Author Info
James Lee Burke
Though he began his writing career writing literary novels, James Lee Burke turned to writing popular mysteries in 1987, with a series of novels featuring New Orleans ex-cop Dave Robichaux. After his wife and father are murdered, Robichaux explores the darker sides of New Orleans from the perspective of a man who has been around the block a few times. Burke's hard-boiled prose style has earned him legions of fans, numerous bestsellers, critical acclaim, and an Edgar Award for best novel.
"Burke's lush, humid prose and the controlled otherworldly aspects of this plot deftly capture the inhumanity of the bad guys and the more common frailties of ordinary folk."
"Burke tells a story in a style all his own: language that's alive, electric; he's a master at setting mood, laying in atmosphere, all with quirky, raunchy dialogue that's a delight."
"James Lee Burke is one of the best writers of crime fiction in America. His prose is an uncommon mixture of taut realism and poetic eloquence."
"...he tells an arresting story, his characters are eminently believable, he gets off an occasional dead-center shot at one target or another, and he writes about Louisiana and New Orleans just about as well as anyone ever has."
"Burke is off on a chase that is at once engrossing and...convincing."
"In Burning Angel, Burke shows why he is one of the top five writers of crime fiction alive."
From the Publisher
Annotation In New Orleans, Detective Dave Robicheaux takes up the case of the Fontenot family, an old family in danger of losing their ancestral land. Local mobsters have something to say about Robicheaux's interference with the Fontenot's, and some how this all leads back to Sonny Boy Marsallus, a gambler who decided to head for Central America after he ran up against the powerful Giacana family one too many times.
Editors Note The bestselling author of Dixie City Jam mesmerizes readers with another entry in his brilliant series that features Cajun detective Dave Robicheaux. Here Dave finds himself entangled with the affairs of the Fontenot family, descendants of sharecroppers who are in danger of losing the land they've lived on for more than 100 years.
