*Reader’s Note*
This has been posted on the DB-Book Review list as well.

Hello to all.
This book is part of the Hackberry series.
It was, and it wasn’t.
I’m not sure I’m going to be able to at all explain what I mean.
At first when I began to read this book I felt it was completely out of context with the previous books.
Then it wasn’t.
It never said, but given what Hackberry and all the others were doing and how they were left in the last book I wonder…
It never said but I think Hackberry might have been having a near death experience or a dream.
The characters in this book were in many ways related to others in previous books.
There were two from the Robicheaux series.
They were of course doing different things, but they were related, and the things were similar.
What made them different was the time period in which this book was going on.
Do I recommend this book?
Did I enjoy it as much as the previous books?
Yes, but not in the same way.
It gave me much food for thought. I saw Hack in a whole new way, and I felt he was trying to resolve regrets in his life.
I am interested in reading the next in the series because I want to see if what I suspect is so.
Here is the NLS info and if anyone else has read this book I’d be glad to have your take on it.
I will say that I felt the book was a bit draggy in spots and could’ve been tightened up a bit.
Anyhow, that’s what I thought.
Here’s NLS.
