New York Times best-selling author James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux novels began with this first hard-hitting entry in the series. In The Neon Rain, Detective Robicheaux fishes a prostitute's corpse from a New Orleans bayou and finds that no one, not even the law, cares about a dead hooker. 'One of Burke's best.'-New York Times Book Review

I never got to read about a young Dave Robicheaux before! Finding "The Neon Rain" was such a treat. It explained so much of what I knew about Dave. James Lee Burke changes his style depending upon his subject. If he is writing about nature or love-making, he is poetic. I love his use of color. It is sometimes swirling and at other times striking. When he writes about pain or he is sharp and cutting. Will Patton narrates James Lee Burke's perfectly. He changes dialects, slurring appropriately or using a clipped tone. If I had not been hooked on the series already, "The Neon Rain" would have reeled me in.
