    Dave Robicheaux returns in another Bayou adventure, this one more gruesome and gut-wrenching than any that have come before. Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, leaving the streets and buildings flooded and the city awash with opportunists, looters, and vicious criminals. There is no order, no law. Police are shooting randomly at innocent people, prison guards have abandoned their posts, and bodies float through the streets and hang from trees.

    "So real"
    Overall

    I experienced Katrina firsthand, living on the north shore of Louisiana's Lake Maurepas which is just above New Orleans. James Lee Burke's descriptions of what happens both during and after Hurricane Katrina is so real, it was like having a flashback. Detective Dave Robicheaux, with the New Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office, and his sidekick, P.I. Clete Purcell, take us on a scary ride to New Orleans, tracking criminals and solving mysteries, during a time of darkness and chaos. We experience the drama of the fear and the courage it took to survive all of it. Burke also makes us aware that it took the efforts of many law enforcement agencies, medical personnel, and emergency power and clean-up crews to restore order to south Louisiana.

    Listen to mystery stories by today's top writers and the masters who inspired them. The idea for this collection came to Mystery Writers of America Grandmaster Lawrence Block when he was asked, "What is your favorite mystery story?" Block compiled this unique collection by posing the same question to some of today's favorite writers of the genre, including Stephen King, Tony Hillerman, and John Lutz.

    Overall

    Another great Dave Robicheaux novel by James Lee Burke, and this one really had me guessing until the end. Great mystery! Burke's descriptions of both the people and the land of Louisiana are beautifully expressed. And, Will Patton does an absolutely great job on the accents of the characters. You'll think you're on Bayou Teche, for real.

    Lily Owens has shaped her entire life around one devastating memory - the day her mother was killed. When she and her "stand-in-mother," a fierce-hearted black woman named Rosaleen, are taken in by an eccentric trio of black beekeeping sisters, Lily enters a secret world of bees and honey, and of the Black Madonna who presides over this household of strong, wise women.

    "Unusual and haunting tale"
    Overall

    An unusual and haunting tale. I enjoyed it *very* much. I live in the deep South, and there's nothing worse than a fake southern accent. The narrator of this book is excellent.
