A FORGOTTEN NAZI SUB BRINGS OLD HATREDS TO THE SURFACE They're out there, under the salt -- the bodies of German seamen who used to lie in wait at the mouth of the Mississippi for unescorted American tankers sailing from the oil refineries of Baton Rouge out into the Gulf of Mexico. As a child, Dave Robicheaux had been haunted by the sailors' images; then, as a young college student, he'd discovered one of their sunken subs while scuba diving. Years later, in a New Orleans populated by desperate hustlers and millennium - watchers of all stripes, Robicheaux, a detective with the New Iberia sheriff's office, finds himself and his family at serious risk, stalked for his knowledge of a watery burial ground by a mysterious man named Will Buchalter -- a man who believes that the Holocaust was one big hoax. A masterpiece of suspense, Dixie City Jam takes listeners deep into the human heart of darkness.

A FORGOTTEN NAZI SUB BRINGS OLD HATREDS TO THE SURFACE

A masterpiece of suspense, Dixie City Jam takes listeners deep into the human heart of darkness.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A standout in the diverting supporting cast is doom-predicting Brother Oswald, who employs a maddeningly roundabout manner of discourse.” Publishers Weekly
“Patton magnificently portrays the evil of the characters, with every word or description echoing the menace of their lives. He lets the violence roll through the story just as part of every day. His slow drawl, his slang and numerous accents come easily. The abridgment is a fair compromise of descriptive language and action, but is heavy on the violence.”  AudioFile
“Burke keeps it all fresh by never losing sight of the soft edges around his hard characters and by somehow being able to crank out a little extra lyricism at just the right moment.” Booklist
“[Burke] produces his darkest, densest novel yet.”  Kirkus Reviews
