The New Iberia Blues

No one paints a picture of life in the sultry Louisiana bayou better than Burke. Readers drawn to the Cajun grit and Robicheaux's charm will love wading with him through the mists and Spanish moss of the swampland, peering into his psyche while hunting a psychopathic killer. [See Prepub Alert, 7/2/18.]

Robicheaux

Two-time Edgar Award winner, recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship for Creative Arts in fiction, and New York Times best seller Burke (Cadillac Jukebox; Light of the World) delivers another excellent thriller in the Robicheaux series that stands on its own. Readers of Robert B. Parker's and Michael Connelly's novels will enjoy the harrowed protagonist and the back-and-forth dialog.

House of the Rising Sun

Readers of best-selling Burke's novels about the Holland family (Wayfaring Stranger) will gravitate to this prequel featuring the well-known and notoriously cantankerous Hackberry Holland. The large cast features complex and compelling characters, and the action deftly builds to a roaring boil. [See Prepub Alert, 6/8/15.]

Wayfaring Stranger

Similar in sweep to Edna Ferber's Giant, this intricately plotted novel is recommended to readers interested in dramatic renderings of the societal changes of postwar America. While there is the suspense that Burke's fans expect, they will find the pace slower than in his previous novels. [See Prepub Alert, 1/10/14.]

Feast Day of Fools

Though not as well known as Dave Robicheaux, Hackberry is a compelling character. This rich novel will satisfy Burke's fans and should draw new ones who have not yet had the privilege of reading his works. [See Prepub Alert, 2/28/11.]
