Detective Dave Robicheaux travels to the mountains of Montana to help his best friend and unearths a larger plot that threatens them both.
Oil speculator Weldon Sonnier is the patriarch of a troubled family intimately bound to the CIA, the Mob, and the Klan. Now, the murder of a cop and a bizarre assassination attempt pull Detective Dave Robicheaux into the Sonniers’ hellish world of madness, murder, and incest. But Robicheaux has devils of his own—and they may just destroy the tormented investigator and the two people he holds most dear.
Another outstanding one from Burke
Flat out awesome. Highly recommended. A no-hitter all the way.
This is a great novel, great interesting and likeable characters,I loved the good guys and the bad guys.I love the scenes when Dave shows a lot of affection to his daughter ALAFAIR. I love Batist, he is smarter than you give him credit to be. I
think you should expand on his character. Dave loves and trusts Batist. Dave and Batist have mutual respect and a strong connection; a brotherhood.
I highly recommend this wonderful novel.

Beautifully written; a great book by a great author.
An absolute master of prose. I suspect he could write about paint drying and still draw his reader in. Yet this novel, like most JLB novels, also has a perfect blend of action, strong plotting, and well defined, believable characters.
