Black Cherry Blues | [James Lee Burke]

Black Cherry Blues

Haunted by the memory of his wife's murder and his father's untimely death, ex-New Orleans cop Dave Robicheaux spends his days in a fish-and-tackle business. But when an old friend makes a surprise appearance, Robicheaux finds himself thrust back into the violent world of Mafia goons and wily federal agents. From the Louisiana bayou to Montana's tribal lands, Robicheaux is running from the bottle, a homicide rap, a professional killer and the demons of his past.

Publisher's Summary

Haunted by the memory of his wife's murder and his father's untimely death, ex-New Orleans cop Dave Robicheaux spends his days in a fish-and-tackle business. But when an old friend makes a surprise appearance, Robicheaux finds himself thrust back into the violent world of Mafia goons and wily federal agents. From the Louisiana bayou to Montana's tribal lands, Robicheaux is running from the bottle, a homicide rap, a professional killer and the demons of his past.

Rich with fascinating characters and dramatic plot twists, the audio debut of James Lee Burke and his Cajun detective Dave Robicheaux recalls the best of Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe -- tough, complex and thoroughly entertaining.

    "Abridged Version Leaves Gaps, But Worth Listening"

    I suggest reading the book, then listening to this version. The book is amazing, but the abridged audio version leaves out too many of the strands of the intricate web of the story. That said, The interpretation by Will Patton brings the characters to life in way that your imagination alone, no matter how fertile, cannot. Any opportunity to listen to Will Patton reading the works of James Lee Burke is a rare gift. It is that simple. Enjoy.
