Although I'm not a big mystery fan, this story was so well crafted, it was easy to feel you were on the bayou scene and wondering (along with the characters) what did and would happen. Good entertainment value.

A mystery set in the heart of Cajun country. Several of my guy friends kept telling me that I would like James Lee Burke's books, and I thought, "Yeah, right!"), but was hooked on the first one, and I am usually a chick-lit kind of gal. I couldn't put this one down!
