James Lee Burke is in top form in his latest page-turner steeped in the lush, unsettling atmosphere that his readers have come to expect. This time, Burke's renowned Louisana cop returns to the Big Easy in a spellbinding tale of conspiracy, passion, and murder. A rainy late-summer night finds Robicheaux in a New Orleans bar, about to confront the man who may have savagely assaulted his friend, Father Jimmie Dolan, a Catholic priest who's always at the centre of controversy. But things in a Burke novel are rarely what they seem, and soon Robicheaux is back in New Iberia, probing a car crash that killed three teenage girls. A grief-crazed father and a maniacal, conflicted assassin are just a few of the characters Robicheaux meets as he is drawn deeper into a viper's nest of sordid secrets and escalating violence that sets him up for a confrontation that echoes down the lonely corridors of his own unresolved past. A masterful exploration of the troubled side of human nature and the dark corners of the heart, and peopled by familiar characters such as P.I. Clete Purcel and Robicheaux's old flame, the now-married Theodosia LeJeune, LAST CAR TO ELYSIAN FIELDS is vintage Burke - a moody, hard-hitting novel that goes the limit in its provocative blend of human drama and relentless noir suspense.
