Just finished his Red Pony book on MT. Boy, is he a good writer. I never miss one of his. His daughter writes a good mystery also. It's interesting. In the Dave Robicheaux series, Dave sends his kid Alafair to Reed College in Portland, where I used to live. Turns out Burke's daughter is named Alafair and lives and writes about Portland. It was weird reading about happenings on streets I knew well.
