    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    Overall

    If you like Burke, this is one of his best. The writing is excellent and very evocative of the time and place - this time being post-Katrina. You have to be prepared for low life miscreants and gratuitous violence, however. The narration by Will Patton is some of the best in any audio book I've listened to. I highly recommend this book. The only disappointment, however, is the ending - which seems to come too quickly, is not as well developed as the rest of the book, and is not as credible as the rest of the story.
