    Always a joy to read the latest by the incomparable literary crime fiction writer, James Lee Burke, painting a vivid and vibrant contemporary picture of the US, providing a political and social commentary on the cruelty, woes and horror inflicted on the land and its people by its political classes, devoid of any principles This may be the 22nd in the series, but he has not lost his lyricism and sureness of touch i

    I speak my mind because it hurts too much to bite my tongue.Much like ol Detective Dave Robicheaux and his die hard friend, P.I Clete Purcel, who have always led their lives in that manner in New Iberia They ve been joined at the hip since they were beat cops in New Orleans The panoramic views just get swampier like the bottom feeders who roll in with satchels filled with crime and mayhem Murder pops up on the daily menu.

    It has little too much navel gazing for me There s a tarot obsessed serial killer and Smiley is back Creepy, tormented, little guy, but somehow likable I want him to know that I m his friend.

    SMILEY IS BACK As those of us who have followed the Robicheaux novels know, whenever Smiley appears, bloodshed occurs One of the creepiest, original, multifaceted characters in fiction, it is so much better if he considers you his friend Or if you re a child, he loves children and ice cream.For that matter Dave himself is a complicated character A man who as s police officer has seen the worst of humanity, but who is also loyal, protecti

    A solid 4 stars.I first started reading James Lee Burke s booksthan 20 years ago My late father in law recommended his books to me, saying He writes the most vivid metaphors that I have ever read According to the author biography, he is now 82 years old He still has the gift of writing vivid metaphors that let the reader taste, smell and feel the swamps, bayous and everything else in Louisiana.This book has his main character, Detective Dave Rob

    You know what you re going to get when you pick up a JLB novel the story will be gutsy and the language ornate the plot will be convoluted and the thread of the piece sometimes hard to follow But one thing you can be sure of is that if you have any appreciation at all of his gift then day you pick up his next book will be a good day a very good day.I ve been following the adventures of his Louisiana based cop Dave Robicheaux for years and I ve grown to

    3.5 starsIn this 22nd book in the Dave Robicheaux series, the detective is after a brutal serial killer The book can be read as a standalone, but familiarity with the characters is a plus When people report hearing screams on the bayou near Cypremort Point in New Iberia, Louisiana, Sheriff s Detective Dave Robicheaux and Deputy Sean McClain drive over to investigate One of the homes in the area belongs to award winning Hollywood director Desmond Cormier who s i

    4.5 stars For good or bad, my preoccupation with death and the past had defined much of my life, and a long time ago I had made my separate peace with the world and abandoned any claim on reason or normalcy or the golden mean Waylon Jennings said it many years ago I ve always been crazy but it s kept me from going insane World weary New Iberia Police Detective Dave Robicheaux returns in James Lee Burke s 22nd book in this series, The New Iberia Blues Dave is visiting l

  9. Jim Jim says:

    3.5 starsIMHO opinion I think it is about time that Dave Robicheaux retires I know from previous novels that he is a Vietnam veteran and based on what I have read it sounds like he served early in the conflict In this story I learned that he saw the movie My Darling Clementine in 1946 and graduated from college in 1960 He must be about 80 years old now and is still an active duty detective His boss has been calling him Pops for years Dave is supposed to be a recovering alcohol

  10. Dave Dave says:

    The Louisiana bayou in all its musty, shaded glory is almost another character in Burke s Robicheaux series, a crime fiction series that is deeply character driven, dark, gloomy, haunted Dreams, fantasies, and twisted pasts merge with current cruel truths here Everyone in this whether a midget gunman, Hollywood royalty, or a picture show detective has a checkered mysterious past Everyone here is haunted by the ghosts of their past And, Robicheaux is like a drowning man struggling to s
