Publisher Description

'No argument: James Lee Burke is among the finest of all contemporary American novelists' DAILY MAIL

A routine assignment transporting two death-row prisoners to their executions goes fatally wrong, leaving Dave Robicheaux brutally wounded and his partner dead.

Obsessed with revenge, Dave is persuaded by the DEA to go undercover into the torrid sleepy depths of New Orleans, a volatile world of Mafia drug-running and Cajun voodoo magic. He becomes irrevocably snarled in the nightmarish web surrounding Mafia don Tony Cardo and must put himself against his own worst fears in order to survive.

A Morning For Flamingos

Once again, Mr Burke's artistry in assembling a mesmerising panorama from the broken, injured and ragged side of humanity is peerless. There is a timelessness to his writing, a deeply spiritual yet non-preaching message of hope and love twisted within the wreckage of his characters that, despite their backgrounds, their desperation and hurt, is achingly beautiful.

Robicheaux is as humanly flawed and naturally honorable as ever, while his loyal and damaged friend Clete Purcel makes the reader wish they could shake his hand or give him a hug while trying to hold back their tears.

To be a lover of books and not read James Lee Burke is to go to Paris and never eat the food.
