Detective Dave Rabicheaux is obsessed with the murder of his mother. He longs to solve the most important investigation of his career...and life. He must set the record straight. Was his mother murdered, or not? And why? Did crooked cops kill his mother? And if they did, how far does the trail lead? To the top levels of law enforcement in the state of Louisiana? He must use his friends at the bottom, and in high places in Louisiana to complete the investigation. The bait is set. How far will the villains--dirty cops, hit men, etc.--run with the line? You're sure to find out, because when the hook's set, the actions of the villains brings the true killers out into the daylight. On the way to solving his mother's murder, Detective Dave Robicheaux must deal with the process society sanctions more and more each day: executions. The murder of his mother haunts him, and so does the forthcoming execution of a black woman accused of murder. A double-edged sword, that tears Dave apart. An excellent read!
