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.
