Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"The Shondell and Balangie families are enemies in New Iberia's criminal underworld, but teen musicians Johnny Shondell and Isolde Balangie have fallen in love and run away. As Dave Robicheaux investigates the couple's whereabouts, he runs afoul of Isolde's mafioso father, who puts a hit on Robicheaux and his partner, Clete Purcel. The assassin is unlike any they have ever faced: he can induce hallucinations and travels on a ghost ship that materializes without warning. In order to defeat him and rescue Johnny and Isolde, Robicheaux will have to overcome the demons that have tormented him throughout his adult life"--Page 4 of cover.

    *Starred Review* With this all-enveloping mix of horror and crime, Burke concludes a trilogy that also includes The New Iberia Blues (2019) and Robicheaux (2018). All three books find Cajun detective Dave Robicheaux tackling powerful men with evil visions of racist grandeur. The supernatural has never been far from Robicheaux's world, but here it's front and center, mainly in the form of a time-traveling entity from the sixteenth century, Gideon Richetti, a self-proclaimed revelator capable of unimaginable carnage but also looking for atonement, like a demon trying to follow the 12-step program. Richetti is connected to Mark Shondell, a more flesh-and-blood incarnation of evil and the man with a plan to make America great again as a bastion of hatred. It starts for Robicheaux with a vision of wine-dark waves that seem right out of Homer, and soon he and running mate Clete Purcel are thrashing about in those waves, seemingly going in and out of time as they try to save Shondell's son, Johnny, and his lover, Isolde Balangie, from the clutches of Johnny's father. The supernatural elements may be difficult for those new to the series, but for longtime Burke readers, they feel just right. Meditations on time and the power of the past have always been at the heart of Burke's vision, and here they reach a new level of poetic rhapsody.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Burke's fortieth book and twenty-third Robicheaux novel mark a landmark event in the celebrated career of the 83-year-old crime-fiction master.
