In a land soaked with sin, Dave Robicheaux is dueling with killers, ghosts, and a woman's revenge....

The townspeople of New Iberia, Louisiana, didn't crucify Megan Flynn's father. They just didn't catch whoever pinned him to a barn wall with sixteen-penny nails.

Decades later, Megan, now a world-famous photojournalist, has come back to the bayou, looking for cop Dave Robicheaux. It was Dave who found the body of labor leader Jack Flynn. The sight changed the boy, shaped him as a man. And after forty years, Robicheaux is still haunted by the bizarre unsolved slaying.

Now Megan's return has stirred up the ghosts of the long-buried past, igniting a storm of violence that will rip apart lives of blacks and whites in this bayou county. And for a good cop with bad memories, hard desires, and chilling nightmares, the time has come to uncover the truth.

Another wonderful book by James Lee Burke. The cast of characters and their actions are quite grim. Even so, Burke's writing is so lovely that I would often stop to reread a segment. In this book, there is less angst about Vietnam, though Robicheaux remains embedded in his painful history. He reminds me of Reacher with his pursuit of true north. But Reacher is touched by wanderlust while Robicheaux is anchored to Louisiana.

As good as any of the other novels in the Robicheaux series. That being said, I find the violence of the two main characters increasingly disturbing, not to mention the very thin veneer of southern civility that masks ongoing racial and socio-economic problems in Louisiana. If the novels are accurate in this regard, then I am glad I am living here in Canada.
