James Lee Burke

Readers' Pick

“Extremely popular.” That’s how Fact & Fiction owner Barbara Theroux describes any book by James Lee Burke. In fact, she says he’s been all the buzz around the store this summer in anticipation of his next novel, The Glass Rainbow, due out in July. Customers regularly grill Theroux about when the famed mystery author’s next novel is due out, or when he’ll have his next signing (July 13). And why shouldn’t they? Dave Robicheaux is one hell of a character, and Burke’s command of craft leaves nothing to be desired. Plus, as Theroux says, “He’s just an all-around nice guy.”
