Summary:

New York Times bestselling author and “America’s best novelist” (The Denver Post) James Lee Burke is back with the twentieth mystery in the masterful Dave Robicheaux series.

Sadist and serial killer Asa Surrette narrowly escaped the death penalty for the string of heinous murders he committed while capital punishment was outlawed in Kansas. But following a series of damning articles written by Dave Robicheaux’s daughter Alafair, Surrette escapes from a prison transport van and heads to Montana, where an unsuspecting Dave—along with Alafair; Dave’s wife, Molly; Dave’s faithful partner Clete; and Clete’s newfound daughter, Gretchen Horowitz—have come to take in the sweet summer air.

Surrette may be even worse than Dave’s old enemy Legion Guidry, a man Dave suspected might very well be the devil incarnate. But before Dave can stop Surrette from harming those he loves most, he’ll have to do battle with Love Younger, an enigmatic petrochemical magnate seeking to build an oil pipeline from Alberta to Texas, and Wyatt Dixon, a rodeo clown with a dark past whom Burke fans will recall from his Billy Bob Holland novels.

Says The Plain Dealer (Cleveland), “Already designated a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America, Burke should get another title, say, for sustained literary brilliance in his Dave Robicheaux series.” Drawing on real events that took place in Wichita, Kansas, over a twenty-year span, Light of the World is a harrowing novel that examines the nature of evil and pits Dave Robicheaux against the most diabolical villain he has ever faced.

    I truly am one of James Lee Burkes biggest fans. When I read him I keep a tablet near by to record those passages that wake me up, clue me in, or, literally change the way I perceive life. Im sixty-four and have been a zealous bibliophile since my early childhood and have seldom read an author with greater insight into matters both sociological and spiritual. His is a mind to be taken seriously. He is not, however, lacking a sense of humor. He is clever, sardonic and witty. It took me months to read this book because I was constantly interrupted by his other books. One or the other of which kept catching my attention. When I finally sat with a purpose to read this novel I found myself completely immersed. Of all the stories he has told me, this one hit home the deepest. I discovered that we share the deepest passion for our friends and family and that the depth of sacrifice one human being is willing to go to for another is astonishing and humbling. It makes me feel as though I can more easily trust the love we have for one another in this life. Makes me want to be a hero by way of giving myself to those in need. Keeps me from being able to be a coward. This book is the best of, in my humble opinion. A true must read and a blessing of wisdom and encouragement.
