In the Electric Mist with Confederate Dead*, by James Lee Burke

Was really enjoying this one, had been wanting to get the whole Robicheaux series read by my favorite reader Will Patton, starting with book 1.  But none of my libraries had the first 5 books, so I started with this one, book 6.

I enjoyed it from the start, but could not get over how short it was at just 3.5 hours (most audiobooks are 8 hours minimum).  Then I got to the end, and heard "we hope you've enjoyed this ABRIDGED..."

God Dammit.  This is the first time this has happened to me, I usually screen out abridged version but I was so excited to see Will Patton reading I skipped right over that abridged nonsense.  I hesitate to add this as a book I've read when I'm getting the readers digest version.

So I've added an asterisks to the title to note that it was abridged.  Oh well.

* -- Abridged, probably shouldn't count
