I sometimes wonder why I enjoy James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux series? I mean, Dave seems to be a pretty decent guy, and he has a nice family. However, it seems that virtually everyone that Dave knows is through his law enforcement profession, and excepting the minority who hold a badge, they come off as slimy untrustworthy lowlifes that I would not want to spend any personal time getting to know.

Then, after completing the next one in the series, I remember why I do it because Burke is one h-ll of a storyteller.

Burning Angel has a few intertwining mysteries running through it or, are they merely separate aspects of the same conspiracy? (No spoilers, I leave this to the reader to determine for his or herself.) As mentioned, I don't like most of the supporting characters. I don't like the way our lead character acts when he's around these other characters, either. BUT when I get to the end, I think wow that was a pretty decent story.

RATING: 4.5 stars, rounded down to 4 stars.
