Baker
& Taylor

Precariously content in his strict AA lifestyle at the side of a woman he loves, New Orleans detective Dave Robicheaux finds his peace shattered by the appearance of a woman who is passing stolen money and the suicide of another woman who may be the daughter of Dave's long-time friend. Simultaneous.

Simon and Schuster
Dave Robicheaux is back in a dangerous mystery that involves stolen money, gritty casinos, and a beautiful girl with connections to his past.

When a nice young woman named Trish Klein blows into Louisiana, passing hundred-dollar bills in local casinos, detective Dave Robicheaux senses a storm bearing down on his new life of contentment… Twenty-five years ago, lost in a drunken haze in Florida, Robicheaux was too far gone to save his friend and fellow ’Nam vet Dallas Klein, murdered in cold blood for gambling debts. Now, the arrival of Dallas’s daughter opens a door locked long ago, and extracting her motives points Robicheaux to the suicide of a local “good girl” pulled into a vortex of power, sex, and death. It’s Robicheaux’s most personally painful case—a roller coaster of passion, surprise, and regret—and it may be his deadliest.

I'm not sure how many books in the Dave Robicheaux series I've read, but there are a lot. If you like one, you'll probably like them all. "Pegasus Descending" is from 2006 and is set, as most of them are, in New Orleans. What separates Burke from other crime writers is that his stories are not just great thrillers, but have a very deep sense of evil, injustice, and the flaws of humanity. Along with James Ellroy, I think he's the greatest living crime writer.
