James Lee Burke

James Lee Burke is an acclaimed American crime writer, best known for his Dave Robicheaux novels.

Born in Texas and brought up on the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast, Burke wrote his debut novel, Half of Paradise, in 1965. After penning a further two novels he hit a wall of rejection letters from publishers for The Lost Get-Back Boogie and remained out of print for thirteen years. When the book was eventually published it was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

Burke’s most successful series is that featuring maverick Louisiana sheriff’s deputy, Detective Dave Robicheaux. Robicheaux’s first outing, The Neon Rain, was published in 1987 and he has since appeared in over twenty books.

The twenty-third Dave Robicheaux novel puts a distinctive southern noir spin on Romeo and Juliet as the star-crossed heirs of Louisiana’s biggest crime dynasties run away together. Muscular, visceral and yet shaded with a battered romanticism, A Private Cathedral pitches Robicheaux into his toughest case yet.
