Review

"This book, with its larger than life characters, is a grand adventure, a sweeping love story and a tale of youth recollected in relative tranquility—its noirish reality tinged with a rosy glow, part of which comes from spilled blood."—The Wall Street Journal

“James Lee Burke is the reigning champ of nostalgia noir.”The New York Times Book Review

"A gorgeous prose stylist."—Stephen King

"What brings the myth laden story to life is Burke's lyrical prose and his ability to use description to mirror emotion. That and what is perhaps the best last paragrapgh in this author's landmark career."—Booklist, Starred Review

“Burke's gritty coming of age tale is a typically entertaining read that may cap a trilogy but also begs for a sequel.”Kirkus

"Burke's writing [is] Faulkner esque in its beauty, its feel on the ear like a southern breeze blowing through magnolia blossoms and oil fields."Missoulian

“For five decades, Burke has created memorable novels that weave exquisite language, unforgettable characters, and social commentary into written tapestries that mirror the contemporary scene. His work transcends genre classification.”Philadelphia Inquirer
