This story takes place in post-Katrina New Orleans. Some events which probably actually took place are woven into the story line. Dave Robicheaux is on the trail of looters, a murderer, and a vigilante - while being hunted by a hitman.

Absolutely amazing. I felt as though I had been through the emotional ringer of Katrina first-hand, even though of course I hadn't. The damage left, both physical and psychological, was aptly approached and examined through the eyes of his deeply flawed characters. Amazing.

I love James Lee Burke and his character descriptions are always very good but in this particular novel we get a first hand description of the devastation of New Orleans.It was a personal analysis of the effect that hurricane had on the inhabitants of New Orleans. I thought it was a little difficult to get into but once in there I was a prisoner until I completed the book.
