This book served as my introduction to the Dave Robicheaux series, and it didn't disappoint! The atmosphere and colorful characters was good, but what I liked best was one of the most evil, sadistic and realistic literary villains I've yet come across in a mystery novel. The fear that this character instills in all of the good characters is what drives this book onward, and I didn't want to put it down until the end.

I loved this book! It, along with "In the Electric Mist" are two of my favorites! Tough writing, with characters named Clete, Buchalter, and Robicheaux (what more do you need?) this was a fast-paced novel with excellent plot and development. Also like the dialect--easy to understand and not too much of it. Want a good read and a good mystery along with good writing? This is it.
Also recommended: Bark of the Dogwood and Cold Mountain

What a wonderful read this suspense, thriller and murder mystery was. I really hated to stop the story to eat or to sleep. Dave Robicheau is magnificant in his role as city policeman and hiis assistant Cleat Purcell keep the mystery rolling along. New Orleans, La. was shown to hold as much spice as any can of red hot chiles.

As a rabid fan of James Ellroy, I find myself comparing other authors in his genre to the Demon Dog. I heard good things about Burke, and picked this book up.
While certainly not a bad book, it didn't live up to the hype for me. The dialogue seemed unnatural, and the characters seemed extremely one-dimensional. The whole book seemed like an amalgamation of other authors, and didn't really find it's own. I was entertained, but I can't see myself running out to get any more stuff by Burke.

This is my seventh Robicheaux book and I think it may b thebest one yet. Dave is his usual, hard as nails, self. Sometimes I would like to slap his buddy Clete myself. He stays in trouble of his own making. Yes, I think I would have pulled the trigger on Will Buchalter. The things he does to Dave and his family will make you want to do the same. Burke is great with his use of the language and description of the country. He makes you feel like you are there. Lots of good characters in this one. Good mystery and lots of action. Can Robicheaux save Clete, what does the German sub have that several people want? A good read.

My first James Lee Burke novel and I wasn't impressed. I heard much about him so I decided to read one of his most beloved mysteries. Dixie City Jam. Hmm. If he's one of the finest of the mystery writer's breed, I guess I don't understand the genre.
The story itself is fine. Dave Robicheaux, a good-guy detective and loving hubby, battles neo-Nazis, mobsters and his impulsive/assinine best friend.
The central story line involves a sunken WWII German submarine that Dave has spotted off the New Orleans coast a few times in his life. Will Buchalter, neo-Nazi and wacko, covets that sub. It will mean much to the cause of tyranny and white supremacy around the world, apparently. So Buchalter goes after Dave hoping he's a sporty guy by telling him where the entombed hero's of yesteryear lie. A couple of encounters, threats, intimidation fill the novel, then ultimatly, climax/resolution.
Meanwhile, Dave's brain dead best friend, Clete Purcel, is stirring up a hornet's nest of trouble with the local mobsters. I swear, Clete has A.D.D. Never thinks through a problem, just reacts. He then writes off potential dangerous ramafications for his bone-headed, destructive behavior with a lazy eyed, "Aww, this'll pass over." Dave to the rescue. He's the greatest.
Burke's insistence on discribing the infinite smells, colors, and textures in every scene in this book had me rolling my eyes. The sky was this color, the ocean was that color, over and over. I'd sometimes scream at Dave Robicheaux in my head, "Just walk to your damn car and get into town!" Too much, and not done skillfully. Whenever the texure of a scene was filled in, the momentum died completely. Burke made a torture scene boring!
His characters are all one dimentional. I didn't believe any of them.
