What the Critics Say:

"The novel is steeped in complex personality studies, lyrical prose, and richly drawn depictions of

Mr. Burke's beloved bayou country." (The New York Times)
"With peerless naturalistic descriptions and lush, metaphysical imagery, Burke creates another

challenging morality play for his flawed, everyman hero." (Publishers Weekly)
"Everything that makes this series so compelling - the elegiac, seductively lyrical prose; the

complex character of Robicheaux; the lovingly evoked bayou setting - is here in abundance....The

fact remains that no serious reader of hard-boiled fiction should ever miss a moment of Dave

Robicheaux in action." (Booklist)

Publisher's Summary:

A troubled young woman breezes into Detective Robicheaux's hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana. She

happens to be the daughter of his friend: a friend he witnessed gunned down in a bank robbery, a

tragedy that forever changed Robicheaux's life.

The twists begin when Trish Klein, the only offspring of Robicheaux's Vietnam-era buddy, starts

passing marked hundred-dollar bills in local casinos. Is she a good kid gone bad? A victim's child

seeking revenge? A promiscuous beauty seducing everyone good within her grasp? And can Robicheaux

make peace with his friend's murder in time to figure out how a local mobster fits into all the

schemes and death? Will his life be whole again when it has been shattered by so much tragedy?

In Pegasus Descending, James Lee Burke explores psyches as much as evidence, and tries to make

sense of human behavior as well as his characters' crimes. Richly atmospheric, frightening in its

sudden violence, and replete with the sort of puzzles only the best crime fiction creates, Burke's

latest novel is an unforgettable roller coaster of passion, surprise, and regret."> />"> />"> />"> />"> />"> />"> />"> />"> />"> />"> />"> Rar Pass = polar
