James Lee Burke

James Lee Burke (born December 5, 1936) is an American author, best known for his Dave Robicheaux series. He has won Edgar Awards for ''Black Cherry Blues'' (1990) and ''Cimarron Rose'' (1998), and has also been presented with the Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America. The Robicheaux character has been portrayed twice on screen, first by Alec Baldwin (''Heaven's Prisoners'') and then Tommy Lee Jones (''In the Electric Mist'').

Wirt Williams, reviewing Burke's first novel, ''Half of Paradise'' (1965), in the ''New York Times'', compared his writing to Jean-Paul Sartre and Ernest Hemingway, but concluded "Mr. Burkes' literary forebear is Thomas Hardy."

Burke's 1982 novel, ''Two for Texas'', was made into a 1998 TV movie of the same name. Burke has also written five miscellaneous crime novels (including ''Two for Texas''), two short-story collections, four books starring protagonist Texas attorney Billy Bob Holland, four books starring Billy Bob's cousin Texas sheriff Hackberry Holland, and two books starring Weldon Avery Holland, grandson of legendary Texas lawman Hackberry Holland.
