    >>> I am surprised that Burke keeps marrying off Dave R. as his wives
    keep getting knocked off while he's investigating crimes. I would have thought losing your wife violently once would be enough for any person bear, but then to kill the second and have him marry a third wife? That's stepping beyond the bounds of reality for me. But that's just my opinion.<<<

    Dave's first wife left him...prior to the first novel. Annie his second wife was "knocked off". Bootsie his third wife, as I understand it, succumbed to the disease she had carried throughout the series (lupus?). This happened off the page.

    Now he's on wife #4. But he's only lost the one violently, and only one of the deaths was actually covered in the books.
