James Lee Burke has such a way with words that transports the reader/listener away from their world and into his. It's like magic. I tell people that he could be writing about a garage roof and make it sound like a lace of wonder and beauty. Another terrific story about Dave, Clete and family. Fabulous narration by Will Patton as always.
The prose from Mr Burke transports you to another world. He can pick you up and deposit you hook, line, & sinker into a different reality. He is a masterful story teller, perhaps the best there is.
I love Dave Robichaux and Cleat Parnell. And with the expanded contributions of Ellafair and Gretchen the story really held me attention. All the characters well-developed and right away I cared about them.
And of course will Patton is Dave
Robichaux and a whole cast
Great story and loved that Wyatt Dixon joined the story he is such an interesting character. Will Patton's narration really brings the characters alive.
Ending the series on this book.
His relentless dedication to the downtrodden
Great vocal diversification
Finished with this series
The Bobsy Twins from homicide still rock n roll
The story development on this one was weak. Dave n Clete are on vacation in Montana blah blah blah, halfway through the book they finally get around to getting involved in the plot. This one was unnecessarily slow.
Will is great, good match to Burkes novels
I though for a second that Burke was going to kill Cletus off. Just for a moment though
If I had listened to this novel before all the others I would not have liked it. But after listening to every other novel I feel like Dave n Clete are old friends.
I am really hooked on the Dave Robicheaux novels after listening to just one! James Lee Burke really captures the psychology of the different characters so that you understand what drives them, and he writes a very well paced thriller. You come to know and identify with Dave and Clete - the bobsy twins from homicide! And Will Patton reads the parts so well that the book comes alive! If you have not read any of the Dave Robicheax books, you should give this a try - you will become a fan!
