Another great Dave Robicheaux romp...only this time Dave, Alafair, Clete and an assorted group spend most of the book in Montana's tribal lands. As usual Dave's got to battle his enemies, his friends and himself. You'll love it.
One of my favortie mystery authors. If you love the deep south, most of his books will never fail to please those who also love mysteries. He knows how to give you just the right amount of description of the area as well as plenty of action.
I've read everything James Lee Burke has ever written, and now I'm reading books written by his real-life daughter, Alafair (who is a character in this, as in so many of his books - you can almost watch her grow up if you read his books in chronological order). He sets most of his stories in South Louisiana, and no one gets it right like JLB. The descriptions of the Louisiana landscape, with its dreamy, slow-moving bayous and dreamy, slow-moving way of life, the New Orleans he loves, the dialogue that is right on, even the history and culture of the Acadian, or 'Cajun' people...he gets it all right, and you can tell he loves the place he lives and writes about. (Can you tell I'm a Louisiana lady?) :-)
Since the story is well-described, I won't attempt another description. But I will say that I believe anyone who enjoys a good mystery with in-depth characterizations and plenty of twists and turns, should truly enjoy the incomparable James Lee Burke.
One of the early Dave Robicheaux books. They are all great. I love them. James Lee Burke's writing is diffrent from anyone else I have read - he has a beautiful way with words.
Will Patton has a reader makes any book good. This book just happend to be good on its own. Dave Robichaux is back--thrust into the violent world of the Mafia. 2 cassettes
