I speak my mind because it hurts too much to bite my tongueMuch like ol Detective Dave Robicheaux and his die hard friend PI Clete Purcel who have always led their lives in that manner in New Iberia They ve been joined at the hip since they were beat cops in New Orleans The panoramic views just get swampier like the bottom feeders who roll in with satchels filled with crime and mayhem Murder pops up on the daily menuSome talented authors bring the Thanksgiving feast between the pages But hear me now James Lee Burke brings the feast with an abundance of all the trimmings Savory spicy and especially tangy Each phrase wraps around like tendrils focused on finding that featherbed in your mind The descriptors are vibrant and the dialogue slams down a clenched fist on a hard surface Such good good stuffBurke creates a bit of heaviness in the Robicheaux scenario this time We feel Dave s angst as the years and the mind spiders are catching up with him Although he still hits the ground running this long term good vs evil has taken its toll But there seems to be an everlasting flame in both Dave and Clete that keeps their finger on the pulse of the underbelly in Bayou Teche So many years behind the wheel allows you to sniff out the scent of the deadly from afarDave visits a former New Iberia down in the mouth kid who made it big in Hollywood as an award winning director and film maker Desmond Cormier has brought along a sleezy actor and friend in the likes of Antoine Butterworth They have set up filming not far from the spacious home of Desmond While looking through a telescope on Desmond s patio Dave spots something floating in the bayou It turns out to be a dead woman strapped to a wooden cross with a Maltese cross around her ankle Needless to say the stakes are gonna be high in this oneThe New Iberia Blues is a deliciously tangled web with even Dave s impressive daughter Alafair in the mix She s a lawyer turned screenplay writer and has been hired by Desmond Cormier for his latest film This could be a big break for her Dave s not having the same kind of thoughts about nowTie in an escaped convict a new partner tarot cards the Mob a very short pale psychopath and plenty of gris gris floating with bad fortune on the bayouand you ve got a stellar offering from one of the best fiction writers in the businessJames Lee Burke Be still my heart

witnesses the escape of Texas inmate Hugo Tillinger who may hold the key to Robicheaux’s case As they wade further into the investigation they end up in the crosshairs of the mob the deranged Chester Wimple and the dark ghosts Robicheaux has been running from for years Ultimately it’s up to Robicheaux to stop them all but he’ll have to summon a light he’s never seen or felt to save himself and those he loves. 35 starsIMHO opinion I think it is about time that Dave Robicheaux retires I know from previous novels that he is a Vietnam veteran and based on what I have read it sounds like he served early in the conflict In this story I learned that he saw the movie My Darling Clementine in 1946 and graduated from college in 1960 He must be about 80 years old now and is still an active duty detective His boss has been calling him Pops for years Dave is supposed to be a recovering alcoholic I am not an expert but it is my understanding that in recovery you are supposed to avoid people places and things Dave does not avoid any of these How many times has he been shot now He sees ghosts and even those closest to him worry about himThese gripes aside James Lee Burke is a very talented author His prose is lush and vivid The characters are fascinating When you read a Dave Robicheaux novel you are transported to the bayous of Louisiana You can hear the music and taste the foods That is how good the writing is In this outing there is of course Dave Robicheaux with all of his character flaws He is joined by his best friend and former partner Clete Purcel who has plenty of his own flaws And Smiley is back Readers of earlier novels may remember Smiley A very creepy character He loves children ice cream and Wonder Woman Everyone else well you d better hope you are his

is talking with Desmond when he looks through a telescope on the deck and sees a woman nailed to a cross floating in the bayou She has only been dead for a few hours but this is only the first in a series of seemingly ritualistic murdersAs always Dave Robicheaux seems to be battling an idyllic past with the demonic present The casinos and the mob the corporations and the Hollywood types Each
