Creole Belle by James Lee Burke

Today I read 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.
