I'm not an animal person. If you are, this is a must-listen book. Even for us non-animal people, it's a great read.
I liked the story. I liked the characters. A little bit pulp fiction (not the movie), a little bit philosophical, a little bit Independence Day.
Detective Palace is just an ordinary guy in extraordinary times, determined to do his job when the whole world is coming apart.
I'm waiting for the next book. Be a shame if it doesn't materialize.
James Lee Burke is mesmerizing. Always. Will Patton uses his voice to evoke the South in all it's lazy, steamy, passionate beauty.
Not my favorite book in the series. I'm not a great fan of Clete, and this one is mostly about him. But anything--anything!--written by Mr. Burke and read by Mr. Patton is worth every minute and every penny.
