The Book Club returns tonight and welcomes award-winning American thriller writer James Lee Burke with his latest book 'The Glass Rainbow'.

Simon Mayo with another edition of the Book Club. Tonight he welcomes author James Lee Burke who discusses his latest book 'The Glass Rainbow'. The story has eerie echoes of the BP oil spill that devastated the Gulf of Mexico in July 2010, and the petrochemical industry that dominates Louisiana's beautiful coastline looms large. As do the familiar themes of human greed and corruption. Who you gonna call to sort out the mess? There's only one man for the job as fans of James Lee Burke will know - Detective Dave Robicheaux.
