Publisher's Summary

The forty-year-old crucifixion of a prominent labor leader named Jack Flynn remains an unsolved atrocity that has never been forgotten in New Iberia, Louisiana. When Flynn's daughter Megan, a photojournalist drawn to controversial subjects, returns to the site of her father's murder, it quickly becomes clear that her family's bloodstained past will not stay buried. Megan gives her old friend Dave Robicheaux a tip about a small-time criminal named Cool Breeze Broussard, scarcely suspecting that the seemingly innocuous case will lead Robicheaux and his partner into the midst of deadly conspiracy. Combining brilliant prose, crackling suspense, and an exquisite sense of character and place, Sunset Limited is a wrenching tale of historic violence and soiled redemption that reveals America's finest novelist at his masterful best.

Very good, but...

this is the first and last abridged book I get. The story starts like it hasn't been introduced properly, and let's be honest, abridged books aren't how the authors wrote them - they're a third party's idea of taking a book, hacking a third of the content out, and selling it as a quick listen. I would give the unabridged version either 4 or 5 stars.



Can't fault James Lee Burke though, and the narration is spot on. Rich descriptions and circumstances made for a riveting read.
