I got a couple of questions answered. I was close: it's a person who is a mixture of Black, Indian, and French.
The man has worked for Dave's family since he was a child, we know that. But is this just more Southern white paternalism? Is Batist the modern version of a sharecropper, working for nothing but the right to live in a really cheap, small, below-code house but unable to move anywhere else?
We know he is illiterate, but that lends more credence to the notion that maybe Dave is exploiting him in the same way so many Southern white folks do, without realizing there is racism inherent in their intention, and even thinking they are doing their employee a favor.
It's fiction, of course. But Burke creates such real characters that I feel I know them, and once that is true and a character continues to pop up--especially a likable one such as Batist, who delivers the kind of home truths a father might--I need to know.
Apparently Burke either realized he needed to address this, or had it pointed out to him, because here he makes it clear: Batist owns his own home and his own little truck farm; it was left to him by a previous employer who has died.
My own grandfather was one of them. Glad to have all this cleared up! If you like a good mystery, crime thriller, or just plain good fiction, you'll do the same.
The New Orleans mob or the Dixie Mafia, and possibly both, will prove to be involved in some nefarious and deadly goings-on in New Iberia Parish, where Dave lives and works.
At least one hitman will make multiple attempts to kill Dave or someone close to him. A diverse array of characters will wander in and out of the tale, including ex-convicts, both Black and white, New Orleans mobsters with colorful names, a wealthy and powerful white family, a lesbian deputy sheriff, and perhaps an FBI or DEA agent.
And a tragic event many years in the past will be revealed to lie at the heart of a tangle of mysteries now bedeviling Dave.
Now, you might think a formulaic approach like this would quickly grow stale. But the Dave Robicheaux series is anything but stale and predictable.
The dialogue is lively and inventive. In Sunset Limited, the tenth novel in the Dave Robicheaux series, the long-ago event that centers the story is the crucifixion of Jack Flynn, a radical labor organizer, forty years in the past.
Cisco has come to produce a film on site in New Iberia with a famous director and a high-priced cast. Unfortunately, the director is nasty and thoroughly unscrupulous, and the Hong Kong Triads are financing the film.
And there is a connection between Broussard and the film that will not be revealed until much later. For Dave, the mystery that is causing him to lose sleep involves that forty-year-old crucifixion.
Three men were responsible, and he wants to know who they are. James Lee Burke is one of my favorite writers—in any genre.
Burkes's writing is as luminescent as always but reading a Robicheaux adventure from twenty years ago leaves me not so enamored of the younger Dave.
One character calls him "you self-righteous sonofabitch," with which I concur. Another says,"But the rest of your routine is comedy. A guy with your brains ought to be above it.
Ironically, he's a helicop Burkes's writing is as luminescent as always but reading a Robicheaux adventure from twenty years ago leaves me not so enamored of the younger Dave.
Ironically, he's a helicopter busybody in Purcell's personal life. In this book, Robicheaux is like a Calvinist preacher except his Bible is all in his head.
And nothing really good comes from all this. Typical entry in the Robicheaux series with the usual atmospheric writing and sins from the past plot.
Listened to the audio version which was narrated by Mark Hammer. The ending of this tale is rather ambiguous for Burke, and lacked the kind of super-dramatic climax that features some kind of brutal heroism by Clete Purcel that one sees in some of his other novels.
Don't get me wrong, Clete's here all right, and there is plenty of brutality and gore, including two crucifixions and some other stuff I won't ruin for you fans out there.

I thought the character of Cool Breeze Broussard just gets lost along the way in the story line which increasingly focuses on the characters of Archer Terrebonne and Megan Flynn, and the antagonism between wealth and tradition, on the one hand, and idealistic populism, on the other.
The glue that holds this all together is a film in the process of being shot, and the shadowy presence of a mentioned but never explicitly seen Hong Kong Mafia presence.
In the end it seemed like Burke started off intending to tell one story, but veered off about a third of the way through to focus on something different.
Still, hugely entertaining stuff, like all of his books I've read, and I keep hoping and waiting for someone to make a film or series out of his work: I'd love to see who gets cast as Dave and Clete.
I'm about half way through the Robicheaux novels, and beginning to experience burnout. It's frustrating, because this series is very literate crime fiction with a great sense of place, and priceless dialogue between well defined characters.
The problem is the plots are often so similar that I'm struggling to differentiate the books. The pervasive themes of troubled Southern history, class and race clashes and battling personal demons are ever-present.
And there always seems to be someone from Da I'm about half way through the Robicheaux novels, and beginning to experience burnout.
And there always seems to be someone from Dave's past that returns to New Iberia to stir up the pot and tie two basic plot lines together.
All this would be fine if the central characters evolved along the way, but lately I feel like I'm reading the same book over again, but the bad guys just have new names.
Clearly Burke has found a winning formula, but it's starting to feel like he's in a rut. James Lee Burke is my all time favorite author.
