I am an avid mystery reader/lister and always on the lookout for a new series to grab me. James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux novels did just that. I started with Swan Peak and am now on my third book in the series (Tin Roof Blowdown and Crusader's Crossing). I especially like Will Patton as the narrator. Although the plots are complex, I can follow them as they are exciting and clever. The novels are also humorous at times (Dave's friend Clete) yet beautifully written, the characters intriguing. I highly recommend trying a Burke novel if you like mysteries. If you're a Michael Connelly fan, then Burke might be for you.
