Waterstones Says

The twenty-third Dave Robicheaux novel puts a distinctive southern noir spin on Romeo and Juliet as the star-crossed heirs of Louisiana’s biggest crime dynasties run away together. Muscular, visceral and yet shaded with a battered romanticism, A Private Cathedral pitches Robicheaux into his toughest case yet.

From the wreckage of Louisiana's oldest and family rivalry, Detective Dave Robicheaux faces his most sinister enemy yet ...

Isolde and Johnny - the star-crossed teenage heirs to New Iberia's criminal empires - have run away together, and Robicheaux is tasked with finding them. But when his investigation brings him too close to both Isolde's mother and her father's mistress, the venomous mafioso orders a hit on Robicheaux and his partner, Clete Purcel.

In order to rescue the young lovers, and save himself, Robicheaux must face a terrifying, time-travelling, superhuman hitman capable of inflicting horrifying hallucinations on his victims, and overcome the demons that have tormented him his whole life...
