This is one of Burke's best efforts, in my opinion. Robicheaux is on a fairly even keel, his family life is stable, his personal demons harnessed and put to good use, his crusade against evil aided and encouraged by the ghost of General John Bell Hood (it works, it really does), and Clete Purcel nowhere in sight. By turns poetic and brutal, as always. Burke can almost make me nostalgic for Louisiana mosquitoes.
