Cajun police detective Dave Robicheaux knows the Sonnier family of New Iberia -- their connections to the CIA, the mob, and to a former Klansman now running for state office. And he knows their past - as dark and murky as a night on the Louisiana bayou.
An assassination attempt and the death of a cop draw Robicheaux into the Sonniers' dangerous web of madness, murder and incest. But Robicheaux has devils of his own. And they've come out of hiding to destroy the tormented investigator - and the people he holds most dear.
Filled with the usual Burke combination of brilliant action and a stunning novelistic theme, A Stained White Radiance will keep Burke's fans riveted -- and win him many new ones.
More mayhem? Listen to more of James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux thrillers.

I love James Lee Burke. I love Will Patton. I had no idea I was getting an abridged book (my fault) but I could not finish it. DO NOT BUY THIS ABRIDGED BOOK
I love James Lee Burke's book and love to listen to them. I will listen to another that is not abridged. I wish there was some way to get my money back for this.
Do not abridge his books
enough has been cut
Please just offer the full version
An unabridged performance.
Hard to tell because it is abridged - and badly abridged as well.
I like the voice he give to Robicheaux...
Too much has already been cut! The story line is hard to follow in many places because of clumsy abridgment.
Skillful abridgment should leave the plot intact and characters fully formed. This abridgment does not accomplish that feat.
Perhaps it is because I listened to the abridged version, but I felt the story was shallow. Love the reading by Will Patton. Would not recommend this book to others.
Nobody as there really was no ending... It just ended.
No I really like the author.
I would not have cut any...
I would have added some more content
I made a mistake. I bought the abridged version by accident.
It was so short that I could not even figure out the ending. It just seem to stop and that was it.
I would like to download the Unabridged version at some point in time to try and decipher the final chapter.
