    voice in TIN ROOF BLOWDOWN took some getting used,

    I thought he handled those shifts in POV masterfully. And I liked Tin Roof Blowdown, but it could have been so much more in my opinion. About halfway through the book, it seemed to shift from a story about this cast of characters struggling in the aftermath of the disaster to a typical Robicheaux story with him chasing down one of Burke's typical psychopaths. The first half of the book is much more interesting...though the denouement was pretty powerful stuff, too.
