Dave Robicheaux tries to find out whether a redneck named Aaron Crown actually killed a civil rights leader back in the 1960s, and to figure out what this old crime, for which Crown has only recently been arrested, has to do with the upcoming gubernatorial election. But the investigation is soon mired in the violent history of New Iberia and the complicated relationships of its politically inbred families. Then a hit man crawls out of the swamp to silence police informants, and everyone from the New Orleans Mafia to Dave's wife warns him off the case.

Magnificent prose that portrays blue-collar Louisiana. There is less Robicheaux angst over his Vietnam experiences. The tense action remains as our hero responds to a corrupt politician and those who put him in power. I have been reading these books in chronological order and look forward to reading them all again. The imagery almost overwhelms me as I read, slowly at times. Burkes books are best read this way, savoring the images he evokes. Would you rush through a wonderful meal?
