I love James Lee Burke. Probably my favorite pop writer currently working. The mix of his typical strong cops-and-robbers mystery with an unexpected dose of Stephen King-ish occultism works really well here.

While this works on its own, I don't really recommend reading it as the first Robicheaux book you pick up. You're kind of expected to know who all the players are going in. That said, it's still incredibly strong, and the last chapter is worth the price of admission.

Erica This was my first book in the series and I was initially confused, but loved Dave, the poetic style and the bad guy, Legion (sp?) really had me wondering along with the guy who said he was Sal Angelo.
