    The image of the dead girl's body lingered in detective Dave Robicheaux's mind as he drove home. After seeing the young victim's corpse, the last thing he needed to come across was a drunk driver. But when he saw the Cadillac fishtail across the road, Robicheaux knew the driver was in trouble. What Dave didn't realize, was that by pulling the car over, he was opening his murder case wider than he could imagine. The driver, Elrod Sykes, in New Iberia to star in a movie, leads Dave to the remains of a black man that had washed up in the Atchafalaya swamp.

    Story
    Would you listen to In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead again? Why?

    No, I wouldn't listen again. Not because it was a bad story/listen, but only because I don't reread/re-listen to fiction of this kind.


    Would you be willing to try another book from James Lee Burke? Why or why not?

    Big fan of Burke, his descriptions are way above the bar compared to most contemporary mystery/detective writers. Robicheaux is one to come back for.


    What does Mark Hammer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mark Hammer was amazing. This is the first of Burke's books I have listened to and I couldn't have picked a better voice for it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not the best of the Robicheaux series so far, however having only got this far, I'm not qualified to say it is the worst either, however it is, in my humble opinion, the worst of the first 6.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are into reading series from beginning to end as I am, this may be the one to skip, [SPOILER ALERT], (kind of), nothing that significant happens in Robicheaux's life that I could see becoming a reoccurring plot point or character identifier. The only thing I could see returning would be a couple of the antagonist, maybe...
