If you haven't read anything by James Lee Burke I am both envious and smug at the same time. My favourite writer in any genre by a mile. ( )

Moved right away from this sort of book, after doing too many of them, at some point. Wondered early on if I should have trusted that distance, but glad I didn't. Burke manages to make a happy ending so bleak that it remains moving. And I totally forgive how long it took him to get to the chase.

You either like Burke, in which case this will be to your taste, or you don't. To me he's like Connelly with class. Somebody will be offended by that. Sorry. ( )

Abridged audio book significantly detracts from the book as written.
Not among my favorite burke novels but the book as read is better than this abridged version.
Narration is good as usual. ( )

enjoyable and atmospheric as always, here the forests and backwaters rather than New Orleans and Louisiana. I found the lot a bit muddled though ( )

I am not new to the Dave Robicheaux novels, but it has been a long time since I read one. Burke is one of those authors whose work has gotten a bit too violent and downright gratuitously bloody for me, so I hesitated before I picked this book up. However, I was driving cross country to Montana, and decided that I would give it a try. I found the descriptions of the country wonderful, and to my surprise found this novel to be one in which the good guys were good guys and the bad guys, well bad guys. There were characters who interested me, and made me care about them. In fact there were a whole raft of them, plus many of them started out bad, and then redeemed themselves. In fact I liked them so much that I cheered out loud for them. It was a good thing that I was alone in the car. There wasn't overt descriptions of violent horrible torture and death, but the novel was still edgy. That is a delicate balance for an author to keep and Burke did it well in this novel. In fact, this novel redeemed Burke for me and moved him back into my radar sights as a mystery author that I wouldn't mind reading in the future. What kept this from being an outstanding mystery, with a higher rating, was that the mystery part of the novel was rather mundane. What kept my interest were the wonderful characters and their moral development during the course of the novel. ( )

Swan Peak is a deeply confused book, and so must its author be, realizing–even as he writes on autopilot–that his mouthpiece Robicheaux, occasionally even speaking in first person, is a violent sociopath, immune to human emotion, and totally detached from reality.
 
Despite the story’s length and complexity, Burke’s view of the world is more explicit than ever: noble intentions baffled by long-festering damage from war and alcoholism, and beneath it all the determination of the rich and powerful to keep their perks. ... Like all Dave’s adventures, a tale of violent conflict whose deepest violence boils inside the heroes.

Clete Purcel had heard of people who sleep without dreaming, but either because of the era and neighborhood in which he had grown up, or the later experiences that had come to define his life, he could not think of sleep as anything other than an uncontrolled descent into a basement where the gargoyles turned somersaults like circus midgets.
