Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0786889187, Mass Market Paperback)One of Burke's series of crime stories set in the Louisiana bayou country, this story chronicles the difficult mission of Sheriff's Deputy Dave Robicheaux to confirm the guilt of a redneck named Aaron Crown in the killing of a civil rights leader back in the 1960s, and to find out what Crown's recent arrest has to do with an upcoming gubernatorial election. His task becomes mired in the history and inbred politics of New Iberia and thwarted by a ghoulish hit man who crawls out of the swamps to silence police informants. A wild story with enough oddball characters to make it interesting and worthwhile.

A Louisiana farmer is jailed for the murder, 30 years earlier of a black civil rights leader. The farmer claims he is innocent and asks Dave Robicheaux to help him prove it. Not easy, as it suits a lot of people to have the case closed.
