    > Regarding James Lee Burke's Swan Peak, I found the novel to be chock full of angst. In addition, It seems that the Dave Robicheaux is unable to converse except in an obtuse fashion, never saying it straight out. I gave up after 80 pages.Is it just me?Terry Sanford

    I struggled to finish books by James Lee Burke, Michael Connelly and James Ellroy and never picked up another book by any of them. Not to my taste. Why settle for mediocre writers when there are so many great writers to be read--both past and present?
