    Louisiana Justice

    Three crime novels are collected in this book chronicling the gritty life of Detective Rene Shade. His portion of hell on earth is the Parish of St. Bruno, Louisiana. A place where the wildlife on the streets is ever bit as dangerous as that in the bayou. Shade is part French and part Irish with the temperament of a Louisiana gator. He got his education on the streets and in the ring. The fact that he turned out working for the law instead of against it is still a subject of talk in many corners of the parish. Shade has more twists and moods than the Mississippi winding through the bayous. One minute he is tender and reflective, the next he is smashing someones face in with his fists. The author, Daniel Woodrell is a master of the turn of a phrase. He can paint a picture with words that makes you feel the bayou swamp water seep through your cloths and into your shorts. You can feel the pressure of the heavy rays of the sun beating down on you, squeezing the sweat from your pores, like juice through a cheesecloth. If you want a thrill ride through the bayou, latch on to Detective Rene Shade as he fights crime Louisiana style. This book provided for review by the good folks at Library Thing and Mulholland Books

    Good summer read

    Lots of local color and laid-back style. I enjoyed it. Interestingly enough, I bought this book because President Obama did. Don't that beat all.

    What a mess

    I had high hopes for these novels after reading Winter's Bone but the narrative just fell apart. Skip these and spend your time instead reading worthwhile fiction.

    Take it or leave it

    No where close to the depth of Winter's Bone.

    It was good, but did not live up to my expectations

    I enjoyed this collection, however, I found myself struggling to finish it. The stories did get better as the collection evolved, with the third story being the best with the most well fleshed out characters. obviously, we see the writer develop through the stories and even though they are brief with very abrupt endings I wish there was just a bit more falling action to each story rather than ending almost immediately following the climax.
