Publisher's Summary

Cajun police detective Dave Robicheaux knows the Sonnier family of New Iberia -- their connections to the CIA, the mob, and to a former Klansman now running for state office. And he knows their past - as dark and murky as a night on the Louisiana bayou.
An assassination attempt and the death of a cop draw Robicheaux into the Sonniers' dangerous web of madness, murder and incest. But Robicheaux has devils of his own. And they've come out of hiding to destroy the tormented investigator - and the people he holds most dear.
Filled with the usual Burke combination of brilliant action and a stunning novelistic theme, A Stained White Radiance will keep Burke's fans riveted -- and win him many new ones.

Abridgements should be banned!

What would have made A Stained White Radiance better?

An unabridged performance.

If you’ve listened to books by James Lee Burke before, how does this one compare?

Hard to tell because it is abridged - and badly abridged as well.

What about Will Patton’s performance did you like?

I like the voice he give to Robicheaux...

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Stained White Radiance?

Too much has already been cut! The story line is hard to follow in many places because of clumsy abridgment.

Any additional comments?

Skillful abridgment should leave the plot intact and characters fully formed. This abridgment does not accomplish that feat.
