    The 40-year-old crucifixion of a prominent labor leader named Jack Flynn remains an unsolved atrocity that has never been forgotten in New Iberia, Louisiana. When Flynn's daughter, Megan, returns to the site of her father's murder, it quickly becomes clear that her family's blood-stained past will not stay buried. Megan gives her old friend Dave Robicheaux a tip about a small-time criminal named Cool Breeze Broussard, scarcely suspecting that the seemingly innocuous case will lead Robicheaux and his partner into the midst of a deadly conspiracy.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, in book form, only


    What other book might you compare Sunset Limited to and why?

    Books 15 - 19 have a great narrater, and we really enjoy all of James Lee Burke's . Just sorry to have this group of narrter's reading this story.


    What didn’t you like about Mark Hammer and Will Patton ’s performance?

    Everything, the tone of the voice, no sound difference between characters. Just very bad choice of narrters. Their voice are so bad that you don't want to even listen to story and you have a very hard time following the story because of that.


    Was Sunset Limited worth the listening time?

    No - would like my money back. HA HA


    Any additional comments?

    Love James Lee Burks books, but this was the worst book that I have ever hear on a cd, cassette, or from audible books in the past 10 years. We listened to on average 20 to 30 books every six months. This one almost put us to sleep listening to it and we still have 6 more hours to go before it finished.

    Story
    (102)

    Before Madeleine Albright turned twelve, her life was shaken by the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia—the country where she was born—the Battle of Britain, the near total destruction of European Jewry, the Allied victory in World War II, the rise of communism, and the onset of the Cold War. Albright's experiences, and those of her family, provide a lens through which to view the most tumultuous dozen years in modern history.
