    Creole Belle begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, The Glass Rainbow, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song “Creole Belle” on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Creole Belle to be better than the print version?

    Yes! Thanks to Will Patton. He makes the story live.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. Love the characters. Like seeing old friends.


    Have you listened to any of Will Patton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is the only one that should ever be allowed to preform this series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Burke can't write this series as fast as I would listen to them.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Keeper of Lost Causes in three words, what would they be?

    Way to real


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story line is just enough different to seperate it from other books of the same nature


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

    The book would be just as good of a read. Davies does help with the forgien names. The plot can be confusing to follow with out a consistant voice for each charater.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The reality of what would be apt to happen after the ending.


    Any additional comments?

    A good book but if you are looking for a "feel good" ending instead of reality one might struggle with this story.

    Will Trent is a brilliant agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Newly in love, he is beginning to put a difficult past behind him. Then a local college student goes missing, and he is inexplicably kept off the case by his supervisor and mentor, deputy director Amanda Wagner. Will cannot fathom Amanda's motivation, until the two of them literally collide in an abandoned orphanage they have both been drawn to for different reasons. Decades before - when Will's father was imprisoned for murder - this was his home....

    Melinda says: "Heart Pounding, Gripping Thriller"

    Very difficult to follow the story. Disjointed

    I would be hesitant without more information about anything new.


    What aspect of Kathleen Early’s performance would you have changed?

    Everyone sounded the same.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Bordom and confusion.

    Story
    (144)

    Her name is Elise Freeman, and her chilling cry for help to whoever may be listening comes too late to save her. On a DVD found near her lifeless body, the emotionally and physically battered woman chronicles a year-and-a-half-long ordeal of monstrous abuse at the hands of three sadistic tormentors. But even more shocking than the lurid details is the revelation that the offenders, like their victim, are teachers at one of L.A.s most prestigious prep schools.

    Jonna says: "Really disappointed"
    "Confusing"
    Overall

    This may be a book better read then listened to. Very hard to follow.
