    Great writing

    I started reading the Dave Robicheaux series from the beginning at the suggestion of a friend and I'm now up to this one.....I love Rocicheaux's character and with each book, he becomes more profound - he's a cop that may tend to go over the line, but in his heart, you know he's about doing the right thing. And its just not his character...Burke's writing style is just absolute prose, be it the description of the scenery around the characters and he always speaks of whats in Robicheaux's heart. This was, as usual, an outstanding drama. Burke drives home the gritty feeling you get when you read about the 'dark side' of human nature and what happens in that world. I'm ready to move on into reading the rest of the series.

    By far the best in the Dave Robicheaux series

    If you read no other book by James Lee Burke, make sure you read this one. I love the Dave Robicheaux novels, every one of them is a treat, but this was by far his greatest work! Beautiful and poetic.

    A reviewer

    I read this the first time from a ratty worn paperback but this book really stuck with me. Very good crime plus a touch of the spooky. Loved it and am reading it again.

    Dead Queen~ Prologue

    The moonlight shined in through the window, lighting the nearly black room just enough so you could make out the shapes of the things crowded in the tiny room.<br>Amongst the many items,there stood the figure of a boy, fingering a sword. "Bring her." He said in an almost malicious voice. The guards threw in a girl, who got to her feet and stood with her chin high.<br>"Em." He purred. Her hands were tied in the back, and he saw her look around the room, calculating odds and what could be a weapon. "You try so hard, but it's pointless." He sighs. Em rolled forward and slammed her head into his, then crashed through the window and ran. "FIND HER!" The boy roared.<p>{okay. I will accept character applications, and I am so happy you are reading this. It was a crazy idea that popped into my head, so I hope you like it. Also, Chapter One will be at result 3. Adios. ~ Dead Queen &#9813}

    Another good James Lee Burke story.

    I really liked the side element he included in the story, it added to the enjoyment of the book. But this one was a little different from his other books because of that interesting element.

    Great Burke Novel

    Been gradually reading the entire series in order and this one does not disappoint...AGAIN. Burke is just a great writer and Robicheaux is someone we ALL will pull for continuously. Imperfect yet always fighting for what is just, this character has real depth. In fact, all of Burke's characters are real and this lends itself to a much higher level of believability throughout his tales. Can't wait to keep reading!!
