Synopsis

The thirteenth novel in the highly acclaimed Dave Robicheaux series.

It is a rainy late-summer's night in New Orleans. Detective Dave Robicheaux is about to confront the man who may have savagely assaulted his friend, Father Jimmie Dolan, a Catholic priest who's always at the centre of controversy. But things are never as they seem and soon Robicheaux is back in New Iberia, probing a car crash that killed three teenage girls. A grief-crazed father and a maniacal assassin are just a few of the characters Robicheaux meets as he is drawn deeper into a web of secrets and violence.

A masterful exploration of the troubled side of human nature and the dark corners of the heart, Last Car to Elysian Fields is vintage Burke - moody, hard-hitting, with his trademark blend of human drama and relentless noir suspense.

“A lyrical and lovely novel that takes Burke back to the top of the crimewriting tree where he richly belongs.” INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
