    In Light of the World, sadist and serial killer Asa Surrette narrowly escaped the death penalty for the string of heinous murders. But following a series of damning articles written by Dave Robicheaux’s daughter Alafair about possible other crimes committed by Surette, the killer escapes from a prison transport van and heads to Montana - where an unsuspecting Dave happens to have gone to take in the sweet summer air, accompanied by Alafair, his wife Molly, faithful partner Clete, and Clete’s newfound daughter, Gretchen Horowitz.

    Dave says: "Burke is still the best"
    "This is getting kind of formulaic"

    Any additional comments?

    Love the characters and the settings, but really the plot lines are becoming predictable. Here, as in several previous novels, we have:The evil wealthy capitalist oil baron ruining the environment for his own greed. The shallow, callow and unlikeable son of the above.Greedy capitalist living in huge compound guarded by nasty goons.Poor, downtrodden, but noble victims of the above greedy capitalist (Native Americans in this case). Clete getting into fistfights.A psycho on the loose. Allafair in danger!Dave butting heads with fellow lawmen as he continues to ponder the nature and existence of people who do bad things. Same old stuff. Cheers
