For all those who love James Lee Burke, this book will not disappoint. In this early novel we get to know the rich characters as well as the distinctive setting which becomes another character whose presence stalks the story of ravaged childhoods and their resultant effects on the lives of the now grown adults. Burke delves beneath the surface of his characters and their lives to explore the complexities of the human heart.A wonderful read!
