    When former Klansman and piney-woods outcast Aaron Crown is finally imprisoned for a decades-old murder, it is to Detective Dave Robicheaux that he proclaims his innocence loudest. Crown seems to be a lightning rod for every kind of trouble that the state of Louisiana can unearth. A documentary film writer seeking to prove Crown’s innocence is found murdered; a button man for the New Orleans mob accuses Robicheaux of taking a pay-off to ignore Crown. But it is when Buford LaRose—scion of an old Southern family and author of a book on the Crown case—is elected governor that Dave Robicheaux’s involvement with Aaron Crown deepens to a level he can barely fathom. And it is Buford’s social-climbing wife, Karyn, with whom Robicheaux had an affair years before, who proves to be his most poisonous adversary. Filled with thrilling adventure, lightning-paced action, and street smart realism, Cadillac Jukebox is a brilliant addition to Burke’s standout Dave Robicheaux series.

    It begins and ends with a death. For months, Lucas Davenport’s men have been tracking a vicious female bank robber named Candy, and when they finally catch up with her, she does not go quietly. In the ensuing shoot-out, she dies—and Davenport’s nightmare starts, for her associates are even worse than she was, particularly her husband, a deeply violent man who swears an appropriate revenge: first he will find the names of those responsible; then he will kill those nearest and dearest to them, just the way they did Candy. So it begins. The husband of one officer is shot and killed. The wife of another is ambushed at work. When a third attack is thwarted, the pattern becomes clear to Davenport, and with an urgency born of rage and terror, he presses the hunt, desperately trying to track down the killers before they can strike again, before they can reach out for Davenport’s own loved ones. But in this effort, he may already be too late.

To discover the truth, Luke must find his estranged brother, who has disappeared from Paris where he deals antiquities on the illegal market. Awaiting Danni's return, Luke soon finds himself both a witness to and perpetrator of murder. His victim may be his brother. Meanwhile, a young Austrian woman named Natalie Hoestermann discovers information about her own father's past that also compels her to search for Danni Benami. As Luke and Natalie travel on their parallel paths across Europe, they slowly realize that their fathers' pasts are not, as they had always believed, stories of Israeli heroism and German guilt, but something much more complex and disturbing, buried deep in the time of the Holocaust.
