Devereaux mystery thriller series, which combines the
atmosphere of James Lee Burke and Craig Johnson with the
noir brilliance of Robert Crais
An arsonist is
targeting schools in Birmingham, Alabama—with devastating
effect. Detective Devereaux—a man you can't quite trust and
should never ignore—must put a stop to the elusive
pyromaniac's reign of terror before more damage is done. Or
worse, before students' lives are lost. But as Devereaux
sifts through the ashes of the case, a grisly discovery at a
burned-out school sends the investigation spiraling in a
new, terrifying direction. The detective and his partner are
dragged into a nightmare world by revelations of gruesome
rituals, the disappearance of local citizens, and
allegations against city officials of shocking crimes that
stretch back decades.
With innocent lives on the
line, progress is hampered by friction between the police
department and the FBI, and interference from factions of
the local underworld complicate matters further. Devereaux
doesn't make excuses for his willingness to work outside
the lines, but just as he needs to be at the top of his
game, he's rocked by echoes from his troubled past that
threaten to engulf his daughter and girlfriend—and fracture
the life he's only recently begun to rebuild.
