"Using a first-person narrator is simply a matter of hearing the voice inside yourself." -- James Lee Burke
James Lee Burke (born December 5, 1936) is an American author of mysteries, best known for his Dave Robicheaux series. He has won an Edgar Award for Black Cherry Blues (1990) and Cimarron Rose (1998).
