Detective Dave Robicheaux, his wife Molly and daughter Alafair are vacationing in Montana. But evil, it seems, has followed them into this wild paradise.
Someone is stalking Alafair, and Dave begins to suspect that it's a convicted serial killer she interviewed two years ago - even though he’s supposed to be dead.
Is Alafair the target of a depraved serial killer, or has she unwittingly crossed paths with a murderous psychopath closer to home?

What does Will Patton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Will Paton's accents are brilliant. He brings each character to life and while at first the local dialects can sometimes be a bit tricky to understand for us Brits, you soon get used to it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was one of those books that I could not wait to get back in the car and carry on listening to. If there was one criticism, it would be that it was a little too long and some scenes did not add much to the plot.

Any additional comments?

This was my first James Lee Burke novel and he is so descriptive, you feel like you are stood next to the characters in Montana as it is happening. He also has a very dry sense of humor with some excellent "one liners". I now intend to buy the full " Dave Robicheaux" series.
