Book Review: The Neon Rain by James Lee Burke

The Neon Rain by James Lee Burke

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Narrated by Will Patton
Length:8 hrs and 22 minutes is addictive! Especially when they have sales!

Publisher's Summary

"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."

Will Patton gave Robicheaux that Micky Spilane type voice of a gruff, tough, hard bitten cop, while James Lee Burke words gave the detective intelligence and doggedness. This is a cop who still "gives a damn" about all victims when others, do not.

Na'alens (New Orleans, for those who have not heard the natives) is characterized as a multifaceted city.

Put these two main characters together with a murder and you are in for mystery fun!
