I wouldn’t read another one of James Lee Burke’s novels but that’s because I’ve already read four. Once you’ve read two you’re pretty much done with Mr. Burke. He has a hackneyed formula and he’s sticking to it.

Not poisonously bad, tolerable in a small dose but there are far better things to read.
