another good Robicheaux novel,
This review is from: Heaven's Prisoners (Paperback)
Being new to James Lee Burke, I am trying to read all the Robicheaux books in order, so I can learn how the main character unfolds. I don't think it's a necessity as Burke always explains succiently any loose ends, however as there are about 20 novels already written it is easy for me to start at the beginning and work my way through. This is installment No 2, and while I do struggle at times with Burke's writing style, it doesn't put me off as the storylines are always great.
In this book Robicheaux has left the New Orleans Police Department and sets up home with his wife Annie in New Iberia, the place where he grew up. The story revolves round the crash of a plane that Robicheaux witnesses. As always, things are not as they appear and here the story starts.
All in all another enjoyable novel and I'm off now to start Black Cherry Blues (No 3).
