The New Iberia Blues

The New Iberia Blues by James Lee Burke has Dave Robicheaux, best friend Clete and daughter Alafair working to identify a creepy serial killer while life is disrupted by a large group of Hollywood types in town for a film shoot. Burke is 82 years old and you definitely get the sense this could be the swan song for this series. Bodies appear and suspects multiply. The character development is excellent and Dave’s musings on the larger questions of life and death continue to be the glue that has made this series so special.
