James Lee Burke is one of my favorite authors. His Dave Robichaux is a man with an edgy past which adds to the interest. Burke makes the bayou country of Louisiana so vivid with his descriptions you almost feel like you are in a pirogue floating under the mossy trees with him. Wonderful twists and turns in his storyline, too.

One of the Dave Robichaux mysteries and one of the best of them. If William Faulker had been a mystery writer, he'd have been James Lee Burke!
