By Leif GW Persson
"Den här romanen är en ond saga för vuxna barn och om det inte hade varit för den siste tsaren av Ryssland, Nikolaj II, Englands premiärminister Sir Winston Churchill, Rysslands president Vladimir Putin och kriminalkommissarie Evert Bäckström vid Västerortspolisen i Stockholm, skulle det som den handlar om aldrig ha hänt. I den meningen är det en berättelse om det samlade och slutliga resultatet av de handlingar som fyra män genomför över en interval på mer än hundra år.
Fyra män som aldrig träffade varandra, som förvisso levde sina liv i skilda världar, och där den äldste av dem blev mördad fyrtio år innan den yngste av dem ens var född. Och som så ofta förr, oavsett i vilket sällskap eller sammanhang som han nu har hamnat, är det också Evert Bäckström som kommer att sätta punkt för historien."

In the pantheon of yankee crime writing giants, it would be argued that James Lee Burke reigns very best. Elmore Leonard's place is, in fact, safe, yet outstanding notwithstanding his books are, they don't have the ambition and sheer heft of Burke. And the guy who was once probably Burke’s nearest rival, James Ellroy, is way much less constant (even the writer now admits that his final ebook, the infuriatingly written The chilly Six Thousand, used to be a misfire). We've been avidly eating Burke's shiny and sprawling photographs of yankee society (and its miscreants) a minimum of way back to Lay Down My Sword and protect in 1971, and -- intriguingly -- Burke's new ebook, Rain Gods, travels again to that previous quantity and plucks out a personality to be centre degree within the new booklet: he's the cousin of Burke's loved protagonist Billy Bob Holland. Hackberry Holland is the sheriff of a small Texas city, and he's fairly probably the most idiomatic (and absolutely rounded) characters that the writer has created (some British readers might locate his moniker irresistibly comedian, however the slightest acquaintance with the e-book will quickly get them earlier that).
Holland comes around the our bodies of 9 Thai ladies 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 characterize the best expert problem he has ever confronted. And the precise 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 veteran of the Iraq struggle being affected by his personal demons (as is Holland himself --- he's, in spite of everything, a James Lee Burke protagonist). yet via a long way the main sinister of his rivals is an murderer who lives via the tenets of the Bible, and is going through the soubriquet The Preacher.
Admirers of Burke (and they're legion) are inclined to forget about reports and easily purchase each one new publication. First-time dealers, notwithstanding, should still observe that this can be the writer on kinetic shape, offering all of the parts that he's celebrated for with pungency and panache. there's even an advantage if you are proof against the marginally proselytising spiritual pressure in Burke's paintings: his malevolent bible-quoting villain right here firmly places paid to the concept that Burke is subtly performing some PR paintings for the Catholic Church. this can be the good 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.

He founded the Bureau of Forensic Ballistics in New York, and saw his partner, Phillip O.
