With a hero named Billy Bob, how can you not love it? Classic James Lee Burke.
A story of conspiracy, revenge, and psychopaths whom Buke describes as ones never at home in the real world. Featuring former Texas Ranger Billy Bob Holland. A weel written, colorful book.
I have enjoyed James Lee Burke and his Iberia Parish books but this one was impossible to get a handle on.
A very exciting adventure novel. Very fast moving and entertaining
billy bob family is in danger-full of revenge and psychopaths
A former Texas Ranger, and now a lawyer, has come to Montana at the request of a friend in trouble. Not part of the bargain, a former prisoner is after the lawyer for both his imprisonment and the death of his sister.
Abridged. Approx. 6 hours. 4 cassettes.
Always exciting. The combination of Will Patton's ol'boy narration and the endearing friendships drawn by James Lee Burke guarantee that my listening time will be enjoyable.
James Lee Burke is a top author, but after 20 or 30 novels, his books are starting to sound a lot alike - chilling and sociopathic villains, driven and haunted protagonists, lots of people putting each other down verbally and physically. When I say there was maybe a little more violence than necessary to carry the story, consider that I spent 21 years in the military and am not easily put off by "bllod and guts". Enteretaining and still has a way with words, bur I found myself flipping to the end to check the page count several times. I usually do that when I've had about enough and am wondering how much there is left to finish.
A typical book by Burke. I enjoyed it and the ending.
One of my favorite authors! A journey to Big Sky country to help a friend in trouble, former Texas Ranger and now a Texas-based lawyer, Billy Bob Holland is tormented by past mistakes and the drive to make all things all right. A great "read"!
Billy Bob Holland has come to Montana's Bitterroot Valley to help an old friend in need. Wyatt Dixon, a prison parolee, believes the former Texas Ranger caused his imprisonment and his sister's death an dis out for revenge. Meanwhile, Billy Bob, tormented by mistakes in his past, is intent on making things right. Great suspense.
Not a bad story, I listened to it straight through on a long drive, and thought if I hear him describe the color of the sky one more time I might drive into a bridge abutment. I was able to keep it together
I hate to turn this one loose!
