Vintage James Lee Burke
How someone can manage to write such lyrical prose that nonetheless leaves you feeling like you've taken a punch in the face is a mystery to me. Fortunately, it's not to James Lee Burke. The characters in these stories have the same integrity and penchant for trouble that his Dave Robicheaux character does and you'll find yourself wincing as you foresee where they're headed. Burke's quite simply one of the best writers working today.
