Sukey's favorite

When Dave Robicheaux's Vietnam nightmares recur, he tells himself that he "will never again have to witness the widescale suffering of innocent civilians, nor the betrayal and abandonment of our countrymen when they need us most." In The Tin Roof Blowdown, James Lee Burke's 16th, best yet Dave Robicheaux novel, Dave's deep in that horror again as he searches the devastation of post-Katrina New Orleans for two serial rapists, the vigilante who may have shot one of them and for his dear friend Jude LeBlanc, a morphine-addicted priest. Burke has conjured up Southern Louisiana in previous books, but never as vividly and with so much brokenhearted love as here; you're in the midst of flooded, lawless chaos; you see the bodies, smell the stink, feel the heat and helplessness, agonize with Dave as he tries to fight injustice and curb his own rage at the government that let his beloved country down. And you're immersed in gripping, intricately tangled subplots, in the greed and evil that surfaced along with the heroism and humanity. Will Patton, Burke's audio interpreter par excellence, offers us another pitch-perfect performance.
