The novel is set in Louisiana, where a serial killer is loose and a movie is being filmed. The story is rich in subplots and regional atmosphere. Misty bayou scenes in which images of life in the past and present mingle. "A fine example of noir fiction."

I jumped into the Dave Robicheaux series with this book on the recommendation of William Kent Krueger who likes Burke's books very much; based on this one book, I do too.
Great title which leads to one of the mysteries, exactly what and who did see what in the mist! Also, there are a series of interesting mysteries surrounding a central mystery. Complex characters as well as a complicated plot keep the story moving quickly.
This falls in the category of a darker mystery series, not an "English cozy" mystery.

Great book. Don't watch the movie with Tommie Lee Jones, its terrible.

Excellent book, the author puts you right there with the actors. I found that reading the book first then watching the movie is the best as the movie does leave alot out and you would not be in the dark about what is going on as much. Makes the movie easier to watch and understand what is going on.
