Description
Johnny Massina, a convicted murderer bound for the electric chair, has warned Dave Robicheaux that he's on somebody's hit list, and now the homicide detective is trying to discover just who that somebody is before he ends up dead, in this first novel from James Lee Burke's Edgar Award–winning series, originally published in 1987. Meanwhile Robicheaux has taken on the investigation into the death of a young black girl found in the Bayou Swamp—a case no one seems keen for him to solve. But he persists, uncovering a web of corruption that some would kill to protect, and leading him to a terrifying confrontation with the one horror he fears most of all.

"Fine writing, that is far above the crime-fiction norm and manages to stand comparison with the very best contemporary novels."—Sunday Express (London)

"Dialogue that's so right, so real, so true to the personality you'd swear the guys were right there in the room with you; and a setting ... that's so vivid you can feel the heaviness in the air, see the heat lightning, and taste the sauce piquante."—Washington Post Book World
