Synopsis: THE COLLECTION NO CRIME FICTION FAN SHOULD BE WITHOUT -- THE ESSENTIAL SHORT STORIES OF JAMES LEE BURKE
"America's best novelist" ( The Denver Post ), two-time Edgar Award winner James Lee Burke is renowned for his lush, suspense-charged portrayals of the Deep South -- the people, the crime, the hope and despair infused in the bayou landscape. This stunning anthology takes us back to where Burke's heart and soul beat -- the steamy, seamy Gulf Coast -- in complex and fascinating tales that crackle with violence and menace, meshing his flair for gripping storytelling with his urbane writing style.
Product Description: This is a collection of stories set in locales along the Gulf coasts of Louisiana and Texas and on battlefields around the world. These nine stories explore themes familiar to Burke's writings - loss and hard-won courage, betrayal and friendship, violence and heroism and inevitable death.
