really liked it

** spoiler alert ** I just bought a used copy of this book while traveling in PEI. I had loaned my copy several years ago and didn't get it back. This is my favorite Burke book, because Dave Robicheaux isn't the tough guy, who is always in control, in this one. Plus I loved the way the past and the present keep overlapping, which makes complete sense in the South, even if one hasn't been drugged. When I taught detective fiction my female students loved this book; most of the males hated it.

I am currently rereading it for the "not sure how manyth time." I always reread when teaching.
