Description

The critically acclaimed thirtieth entry from New York Times bestselling author James Lee Burke, featuring Texas Sheriff Hackberry Holland in an epic tale that is equal parts thriller, Western, and literary masterpiece.

James Lee Burke returns to the Texas border town of his bestseller Rain Gods, where a serial killer presumed dead is very much alive…and where sheriff Hackberry Holland, now a widower, fights for survival—his own, and of the citizens he’s sworn to protect.

When alcoholic ex-boxer Danny Boy Lorca witnesses a man tortured to death in the desert, Hackberry’s investigation leads him to Anton Ling, a mysterious Chinese woman known for sheltering illegals. Ling denies any knowledge of the attack, but something in her aristocratic beauty seduces Hack into overlooking that she is as dangerous as the men she harbors. And when soulless Preacher Jack Collins reemerges, the cold-blooded killer may prove invaluable to Hackberry. This time, he and the Preacher have a common enemy.

    Really good book. What I liked best was that as situations worsened, the characters stayed themselves. Interesting the way good and evil worked together but stayed both good and evil.

    Purchased this book from iBooks and it is nothing more than 44 blank pages; so, I have no idea if this is a good read or not. It's likely a very good read because James Lee Burke wrote; however, based on this iBooks eBook, I'll never know.

    Book is about 200 pages too long. Should be a western mystery story, not a psycho sociological treatise on man's inhumanity to man. Too many flashbacks and extended descriptions of flora and fauna, although they are well crafted. And way too many characters although each is well developed.

    The sheriff is 80 years old and chasing bad guys all over Mexico, the young, overweight deputy has the hots for the sheriff. Right. The entire substance of this story is too much to be believable.

    Burkes 30th novel no doubt is his best one yet. I've seen a lot of people crying over the violence in the book. Silly rabbits, why you reading a James lee Burke book then?
