FREE READ Jolie Blon's Bounce î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Berate over the top embodiment of absolute evil is one of Burke's most remarkable creations His presence together with the corollary presence of a mad possibly angelic figure known as Sal Angelo lends this novel the faint unmistakable aura of the supernatural that has characterized so much of Burke's recent fictionAs always though it is Dave Robicheaux himself a decent violent angry loving and deeply conflicted man who dominates the narrative Robicheaux's distinctive character and his voice with its mournful power its clean rolling cadences and its freuent flights of unforced poetry elevate this novel at every turn Like the best of its predecessors The Neon Rain A Morning for Flamingos Purple Cane Road Jolie Blon's Bounce is bruising moving and beautifully composed an example of American crime fiction at its best and most highly evolved Bill Sheeh. Burke s books carry an undeniable sense of deja vu in terms of plotting and I had overlooked it before but Jolie Blon s Bounce feels like a retread than any other book that came before it A series of brutal rapes and murders has an obvious suspect in the form of a young black man Tee Bobby Hulin and less obvious ones in form of hellish Legion Gundry and mysterious bible salesman Marvin Oates It is just the starting point of a sprawling narrative The plot like all Burke books is a mishmash of disjointed fragments for the first ninety percent of the book till the last ten percent expertly reels in the denouements to complete a puzzle that fits perfectlyThe usual characters of any Robicheaux novels are present the tragic young black man Tee Bobby Hulin forever carrying his skin color as stigmata the scion to old white money Perry Lasalle whose politeness is a facade an antagonist Legion Gundry who is eual parts insidious and dangerous I am not going to repeat myself singing the praises of the writing and dialogue I have done it numerous times before and suffice to say they remain top notch I will rather concentrate on what makes the book feel much mediocre compared to other entries in the seriesRobicheaux was at his best place psychologically in books 9 and 10 though as a character he was at his best at the start of the series raw alone and fallible and Burke ever since then is focused on bringing his world crashing down It was done organically in Purple Cane Road and Jolie Blon s Bounce s device to send him spiraling down further is uestionable at best Robicheaux while investigating the murders run afoul of Legion who is protecting ancient secrets of his own Legion gives him a brutal beating a manhandling that makes Robicheaux feel almost sexually violated Robicheaux is tempted to revisit booze the series had always afforded Robicheaux s sobriety the utmost respect and had not used it as a cheap storytelling device It breaks that trend here but because Burke has used it so sparingly till now I did not mind itHowever what I did mind is the path Burke takes to ensure Robicheaux reaches the tipping point This series has seen some great villains Julie Balboni in In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead and Jim Gable in Purple Cane Road and they are at their most menacing when there is a veneer of civility to go with their obvious depravity Legion does not possess that he is a seventy four year old man with no ties to organized crime and whose address is known to Robicheaux I just did not buy his threats Robicheaux had faced much worse even of the psychotic variety in Dixie City Jam and not been so vulnerable To sell Legion s threat Burke leans heavily on magical realism Robicheaux and other characters consider him some form of demon I hate magical realism in my crime stories and to further the motif of good vs evil Robicheaux is even saddled with a mysterious guardian angel at the novel s climax Another thing I did mind was Clete finding true love for the third time in last three novels and getting his heart broken every time I don t mind overall tonal repetitions in plot but the same exact sub plot 33 times is too muchRobicheaux books work much better when the man himself is not the victim of the violence It really affects the realism because that well is running dry at this point Read Cadillac Jukebox or Sunset Limited to get my point They also work better when the mystical realism is not a plot contrivance but of the subtle way point for the characters Think Black Cherry Blues those issues mean it ends up being an above average crime thriller but a below average installment to Robicheaux canon Rating 35 Poesía reunida unmistakable aura of the supernatural that has characterized so much of Burke's recent fictionAs always though it is Dave Robicheaux himself a decent violent angry loving and deeply conflicted man who dominates the narrative Robicheaux's distinctive character and his voice with its mournful power its clean rolling cadences and its freuent flights of Historia De La Argentina Deseada Ensayo unforced poetry elevate this novel at every turn Like the best of its predecessors The Neon Rain A Morning for Flamingos Purple Cane Road Jolie Blon's Bounce is bruising moving and beautifully composed an example of American crime fiction at its best and most highly evolved Bill Sheeh.
