Reviews for Creole Belle
I cannot recommend this book highly enough. James Lee Burke writes in a truly 'filmic' style, with enormous ability to give the reader a 'fly-on-the wall' capability.
The main character (and narrator) Dave Robicheaux and his side kick,Clete Purcel,
manage to get in the way of some extremely nasty and evil people.What I love about this author, is his ability to give the reader a great sense of social justice being denied, either by big business, and the fallout suffered by the environment and the inhabitants of the deep south. The well-read reader will savour the references to philosophy, and the finely drawn descriptions of the people and landscapes the protagonists inhabit. I also found wry humour in some situations, and I did chuckle
at the writing from time to time. I sincerely hope that Mr Burke can give his readers more books of this calibre in the future.There is truth and honesty in writing of this quality.
Vale, Mr Burke, and a huge 'thank-you!' (would make a great film!) by Janice Margaret Warne
