A start

by DowninginReading on Aug 22, 2013

For those unfamiliar with James Lee Burke, let me state first that he is one of the best stylists, that is writers, working today. Don't let that scare you away if you do not like MFA approved authors or snotty reviewers or 'arty' books with no discernible ending. Burke writes about meaty issues of conscience and violence and human weakness, about struggles with our evil demons and the triumph, albeit narrow, of overall good in the world. This was his stand alone book before he started to reach a larger audience with the Dave and Clete books, and after he had had several other non series books published. It marks the beginning of his career in that he went unpublished for something like ten years while suffering a hundred or so rejections of "The Lost Get-Back Boogie". I'll not waste space with a plot synopsis; they are available wherever the book is sold. I merely express my opinion that this is a minor masterpiece well worth the time and expense. Highly recommended.
