it was amazing
Read in February, 2011

I am half way through this book and it is the 15th or so book which follows Detective Dave Robicheaux, a Louisiana detective. This book puts Dave in New Orleans right after hurricane Katrina. It is obvious that the author did a lot of research. It is a poignant commentary on the race wars that broke out after the storm. Even if you don't know the character, the book is awesome. (But I do suggest Neon Rain, which was the first book in the series, so you can at least get to know the character before you dive into this one).
