Publisher's Summary

Called "America's best novelist" by the Denver Post, James Lee Burke is well known for his award-winning Dave Robicheaux series. In this enthralling departure, Burke weaves the tale of Iry Paret.
Released from prison after two years for manslaughter, Iry heads to Montana for a fresh start on a ranch owned by a prison buddy's father. He also hopes to nail down a song he's been working on, unable to get quite right. But soon new troubles bring tragic consequences, and it will take a lot more than a soulful tune to ease the pain.

A bit lost

Burke is my favorite author and Will Patton my favorite narrator so when they combine I buy immediately. This is a good story and Burke is a teller of tales so I did enjoy this book. I did not like the main character very much though and did not agree with his lifestyle although I myself drink a bit and used to smoke. I do not believe this to be Burke's best work so I gave it four stars and he usually gets five from me. It is still worth the credit and Burke's prose read by Will Patton makes it worthwhile.

Bought all Burkes's Audiobooks- Wish Not this one

I always snap up his books as soon as available. This one drags and drones, wallows and weeps without any relief forever. I had to stop and switch to something else while on a long trip because my pocket knife was within reach and I was afraid I might cut my throat. We need Clete and Dave Robicheaux to partner again in his next release; to wash the taste of this one away.
