Ex-Texas Ranger Billy Bob Holland makes his third appearance (after Heartwood and the Edgar Award-winning Cimarron Rose ) in James Lee Burke's dark, sorrowful, appropriately titled new novel, Bitterroot. This time out, Burke takes Holland out of the familiar environs of Deaf Smith, Texas, and moves him to Montana, where he becomes enmeshed in an interlocking series of brutal -- and brutalizing -- events. Ostensibly, Bill Bob Has come to Montana for an extended fishing vacation with long-time friend Tobin "Doc" Voss, a widowed Vietnam vet and a man of strong, if contradictory, principles. Voss, an impassioned environmentalist, has lobbied publicly against the incursions of a local mining corporation and has made some powerful enemies, a fact that becomes clear when a trio of drug-addled bikers are sent to rape and terrorize his teenaged daughter, Maisey. In the aftermath of that rape, the leader of the bikers is found burned to death in his bed. Doc, of course, emerges as the primary suspect, and finds himself arrested for premeditated murder. Billy Bob Holland's subsequent investigation begins with Maisey's rape and moves steadily outward, encompassing pedophilia, organized crime, right-wing extremism, and virtually every possible combination of personal and institutional corruption, all of which stand in stark contrast to the pristine, vulnerable beauty of the Montana landscape. Participants in this grim complex of narratives include an alcoholic mystery novelist, an embittered federal agent, a psychopathic ex-con with a very personal agenda, an undercover informant with a hidden motive for murder, and a local physician who has lost both her husband and son, and whose life has collapsed beneath her insupportable grief.

Tom Stechschulte's powerful narration adds depth to Burke's tightly controlled, richly poetic prose. He provides Holland with an authentic Texas twang, and his compelling voice easily changes from sarcasm to sorrow. Burke is a master storyteller, whether in the Dave Robicheaux series or here, with ex-Texas Ranger Holland. c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine. Book pak, Recorded Books, 2001.

Talk about Bitterroot

As usual, another great one by Burke. I can’t get enough. Billy Bob is such a likable character and I look forward to seeing who Lucas turns out to be. I don’t know why but Temple is not as likable to me. I would like to know if others feel the same. It isn’t a dislike but I just feel maybe neutral about her. The story is exciting and as always these books are hard to put down once started. My reviews of Burke always state.....once I have read a sentence or a paragraph I feel as though I have been touched by poetry. Now on to the next one.
I found that James Lee Burke, like Talon Stringham in Red Rock Redemption is a master of setting the scene. With a flick of his wrist, he paints the people, the surroundings, and every action, leaving no need for omniscient third person. There's no reason to read a person's mind when you can see the depth of their character in their sneers and gestures. The entire book is full of guilty parties, all different in purpose, but interconnected in their hatred for "the establishment" for lack of a better word. The result is a fast-paced book bursting with action, that you will have difficulty putting down.

It seemed that the ending was too easy, as if the page limit were almost up and the story had to be wound down quickly, but I won't elaborate, as you are probably wanting to read the book and that would ruin it for you.

Aside from that, I was slightly annoyed by the generous use of the word "and" in long descriptions when commas would have sufficed. The author was also a bit more graphic about sexual activities than I would have preferred.

But overall, this is an entertaining read. Fans of mystery, conspiracy, the whole western genre and even nature lovers will be caught up the action, the nuance and the gorgeous Montana countryside. (It makes me want to take a trip and even take up fly fishing.)
Just finished it. I just love the Billy Bob Series as much as the Robichaux series. Want to see more ! What makes me a James Lee Burke fan is not only the qualities or personalities of his main characters, although this plays an important part of what makes reading his books FUN. We get t know these guys and feel as though they are friends or acquaintances; people we know, like we know our neighbors or members of our families. But it goes much further than that. His secondary characters are equally well rounded; as well as his locales. We are familiar with New Iberia Parish as if we had actually been there. Same with Montana, which is now appearing in both series. Soon we might get to feel that way about West Texas - who knows?? But the thing that separates James Lee Burke from other crime fiction writers is the way he"gets into" his characters, scenes and situations.By describing events or setting up locales, he gets us to a level of understanding unequaled by any other writer. When you finished a book, we feel as if we have learned something important about life in general.
The Montana Chamber of Commerce would probably rather that this story had been put in another setting. We don't think of Montana as being a haven for mobsters, pedophiles, neo-Nazis and others given to abherrant behavior, but Bitterroot Valley seems to have them in fair abundance. Also there to stir up the pot are an undercover ATF operative named Sue Lynn Big Medicine, an alcoholic mystery writer, his cokehead actress wife, and in the center, stirring the pot for all that it is worth are Tobin "Doc" Voss a pacifist - turned Navy SEAL - turned poet - turned physician and his friend Billy Bob Holland who has had quite a career as well (Houston cop, Texas Ranger, Phoenix US Attorney and now a private attorney from Deaf Smith, Texas).
Doc's daughter is raped and eventually Doc is charged with murdering one of the suspects. Billy Bob agrees to represent him. However, don't get ready for any court room scenes, because this plays out in a convulted fashion in which scores are settled and people get what they deserve.
Well crafted dialogue is a strength of the author, James Lee Burke, and he outdoes himself in this book. The discussions between Billy Bob and the local sherrif, J.T. Cain are something to look forward to.
This book will hook you as you try to figure out what is going to happen next and with all of the characters twisting through the book there is a lot happening. James Lee Burke has been awarded two Edgars in the past for hit literary efforts. I'm not sure this one will rise to that level, but is definitly worth your time.
Mr. Burke is truly an artist with words. Whether in Louisiana with Dave Robichieux or Montana with Billy Bob Holland, Mr. Burke's descriptions of place, events, villains, victims, laymen is truly as artistic as any of the works of Michelangelo or any of the other masters. His way with words belies the violence that surrounds Billy Bob in this masterful tale of vengeance on the part of nearly all the players involved. A wonderful book.
Mr. Burke did a good job with the characters in this book using the Billy Bob Holland as the Dave Robicheau from the previous books he's written. He always projects plenty of suspense and mixes it up just enough to keep you guessing the next move, and sometimes you get a surprise. This book was sure enjoyable.
Burke writes the same book over and over. He painstakingly builds a villian so awful and a situation so bad the only choice left to the "good" guy is to kill the evil guy. Could be so much more interesting if "justice" could be served in more interesting ways.
I was hoping this would be as good as his Dave Robicheaux novels but it is not. The characters do not seem real, the story is disjointed, he seems more interested in writing about the scenery and it jumps around with too many subplots. With the Robicheaux novels I couldn't wait to get back to them, with this book I keep wondering why I am picking it up again. Sorry James Lee, but this really didn't hit the mark for me.
