Creole Belle by James Lee Burke
It's a Dave Robicheaux story with a lot of preaching. Not my favorite dish. I understand the post-Katrina anger. I have lived it. Between Ivan and Katrina, I was knocked out of my house for eighteen months.
It carries a practical lesson for my work in progress which is set at the time of the BP oil spill and the anger overflowing at that time. A little bit of anger goes a long way. The reader of my novel is coming to find escape and pleasure. Not an angry diatribe.
