Another Kind of Eden by James Lee Burke @JamesLeeBurke @SimonBooks @netgalley #crimefiction #bookreview

Susanne’s Review: It’s a Showdown of Good v Evil and it’s Dark, Lyrical, and Hard-Fought! I’ve always wanted to read James Lee Burke’s novel and with “Another Kind of Eden,” I got the chance to do exactly that and I took it!  A slow burner from the start, it’s the characters here that seep deepContinue reading “Another Kind of Eden by James Lee Burke @JamesLeeBurke @SimonBooks @netgalley #crimefiction #bookreview”
