The filming of a Civil War movie forces Dave Robicheaux to confront demons that stand in the way of his salvation.
When Hollywood invades New Iberia Parish to film a Civil War epic, restless specters waiting in the shadows for Louisiana detective Dave Robicheaux are reawakened—ghosts of a history best left undisturbed. Hunting a serial killer preying on the lawless young, Robicheaux comes up close and personal with the elusive guardians of his darkest torments—who hold the key to his ultimate salvation…or a final, fatal downfall.
In this “entertaining, satisfying, thought-provoking” (The Baltimore Sun) Dave Robicheaux mystery, James Lee Burke explores new narrative territory with qualified success, leading his Cajun detective into a series of dreamlike encounters with a troop of Confederate soldiers under General John Bell Hood.
