    Return to James Lee Burke's "timeless, parallel universe" with detective Dave Robicheaux, as he investigates the murders of two women, tries to prove one man's innocence, and faces an enemy unlike any he has ever known. Gothic, dense, brutal, touching, and always compelling, Jolie Blon's Bounce is classic storytelling from a writer who has been dubbed "the Faulkner of crime fiction."

    Overall

    I have read other customer reviews in this section and couldn't disagree more with those who criticize Mark Hammer's reading of this wonderful book. JLB says this is his favourite in the Robicheaux series and having heard this book twice (the second time was on a long car trip with my wife) I think Mark Hammer did a fabulous job. The pacing is wonderful, the characters are clearly and consistently presented and the atmosphere is seductivelty and dramatically evoked. My wife and I agree... 5 stars for the book and the reading.

    Further, I just re-read Neon Rain and loved revisting this fine book. I would love to hear Mark Hammer read this or any other of the DR series. JLB's new Robicheaux book, the soon to be released Last Car to Elysian Fields is eagerly aniticipated in our house as I'm sure it is in other Audible listener's homes. Here's hoping Mark Hammer is hired to read it as well.

    Get it. You'll love it!
