    DescriptionCREOLE BELLE begins where the last book in the Dave Robicheaux series, THE GLASS RAINBOW, ended. Dave is in a recovery unit in New Orleans, where a Creole girl named Tee Jolie Melton visits him and leaves him an iPod with the country blues song 'Creole Belle' on it. Then she disappears. Dave becomes obsessed with the song and the memory of Tee Jolie and goes in search of her sister, who later turns up inside a block of ice floating in the Gulf. Meanwhile, there has been an oil well blowout on the Gulf, threatening the cherished environs of the bayous. CREOLE BELLE is James Lee Burke at his very best, with beloved series hero Dave Robicheaux leading the charge against the destruction of both the land and the people he has sworn to protect.

    Review quote
    There are not many crime writers about whom one might invoke the name of Zola for comparison, but Burke is very much in that territory. His stamping ground is the Gulf coast, and one of the great strengths of his work has always been the atmospheric background of New Orleans and the bayous. His big, baggy novels are always about much more than the mechanics of the detective plot; his real subject, like the French master, is the human condition, seen in every situation of society. INDEPENDENT The gentle giant of US crime writers, Burke always ensures that his Louisiana detective Dave Robicheaux grapples with hot topics as much as with his own inner demons. i newspaper Burke is the poet of the tortured South and never fails to connect at all levels TIME OUT Menacingly dark but with chinks of glittering perception, Lee Burke is the king of Southern noir DAILY MIRROR on Feast Day of Fools Creole Belle is one of the more substantial Burke novels... but every word here... is fully justified GOOD BOOK GUIDE
