By A. C. Baantjer

De Cock verzucht tegen zijn collega Vledder dat hij minstens een part jaar verlost zou willen zijn van moord en doodslag. Hun overpeinzingen over de misdaad worden ruw verstoord door een jonge guy die een bizar verhaal komt vertellen. Zijn vroegere vriendin Angela is de avond tevoren door een taxichauffeur met een bos rode rozen naar het grachtenpand van haar nieuwe vriend gelokt. Daar vond zij de guy dood voor de schouw, met een koord om zijn nek en met twee ruiten op zijn voorhoofd gebrandmerkt. Nog voor De Cock en Vledder met Angela hebben gesproken, nemen ze zelf een kijkje op de plaats delict.

Amazon Review
In the pantheon of yank crime writing giants, it'd be argued that James Lee Burke reigns very best. Elmore Leonard's place is, after all, safe, yet magnificent even though his books are, they don't have the ambition and sheer heft of Burke. And the fellow who was once probably Burke’s nearest rival, James Ellroy, is far much less constant (even the writer now admits that his final booklet, the infuriatingly written The chilly Six Thousand, used to be a misfire). We've been avidly eating Burke's shiny and sprawling images of yankee society (and its miscreants) not less than way back to Lay Down My Sword and safeguard in 1971, and -- intriguingly -- Burke's new e-book, Rain Gods, travels again to that previous quantity and plucks out a personality to be centre degree within the new ebook: he's the cousin of Burke's cherished protagonist Billy Bob Holland. Hackberry Holland is the sheriff of a small Texas city, and he's relatively essentially the most idiomatic (and totally rounded) characters that the writer has created (some British readers may well locate his moniker irresistibly comedian, however the slightest acquaintance with the booklet will quickly get them previous that).

Holland comes around the our bodies of 9 Thai girls who've been cursorily interred in shallow graves close to a church. those murdered prostitutes, Holland is aware, are the end of an iceberg, and signify the best expert problem he has ever confronted. And the particular map of corruption and intimidation that he comes up opposed to stretches from a felony in New Orleans (for whom the main severe violence is quotidian) to a bothered veteran of the Iraq struggle suffering from his personal demons (as is Holland himself --- he's, finally, a James Lee Burke protagonist). yet via a long way the main sinister of his rivals is an murderer who lives by way of the tenets of the Bible, and is going by means of the soubriquet The Preacher.

Admirers of Burke (and they're legion) are inclined to forget about stories and easily purchase every one new ebook. First-time purchasers, notwithstanding, should still notice that this is often the writer on kinetic shape, offering the entire components that he's celebrated for with pungency and panache. there's even an advantage in the event you are immune to the marginally proselytising spiritual pressure in Burke's paintings: his malevolent bible-quoting villain right here firmly places paid to the concept Burke is subtly performing some PR paintings for the Catholic Church. this can be the nice James Lee Burke on whatever like classic shape. --Barry Forshaw --This textual content refers to an out of print or unavailable variation of this title.

Non voglio pensare a questo, adesso - disse decisamente. - Se ci penso, mi conturbo troppo. Non vi è ragione che le cose non vadano come io desidero... se Ashley mi ama; e so che mi ama! Sollevò il mento e i suoi occhi dalle lunghe ciglia nere brillarono nel chiaro di luna. Elena non le aveva mai detto che desiderio e raggiungimento sono due cose diverse; la vita non le aveva insegnato che il correre non sempre significa raggiungere il palio. Rimase nella luce argentea col coraggio che si rafforzava sempre più e facendo i progetti che una sedicenne può fare quando la vita è sempre stata per lei così piacevole che ogni sconfitta pare impossibile, e un bell'abito e una fresca carnagione sono per lei le armi che vincono il destino.

Elena si era avvicinata al caminetto per prendere il suo rosario dalla scatoletta in cui era sempre, quando Mammy parlò con fermezza. - Andare a preparare qualche cosa e tu mangerai, - disse Mammy con la fronte aggrottata per l'indignazione; e si avviò per il vestibolo verso la cucina. - Pork, dire a cuoca di preparare piatti. Mentre le assi del pavimento scricchiolavano sotto il suo peso, il soliloquio che aveva cominciato a borbottare quando era entrata, diventò più forte ed intelligibile, giungendo chiaramente alle orecchie della famiglia nella stanza da pranzo.

Certo non le verrebbe neanche in mente di dirgli audacemente che lo amava; questo no. Ma questo era un particolare che non la turbava. Aveva già sbrogliato simili situazioni altre volte e lo farebbe ancora. A letto, col chiaro di luna che la bagnava tutta, si figurò la scena. Vedeva l'espressione di sorpresa e di felicità che gli illuminerebbe il volto nel momento in cui Ashley avrebbe compreso che ella lo amava, e udiva le parole che egli le direbbe chiedendole di essere sua moglie. Naturalmente essa gli risponderebbe che non poteva pensare a sposare un uomo che era fidanzato con un'altra, ma egli insisterebbe; e finalmente lei si lascerebbe persuadere.
