    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    "Another brilliant Burke novel"
    Overall

    I downloaded this as soon as it was available, and didn't listen to anything else until I finished it. Burke is a master at his craft and Patton is quickly becoming my favorite narrator.

    The way these two bring the post Katrina Big Sleazy to life is amazing.

    In the midst of the Go-Go '90s, the culture of greed infused the MIT campus. A small blackjack club sprang up, dedicated to counting cards and beating the house at major casinos around the country. The Club grew slowly at first, but by the late 1990s, the right people had come up with the right system to take some of the world's most sophisticated casinos for all they were worth.

    "Good Story / Bad Narrator"
    Overall

    Let me start by saying that I have never written a negative review before. I found the story to be really interesting and entertaining. However; after five hours I'm giving up on the narrator. His voice isn't even that bad but the equipment used or maybe poor editing has resulted in every gulp/swallow being heard. After five hours it's like fingernails on a chalkboard.
