I came to James Lee Burke and Dave Robicheaux by accident and now I am hooked!!! I started with Sunset Limited, not knowing there was 9 earlier novels in the series. I am quickly making my way through them and enjoying them immensely. It is not enough to describe them as "mystery" or "thrillers". Burke has introduced me to a whole new world so completely different to the place I live. Dave is a thoroughly believable creation, and might I add one of the sexiest men in fiction! This is my favourite in the series so far, but I still have 6 to read, and then Burke's other novels! I feel like I have not only been entertained by a good story but I have been educated about a place and people that I had no knowledge of.

This is in the mystery series about former New Orleans cop Dave Robicheaux. Burke writes in a vivid poetic style and actor Will Patton adds wonderful flavor to the story. Great for listening to on a long drive or any time. Keeps your attention throughout.

A page turner! Here is an author you will never tire of. Tantalizing descriptions of south Louisiana go along with mystical occurrances and plain old evil culprits that need to be found out and punished one way or the other.
