    Burke s Robicheaux novels are known for their exploration of the nature of man, good vs evil, suffering, penance and forgiveness, big themes relevant to all life The fact that the novels are set in New Orleans, with all that city s long and storied and messy history, accentuates the stories The city and the state of Louisiana around it are characters in Burk s series and add to some of his most evocative writing.In Creole Belle, Dave and Clete have become mixed up in something they don t reall Burke s Robicheaux novels are known for their exploration of the nature of man, good vs evil, suffering, penance and forgiveness, big the...

    Love Dave Robicheaux and always will, even though yes, sometimes James Lee Burke s prose can tend toward the purple, purple like the brilliant bruise of a sunset over the bayou on a late summer evening when the doves call a mournful tune like the blues and the nighthawks begin to flit in the dusk between the pine trees and the gnarled boughs of the cypress, when the humidity breaks and there s just a hint of cool in the murky air spreading over this land where the anger between those who have mo Love Dave Robicheaux and always will, even though yes, sometimes James Lee Burke s prose can tend toward the purple, purple like the brilliant bruise of a sunset over the bayou on ...

    I enjoy Burke s descriptive prosebut not in the middle of a firefight in the climax of the novel Unrealistic Amateurish outrageous when you consider the number of novels that Burke has written.Burke also avoids the use of his own instruction to take out all unnecessary words There were pages and pages of descriptive language that added nothing to the story I felt I was reading a Burke parody.Shotguns do not blow up and split from the muzzle to the breach when mud plugs the barrel Don t I enjoy Burke s descriptive prosebut not in the middle of a firefight in the climax of the novel Unrealistic Amateu...
