From two-time Edgar Award–winner and New York Times bestselling author James Lee Burke comes a thrilling novel—now available in ebook—that pits Dave Robicheaux against the worst opponent he’s encountered yet.

It’s out there, under the salt of the Gulf of Mexico, off the Louisiana coast—a buried Nazi submarine. Detective Dave Robicheaux of the New Iberia Sheriff’s office has known of its existence since childhood, when he was terrified by nightmares of the evil Nazi sailors just offshore. Then, as a teenager he stumbled upon the sunken sub while scuba diving—but for years he kept the secret of its watery grave.

But decades later, a powerful Jewish activist wants the sub raised, and Robicheaux’s knowledge puts him at the center of a terrifying struggle of conflicting desires. A neo-Nazi psychopath named Will Buchalter, who insists that the Holocaust was a hoax, wants to find the submarine first—and he’ll stop at nothing to get Robicheaux to talk.

With colorful characters, flawless plotting, and devilishly clever dialogue, Dixie City Jam is a spine-tingling suspense novel you won’t want to miss!

    Lots of extraneous commas Font is a poor choice. "Corner" reads "comer"; all rn look like m. Some misspelling and other grammatical errors. A re-editing would greatly improve it. Formatting is distracting.
  • This was published in 1994

    Great read. Just be careful. If you're a JLB fan, you may have forgotten you bought this one and buy it again because they're putting a 2014 published date on it. That's just the ebook publication date.

    An oldy, re-released, but still an awesome work. Even Burke's old stuff is superior to the new books being written by lesser authors. This one should have been proofed before it was released, but Lord, Burke can write! Descriptions beyond beautiful, poetic imagery & a tangled plot all corm together in one of Burke's best. Hope there's more new stuff on the way.
