In Heaven's Prisoners, best-selling author James Lee Burke introduces the gritty, tough and compassionate former police officer Dave Robicheaux in our first novel of this blockbuster series. Burke's muscular and relentless prose brings characters and events to life with the battering energy of a Bayou thunderstorm. Robicheaux, a recovering alcoholic, has retired to bayou country when a small plane full of passengers-and trouble-drops out of the sky near his boat. But as he rescues the only survivor, a girl he names Alafair, the crash soon plunges him into a netherworld of murder and deception. Trapped by events he cannot control, the usually quiet and gentle Robicheaux protects himself and his loved ones the only way he knows how: with a fist and a gun. Mark Hammer's impassioned narration brings an earthy vitality to Robicheaux and the complex characters who inhabit his world.
