New Iberia Blues is another great southern police procedural from James Lee Burke.
The crucifixion death of a woman leads Detective Dave Robicheaux to a Hollywood director in town to make a movie. What follows is a slam-bam thriller.
While New Iberia Blues is not the best book in the series, the author is such a skilled writer that it is still better than many books out there. This is book 22 but surprisingly can be read as a standalone though I recommend reading a least a couple of the older books to get some background on Dave. This book rates 4 stars!
Thanks to Simon & Schuster for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
