But before Dave can stop Surrette from harming those he loves most hell have to do battle with Love Younger an enigmatic petrochemical magnate seeking to build an oil pipeline from Alberta to Texas and Wyatt Dixon a rodeo clown with a dark past whom Burke fans will recall from his Billy Bob Holland novels. Drawing on real events that took place in Wichita Kansas over a twenty-year span Light of the World reaffirms Robicheauxs status as one of the most successfully sustained creations in contemporary crime fiction (The Washington Post Book World).
