If you are new to James Lee Burke and the Robicheaux stories; then let me tell you these are amongst the best of American crime novels. Start any where in the series, it is not essential to read them in order.
James Lee Burke writes lyrically about a time and place he obviously knows very well. It is not so much the story that attracts me to his writing but his wonderful descriptions full of warmth and humour..."Those truths have less to do with the dead than the awareness that we are no different from them, that they are still with us and we are still with them, and there is no afterlife but only one life"......"I admired him and perhaps sometimes even envied his combination of composure and ardor, as well as his ability to float above the pettiness that characterizes the greater part of our lives"....."With each day that passed, I felt as though the world I had known was being airbrushed out of a painting"....."She was one of those women who seemed to choose solitude and plainness over beauty, and anger over happiness"...."people are what they do, not what they think, not what they say"....."He's one step away from the worm food and knows it"...."Louisiana is not a state; it's an outdoor mental asylum in which millions of people stay bombed most of their lives"...."Solitude and peace with oneself are probably the only preparation one has for death"....."If you have attended the dying, you know what their last moments are like. They anticipate the separation of themselves from the world of the living before you do, and they accept it with dignity and without complaint"...
The book, then, a little below par, comparing the huge body of work Burke is leaving behind. His recurrent themes of class, the overpowering and pervasives environments that thrill his readers during his doubts and certainties, his majestically observed alcoholic observations that are so close to the skin that they seem straight from someone who must have very skin_deep relations with the addictions to come up with them (maybe?) I. have followed Burke from ..to. and at times I wish I could write down his sentences and stuff them in my pocket to use them to impress someone later. I am that king of a fan. This book, though, I found underwhelming. It is almost painful for me to say.
