  • A Morning for Flamingoes: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Story
    (410)

    Dave Robicheaux felt the bone-grinding pain rip through his body as the .45 did its damage. Through the agonizing haze that enveloped him, he heard an almost inhuman laugh - the hideous, victorious cackling of Jimmie Lee Boggs - a sound he would never forget. It had started out as an ordinary prisoner transfer, then turned into a blood bath when the convicted murderer got hold of a gun.

    Ed says: "Burke is an outstanding novelist"
    "PLEASE LEARN TO PRONOUNCE THE WORDS!"
    Overall

    I loved the plot, love Dave, loved the book ... but the mispronunciation of so many South Louisiana words - particularly names of places - was terribly distracting. Except for this single but distracting problem, Hammer, the reader, does a fine job with the local dialect. But Mark - PLEASE call someone who lives in the area, and learn to pronounce unfamiliar terms before you do a day's work in the reading room.
