I read this book in one sitting. If you like Dave Robicheaux you will love Iry Paret. Originally shopped around 18 years ago and rejected 111 times, this book was finally published and you have to ask yourself "What were the people who rejected it thinking and where are they working now?" Now re-released (2006)it has all the grittiness of Robicheaux but in James Lee Burke's other hometown state of Montana. This book is not to be missed if you are a Burke fan.
