    After the death of his mother, Albert "Shoe" Horn is left to provide for his alcoholic father and look after his younger brother Bobby - a teenager with the mind of a child. After Shoe inadvertently kills a man in a fight, he must try to balance the need to protect his brother and his desire to protect himself. Shoe's story unfolds against the 1922 union strikes in England, as he must choose between living his father's life, with his brother, or a new life in America, alone.

    Dave Robicheaux has spent his life confronting the age-old adage that the sins of the father pass on to the son. But what was his mother's legacy? Dead to him since his youth, Mae Guillory has been shuttered away in the deep recesses of Robicheaux's mind. While helping out an old friend, Dave is stunned when a pimp looks at him sideways and asks if he is the son of Mae Guillory, the whore a bunch of cops murdered 30 years ago. Her body was dumped in the bayou bordering Purple Cane Road, and the cops who left her there are still on the job.

    What disappointed you about Purple Cane Road?

    I'm sure, given the high caliber of all the others in the Dave Robicheaux Series, I would have loved this story. However... HOWEVER, I feel I have been robbed in that the narator just plain sucks. Couldn't stomach him for even five minutes. Sorry Mr. Burke...


    Has Purple Cane Road turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nick Sullivan?

    Mark Hammer or Will Patton


    What character would you cut from Purple Cane Road?

    no opinion
