Praise for Flags on the Bayou: "[An] outstanding thriller.... Burke stitches plot threads and
historical details with ease, weaving it all into an urgent, propulsive story
steeped in his deep personal connections to Louisiana. This is masterful." - Publishers
(starred review)
Civil War comes to New Iberia, Louisiana, the capital of Burke's wondrous
fictional empire... [readers] may well agree that it's his most probing
examination of the enduring legacy of slavery... A grueling, compassionate
demonstration that 'the devil ain't down in a fiery pit. He's right here.'" - Kirkus
(starred review)
remarkable, beautiful, edgy, and haunting novel". - Booklist"A stunning work. Man's addiction to darkness and evil
is on horrific display, yet love's fierce light shines through the poorest of
souls. With a belief in God's grace and redemption, they demand the courage to
seek it, against all odds. Often I had to reread a sentence or paragraph,
smiling and shaking my head at the power of words assembled that evoke
emotional landslides no one creates like James Lee Burke. Get this now. It
will take you apart and heal you. Lord, what a magnificent book!"

- Nils Lofgren, Member of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with
Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band and Member of Neil Young's Crazy Horse Band
"James Lee Burke is an American icon, a writer of peerless
prose and unmatched depth, a storyteller who faces down the darkness and guides
us toward the glimmers of light. With Flags on the Bayou, he doesn't
back down from the horrors of American history, but brings to life those who
perpetuated unspeakable evil and those who fought nobly against it, reminding
us all that while the horrors may endure, so does the potential for grace,
beauty, and redemption."

- Michael
Koryta, New York Times bestselling author
"No one can word-sketch an eerily beautiful scene quite like
the living legend James Lee Burke, whether he's describing bloodred
bougainvillea dripping off ironwork in New Orleans or fog shrouding the
Mississippi. In his latest novel, Flags on the Bayou (Atlantic
Monthly Press), Civil War-era Louisiana provides the turbulent backdrop for a
murder accusation, skirmishes, blossoming love, and the specter of a storm over
the Gulf." - Garden & GunPraise for James Lee Burke: "James Lee Burke is the reigning champ of nostalgia noir." -
