The Tin Roof Blowdown audiobook cover art

Gripping and gruesome

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 10-16-07

This was my first Dave Robicheaux novel. I felt that the characters were thrown at me, as if expecting that I knew the history behind them and relationships tying them together. Once I got past that, the story had me absolutely captivated. The characters are extremely complex and their actions, thoughts, hopes, and regrets are contemplated in great detail. The story is completely convincing. Many of the situations described during the survival-of-the-fittest events during Hurricane Katrina while absolutely gruesome and gut-wrenching are easy to believe. The description of post Katrina apocolypse gripped my heart with dispair. I cannot recommend this book enough.
