This book is brand new and is in Very Fine condition. All corners are square and the textblock and binding are perfect. The dustjacket is also Very Fine and it is not price-clipped. James Lee Burke's novels featuring the detective David Robicheaux have brought increasing numbers of readers to the dangerous streets of New Orleans and the surrounding bayou country. It is very true when the Washington Post says "He makes you feel the laden air pressing close, smell the peculiar sweetness of banana trees and stagnant water, taste boudin and fried shrimp. James Lee Burke is first a novelist and second a detective writer." His lyrical prose really does describe Louisiana as it is. Living in a neighboring state to Louisiana I have had occasion to visit there and James Lee Burke hits the nail right on the head. He is a remarkable writer, suspenseful and compelling. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
