CREOLE BELLE - James Lee Burke
Another Dave and Clete story that started out absolutely riviting and then sadly lost it's way.
Much " meaning of life" thinking from our hero which gets a bit old for those who have followed the series.
The boys are out to solve a murder or two, kids are involved, nasty oilmen types as well and professional killers. It really should have been much better and after finishing it I was still left with a big "why' regards several of the killings.
I hate to say it but the "Robicheaux" series has run its race, a pity because its been fantastic, I've been there all the way but this latest effort was just confusing, too many story lines and not enough resolution. (2012)
