James Lee Burke's 15th entry in the Dave Robicheaux series, Pegasus DescendingPegasus Descending by James Lee Burke, continues his tradition of writing outstanding, literate, mystery fiction, debuting at the top of the Barnes & Noble.com mystery bestseller list this week, third at Amazon.com. Detective Dave Robicheaux is facing the most painful and dangerous case of his career. A troubled young woman breezes into his hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana. She happens to be the daughter of Robicheaux's onetime best friend -- a friend he witnessed gunned down in a bank robbery, a tragedy that forever changed Robicheaux's life. Can Robicheaux make his peace with the demons that have haunted him since his friend's murder so many years ago? Can he figure out how a local mobster fits into all the schemes and deaths? Can Robicheaux's life be whole again when it has been shattered by so much tragedy? Publishers Weekly writes that, "With peerless naturalistic descriptions and lush, metaphysical imagery, Burke creates another challenging morality play for his flawed, everyman hero."
