Crusader's Cross

A Dave Robicheaux Novel

Crusader's Cross

FOR DETECTIVE DAVE ROBICHEAUX, memories—including those of a strange and violent summer from his youth—are best left alone. But a dying man’s confession forces Robicheaux to resurrect a decades-old mystery with a missing woman at its heart. Her name may or may not have been Ida Durbin, and Robicheaux’s half brother, Jimmie, paid a brutal price for entering her world. Now the truth will plunge Robicheaux into the manipulations of New Orleans’s wealthiest family, into a complex love affair of his own, and into hot pursuit of a killer expanding his territory beyond the Big Easy at a frightening pace—in this darkly suspenseful work of literature from "America’s best novelist" (The Denver Post).
