Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1988

With his new wife, Annie, and a small fishing business on the bayou, Dave Robicheaux seems to have found the peace that eluded him in his former life as an alcoholic homicide detective. But when a small plane crashes near his boat, leaving a refugee child as its only survivor, tragedy intrudes upon his happiness. Mark Hammer's slow, gritty drawl captures the complexities of Robicheaux's character--idealist and cynic, peacemaker and gunfighter, victim and avenger--and the many moods of Burke's writing, from languid, poetic descriptions of the heat-glazed geography to up-close depictions of violence and violation. A perfect marriage of the written and spoken word. J.E.T. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
