    outstanding book

    This is one of the BEST James Lee Burke books out there with Dave Robicheaux and for first-time readers of James Lee Burke, a great starting point (even though I think Heaven's Prisoners may have been one of the first in the Robicheaux books).

    Another Top Robicheaux Tale

    I've read the first five of the Dave Robicheaux series in order and have not yet been disappointed at all. Burke has quickly become one of my favorites authors; too bad it took me so long to start reading his work. Dave Robicheaux is simply a good, tough guy. He's fair, flawed yet balanced, determined, strong and justice-minded. This book has several interweaving stories within one overall deep plot. Robicheaux faces off against organized crime, white supremacists, and a family with ties to both and several family secrets. All the while he is a great dad and husband, and true friend to Clete and Batiste. I'm stunned more of the Robicheaux novels haven't made their way to television movies or the big screen - the main character and the story-telling are that good and that engrossing.
