Swan Peak by James Lee Burke

Swan Peak finds Dave Robicheaux, his wife, Molly, and his buddy, Clete, leaving behind post-Katrina Louisiana for a Montana vacation. Trouble quickly finds Clete as he encounters a mob goon from his past. The bodies of two college students are found near the ranch where they're staying. The suspects in the murders revolve around two brothers who are rich Texas oilmen, Ridley and Leslie Wellstone. Leslie is married to a country singer, Jamie Sue, and her ex-boyfriend has escaped from prison, and he's being tailed by the prison guard who had been brutalizing him. Dave and Clete are unable to resist being drawn into the violence and murders in a place far from home. James Lee Burke's latest mystery has received mostly positive reviews with BookReporter.com saying, "Only James Lee Burke can weave a complex plot with so many disparate time frames and characters into a cohesive and brilliantly written novel."