So, being incredibly biased, it's hard to give an objective review. Every one of his books seem to weave an amazing dance between lyrical prose, complex characters that are so real in my mind I can SMELL them, would recognize them if I saw them on the street - and plots that keep me caring till the very last page.
The man has a gift, there is no question about it. It's obvious he has honed his craft well by putting in the WORK of writing, not just to sell books but to give us a gift of insight into human pride, frailty and pathos all wrapped up in some of the most amazing language I've ever encountered.
Typical Burke, but this one irritated me a bit. James Lee Burke is a master. Dave Robicheauux is my favorite if Burke's protagonists. Yet only 4 stars?
Reading this book reminded me that Burke's formula, which I enjoy greatly, is still formulaic. Poor folks mistreated.
Rich folks taking advantage of their good fortune. Dave acting impulsively trying to tip the scales of justice.
Clete shacking up with the female lead only to have her drift away. Lousiana's beauty and horror eloquently portrayed. Hits the spot, yet sometimes I want this masterfu James Lee Burke is a master.
Hits the spot, yet sometimes I want this masterful writer to dazzle me with a new story. I'm tired but wanted to comment before a nice nap.
Simply another solid Robicheaux mystery. Burke's books are always much more than just mysteries. Great characterization and descriptive scenes that put the read right in the middle of the setting Burke chooses to create.
Another winner from James Lee Burke. A surfeit of mysteries past and present and a cadre of shady, nefarious individuals confront Louisiana Detective, former alcoholic and Vietnam veteran Dave Robicheaux.
The loose and muddled crime scenarios never really cohere and the rogues' gallery gets more and more populated as you turn the pages.
Some of these malefactors include: an Argentine "midget" who tortures his victims by chewing their genitalia, a French Canadian hit man, an entitled and crooked 'Big Daddy Pollitt'-type plantation A surfeit of mysteries past and present and a cadre of shady, nefarious individuals confront Louisiana Detective, former alcoholic and Vietnam veteran Dave Robicheaux.
Some of these malefactors include: an Argentine "midget" who tortures his victims by chewing their genitalia, a French Canadian hit man, an entitled and crooked 'Big Daddy Pollitt'-type plantation patriarch, a disgraced prison warden, a mafioso, a "mainline recidivist": yes, Dave definitely has his hands full.
Most of the events in the novel seem to revolve around the unsolved forty-year old murder of one Jack Flynn. But there is also the execution-style killing of two white trash rapists, the dubious suicide of a black woman, Mafia-owned stolen VCRs and videotapes, among other entanglements.
This is a narrative that splinters in a dozen directions. Burke does keep the Biblical-style fulminating on human perfidy to a minimum in this entry, but Jack Flynn is presented as a radical agitator and would-be union organizer.
He is found scourged and crucified to a barn door. A blood-soaked towel used to wrap his face even preserves his countenance, so Burke does not completely dispense with the scriptural.
Not a bad story but a disappointing one from this author. View all 3 comments. Shelves: 20th-century , north-america , gothic , murder-and-mayhem.
There is nothing better than a really good mystery. The one where you smirk at the good one liners, are glued to the small details, trying to piece the events together.
For me a really good mystery is not really about the crime, but about the events, the place and the characters trying to determine right from wrong in a place where the rules and shades of gray keep shifting.
And this is just my first James Lee Burke novel, and certainly not the last. Ok there were a There is nothing better than a really good mystery.
Ok there were a couple of places where things didn't quiet gel, or where Burke was trying to fit a piece of puzzle in a place it did not quite fit.
But everything else was great. Burke is a stunning writer, something you do not find every day in the Mystery Genre. Set in Louisiana gave this novel some real texture.
The novel is incredibly fast paste but with a gentle slowness only the south can provide. More often than not the action will unfold in front of you like a carpet falling down stairs in slow motion.
What is this particular novel about? Other than gilded movie sets and big plantation houses, it is more about broken promises, false dreams, and old hurts that can never be really resolved because they are too ingrained within human nature.
Quite a deep mystery thriller actually. The Robicheaux books are set in Southern Louisiana. His paints the atmosphere so well you can almost smell the gumbo cooking in the background.
His books also touch on the mystique and aura that is found in Cajun Country. Burke's protagonists all have serious character flaws, although Robicheaux's flaws don't come out as much in this book as they do in others of the series.
But these flaws enhance the reader's ability to relate to the characters as actual humans. Plus, they make the underlying goodness of the character stand out.
Burke writes beautifully. It's literature dressed as a detective story. But he's also not afraid to write about humans committing extreme acts of violence on each other with the same beautiful structure.
Jul 19, Scott Rhee rated it it was amazing Shelves: mystery , southern , series-detective. James Lee Burke is a truly gifted literary writer who just happens to be writing in a genre that doesn't often get recognized for great writing.
I have read nearly all of the Dave Robicheaux novels, and they are all excellent. This one, "Sunset Limited", was the first one I ever read by him, but it is much later in the series, recommended to me by Jonis Agee an excellent published author, too.
