New Iberia Blues is another great southern police procedural from James Lee Burke. The crucifixion death of a woman leads Detective Dave Robicheaux to a Hollywood director in town to make a movie. What follows is a slam-bam thriller. While New Iberia Blues is not the best book in the series, the author is such a skilled writer that it is still better than many books out there. This is book 22 but surprisingly can be read as a standalone though I recommend reading a least a couple of the older books to get some background on Dave. This book rates 4 stars! Thanks to Simon & Schuster for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

There is no better wordsmith than Mr Burke. His descriptive writing makes me feel like I'm right there with him in the story. He is my all-time favorite writer.

The New Iberia Blues by James Lee Burke shines with beautiful prose. This is a tale about a search for a possible serial killer in the bayous of Louisiana. Dave Robicheaux is the detective leading the investigation of people from the backwoods, Hollywood types, the mafia etc. This novel did not do it for me. I have quit after 200 pages, which is something I have a lot of trouble doing. The author has written many books about Detective Dave Robicheaux and this was only my second. I found that there were too many characters, which slowed down the action considerably. This is only my opinion. James Lee Burke is a much praised and popular author. Thank you to Simon & Schuster and NetGalley for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest opinion.

private-investigators, thriller, suspense, mystery, crime-fiction The present is the product of the past. Nowhere is this more clearly apparent than in the stories centered on Dave Robicheaux in the bayou. If you've never read any of these you should prepare yourself for the dark side of life and the calling to investigate and work for justice whether as law enforcement or private. That being said, I loved this one at least as much as any of the others and hope that he continues to write more. Can't call this an unbiased endorsement as I confess to being a Dave Robicheaux addict. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Simon and Schuster Publishing via NetGalley. Thank you!
