it was amazing
Read from April 19 to 25, 2012 — I own a copy

Perfect imagery paints the scene in the second entry of James Lee Burke’s ongoing Dave Robicheaux mystery series. Often as bad as he is good, Dave Robicheaux proves to be an intriguing character on many levels. He has his demons, and he fights them nearly every day of his life. The supporting characters are as intriguing as the lead, and each one proves far from perfect. And the worst ones help determine a new definition of evil.

Were it not for his strong sense of character and command of the written word, this novel might have failed. But it doesn’t by any stretch of the imagination. It succeeds over and over again. If you like strong characters and a strong sense of place, then I highly recommend this gorgeous read into the depths of humanity.

Cbj I really like the film too.

Robert I haven't seen the film yet. I'll have to add it to my watch list.
