Glass Rainbow

I finished up another James Lee Burke book this morning. He has become one of my favorite authors. I've read about ten of his books and all of them have been very good. I actually listen to the books he's written. Will Patton reads most of his work on Audible. I think he adds an X factor to Burke's work.
Most of his stories are set in small towns in Louisiana just outside of New Orleans. His descriptions and dialog are excellent.
The book I just finished is Glass Rainbow and It was one of his best.  His stories are about detectives so there is sex, violence and language, but when he weaves them into his stories, they help to  paint a compelling picture. If such things bother you, you should steer clear, but his content is tame compared to a lot of popular fiction.
It's been a long day today and I'm running out of steam. I hope you all have a remarkable weekend.


  1. That is an author I've never read. I will have to buy a book by him now! SMILE

  2. I suggest Black Cherry Blues. It was one of the first books that I read by him.
