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.

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.

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.

I think this is the second Dave Robicheaux novel I have read by Burke. I know I read DIXIE CITY JAM several years ago and really enjoyed it. Not sure why it took me so long to read another in the series. Anyway, STAINED WHITE RADIANCE was highly readable and a great hard-core crime novel. In this one, Robicheaux is working to protect an old friend, Weldon Sonnier, who had been shot at and later whose house had been ransacked resulting in the death of a police officer. This leads Dave to a mob boss named Joey Gouza who it looks like sent his gang of thugs to even some kind of score with Sonnier. Also involved is Sonnier's brother-in-law, a former Klansman who is running for political office and possibly Sonnier's father who was presumed to be long dead. As Dave works his way through the mire, he is always most concerned about his family and his friend, Batist, who works in his bait shop. Burke really is a master story-teller and his descriptions of the Louisiana bayou country makes the reader feel as if they are there. High recommendation for this one and I definitely need to read more in this series!
