Dave Robicheaux is back in a dangerous mystery that involves stolen money, gritty casinos, and a beautiful girl with connections to his past.

When a nice young woman named Trish Klein blows into Louisiana, passing hundred-dollar bills in local casinos, detective Dave Robicheaux senses a storm bearing down on his new life of contentment. Twenty-five years ago, lost in a drunken haze in Florida, Robicheaux was too far gone to save his friend and fellow ’Nam vet Dallas Klein, murdered in cold blood for gambling debts. Now, the arrival of Dallas’s daughter opens a door locked long ago, and extracting her motives points Robicheaux to the suicide of a local “good girl” pulled into a vortex of power, sex, and death. It’s Robicheaux’s most personally painful case—a roller coaster of passion, surprise, and regret—and it may be his deadliest.

This author's writing is haunting and melodic-and the narration is superb. I would recommend any of the Dave Robicheaux novels, especially if Will Patton is narrating. You can hear every emotion from each distinct character-the narration is so three dimensional. The story is gripping-you will not be disappointed.

Love the machinations of the dry alcoholic, the character development and the Louisiana settings, both small town and NOLA!

An excellent and interesting storyline, although the ending was a little far fetched. Will Patton as always does an amazing job of in narrating this beautiful writing and distinct characters.

Excellent story! The melancholy of people trapped in their historical roles is palatable.

If you are a Robicheaux fan, this is one of the better ones. Burke has his groove back with this one.
