Description

Detective Dave Robicheaux first met Desmond Cormier on the backstreets of New Orleans. He was a young pretender who dreamt of stardom whilst Robicheaux had his path all figured out.

Now, twenty-five years later, their roles have reversed. When Robicheaux knocks on Cormier's door, he sees a successful Hollywood director.

It seems dreams can come true. But so can nightmares.

A young woman has been crucified, wearing only a small chain on her ankle, and all the evidence points to Cormier. Robicheaux wants to believe his old friend wouldn't be capable of such a crime - but Cormier's silence is deafening.

And he isn't the only ghost from Robicheaux's past which comes back to haunt him...

Review quote

After 22 books, Burke's Dave Robicheaux novels have established their own unforgettable world ... Utterly unique -- John Williams * MAIL ON SUNDAY * One of crime fiction's great creations. He's like no other cop. Haunted by the Vietnam War, prone to violence, heavy drinking and fits of depression, he emerges as a flawed man of honour, an enemy of injustice and of racial hatred. And Burke is like no other crime writer, his prose is lyrical, swirling and nostalgic. -- Marcel Berlins * THE TIMES * A gripping thriller from a master of the form * I paper *
