THE NEW IBERIA BLUES Dave Robicheaux, Book 22

by | Read by Will Patton

Mystery & Suspense • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Listening to Burke’s Robicheaux series means walking into the dark, damp swamps of New Iberia, Louisiana, and the pain-ridden, tortured swamps of Robicheaux’s mind. Narrator Will Patton’s portrayal of the detective snares the listener in the rich descriptions and philosophizing woven through the action. Patton’s rendition of Smiley Wimple, the psychotic, childlike murderer on a mission, is creepily on target. His voice for Robicheaux’s friend Clete Purcell, however, is pinched and seems wrong for this big, generous hero. This audiobook is a continuation of Burke’s series featuring Robicheaux. There is sufficient backstory, however, so the new listener can follow the narrative. Listeners will be kept thoroughly engaged as they view time, death, and good and evil through Robicheaux’s fractured prism.
