Reviews

There are not many crime writers about whom one might invoke the name of Zola for comparison, but Burke is very much in that territory. His stamping ground is the Gulf coast, and one of the great strengths of his work has always been the atmospheric background of New Orleans and the bayous. His bag, baggy novels are always about much more than the mechanics of the detective plot; his real subject, like the French master, is the human condition, seen in every situation of society. - INDEPENDENTThe gentle giant of US crime writers, Burke always ensures that his Louisiana detective Dave Robicheaux grapples with hot topics as much as with his own inner demons - I NEWSPAPEROne of the finest crime writers America has ever produced ... Spellbinding and dazzlingly observed - if you only buy one crime novel this Christmas make it this one - Geoffrey Wansell, DAILY MAIL on Light of the WorldJames Lee Burke continues to astonish ... I cannot think of another writer of crime fiction who has sustained such a level of excellence over so many novels featuring the same character. - THE TIMES
