      Always a joy to read the latest by the incomparable literary crime fiction writer, James Lee Burke, painting a vivid and vibrant contemporary picture of the US, providing a political and social commentary on the cruelty, woes and horror inflicted on the land and its people by its political classes, devoid of any principles This may be the 22nd in the series, but he has not lost his lyricism and sureness of touch in penning this twisted and complex tale of injustice, ritual murders, corruption, A [...]

      The Louisiana bayou in all its musty, shaded glory is almost another character in Burke s Robicheaux series, a crime fiction series that is deeply character driven, dark, gloomy, haunted Dreams, fantasies, and twisted pasts merge with current cruel truths here Everyone in this whether a midget gunman, Hollywood royalty, or a picture show detective has a checkered mysterious past Everyone here is haunted by the ghosts of their past And, Robicheaux is like a drowning man struggling to stay abo The [...]
