In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead

My latest read was "In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead" by James Lee Burke. This is book six in the Dave Robicheaux series. This story is structured like many of the earlier Robicheaux stories, but Burke adds an engaging phycological/spiritual aspect to this story.

My latest read was "A Stained White Radiance" by James Lee Burke. This novel's focus is a troubled local family in New Iberia that Robicheaux has known since he was a child. It has an intricate narrative that intertwines Burke's longstanding themes including the quest for power, the pursuit of revenge, the complexities of organized crime, and the haunting memories of Vietnam.

My latest read was A Morning for Flamingos by James Lee Burke. This is the fourth book in the Dave Robicheaux series. This is more than just a detective novel; it's a deep dive into the heart and soul of its characters and setting.

Black Cherry Blues — Latest Read

Finished up Black Cherry Blues by James Lee Burke. This is the third book in Burke's Dave Robicheaux series. This is a strong entry in the series, but I still feel it is hard to accept some of the choices and risks the main character makes.

Heaven’s Prisoners — Latest Read

Heaven’s Prisoners by James Lee Burke is the second novel in his Dave Robicheaux series. I read the first book, The Neon Rain, back at the beginning of the summer. Robicheaux is cut from the same mold as Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch. I like the character, but he definitely has his flaws.
