    Perfect imagery paints the scene in the second entry of James Le

    Perfect imagery paints the scene in the second entry of James Lee Burke’s ongoing Dave Robicheaux mystery series. Often as bad as he is good, Dave Robicheaux proves to be an intriguing character on many levels. He has his demons, and he fights them nearly every day of his life. The supporting characters are as intriguing as the lead, and each one proves far from perfect. And the worst ones help determine a new definition of evil.

    Were it not for his strong sense of character and command of the written word, this novel might have failed. But it doesn’t by any stretch of the imagination. It succeeds over and over again. If you like strong characters and a strong sense of place, then I highly recommend this gorgeous read into the depths of humanity.

    This Reader is Now Hooked On Robicheaux

    I'm new to the Robicheaux series and plan to read them in order. This is #2 and it was another great read. I gave the first book 5 stars and this one 4, but this probably should be scored 4.5 stars. Burke is a damn fine writer and his main character is just about the perfect hero - he's human, clearly imperfect, is deep and absolutely likeable. You root for Robicheaux in all aspects of his life, his relationships and his investigations. Great story here, and a continuation of character development - Robicheaux as well as others.

    As always Fantastic

    James Lee Burke is an outstanding author I love all of his work. He does an excellent job of telling a tale of suspense and danger. He has a way of keeping the action going and of describing the area that makes you think you are there.

    Burke is truely one of the worlds great writers

    The Louisiana atmosphere and the inner demons of a recovering alcoholic, oozes from every page and Burke makes it look sooooo effortless that it truely makes one jealous of his writing ability. I will read every book he writes.

    Burke makes writing look so easy!!!

    Whether it's describing the tranquility of the Louisiana bayou or detailing the inner battles of a recovering alcoholic, Burke's writing is simply extraordinary!!!

    Alcoholics in Time Warps

    Some very fine descriptive writing. Like many recovering alcoholics, sometimes uncomfortably self-absorbed. A little disturbing that characters of color are quaint types, created to 'color' the world of whites. On the other hand, maybe it's just telling it as it is.

    Highly checked - you must recommend it!!

    This is a book by James Lee Burke. It has a lot of pages and they are numbered consecutively for the reader's convenience. It is good to read and also makes a wonderful doorstop and/or paperweight. At those times you don't feel like reading it, it can be used as a coaster or to swat irritating mosquitos. Honestly, I liked it about as much as other books I have read. Maybe others will, too. Maybe not. Who knows?
