ABOUT THE AUTHOR
ABOUT THE BOOK
There are those who vanish into the steaming New Orleans night - and it is part time Private Investigator and blues aficionado Lew Griffin's job to find them. A prisoner of the bottle, his past and his skin, Griffin knows every hidden corner of Hell. But the disappearance of a militant woman activist is about to carry the brilliant, tormented black P.I. ever closer to a nightmare that threatens to hit him where he lives...and more brutally than he ever imagined possible.
One of the very few lights from Lew Griffin's dark and violent past has flickered out. His one-time lover, La Verne Adams is dead-and her daughter, Alouette, has vanished into a seamy, dead-end world of users and abusers... leaving behind a crack-addicted infant and a mystery. Now an inescapable obligation to an old friend is drawing the tormented black ex- p.i. to danger like a moth to a flame. And there will be no turning back when his history comes calling and the dying begins again.
James Sallis writes crime novels that read like literature. - Judith Freeman, Los Angeles Times
