James Lee Burke is, for my money, the best mystery author in print. His writing style is flawless. He describes Louisiana like no one else can. His characters are very human and flawed, and the plots develop with surprising twists and turns. His main character, Dave Robicheaux is a complicated policeman with a complicated life. The series can be read in any order, but they should be read by anyone who can appreciate a really good book by a really great writer. - Carol Maske

James Lee Burke at the top of his form, says Tony Hillerman--and I agree.

There are few writers that can completely mesmerize the reader with prose like Burke. His novels are a tactile treat and his treatment of character a lesson in perfection. If you have never read him, prepare yourself to be swept away...

I had such high hopes for this book and the synopsis depicts it to be great, of course, but I really hated it. The story was disjointed, left out important parts that would explain what was going on and how the characters got to that point, and left me questioning WTF? This particular version is abridged, so I can't honestly say how the whole story compares to what I listened to. In addition, the narrator, James Lee Burke, tried too hard to come up with a believable "New Orleans" accent and failed miserably. Very frustrating and a waste of time.

It's out there, under the salt of the Gulf of Mexico, off the Louisiana coast-a buried Nazi submarine. Detective Dave Robicheaux of the New Iberia Sheriff's office has know of its existence since childhood, when he was terrified by nightmares of the evil Nazi sailors just offshore. Then, as a teenager, he stumbled upon the sunken sub while scuba diving - but for years he kept the secret of its watery grave.
