Critical acclaim for James Lee Burke and the Billy Bob Holland Series:
"Burke is a master at setting mood, laying in atmosphere, all with quirky, raunchy dialogue that’s a delight."
"Billy Bob Holland is as angst-ridden and morally shell-shocked as Dave Robicheaux ever was, but like Robicheaux, Holland’s moral compass always points to true north…Don’t miss out."
–Rocky Mountain News
"Burke [is] one of the best writers of our time. His plots build tension to such a pitch that it tempts one to rush through his books. But his writing demands that his works be savored."
"Burke is known for the lush bayou cadences that give solid flesh to his longtime series hero, deputy sheriff Dave Robicheaux, and this prose style moves easily to the steamy precincts of southeast Texas."
