Publisher's Summary

The forty-year-old crucifixion of a prominent labor leader named Jack Flynn remains an unsolved atrocity that has never been forgotten in New Iberia, Louisiana. When Flynn's daughter Megan, a photojournalist drawn to controversial subjects, returns to the site of her father's murder, it quickly becomes clear that her family's bloodstained past will not stay buried. Megan gives her old friend Dave Robicheaux a tip about a small-time criminal named Cool Breeze Broussard, scarcely suspecting that the seemingly innocuous case will lead Robicheaux and his partner into the midst of deadly conspiracy. Combining brilliant prose, crackling suspense, and an exquisite sense of character and place, Sunset Limited is a wrenching tale of historic violence and soiled redemption that reveals America's finest novelist at his masterful best.

The Abridged version is best!

I listened to this book in both the unabridged and the abridged form. The unabridged version was just too long and too slow. Normally, I prefer unabridged listening but in this case the abridged version was MUCH better. Will Patton reads the abridged production. He captures the flavor and the mood of the story perfectly. All the really good lines, similes and metaphors that make Burke's books so mesmerizing remain but the story plot moves along at a much more intense and crisper pace.
