    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.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Creole Belle the most enjoyable?

    Dave and Clete are at their best and the backdrop is interesting and exciting. Will Patton is perfect fot all the Cajun lingo and dialects. I hope Burke keeps writing these Robicheaux novels.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Clete is best in this book. He is so reliable it hurts.


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

    Patton is always good. This one is one of his best.


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

    It made me laugh at times and it caused my chest to swell with pride for our peace makers.
