Widely reviewed as one of the best of Burke's novels, the reader continues to follow Robicheaux's life in the bayou country of Louisiana with all its local color and complexity of characters. As Robicheaux investigates the death of a series of young women, the author moves back and forth between the depths of human depravity and the heights of nobility.

The Mystery Book Club had an exciting first at its April meeting. British Author Tessa Harris met with the group via Skype to discuss her book The Anatomist's Apprentice. This was extraordinary given the time difference -- the author graciously joined us at midnight, her time. She discussed her professional writing, the origin of her interest in anatomists in the early 19th century, how she developed it into what will become a trilogy, with an outline of future books.
