Hollywood has sent its emissaries to New Iberia Parish to film a Civil War epic in the steaming mists of the Louisiana bayou -- reawakening the ghosts of a past best left undisturbed. The restless specters wait in the shadows for cajun cop Dave Robicheaux -- as he hunts a serial butcher who is preying on the less-then-innocent young. For these spirits are the guardians of Robicheaux's darkest torments -- and they hold the key to his ultimate salvation...or a final, fatal downfall.

Burke is a very good writer but used too much metaphor and dream like sequences in what should have been a straight forward plot. I really like his flawed Robicheaux and his locales.

While a big Hollywood studio prepares to film a Civil War epic in the Louisiana bayou, a serial killer is running rampant, praying on prostitutes. Cajun police detective Dave Robicheaux is drawn into the puzzle, and begins to see links between the killings, the death of a notorious Louisiana mobster, and an unsolved murder that Robicheaux himself witnessed thirty-five years ago.
