But it is when Buford LaRose - scion of an old Southern family and author of a book on the Crown case - is elected governor that Dave Robicheaux's involvement with Aaron Crown deepens to a level he can barely fathom. And it is Buford's social-climbing wife, Karyn, with whom Robicheaux had an affair years before, who proves to be his most poisonous adversary.
Filled with thrilling adventure, lightning-paced action, and street smart realism, Cadillac Jukebox is a brilliant addition to Burke's standout Dave Robicheaux series.

Good, But Not Burke's Best
In "Wolfgang" the Emperor criticizes a Mozart performance, "Too many notes!"
In this book Dave Robicheaux's challenged with too much plot, or too many characters. Most readers don't study, they read. Well, maybe study's a subset of reading, but so's entertainment. Burke demands more of the reader than usual this time… and those demands aren't of the intellectual or emotional sort, just memory. Since I listen to books in disjointed segments,well, this time it was hard to access all the character details and their relationships that Burke requests.
I like to work out puzzles, ideas, and emotions. But Im bored, bordering on irritated, when an author's complexity is created by the cast… Dunno, like a song with too many notes? As a Mark Hammer fanboy, and a committed Burke fan, well this was still worth the effort, but it was the wrong sort of effort.

A tougher listen...
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I love this series but I'm struggling to get through this one. Just not happy with the narration. Think if Patton had narrated this one it'd be a great as the rest.
How could the performance have been better?
I'm not feeling the characters on this one...
