I have read all of the books in this series and found all to be very satisfying. There is a sadness to this book in that Dave has lost his wife, his house and maybe his job. His adopted daughter is away at college. Thankfully, some colorful characters from past novels return, and the plot takes a back seat to the finely drawn characters and very real interaction and dialogue. One hopes that an older, less settled Robicheaux will want to return for another installment.

Best savored slowly. A convoluted plot that comes together well, in the end. A good read.

My first "James Lee Burke" book on my new NOOK. What great way to start. I've read most of Burke's books and enjoyed them all but this rated very high in my opinion. Love Burke's writings. FlagAmerica

...explores the true dark side of human nature. I have friends that can't read his books because of the violence. The violence is not what "attracts" me to his books - but his understanding of human nature's darkside, no matter how good the person. Even with the violent nature of the plots and some of the characters, Burke writes with prose. Dave Robicheaux has much on his emotional plate whose past constantly haunts him. While you can't approve of the way he handles things, in his heart, he is remorseful after his actions and cares so much for righting the wrongs of the world...I can't help but like Robicheaux's character, even if he is his own worst enemy at times.

Nice to have it on e-books for Nook HD...it was one of the few I had not read of james lee burkes series about SW Louisiana...graphic, but caring, and bourkes use of imagery as well as dialects sets him apaprt as a descriptive writer.

James Lee Burke's Louisiana accuracy, dialect, and references are wonderfully integrated into the excellent crime dramas he weaves.

The last road to...was especially poignant. I enjoyed the political comments and felt that I had found a friend. I feel a constant sense of outrage too. And I am also a friend of Bill's; as Dave is. (26 years) Thanks, I look forward to the next one which I now have and will start soon. I don't usually write to writers, ah well. Donna

As much as I prefer unabridged audiobooks, I ended up switching to the abridged version. I found Mark Hammer's reading difficult to understand much of the time. He mumbles, which distracts from the story. I much prefer Will Patton's delivery and wish he was the reader for the unabridged books.

I had never read from this author. I felt that there was extra description where it wasn't need, and not enought in other places. The book never really grabbed me. It did get a little better towards the end, but not enough that I considered it worth the time.

This is the first and last James Lee Burke book for me. No plot, no suspense, no point.
