summary The New Iberia Blues

review The New Iberia Blues 103 S back Clete witnesses the escape of Texas inmate Hugo Tillinger who may hold the key to Robicheaux’s case As they wade further into the investigation they end up in the crosshairs of the mob the deranged Chester Wimple and the dark ghosts Robicheaux has been running from for years Ultimately it’s up to Robicheaux to stop them all but he’ll have to summon a light he’s never seen or felt to save himself and those he loves. 45 starsFor good or bad my preoccupation with death and the past had defined much of my life and a long time ago I had made my separate peace with the world and abandoned any claim on reason or normalcy or the golden mean Waylon Jennings said it many years ago I ve always been crazy but it s kept me from going insaneWorld weary New Iberia Police Detective Dave Robicheaux returns in James Lee Burke s 22nd book in this series The New Iberia Blues Dave is visiting local boy turned film wunderkind Desmond Cormier at his waterfront estate looking at the water through binoculars when Dave thinks he sees a body tied to a giant cross floating on the wavesAs Dave is than prone to seeing things that don t exist like the ghosts of soldiers he fought with and those he killed in Vietnam he asks Cormier and his odd friend Antoine Butterworth what they see Both claim to see nothing yet Dave was right there was a woman floating on the waves and she has been crucified to a wooden crossThe woman had apparently worked for The Innocence Project but was recently interested in a career in film Cormier and Butterworth both claim never to have seen her before but how did she wind up in the water near his house Meanwhile Clete Purcel Dave s loyal yet troubled best friend and former partner witnessed an escaped death row inmate from Texas running for shelter and no one is uite sure whether he is guilty of the horrible crimes of which he is accused or if he happens to be the victim of his overzealous natureThe crucified woman s murder is just the tip of the iceberg in a series of increasingly ritualistic grotesue murders which rock Dave and his colleagues They don t know whether these crimes are the act of a deviant killer who believes in the occult or if they re simply being staged to appear that way And as Dave s suspicion of Cormier and Butterworth and their movie making colleagues grows he and his colleagues also run afoul of the mob corrupt cops within their own parish and a deranged man with a strange honor system It s than enough to make Dave uestion everything he believes in including his hard fought sobriety and puts at risk everyone and everything he lovesJames Lee Burke is one of the finest living writers today I have been reading his books for 30 years now and not only is his storytelling top notch but few match his talent for imagery and setting as well When I first started reading his books he described New Orleans so vividly that when I made my first trip there I was amazed at how spot on what I pictured in my mind was to the reality I saw Here s just an example of his poetic imageryThe sunrise was striped with pink and purple clouds the live oaks a deep green after the rain the bayou high above the banks the lily pads and elephant ears rolling with the current It was a study in the mercurial nature of light and shadow and the way they form and re create the external world second by second with no guidance than a puff of windBurke s books are brooding and atmospheric meditations on good and evil and man s penchant for both and the demons that haunt us They re also stories about fierce love friendship and loyalty and how sometimes our need for self preservation leads us down paths we d be better off avoiding The New Iberia Blues is trademark Burke full of twists and turns tremendously thought provoking and dense with philosophical and psychological insight and a sometimes troubling look at the horrible things people do to one another sometimes for no reason at allThese books aren t as fast paced as typical crime novels but they re just so well written I enjoy the time to marvel at Burke s language and the complexity of his flawed characters Reading this series for as long as I have always feels like reuniting with old yet troubled friends and I am so grateful to have discovered Burke all those years agoSee all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoriablogspotcomYou can follow me on Instagram at

review The New Iberia Blues 103 Detective Dave Robicheaux’s world isn’t filled with too many happy stories but Desmond Cormier’s rags to riches tale is certainly one of them Robicheaux first met Cormier on the streets of New Orleans when the young undersized boy had foolish dreams of becoming a Hollywood directorTwenty five years later when Robicheaux knocks on Cormier’s door it isn’t to congratulate him on his Golden Globe and Academy Award nominati. It has little too much navel gazing for me There s a tarot obsessed serial killer and Smiley is back Creepy tormented little guy but somehow likable I want him to know that I m his friend

review The New Iberia Blues 103 Ons Robicheaux has discovered the body of a young woman who’s been crucified wearing only a small chain on her ankle She disappeared near Cormier’s Cyrpemort Point estate and Robicheaux along with young deputy Sean McClain are looking for answers Neither Cormier nor his enigmatic actor friend Antoine Butterworth are saying much but Robicheaux knows betterAs always Clete Purcel and Dave’s daughter Alafair have Robicheaux’. SMILEY IS BACK As those of us who have followed the Robicheaux novels know whenever Smiley appears bloodshed occurs One of the creepiest original multifaceted characters in fiction it is so much better if he considers you his friend Or if you re a child he loves children and ice creamFor that matter Dave himself is a complicated character A man who as s police officer has seen the worst of humanity but who is also loyal protective and at times noble He carries his past around like a ball and chain in fact at times he actually can see or believes he can see people from the past One never reads these novels expecting a straight line that goes from A to B No these novels like Dave s thoughts take many twists turns and side roads as the reader is a sounding board for many of his ruminations I wondered if human nature and our susceptibility to evil would ever change or if we would continue in our war against the earth until we disolved all our landmass and our structures and ourselves and returned the planet to the watery blue orb it once wasNow I haven t told you much about this particular storys plot and I don t intend to reveal much There are bad people dead bodies tarot cards a man convicted wrongly of arson prostitutes bad cops on the take and a few mafia guys thrown in Yetit all pulls together in one way or another In fact I can t or won t ever rate a novel this author writes anything less than four stars I am too in awe of his talent So this is without apology a very biased review
