Publisher's Summary

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.

    "I hate abridged books, there is no excuse for this"

    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


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Lee Burke again?

    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.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Do not abridge his books

    "Abridgements should be banned!"
    What would have made A Stained White Radiance better?

    An unabridged performance.


    If you’ve listened to books by James Lee Burke before, how does this one compare?

    Hard to tell because it is abridged - and badly abridged as well.


    What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?

    I like the voice he give to Robicheaux...


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Stained White Radiance?

    Too much has already been cut! The story line is hard to follow in many places because of clumsy abridgment.


    Any additional comments?

    Skillful abridgment should leave the plot intact and characters fully formed. This abridgment does not accomplish that feat.

    "Abrridged version Lacking in content and ending"
    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Nobody as there really was no ending... It just ended.


    Has A Stained White Radiance turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No I really like the author.


    Did Will Patton do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Stained White Radiance?

    I would not have cut any...
    I would have added some more content


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Cheated"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I feel cheated anytime I listen to an abridged version of James Lee Burke's novels narrated by Will Patton.
