    " While he does write beautifully and I love reading about New Orleans. This one was just a little too gritty for me. I like Robicheaux but I started with a book later in the series. He is a flawed but genial character. In this phase of the series he seems to be competing with the bad guys to destroy himself. It is not a very pretty contest. "

    " James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux series is probably one of my all time favourite series and I tend to listen to them on CD because the reading is fantastic, or to put it another way, it is the best listening experience I have had with any book or series. However, I digress. I decided to start from the beginning, I have following Dave and Clete for many years now and I decided to go back to the first book to remember what it was like and why I have become such a huge fan. As I expected, I was not disappointed. I highly recommend James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux series, caution, one gets easily attached. "

    " I appreciated the straight forward style of Burke's writing. He gets the right details in the story and doesn't over work them, creating three dimensional characters with a sparity of words. Robicheaux comes to life as more than a gritty cop. I appreciated the characters for their imperfections as much as anything else when the story ended. "

    " This is Burke's first book about Det.Robicheaux. Since I have not read them in sequence, I'm now reading the earlier books to "fill in the blanks." I do love this author's style of writing. Can't wait to read the rest. "
