Book Description


See all titles by James Lee Burke.

Small-time black hustler Tee Bobby Hulin is partly redeemed, in Robicheauxs eyes, by a rare musical gift. Three men are present when Amanda Boudreau is raped and murdered, and Tee Bobbys prints are found at the crime scene. Dave reckons hes innocent, and Tee Bobby pleads so, then attempts suicide in his holding cell. Why? Soon after, hooker and junkie Linda Zeroski is beaten to death by a man wearing leather gloves who, with great care and precision, crushes every bone in her face. Louisiana's murky history casts a long shadow in the work of James Lee Burke, but nowhere longer than here, with the LaSalles family, who settled there before the Louisiana Purchase and built their wealth upon the backs of slave labour. When lawyer Perry LaSalles takes on the defense of Tee Bobby Hulin, Dave knows his motives are fueled by guilt. For Tee Bobbys grandmother Ladice was seduced by Perrys grandfather, and Amanda Boudreaus death is related to events that happened long before Tee Bobby was born In this rich and compelling novel James Lee Burke weaves a web of plots and subplots involving perfectly observed characters. Dense with passion and compassion, Burkes novels get better and better.

Reviewer: A Pierce from Pittsburgh, PA United States  
I purchased this book for a friend because she lives this book and the author’s writing. Finding a first print, first edition signed copy at a reasonable price that was carefully packaged and shipped was delightful.

Reviewer: M. CLEMENT from COLLEGE STATION, TX United States  
As a mystery writer, James Lee Burke weaves a masterpiece. You are drawn into a gripping story where sins, secrets of the past retain their control of the lives of many.  True evil rules in a small Louisiana bayou town.
This is the first book I've read by Burke, but will not be my last. His descriptive prose and interwoven plot will enthrall the most discriminating reader. I highly recommend this book. This is a compelling read which will retain a place on my bookshelf.
