The 9th Dave Robicheaux novel from the SUNDAY TIMES bestselling, award-winning author of THE TIN ROOF BLOWDOWN. The call from ex-Klansman Aaron Crown couldn't have been more unexpected.
Sentenced to forty years for the decades-old shooting of a civil rights activist, Crown should have been out of Iberia Parish, Louisiana, for good. Election candidate Buford LaRose wants Detective Dave Robicheaux to ignore Aaron's calls, promising Robicheaux a lucrative job when he makes governor.
Worse still, Buford's wife, Karyn, seems unhealthily interested in getting very close to Robicheaux - just like old times ...The LaRoses, each for their own reasons, want Crown's case buried.
