What the Critics Say

"Burke's outstanding mystery series featuring Cajun detective Dave Robicheaux...has catapulted him from a well-reviewed if somewhat obscure author to a writer of best sellers....Reader Will Patton adds another star to his already superb resume with a fantastic reading." (Library Journal)

    "Ok, but Abridged it leaves holes"

    Again, after reading Tin Roof Blowdown, which is 5-star, I went back to read these earlier JLB / Robichaux audiobooks.

    Up to this one, they are all abridged, and the editor did a lousy job.

    many holes in story line, motives, etc.

    Editor chose to leave all the bayou descriptives in and cut all the story line.

    I would still rate it average; if you like JLB and Robichaux, this was one of the better stories.....

    Reader, Will Patton, fabulous as usual!!!

    Overall slight thumbs up.

    "still a good combo"

    I just got these to add to my audio books. I had read them already ,of course, as I had read a all of the wonderful James Lee Burke books. To have Will Patton read to me is just the best.
