Further Information
James Lee Burke, born 1936, was raised in Texas and educated in Southern America. He obtained a masters degree in English. He is best known for his main series character, Dave Robicheaux, a policeman and Vietnam veteran. His other series character is Billy Bob Holland. The books are well written and fast paced in the modern thriller style of writing. The characters are well formed and plotting is solid. They are very 'readable' and hence Burke is one of the world's best selling authors in his genre. The first three books were only published in the USA, they are the rarest and most valuable. In all but one cases, the US editions precede the English. Later titles are relatively easy to locate due to large print runs. He has won numerous awards and was even nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. He currently spreads his time between a huge ranch in Montana and Louisiana .
