Mystery & Suspense • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1989

Dave Robicheaux is a former police officer from New Orleans. He is also a Vietnam veteran and recovering alcoholic whose wife has been brutally slain. This man already has lots of problems before he's arrested for the murder of a local gangster. Caring for a little girl is all that keeps him sane. She lovingly calls him "Daaaave," using the Cajun accent of the hired help. Mark Hammer reads Robicheaux with a thick, cloudy voice which conveys Southern Louisiana anger and alcoholism. Other characters are not read as well. Though Robicheaux narrates, voice distinction is sometimes a problem. Despite this and some variation in voice levels from tape to tape, the richness of the story captures the listener. D.W.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 93]
