"Detective Dave Robicheaux returns in another adventure. Only this time, he travels from New Iberia Parish to the wilds of Montana. Swan Peak is the sequel to Black Cherry Blues, the third title in the Robicheaux series. In it, Clete Purcel has to confront ghosts from his past, namely the fact he poured sand in the fuel tanks of an airplane owned by Sally Dio, resulting supposedly in Dio's death. The story also deals with Jimmy Dale Greenwood, an escaped convict who was at one time a fairly famous country singer. His lover is Jamie Sue Wellstone, now the wife of one of the richest men in the West. The larger story deals with country music, the use of fraudulent ministries to garner support for nefarious political enterprises, and two brothers who are the sons of the most famous wildcatter in Texas oil history. Perhaps the most striking character, however, is an ex-Miami roller derby queen by the name of Candace Sweeney. Her lover is a Texas gunbull who was a guard at Abu Ghraib Prison."--Fantastic Fiction website.

So many characters, but I finally got it. I liked the story and most of the characters. Good reader.

On a scale of 1-to-5, this is a 5, and I wish I had a higher number to give it. The way Burke pieces together the mystery is perfection. But he still manages to take us deep into the human strengths and frailities of his characters without losing the focus of the story. It's a morality play without preaching. At the end you know there is redemption, forgiveness, hope and justice.
