Last Car To Elysian Fields SIGNED

JAMES LEE BURKE. LAST CAR TO ELYSIAN FIELDS - FIRST HARD COVER - SIGNED.

NY: Simon & Schuster, 2003. First Edition. 6 X 9. Hard Cover. Remainder. Signed by Author. Fine / Very Good. ISBN: 0743245423 . This harcover comes with an acid-free bookcover. Overview: Homicide detective Dave Robicheaux is pitted against a handsome, urbane war hero of a bad guy instead of the typical obscenely grotesque villain in this latest installment of Burkes stellar series, set in New Iberia, La. Its a shift in adversaries that forces Robicheaux to take a different tack than his usual uncontrolled tilting at the windmills of elusive justice. As in many of Burkes novels (A Stained White Radiance; In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead), current felonies are tied to a crime from the past. Here, Daves friend Father Jimmie Dolan is being stalked by Irish hit man Max Coll; linked to this intrigue is the story of blues singer Junior Crudup, who entered the hell of Angola Penitentiary in the 1950s and was never heard from again. In present-day New Orleans, three teens die in a fiery crash after buying drinks at a drive-by daiquiri stand. Porn star Gunner Ardoin takes a beating from Daves sidekick, Clete Purcel, who wreaks his usual havoc. Mysterious lady cop Clotile Arceneaux keeps popping in with advice, and a minor thug, Jumpin Merchie Flannigan, is married to Robicheauxs old girlfriend Theodosha. These are just a scant few of the characters and subplots that thicken the deep and complex gumbo of Burkes story. The writing is beautiful, as always, laced with the authors signature descriptions: the sepia-tinted light in the trees and on the bayou seemed to emanate from the earth rather than the sky. This is an outstanding entry in an excellent series. --Publishers Weekly. 335 pp.
