A New York Times Notable Book for 2002.
Author Bio
James Lee Burke
Though he began his writing career writing literary novels, James Lee Burke turned to writing popular mysteries in 1987, with a series of novels featuring New Orleans ex-cop Dave Robichaux. After his wife and father are murdered, Robichaux explores the darker sides of New Orleans from the perspective of a man who has been around the block a few times. Burke's hard-boiled prose style has earned him legions of fans, numerous bestsellers, critical acclaim, and an Edgar Award for best novel.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"No question about it, Legion is one of Burke's finest villains -- a creature of immense force, fueled by pure malignancy, but not without the shred of humanity that makes a monster memorable. If Robicheaux is confounded by Legion, it's because he reminds him of another tormented soul he knows well, 'a violent creature who rose with me in the morning and lived quietly inside my skin.' The man he calls 'the real enemy.'" - Marilyn Stasio 06/12/2002
