JOLIE BLON S BOUNCEI read this book almost ten years ago but recently listened to the unabridged audio book read by actor Will PattonLooking at this book from a writer s viewpoint I must stand in awe of James Lee Burke The plot is complicated and imaginative It s full of allegory and biblical references the average person may not understand I didn t but thanks to main character and narrator Dave Robicheaux you ll get a uick theology lesson improve your knowledge of the bible a little and see the parallel Burke uses to tell a story of among other things good and evil I ve always said James Lee Burke has few euals in his poetic ability to describe people places and events JOLIE BLON S BOUNCE provides him with plenty of ground to do that over and over again and also exercise his talent for getting a reader into the heads of the assorted miscreants and psychos that litter the pages of all his books He always provides you with a good lesson in abnormal psychology as it relates to his charactersAnd I love his characters Whether they re good guys or bad guys they re all train wrecks just waiting to roll over some spot in southern Louisiana I doubt you ll ever forget themWill I enjoy the book you ask Kinda depends on what you like This is NOT a light read This is NOT a cozy mystery What entertains you This IS a dark extremely well written police procedural I generally do not afford a civilian writer much slack with their interpretation of how cops work but Burke does a fine job dealing with the procedures and interpersonal machinations of the Iberia Parish Sheriff s Department Everything is uncomplicated and realistic He also pulls off an authentic representation of an alcoholic and has uncanny success when giving life to the sociopaths and nut jobs that walk through each day Robicheaux is on the job I d highly recommend any of James Lee Burke s books and especially this one 5 stars

James Lee Burke å 1 REVIEW FREE DOWNLOAD Ç YEEZY950.US å James Lee Burke READ Jolie Blon's Bounce The Barnes Noble ReviewJames Lee Burke's fiction is haunted sometimes uite literally by the ghosts of history and by a bone deep apprehension of the human capacity for violence and cruelty A case in point is the author's latest Dave Robicheaux novel Jolie Blon's Bounce a contemporary account of murder and madness whose plot reflects the lingering aftereffects of the antebellum SouthThe story begins with the shotgun murder of 16 year old Amanda Boudreau and the subseuent arrest of Tee Bobby Hulin a musically gifted young black man with a spiraling drug habit and a checkered criminal past This initial murder is uickly followed by a second the bludgeoning death of a prostitute with ties to the world of organized crime The dual investigation that ensues leads Robicheaux together with his current partner Helen Soileau and his former partner in the New. James Lee Burke is probably one of the best authors out there when it comes to ability to describe people places and things He is a master of his craft The reader is transported to the setting of the story In the Dave Robicheaux series this is usually in and around New Iberia and New Orleans in Louisiana You will find yourself in the city tasting the food and listending to the music or on a boat in the bayou His characters are vivid and colorful It is good vs evil and there are reflections of the lingering aftereffects of the antebellum SouthIn Jolie Blon s Bounce the story opens with the brutal rape and murder of Amanda Boudreau a beautiful teenage girl The suspect is Tee Bobby Hulin a young black man who is musically gifted but has a drug addiction and criminal history Soon after there is another murder This time a prostitute whose father Joe Zeroski is a member of organized crime Among the other characters in this story are Legion Guidry an embodiment of absolute evil and Marvin Oates a mysterious Bible salesman who may not be the simple good ole boy that he appears to be Clete Purcell Robicheaux s former partner in the New Orleans PD is in the story and still a train wreck waiting to happen Dave is a recovering alcoholic and still struggles with his addiction In this story he will have to take on painkillers after a severe beating at the hands of Legion Dave must deal with not only the physical beating but the mental beating he puts himself through Legion left him with scars that run deep and threaten his recoveryThis story brings to the forefront the differences between the haves and the have not Blacks are usually poor uneducated and descendants of slaves Then there are the whites who are well to do educated and descendants of plantation owners A haunting reminder of the antebellum South There are other supernatural aspects in this story Legion who appears to be the devil himself or in pact with the devil A homeless man that Dave tries to help out who may or may not have been a medic in Vietnam and saved Dave when he was wounded Like In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead and Dixie City Jam the supernatural is a key undercurrent throughout the story but it does not detract Rather it seems to remind us that sometimes there are forces in play we may not understand
