    As a small boy, Louis witnesses an unspeakable crime that takes the life of a member of his small, southern community. He grows up, moves on, but is forever changed by the cruel and brutal nature of the act. It lights a fire deep within him that burns white and cold. Now, years later, the sins of his life are reaching into his present, bringing with them the buried secrets and half-forgotten acts of his past.

    No one unless they like senseless meaness and no characters with any likable
    qualities


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    James Lee Burke's latest


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Added more depth to the quality of certain characters' voices


    What character would you cut from The Reapers?

    all of them


    Any additional comments?

    It sucked, I only continued it in the hope it would get better.

    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.

    If you could sum up Creole Belle in three words, what would they be?

    intensely satisfying read/listen


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dave Robicheaux is a flawed but admirable character, attempting to wipe out the powerful, corrupt sinister evil that threatens his family and his Louisiana and has an equally flawed but often admirable sidekick, Clete; they are the Bobbsey Twins of NOPD.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of the scenes where Daveand and Clete deal with ghosts from the past and present, doubting their past actions and their sanity.


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

    too many to note


    Any additional comments?

    It is an exciting trip to a place where there is warm air that smells of salt and rain and tropical flowers. James Lee Burke’s writing and Will Patton’s narration do not disappoint!
