Review

"Hats off to the Library of Congress cataloger who applied the subject heading 'Good and Evil' to Burke's latest Dave Robicheaux novel. In that simple tag lies the core of this acclaimed series. . . . Occasionally the evil comes in a more chilling, vaguely supernatural form--depravity beyond sociology--giving these novels a darker, more mythic tone . . . but it works, enveloping the reader in the visceral terror of the moment."

"I long ago exhausted my skimpy store of superlatives on James Lee Burke's exquisite prose and moving plots. . . . Once again, Burke takes us to the best and worst of worlds."--Margaret Cannon "Globe and Mail (Canada) "

"["Light of the World"] is vintage Burke: a killer plot, flawed but decent heroes, loathsome villains, a keen sense of history and philosophy and prose that leaves the reader in awe. . . . At once lovely and lethal, "Light of the World" shimmers with Burke's ability to depict the best and the worst of the human family, and to do so with a steady eye and a generous heart."--Jay Strafford "Richmond Times-Dispatch "
