If you've read Jolie Blon's Bounce, you can skip this one, since it's basically the same plot with different geography.
Very enjoyable book, James Lee Burke writes a good story. The story builds and keeps your interest, however, the ending is a little weak.
James Lee Burke is my favorite author. I have read all of his Robicheaux books and this was my first Billy Bob. It was wonderful just as I expected.
Although it's annoying when the hero keeps seeing and conversing with his long-dead partner and reading about his great-grandfather's exploits in pre-statehood Texas, the main tale is compelling with believeable characters and menacing bad guys. I had some trouble during my commute keeping all the many characters straight at first, but eventually got the hang of who was who. I didn't figure this one out which says a lot. Give it a shot!
Burke's book are usually great, but the reader made me nuts. Fake southern accent, I just couldn't stand it.
