Feast Day of Fools

James Lee Burke: Feast Day of Fools (UK 2012)

From the Publisher:
A powerful and unforgettable thriller from the acclaimed genre master.
Danny Boy Lorca was used to having apocalyptic visions - the beatings he'd taken in jail and the booze he drank to forget them made sure of that - but what he saw and heard that night out in the desert was more terrifying than anything even his battered spirit could have conjured. A man tortured to death. Slowly and methodically and with inhuman cruelty.

When Danny Boy tells his tale to Sheriff Hackberry Holland, Hack knows something evil has leaked over the border into his corner of South Texas. What he doesn't realize is that this brutal slaying is just the beginning of a twisted three-way manhunt that will pit a psychotic killer seeking release for the souls of his murdered children against a religious maniac in love with death, and a Russian gangster whose name is a byword for fear...

Feast Day of Fools

James Lee Burke: Feast Day of Fools (USA 2012)

From the Publisher:
In his celebrated thirtieth novel, James Lee Burke returns to the Texas border town setting of his bestseller Rain Gods, "a riveting novel [that evokes] past American greats, such as Steinbeck and Cain" (Lincoln Journal Star). Now, a monstrous killer presumed dead is very much alive... and Sheriff Hackberry Holland must fight for survival -- his own, and that of the citizens he's sworn to protect.

Still mourning the loss of his cherished wife and navigating an almost-romance with his decades-younger deputy, Pam Tibbs, Hackberry feeds off the deeds of evil men to keep his own demons at bay. When alcoholic ex-boxer Danny Boy Lorca witnesses a man tortured to death in the desert, Hack's investigation leads him to Anton Ling, a regal, mysterious Chinese woman known for sheltering illegals. Ling denies having seen the victim or the perpetrators, but there is something in her steely demeanor and aristocratic beauty that seduces Hackberry into overlooking that she is just as dangerous as the men she harbors. Danger increases tenfold with the return of serial murderer Preacher Jack Collins, who has reemerged with a calm, single-minded zeal for killing more terrifying than the muzzle flash of his signature machine gun. But this time, he and Sheriff Holland may have a common enemy.

Feast Day of Fools

James Lee Burke: Feast Day of Fools (USA 2011)

From the Publisher:
Celebrated crime master and two-time Edgar Award winner James Lee Burke returns with a gorgeously crafted, brutally resonant chronicle of violence along the Texas-Mexico border.

Sheriff Hackberry Holland patrols a small Southwest Texas border town, meting out punishment and delivering justice in his small square of this magnificent but lawless land. When an alcoholic ex-boxer named Danny Boy Lorca begs to be locked up after witnessing a man tortured to death by a group of bandits, Hack and his deputy, Pam Tibbs, slowly extract the Indian man's gruesome tale. It becomes clear that the desert contains a multitude of criminals, including serial murderer Preacher Jack Collins (whom The New York Times Book Review called "one of Burke's most inspired villains").

Holland's investigation leads him to Anton Ling, a mysterious Chinese woman whose steely demeanor and aristocratic beauty compel Hackberry to return to her home again and again as the investigation unfolds.

James Lee Burke is at his engrossing and atmospheric best in this, his thirtieth novel, as Hackberry plumbs the depths of man's inhumanity to man -- from killers-for-hire, to the U.S. government, to the misguided souls in search of a better life across the border.

James Lee Burke: Feast Day of Fools. A Novel. Simon & Schuster, ISBN: 9781451643114 (September, 2011), 463 p., $26.99.
