This is NOT a Dave Robicheaux novel, it is a "riveting evocation of the Civil War, drawn from the true family history" of James Lee Burke. This book dispels any possible doubt that he is a very fine writer, beyond the genre of "detective fiction." As the Washington Post says: "Violent, lyrical, and engrossing....The man has a touch of the poet in him."
