In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead by James Lee Burke
His bad guys are nasty, his action scenes brutally tense and his novels are gripping page turners. Mr Burke has such an amazing way with words. His can make you vividly see a rainstorm coming in from a distance, or Mockingbirds playing in a tree and even feel the cold barrel of a gun against your neck. James Lee Burke is the Grandmaster of American Crime Fiction and he proves it again with another Dave Robicheaux winner, 6th in the series. To top it off this time he has some paranormal help. I loved it. His natural dialogue style and no nonsense action makes this one of my favorite crime fiction series. Pick one up and find out why.
Feast Day of Fools by James Lee Burke.
I recently read The Hackberry Holland Trilogy. In Feast Day of Fools, book #3, there were so many nasty groups of bad guys chasing each other that I started to feel bad for the least offensive of them. Similar to my empathy for the Corleone family, I found myself feeling bad for some and wanting the worst for others. You'll love this book, there's so much going you won't know who to cheer for. I was so caught up in the novel I couldn't do anything else but read it straight to the end. Don't tell anyone but I took a couple if days off to finish.
