    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.

    Richard Delman says: "Dave Robicheaux lives!"
    "Burke with Patton are hard to beat! Excellent."

  • Doctor Sleep: A Novel

    (6123)

    Stephen King returns to the characters and territory of one of his most popular novels ever, The Shining, in this instantly riveting novel about the now middle-aged Dan Torrance (the boy protagonist of The Shining) and the very special 12-year-old girl he must save from a tribe of murderous paranormals. This is an epic war between good and evil, a gory, glorious story that will thrill the millions of hyper-devoted fans of The Shining and wildly satisfy anyone new to the territory of this icon in the King canon.

    D says: "The sequel to the book; not the movie"
    "King and Patton -- a masterpiece of horror,fantasy"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Doctor Sleep to be better than the print version?

    Did not read printed addition


    What other book might you compare Doctor Sleep to and why?

    The Shining, of course.


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

    He has done great work for James Lee Burke, who with King is one of my top favorites.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both!


    Any additional comments?

    I hope both these artists continue to produce!