New Orleans and Louisiana have never been this hot This was good and had quite a bit of violence in it. I love Helen though, as she says some pretty good things to the bad guys.
This had to do with someone being strung up on a barn like a man on a cross. It was many years before, but the kids came back to New Iberia.
Sep 07, Jeff Dickison rated it really liked it. I didn't give it 5 stars because of the ending which just kind of stops.
Sunset Limited I just finished rereading this book. I read this maybe 15 years ago and I knew I liked it but I thoroughly enjoyed rereading it.
I think this book is my favorite in this series so far. I can't wait to continue reading all of them! Another fine robicheaux novel, taking us to different parts of his life.
I could see parts of this story really happening for that time. One of Burke's strong earlier books where we get a sense of Dave Robicheaux's background and a greater understanding of how the relationship between his parents formed his character.
Back in the day I randomly picked up Black Cherry Blues 3 in the series because I loved the title and the cover and I loved the book.
I then read the first two in the series and a couple after that until all the stories started sounding the same and it seemed like the plot was added just to fill in the spaces between the ridiculously gratuitous violence.
Burke writes like an angel, but unfor This is the tenth book in the Dave Robicheaux series and the first I've read James Lee Burke in years.
Burke writes like an angel, but unfortunately, I lost interest in the storiesand moved on. Recently I unearthed this one in a pile of books on my nightstand - can't remember where I came into possession of it - and with nothing else on hand to read, I gave it a whirl.
It's a good book and it's fun to reacquaint myself with Dave and Clete and New Iberia, but the plot was way too convoluted with way too many characters, story lines, and murders.
Hard as I tried to keep the strands from tangling, eventually I just gave it up and rode it through to the end.
Probably not. I found saloons by the water, always by the water, where I could trap and control light and all meaning inside three inches of Beam, with a Jax on the side, while the rain ran down the windows and rippled the walls with neon shadows that had no color.
Now, Annie and my father and dead soldiers no longer called me up on the phone. But I never underestimated the power of the rain or the potential "He and my murdered wife Annie and the dead men from my platoon used to speak to me through the rain.
But I never underestimated the power of the rain or the potential of the dead, or denied them their presence in the world.
And this book reads better than the last one. But overall, it's loaded down with too many characters, too many murders. The web gets spun a little too tight.
It resolves itself well in the end they don't always , but I find myself wishing he could give Dave a break for a minute - send him off to another place as he did in one of the earlier novels.
And I still love seeing Clete and being at the bait shop and all the other things that make these books so great.
Perhaps its just diminished returns to be expected with a series this long. If they stay about this good, I'll keep reading. I had never read anything by James Lee Burke before.
After this I'm sure I'll read more. I almost gave this four stars but during the way there started to be little things which slightly deteriorated my original opinion.
But all and all this was quite a satisfying reading experience on "Just read and don't think too much" level.
Fast to read. Rough and violent as I had expected. Crime novels tend to be nowadays. A mad serial killer was missing though, points for that.
The cajun scene was interestin I had never read anything by James Lee Burke before. The cajun scene was interesting although I wonder if in Louisiana there really are dark clouds and thunderstorms almost every day and the sun is always red as blood when visible.
Never been there so I can't say. But I doubt a bit. And finally a message to the Finnish translator: Truck doesn't translate as trukki and sediment isn't the same as cement.
Varjojen maa LIKE I didn't enjoy this one as much as the other Dave Robicheaux novels I've read, but that was probably my fault.
I listened to the audio book version and wasn't paying close attention in the early part of the novel to keep all the characters straight.
Go back and listen to it again, you suggest? I just plowed on. However, I still found the novel enjoyable for the reasons I've mentioned in my previous reviews.
By the way, I highly recommend listing to the audio version of the book or any aud I didn't enjoy this one as much as the other Dave Robicheaux novels I've read, but that was probably my fault.
The screenplay was written by Cormac McCarthy , based on his play of the same name. The film is about the relationship between a black man with a positive view of life and a white man with a very negative view.
The film received mainly positively reviews, mainly for the performances of Lee and Jackson, Lee's direction and screenplay. Black and White converse about White's attempted suicide.
White feels as though everything ends up in death, and that his life is minuscule in the throes of time. From White's point of view, no matter how great someone or something is, all that is created eventually fades away.
This is the opposite of what Black believes. He believes that there is a God and that we all must go through the troubles of life to get to paradise Heaven.
By his own account, his story is that of a man who has committed murder and was far away from God, but has now changed. Black feels that he can dissuade White from committing suicide.
With Black stopping White right before he was about to kill himself, Black feels that this is destiny. In the end, Black is not able to dissuade White from suicide; he lets him leave the apartment.
When White leaves, Black is left pondering why God would put him in a position to save this man's life knowing that there is nothing that he can do to stop White from going through with the suicide.
The film received generally favorable reviews. The film holds a out-of score on review aggregation website Metacritic , based on 15 reviews.
Among those who praised the film are Verne Gay of Newsday , who called it "grim, but a chance to see two magnificent actors at the peak of their powers.
