H.M asked:

Hi, can I start at this book in the series? I don't fancy reading the fifteen before it yet! But will I be confused? Thanks.

Brian Getz It helps to have background knowledge of Dave, though you will get some in this book. It's also nice to be familiar with Dave's wife, his daughter, Alafair, and his friend Clete Purcell, but no matter what, the story stands alone.
Vicki You can start with any of them.
Dennis No you won't be confused. In each of his novels in the Robicheaux series Burke gives the reader bits of the backstory to keep you up-to-date. This is the book that "got me hooked" on this series. All are great reads, and like this book, some are very good.
