by James Lee Burke

New York: Hyperion, [1993]. First edition. One of 150 numbered editions signed by the author. Gilt lettering on spine. Fine in shrink-wrapped slipcase. Several local hookers have been murdered, and mobster "Baby Feet" Balboni is back in New Iberia, Louisiana, co-producing a Civil War epic. Elrod Sykes, psychic actor in the film has a real problem with drinking. Under threat of a drunk driving charge, Elrod offers Dave Robicheaux information in exchange for leniency. He takes the detective to the skeletal remains of a man whose murder Dave witnessed thirty years before. Convinced that Baby Feet is the key to both the old murder and the new serial killings of prostitutes, Detective Dave Robicheaux investigates.
