When former Klansman and piney-woods outcast Aaron Crown is finally imprisoned for a decades-old murder, it is to Detective Dave Robicheaux that he proclaims his innocence loudest. Crown seems to be a lightning rod for every kind of trouble that the state of Louisiana can unearth. A documentary film writer seeking to prove Crown’s innocence is found murdered; a button man for the New Orleans mob accuses Robicheaux of taking a pay-off to ignore Crown.

But it is when Buford LaRose—scion of an old Southern family and author of a book on the Crown case—is elected governor that Dave Robicheaux’s involvement with Aaron Crown deepens to a level he can barely fathom. And it is Buford’s social-climbing wife, Karyn, with whom Robicheaux had an affair years before, who proves to be his most poisonous adversary.

Filled with thrilling adventure, lightning-paced action, and street smart realism, Cadillac Jukebox is a brilliant addition to Burke’s standout Dave Robicheaux series.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A ripeness of villains, the familiar good guys and some who travel the territory in between comprise the cast of the rich ninth Dave Robicheaux adventure.” 

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Will this case offer yet another opportunity to lose control, to jeopardize loved ones in an effort to take a stand against onrushing modernity? The answer is yes and no, but in that refreshing ambiguity—hopeful yet melancholic—lies a remarkable rebirth for a series that, unlike so many others, has managed to absorb commercial success without sacrificing quality.

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Only Walter Mosley rivals Burke’s ability to burrow so deeply into his detective’s world that he creates a compelling sense of personal mythology.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller

    " It pains me to give this audio two stars, but is was the abridged version of the book and it left a lot out as I was totally unsure of the plot and then it ended and left me wondering what went on?? Think I will have to review the book now. "

    " James Lee Burke is one of best writers of our times. He is one of the few writers whose books I will purchase in hard cover because I can't wait for the paperback version to come out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Justin | 1/30/2014

    " Another great story by Mr. Burke. I think if I was Dave Robicheaux, I'd get as far away from New Iberia as humanly possible! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Liz | 1/29/2014

    " Well, well. My first James Lee Burke and it was quite a fun trip. Very raw, very evocative of New Orleans and a real page turner. If you like police procedurals and authors like Joseph Wambaugh, this is for you. "
