Description

A powerful and unforgettable thriller from 'one of the finest American writers' GUARDIANDanny Boy Lorca was used to having apocalyptic visions - the beatings he'd taken in jail and the booze he drank to forget them made sure of that.

But what he saw and heard that night out in the desert was more terrifying than anything even his battered spirit could have conjured.

A man tortured to death. Slowly and methodically and with inhuman cruelty.When Danny Boy tells his tale to Sheriff Hackberry Holland, Hack knows something evil has leaked over the border into his corner of South Texas. What he doesn't realize is that this brutal slaying is just the beginning of a twisted three-way manhunt that will pit a psychotic killer seeking release for the souls of his murdered children against a religious maniac in love with death, and a Russian gangster whose name is a byword for fear...Praise for one of the great American crime writers, James Lee Burke:'James Lee Burke is the heavyweight champ, a great American novelist whose work, taken individually or as a whole, is unsurpassed.' Michael Connelly'A gorgeous prose stylist.' Stephen King'Richly deserves to be described now as one of the finest crime writers America has ever produced.'

Sheriff Hackberry Holland is a splendid creation and this is his third outing. Burke invests heavily in his characters in a tale of absolution and redemption. All the villains have some form of internal turmoil, which is captured through Burke's detailed exploration of their psyches and whilst the book may be deliberately paced because of this it is an engrossing read right up to the explosive finale.
