This book had me from page one. Preacher is one of fiction's most memorable bad guys. I could not put this book down!

Burke scores again with this riveting, beautifully penned tale. Flawed good guys against evil bad guys with redeeming qualities set in a background only a masterful author could make beautiful, a compelling plot and equally compelling sub-plots, put Rain Gods on my Must Read list. The audio version was just the thing for my long road trip, especially with the narrator, Will Patton, providing the perfect voice for this excellent thriller.

James Lee Burke writes novels with descriptions of incomparable beauty juxtaposed with poverty, hate, envy and lonliness. His characters are well developed and each is uniquely flawed. The plot is tight and believable with excellent dialog and some unexpected twists. If you've read Burke before you know what a treat you're in for. If you've never read Burke this is an excellent book to get started on and you've many, many more to enjoy. Excellent work by one of the pre-eminent writers of noir fiction.

This is one of the best books that I have read this year. James Lee Burke brings back his character Hackberry Holland (who we haven't seen in too long - one of the drawbacks of the author having two great characters to work with - Dave Robicheaux and Billy Bob Holland. Hackberry is a sheriff who finds the corpses of nine Asian women buried in the field behind the church, shot by a World War Two machine gun. It turns out that the dead women were prostitutes and drug mules in an organized-crime ring run by a nasty criminal. The killer is a famous hitman called Preacher (one of Burke's most evil bad guys for a long time). I strongly recommend fans of James Lee Burke, crime fiction, and simply people who like good books to buy this novel. You won't be disappointed. Peter

This writer seems to know his readers are intelligent and writes accordingly. Good plot, keeping up with this world we are in now. Had to read to the end...this is a page turner.

Being from west Texas, it was nice to read his very colorful descriptions of the landscape and weather in the desert. His characters were great !! Highly recommend. I jumped into this book not knowing it is the most current book in a series. Was still great, even though I didn't know much about the main character. I am going to start at the beginning.
