I am displeased that I was unable to get these in order, i.e., 1,2,3,4,5,6,7..... I was a good book. Not excellent but worth reading if you like this series

I'm slowly but surely working my way through this series - I just can't stand it when I get to the last page - I just want it to continue. Burke has a way of taking a lot of characters and a lot of different things going on and tying them altogether - people in the past just jump right into the present from problems they caused long ago. Burke's writing is a blend of prose with the violent nature of the crime - I love the characters in this series and I love Burke's writing style....I'll read them all.

I'm not sure what the other reviewers are thinking when they knock 'Sunset Limited' as Burke in lesser form. This book is a gem, much in the style of Burke's 'A Stained White Radiance.' The evocations of place are fine as always, but what is especially strong in 'Sunset Limited' is the infusion of past memories into present circumstances, another strength of the Robicheaux series. The Biblical imagery is a bonus, and Burke carries it through seamlessly, right down to Catholic allusions to St. Veronica's veil. There is a vein in Burke's novels that echoes Flannery O'Connor--and that vein is evident here. 'Sunset Limited' is one of Burke's best-written novels, not a lower member of the totem poll as some of the other reviews suggest.
