Loved it! Fascinating story! The characters and intertwined lives seem totally realistic.
Another great book with multiple plots that keeps you on your toes. I love these books.
I am a big JL Burke / Robicheaux fan - another great one. Will Patton does such a great job. Would recommend!!
A entertaining story, had the listener thinking they knew who the culprit was...maybe when he was revealed it was a bit of huh, to me anyways. Thought the reader in this one wasn't of the same caliber of previous readers but I suppose I could of read it myself.LOL
Maybe I'm just a fan of this author, but I like all his books and this one lives up to the others as a great read.
This was great. I do not listen to too many of his in a row because I want to enjoy them from time to time. Will Patton is really good.
This novel was excellent. I couldn't wait to hear the next chapters. I highly recommend it to anyone.
I was enjoying this book, until I started thinking about the timeline. The more I thought about it, the more the main character, Robichaud, became an unbelievable and unrealistic character. Robichaud supposedly has an "entanglement" with a hooker in the late 1950s when he was supposedly a young adult (18 or 20). Then, he supposedly served in the Viet Nam War, but by that time, he would have been too old to be drafted. At the time the book takes place, which is after the World Trade Center attacks, he's still an active cop on the force and he would have to be in his 60s, at least, by then. There is even a reference to Robichaud having a conversation when he was little with a Civil War veteran. I just found all of this to be too ridiculous and unbelivable and it ruined the rest of the story for me.
This book was excellent-the amazing imagery lured me in and did not allow me to daydream-I was riveted by every word. I could hear the sounds, smell the smells... The narrator, Will Patton, did a fantastic job. He embodied the character of Dave Robicheaux-the sad, angry, resigned, haunted hero of this series. My only complaint would be the ending-maybe I read too much into some of the hints and clues given throughout the book, but I was left hanging on a few key points. Otherwise, very satisfying-highly recommended.
James Lee Burke is my favorite author and he just keeps getting better. I've read everything he has ever written. And no one can narrate like Will Patton. I read the book and then I listen to the audio book. You will not be disappointed with either of them.
It was a very interesting story and kept my attention. I would highly suggest this book.
James Lee Burke's prose is so clearly descriptive of people and their environs that one actually feels as part of the story. I could smell the stale bayou water as I listened to the latest in the Robicheaux saga. Great story, and no one else can do Dave Robicheaux like Will Patton. The words flow from his mouth like the sugar from the old Louisiana plantations, and he makes the reader feel every little nuance of the character. You won't be disappointed.
