Dave is trying to put his life back together and has started a small fishing rental business in the bayou. He’s gotten married. When he and wife Annie witness a small plane crash in which four illegal aliens are killed and only a young girl survives, Robicheaux is brought down a trail that suggests that feds are in league with a ring of Central American dope-runners. Heaven’s Prisoners was adapted to film in 1996 and starred Alec Baldwin, Kelly Lynch, Mary Stuart Masterson and Teri Hatcher.
