James Lee Burke should be called our Prose Laureate. His body of work is the direct descendant of William Faulkner and extends south from The Grapes of Wrath and west of Tobacco Road. He has raised to a position of honor the Bayous and the rivers of Louisiana, plus all the state has stood for, good people and bad, politicians and pirates, the great and the defeated by weather and mismanaged government, no matter if the un-surmountable is Federal neglect, or Statewide corruption or downright local hooliganism. The women freshen up and sweat ten minutes later, the men forget to shave because they're out in the dusk of an afternoon, to commit crimes in order to preserve the best in their environment and they do the best they can to weed out the truly intolerable But underneath the punishments, the men and the women understand and even love their bad guys because they grew up with them and they remember them when.. before hope was burned out of their eyes.

Add to that the Creole lilt, the undulating music inherent in the caterwauling of the people who inhabit his pages, and one wonders if he will continue to write and enhance his body of work. If this writer had a Russian last name, Putin or not, Jones would be given parades in his honor every other week; but we, the USA as a country are too busy watering down our language and homogenizing our attitudes to please everyone..... while James Lee Burke moseys down to his shack on the creek, gets a cold drink from the cooler, checks on the fish haul for the day, and returns to his porch to dip a pen into the darkened blood which informs his work and thrills the careful and respectful reader. Read it all in the order in which it is written and you will enhance your own life. His books will never be dated, will always instruct by showing without shame the hardscrap life on the rivers of Louisiana.

I'm a fan of Burke' s writing & of his Dave Robicheaux series. This book begins with Dave diving off the shore off the Louisiana coast and investigating an old sunken Nazi submarine. As the story progresses numerous people are interested in it & other Nazi sunken submarines from WW 2 in and around the gulf area. Some are including a man named Hippo Brimstine,on obese leader of the Democrats in New Orleans, Tommy Lonighan , an Irish local entrepreneur with casino's and dealings with the local mob characters, the Calucci brother's. The most desirous of these submarines is the bad guy in the book Will Buchalter and his sister Marie Gilbeaux. They weave through most of the book causing chaos and destruction.
I enjoyed the read.

I read a lot of books, and I'm now convinced that nobody writes as beautifully as James Lee Burke. It's as if his pen is a knife and he slowly peels you layer by layer, right down to your inner soul. His books make you really feel the characters.

Don't miss out. Read a Burke book and enjoy yourself as you marvel at the man's ability to turn a phrase.

5 star writing, 3 star plot, 1 star characters. Dave Robicheaux is pretty much a sanctimonious thug and his buddy Clete is simply a thug. They seem redeemed somewhat by the fact that everyone else in the book is even more low rent (other than the obligatory little wife and sweet kid). Having said that, of course Burke is a fantastic writer and tries his best to pull the mess off. Not his best by any means.

Dixie City Jam is another great book in this series, and those who have grown fond of Dave and Clete will certainly find some thing to enjoy in this one. JLB's writing was fantastic as always. The reason this edition gets only 3 stars is because of the haphazard, ham-handed, slapstick conversion to Kindle. It's almost as if the publisher only recently learned of Kindle this year, and has rushed through the file conversion to maximize return. The errors are numerous, glaring and distracting. While I thrilled to see so many JLB titles on the Kindle, how about we spend a day or two proofing the conversion files and doing justice to the work of this fine writer?

As Burke's books go, this particular one is par for the course. If you enjoy his books, you'll probably like this one.

But after shelling out good money for this Kindle version, I am flat pissed about the hundreds of typos throughout the book. Did anybody actually read it after converting it to digital format??

Amazon has a lot of nerve, charging more for the Kindle version than for the paperback. I can't believe Burke (or whoever represents him) allows this to happen.
