Creole Belle (Dave Robicheaux, #19)
Aug 10, 2012
Another great effort from one of my three favorite authors. I read a lot of Robert B. Parker because his books are just pure , unadulterated fun that can be read in an evening. James Lee Burke is a whole different kettle of fish. His books are like reading a creole or cowboy Dostoyevsky (which one depends on the central character). He has great insight into human behavior and his books are heavy with commentary on the human condition. Frankly, I would'nt put up with all the philosophical introspection except that he writes so beautifully. His similies make wonderful pictures appear in your mind. At page 402, I felt certain that Clete's daughter would not be allowed to survive until the end and at page 450 I was'nt too sure about Clete himself. Thankfully, I was wrong on both counts. Can't wait for his next.
