James Lee Burke's new novel finds Detective Robicheaux far from his New Iberia roots, attempting to relax in the untouched wilderness of rural Montana. He, his wife, and his buddy Clete Purcel have retreated to stay at an old friend's ranch, hoping to spend their days fishing and enjoying their distance from the harsh, gritty landscape of Louisiana post-Katrina. But the serenity is quickly shattered when two college students are found brutally murdered in the hills behind where the Robicheauxs and Purcel are staying. Drawn into a twisted and dangerous mystery involving a wealthy, vicious oil tycoon, his deformed brother and beautiful wife, a sexually deviant minister, an escaped con and former country music star, and a vigilante Texas gunbull out for blood. At the center of the storm is Clete, who cannot shake the feeling that he is being haunted by ghosts from his past -- namely Sally Dio, the mob boss he'd sabotaged and killed years before.

So many characters, but I finally got it. I liked the story and most of the characters. Good reader.

On a scale of 1-to-5, this is a 5, and I wish I had a higher number to give it. The way Burke pieces together the mystery is perfection. But he still manages to take us deep into the human strengths and frailities of his characters without losing the focus of the story. It's a morality play without preaching. At the end you know there is redemption, forgiveness, hope and justice.
