A BRUTAL LEGACY OF CRUELTY AND HATE IS AWAKENED IN THE BAYOU

When Sonny Boy Marsallus returns to New Iberia after fleeing

for Central America to avoid the wrath of the powerful Giacana

family, his old troubles soon follow. Meanwhile Dave

Robicheaux becomes entangled in the affairs of the Fontenot

family, descendants of sharecroppers whose matriarch helped

raise Dave as a child. They are in danger of losing the land

they've lived on for more than a century.

As Dave tries to discover who wants the land so badly, he finds

himself in increasing peril from a lethal, rag tag alliance of

local mobsters and a hired assassin with a shady past. And

when a seemingly innocent woman is brutally murdered, all

roads intersect, and Sonny Boy is in the middle.

With the usual James Lee Burke combination of brilliant

action and unforgettable characters, Burning Angel is

the author at his best -- showing that old hatreds and new

ones are not that far apart.
