"Billy Bob's relationship with Lucas's family is not an easy one - years back he was a close friend of Mrs Smothers, too close according to her husband Vernon. And when Lucas overhears some gruesome tales of serial murder from a neighbouring cell in the lock-up, the waters are muddied even further and Lucas himself looks like a candidate for an untimely death." -- Google books.

I'm a big fan of James Lee Burke's long-running Dave Robicheaux series, but am less familiar with his other series, which features a Texas attorney named Billy Bob Holland. I enjoy everything he writes, but didn't find this as compelling and tightly plotted as his best work.

Wow! A great story with rich evocative prose. No one writes with so much depth as James Lee Burke. Holland is much like the beloved Robicheaux, another of Burke's characters. Both men have an ingrained and deep moral code that motivates their common brimstone righteousness.

Though15 years after its first release, still a thriller to read; wall to wall characters with secretive past, misguided youth, ruthless killers and corrupted souls.
