內容簡介


兩次愛倫坡獎(Edgar Awards)得主,暢銷作家James Lee Burke的史詩冒險作品Holland Family系列。脾氣暴躁的男主角,能否找回失去的兒子,再次建立完整的家?

「步調準確的動作小說,描繪以拳頭和槍桿上場的尋常男人,但是Burke也創造了三個堅強的女人,這三個重要的角色,每一個都足以和任何一個強悍男子相提並論。毫無疑問地,Burke的手能創造出簡潔的對話與撼動人心的故事。」
--《柯克斯》(Kirkus)

Hackberry Holland,前德州騎警,一個情緒多變的男人,面對19與20世紀之交有著諸多掙扎的同時,也在尋找兒子Ishmael的下落,聽說他正跟隨著潘興(General Pershing)將軍的人馬圍剿墨西哥的軍隊與革命份子。

追尋Ishmael的過程中,Hack被墨西哥一個腐敗的軍隊逮捕、施虐,好不容易逃了出來。回頭報復施虐者時,他不僅發現了一台裝滿武器與彈藥的靈車,還有一些錢財與一只鑲了寶石的金杯。回到德州後,他才打聽到兒子正在法國與德國作戰。沒想到Hack的前妻在醫院綁架了他的兒子,只因原先他發現的武器與金杯屬於一個奧地利軍火商Arnold Beckman,這個奧國人為了拿回金杯,逼迫Hack前妻綁架Ishmael。諸多事情牽扯下,Hack懷疑,這個金杯乃是耶穌在最後晚餐所用的杯子。當Beckman派人偷回金杯時,導致無辜者喪命,這個時候,Hack決定向Beckman宣戰!

在Hack意圖找回兒子的路途中,三個女人伸出援手,一個是Hack的真愛;另一個妓院老鴇,她的祖先是將杜林裹屍布從聖地送回原處的十字軍騎士;第三個是如馬克白夫人一般詭計多端的女子。到底Hack能否成功救回Ishmael,打敗敵人,將聖杯送回應該在的地方?

Bestselling author James Lee Burke’s masterpiece is the story of a father and son separated by war, circumstance, and a race for the Holy Grail—a thrilling entry in the Holland family saga The New York Times Book Review has described as “saturated with the romance of the past while mournfully attuned to the unholy menace of the present.”

After a violent encounter that leaves four Mexican soldiers dead, Texas Ranger Hackberry Holland escapes the country in possession of a stolen artifact believed to be the mythic cup of Christ, earning the ire of a bloodthirsty Austrian arms dealer who places Hack’s son, Ishmael, squarely in the cross hairs of a plot to recapture his prize.

On the journey from revolutionary Mexico in 1918 to the saloons of San Antonio during the Hole in the Wall Gang’s reign, we meet three extraordinary women: the Danish immigrant who is Ishmael’s mother and Hackberry’s one true love; a brothel madam descended from the Crusader knight who brought the Shroud of Turin back from the Holy Land; and a onetime lover of the Sundance Kid, whose wiles rival those of Lady Macbeth. In her own way, each woman will aid Hack in his quest to reconcile with Ishmael, to vanquish their enemies, and to return the Grail to its rightful place.
