Swan Peak Author:James Lee Burke From Bookmarks Magazine — Although Dave Robicheaux has (temporarily) left his beloved New Orleans, fans will not be disappointed in this fast-moving, taut, and riveting thriller. Critics noted James Lee Burke?s somewhat lighter tone and brighter mood since his last novel, The Tin Roof Blowdown (2006), a furious reaction to the aftermath of Hurric... more »ane Katrina, though the Miami Herald felt that Swan Peak didn?t measure up to the former novel?s ferocity and immediacy. Burke?s lyrical language and eye for detail are well suited to the rugged physical beauty of Montana, and his characters spring to life as he deftly juggles several different plotlines. Despite a glut of violence and some potentially confusing narrative shifts, Robicheaux?s followers are in for a ?deeply terrifying ride? (Oregonian).
