A new printing of a 1976 novel by James Lee Burke, starring the early verson of Dave Robicheauz. It is moving, turbulent, and a wonderful read!

This is a novel that was written before he started on his popular series (Robicheaux)and has been reissued. It's a good read and, as always, he conjours up terric, believable characters and magnificent country atmosphere. In this case it's Montana and ex-cons. Great read.

Not the usual James Lee Burke novel, however it is a good look at the lives of those who have had hardships, and come out of it with a positive.

Burke turns from his highly regarded Dave Robicheaux series to tell the story of a songwriter/ex-con who leaves Louisiana to work out his parole term on the ranch owned by the father of a former cellmate. But the family's personal and local political problems land him right back in a world of violence, betrayal, and small-town feuds. Burke can write; the Orlando Sentinel called this a "bravura novel."

One of my all time favorite mystery writers, Burke never fails and he didn't this time, either.

Originally written in 1986 and reissued in 2006 this "premium" format. The books has been called "groundbreaking," beautifully crafted, and a precursor to the Dave Robicheaux novels.

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.

The back cover says "BULGING WITH VIRILE PROSE...", but my copy has a remarkably flat and flaccid back cover. Oh, well, I guess I'll have to read it to find out.
