer stalks this Eden of the Northwest, and it's up to Dave to put together all the pieces of the puzzle. Listeners' ears will tingle as Dave watches chain lightning crackle and pop across the blue, blue sky. Patton wraps his voice around long passages of beautifully descriptive prose and insightful psychological analysis, keepin' it real while keepin' it smooth as Tennessee whiskey. R.O.
