Now that I've made a case for plot, I'll move on to character. Which character in today's mystery writing would you most like to sit and talk with, listening to what he/she has to say about things? And conversely, which character would you most like to tell off if you had the chance to force him/her to listen to you?

Having just finished a Robicheaux saga, I totally agree. Clete needs to be slapped, and you're bigger than I am, so go for it. And Dave's wife is a saint.

To sit and talk with, probably Dave Robicheaux. He's been through a lot, and has learned from it. He faces and deals with his demons as well as any character currently ongoing. His gentle soul strives against his violent nature, with his intellect always involved.

It's hard to think of someone I'd like to tell off, because I usually don't read too much of a character if they irritate me that much. Closest would probably be another Burke creation, Clete Purcel, who keeps things from getting too easy for Robicheaux. Sometimes I just want to slap that boy. Good thing his heart is usually in the right place, and he truly cares for Dave.
