In Robicheaux, James Lee Burke brings back his popular hero Dave Robicheaux after five years battling a populist politician, a gangster with hollywood aspirations, and the bottle. It also deals with his violent Falstaff of a friend, Clete Purcel, and a rape accusation from the wife of a liberal novelist tied to the history of his confederate ancestors. It was an honor to ask Mr. Burke some questions about the book, his hero, and his take on the was we view the civil war. 1. D
