The story, the recording, the power of historical fiction at its very best ... don't miss this one!
It's at the top of the list ... as are ALL of the Dave Robicheaux books recorded by Will Patton.
Dave. And Clete's right behind ... and sometimes a little ahead. The characters are so real, and Burke's philosophy rings so true, and the atmosphere he creates ... I suppose that if you've never lived in South Louisiana, you might not believe it. But Burke's voice tells it like it is.
PLEASE request that Will Patton re-record the Dave Robicheaux books 1-13. The other narrators just didn't get it; words were mispronounced and though an attempt at the regional dialect was made, it wasn't achieved. Patton's narration is so superior that I'd purchase them again.
... in my head. The characters are exceptionally well developed and the plot zips its listener from one mysterious (or frightening) situation to another without losing focus. I finished this book about a month ago and am still thinking about some of its underlying themes. I LOVED it! I had not previously read Justin Cronin, but I certainly will now!
