The eighteenth Detective Dave Robicheaux novel from the award-winning, Pulitzer nominated, James Lee Burke – ‘one of the finest crime writers America has ever produced’


When Detective Dave Robicheaux gets a call saying his ex-partner Clete Purcell is in jail for assault, bailing him out is instinctive. After all, Clete is the man who saved his life.

The man Clete assaulted is a suspect in a series of murders, but his involvement is hidden behind his work with a charity aimed at getting vulnerable women off the streets.

As Robicheaux investigates, he is confronted with the possibility that the murders will lead him to a place of absolute darkness and living evil, connected to the one person he will do anything to protect: his daughter…

‘Richly deserves to be described now as one of the finest crime writers America has ever produced.’ Daily Mail
