    Story

    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.

    "Best Burke I've read and I've read many"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I couldn't put this book down


    What other book might you compare Creole Belle to and why?

    Tin Roof Blow Down


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

    His narration makes the reader feel as if they've been transported to the deep South and surrounded by people they'd never want to meet.


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

    When the main character is in the hospital hallucinating....it's as tough for the reader to figure out what is real versus what is a dream as it is for the character.

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.
