I am a huge James Lee Burke fan-the writing is so mesmerizing you don't want to miss a word. The descriptions of people, places, smells and tastes-so compelling. The character studies, whether it's a bit player or Dave's best friend, Clete (a personal favorite) are poignant and heartbreaking and you can feel their pain. Dave Robicheaux is a glutton for punishment, but so noble-great "listen"-and Will Patton (narrator) is superb.
I thought this was another great book by James Lee Burke and , because I so enjoyed the person reading it, I know that I would not have enjoyed it as much if I had read it. Yet again, through Burke's writings, the reader gets an insight into the history of the south, as well as the interactions of people in the south today.
Burke has done better. The bad guy is over the top and so repulsive and real, by the time he humiliates Dave, you just don't want to keep reading. You wish Dave well, but you'll catch him next time.
