Picks and Pans Review: The Convict
by James Lee Burke
Burke is best known for his lavishly written Dave Robicheaux series about an ex-New Orleans detective who now tends a bayou bait shop—when not wrestling with Mob kingpins and his own nightmares about Vietnam. This six-pack of pre-Robicheaux works—Two for Texas, Half Paradise, etc.—shows Burke in the process of finding his mature style and is itself a find. (Hyperion, $10.95 each)
