Synopsis

Beloved hero Detective Dave Robicheaux returns to his roots, becoming entangled in a series of murders connected with an ex-convict turned bestselling author. Another bestselling triumph from James Lee Burke. A brilliant prose stylist, a preternaturally sensitive student of human nature, and a storyteller of the highest rank, James Lee Burke has created one of the classic characters of American fiction. Driven by a keen sense of right and wrong, forever in conflict with his twin demons of alcoholism and rage, Detective Dave Robicheaux is a flawed yet singularly sympathetic hero.Detective Dave Robicheaux is back home in New Iberia Parish and once again on the trail of a killer. But when his best friend is accused of murder and his daughter gets involved with some shady business, Robicheaux will need to muster every ounce of guts, wit, and investigative chops he has to solve the case.

About the Author

American mystery author, James Lee Burke, was born in Houston, Texas, explaining why most of the lead characters in his novels are Texan. He has won two Edgar awards, which is a very rare experience, and is a bestselling author of two short story collections and over thirty novels. Burke is best known for his Dave Robicheaux series. His Edgar Awards were for Black Cherry and Cimarron Rose. Two of his series were made into screen plays with each movie having a-list actors playing the Robicheaux character (Alec Baldwin - Heaven's Prisoners, and Tommy Lee Jones- In the Electric Mist).

A writer must usually hold down other employment while they attempt to gain a degree of following readers. Burke's various jobs included.......truck driver, newspaper reporter, social worker, land surveyor, unemployment system employee, Job Corps worker, teacher, and finally, novelist.

Burke lives in Montana with his wife, Pearl, two daughters, and four grandchildren. His favorite advice was given by Irving Stone, when Burke was nineteen.......... "Never write a story to pay your gas bill......if you do, be assured your utilities will be turned off".

This is the first time I have ever sent back an audiobook without listening to the whole thing. Slow moving, boring, pointless, no suspense or even a definable plot and way overboard on describing people or thoughts, etc. I am shocked at all the positive reviews. I mean the description on here leads one to believe it is fast paced and you are following an active investigation. I rely on my membership to bring me exciting fast paced police/suspense stories - not to waste my time. I wish I could give it negative stars.
