You think it is hot out there?

Intense heat was what Dave Robicheaux felt in James Lee Burke’s 14th entry in this award-winning series set in New Iberia, La. This time our unemployed, widowed, ex-homicide detective came up against a wealthy family, the New Orleans Mafia and several gruesome killings.
