Why we think it’s a great listen: When it comes to author/narrator pairings, nobody tops James Lee Burke and Will Patton in the Robicheaux thrillers. Beloved Burke hero Detective Dave Robicheaux here returns to New Iberia to solve a series of grisly murders. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered. While the crimes have all the telltale signs of a serial killer, the death of Bernadette Latiolais, a high-school honor student, doesn’t fit.

I didn't like the female narrator as much as the male one. Her voice was a bit shrill. But, she was a good fit for Sadie.

Cobra warriors, genetically enhanced and implanted with an arsenal of covert weaponry, are the most dangerous guerilla fighters humanity has ever produced.

Book was good, but why book 3 when it clearly took place between book 1 and book 2? This irritated me because I like to listen to the books in cronilogical order.
