    Just outstanding

    Another magical tale with outstanding characters set in a New Orleans beautifully described by James Lee Burke. Dave Robichaud and Clete Purcell personify all that's good and bad in man. And Burke's villains are the absolute scariest anywhere. His creative descriptions of the New Orleans weather conditions are classically written. I hope he writes a hundred more novels.

    A dark past

    private-investigators, thriller, suspense, mystery, crime-fiction The present is the product of the past. Nowhere is this more clearly apparent than in the stories centered on Dave Robicheaux in the bayou. If you've never read any of these you should prepare yourself for the dark side of life and the calling to investigate and work for justice whether as law enforcement or private. That being said, I loved this one at least as much as any of the others and hope that he continues to write more. Can't call this an unbiased endorsement as I confess to being a Dave Robicheaux addict. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Simon and Schuster Publishing via NetGalley. Thank you!

    Louisiana police procedural

    The New Iberia Blues by James Lee Burke shines with beautiful prose. This is a tale about a search for a possible serial killer in the bayous of Louisiana. Dave Robicheaux is the detective leading the investigation of people from the backwoods, Hollywood types, the mafia etc. This novel did not do it for me. I have quit after 200 pages, which is something I have a lot of trouble doing. The author has written many books about Detective Dave Robicheaux and this was only my second. I found that there were too many characters, which slowed down the action considerably. This is only my opinion. James Lee Burke is a much praised and popular author. Thank you to Simon & Schuster and NetGalley for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest opinion.
