In the Dave Robicheaux mysteries, Edgar Award-winning and best-selling author James Lee Burke immerses his fans deep in the Louisiana underworld of cops, convicts, and con artists. With each intriguing case that lands on the police detective's desk, Dave continues his debate with the unpredictable forces that dwell within him.
A journalist has asked Dave to help her investigate rumors of police brutality in the Iberia Parish jail. But since her father was murdered in the same jurisdiction years before, her interest in police affairs may be more personal than professional. Soon, Dave is finding it difficult to answer her questions.
This journey through Dave Robicheaux's world, richly voiced by narrator Mark Hammer, is a truly riveting audio experience. Beginning with a crucifixion and closing with the glow of sunlight through bayou trees, each scene, brutal and beautiful, lingers on the ear.
