"Novelist Aaron Holland Broussard is shattered when his daughter Fannie Mae dies suddenly. As he tries to honor her memory by saving two young men from a life of crime amid their opioid-ravaged community, he is drawn into a network of villainy that includes a violent former Klansman, a far-from-holy minister, a biker club posing as evangelicals, and a murderer who has been hiding in plain sight. Aaron's only ally is state police officer Ruby Spotted Horse, a no-nonsense woman who harbors some powerful secrets in her cellar. Despite the air of mystery surrounding her, Ruby is the only one Aaron can trust. That is, until the ghost of Fannie Mae shows up, guiding her father through a tangled web of the present and past and helping him vanquish his foes from both this world and the next. Drawn from James Lee Burke's own life experiences, Every Cloak Rolled in Blood is a devastating exploration of the nature of good and evil and a deeply moving story about the power of love and family"-- Amazon.com.

*Starred Review* Drawing poignantly on the death of his daughter Pamala (discussed in a moving introduction), Burke picks up the story of Aaron Broussard Holland decades after the events of Another Kind of Eden (2021). Now a successful novelist in his 80s, living on a farm near Missoula, Montana, Holland is grieving the sudden death of his daughter, Fannie Mae, while trying to help a young man, Jack Wetzel, who is entangled in the opioid subculture. These efforts generate conflict with the region's meth kingpin as well as with a former Klansman, but, at the same time, Holland is confronted with forces beyond the realm of the living, which is no surprise for a man who doesn't discount the possibility that unseen entities exist just the other side of our fingertips. The ghost of Fannie Mae appears and offers counsel, but there are other, less-kindly supernatural visitors, including Major Eugene Baker, who was responsible for the massacre of more than 200 Blackfeet Indians in 1870, on land near Holland's farm. As the circle of evil closes in on Holland and Native American policewoman Ruby Spotted Horse, Burke rolls together the driving themes that have dominated his workâthe inescapable presence of evil, the restorative power of love, the desecration of the planet, humanity's long slouch toward Armageddonâinto an intensely, heartrendingly personal exploration of grief.
