Vintage Burke

On the face of it the story seem rather bare until you realize that you have listened non stop with very few book marks. For those not familiar with him, James Lee Burke is a stunning writer and his audiobooks, regardless of the narrator, are amongst the best that audible has to offer. If you like crime and low life novels all of his books are recommended
