Crusader's Cross | [James Lee Burke]

Crusader's Cross

For Dave Robicheaux, life in Louisiana is filled with haunting memories of the past - images from Vietnam, the violent streets of New Orleans, and his own troubled youth. In Crusader's Cross, a deathbed confession from an old schoolmate resurrects a story of injustice, the murder of a young woman, and a time in Robicheaux's life he has tried to forget. Her name may or may not have been Ida Durbin. It was back in the innocent days of the 1950s when Robicheaux and his brother, Jimmie, met heron a Galveston beach.

She was pretty and Jimmie fell for her hard - not knowing she was a prostitute on infamous Post Office Street, with ties to the mob. Then Ida was abducted and never seen again.

    "Will Patton is a gem with a JLB story"

    This is my fourteenth Dave Robicheaux story and it is my second audio book read by Will Patton. For me, Will Patton's evocative Southern style, brings to life so much of the lyricism of JLB. Will Patton complements JLB, like Cletus complements Dave!

    'Crusader's Cross' is a terrific tale, interweaving events from the past and present, that are both tragic and forgiving in nature. As usual, Dave and Clete find themselves in diabolically terrible situations - at one point we fear for the life of Cletus and for a good part of the book, we wince at the catastrophe Dave brings down upon himself. It is difficult not to be empathic and sympathetic to the flaws in the character of Dave Robicheaux, because it is in enabling Dave's atonement (Crusader's Cross), that JLB gives hope for the redemption of everyman - including me!.
