A complex story that begins with Robicheaux accidently discovering the body of a young woman while boating. Unraveling the story leads him to wrestle with his own devil's left over from Vietnam and alcoholism.
It doesn't seem as if it is destined to become a series yet it does. It leaves me wondering about Burke's own background, how he knows some of the things he does and to wonder what demons he had wrestled with. ( )

The evening sky was streaked with purple, the color of torn plums, and a light rain had started to fall when I came to the end of the blacktop road that cut through twenty miles of thick, almost impenetrable scrub oak and pine and stopped at the front gate of Angola penitentiary.

Neon Rain opens in New Orleans where we meet Cajun Dave Robicheaux, a lieutenant in the New Orleans Police Department. A recovering alcoholic and Vietnam vet, he lives on a houseboat on Lake Pontchartrain. He's been called up to Angola Federal Prison to meet a man on death row who has requested his visit. He's been arrested by Dave over the years and wants to let him know that he's heard there is a contract out on Dave's life. Apparently Dave found the body of a young black prostitute floating in the bayous while he was out fishing one day. Dave is surprised because he's not interested in the case and has just assumed the woman drowned. His feelings change once he discovers his life is in jeopardy so he and his partner, Clete Purcel, begin their own investigation. This leads them to a conspiracy of graft and corruption that spreads into the dark alleys of New Orleans famous French Quarter and into a world filled with drug lords and gangsters that may be connected to the highest levels of the U.S. Government.

Neon Rain is the beginning of a first rate, “hard boiled” detective series. There’s a lot of brutality in this story and some fairly extreme violence. The author really brings us to Louisiana with his atmospheric descriptions of New Orleans and the mysterious bayous and different lifestyles of the region. I've read a couple other Dave Robicheaux books over the years and while I don't think this was the very best one, it does introduce us to some really interesting characters. I'm not sure when I stopped reading the series but I'm definitely planning to pick them up again.

A Twitter pal talked me into starting these books and I'm glad she did.

My husband and I went on a trip to New Orleans in 1995, (so pre-Katrina), and I loved it. To this day it was the best vacation we ever had and the very best food I ever ate. We went shortly after Mardi Gras and it was warm and beautiful. We visited the zoo and botanical gardens, had lunch on the banks of the Mississippi, rode a street car through the garden district and had dinner in the French Quarter.

This book took me back there completely. Not to the touristy areas though-not at all.

The writing here is top notch, and the characters are complicated-nothing is black and white. I developed a real feeling for Dave Robicheaux and I am looking forward to reading more of the series.

I bought this audio with my hard earned cash through Audible, (but I won't be buying the second one from them! See below)

**A note to Audible-What is up with the severely abridged version of the audio for book 2? It's only 3 hours long and many reviews are complaining about that. Looks like I'll be doing some actual reading on the second book. ** ( )

This is the first book in the Dave Robicheaux series. I decided to read this series in order as much as possible. I got this book from Overdrive. This tells the story of Dave's time with the New Orleans Police Department. Its a Very Good Start to the Book and enjoyed it very much. Looking forward to the rest of the series. ( )
