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.
Praise
"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."
"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."
"...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'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 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."
