The Neon Rain: A Dave Robicheaux Novel (Dave Robicheaux Mysteries)

The Neon Rain  - James Lee Burke Gripping and raw. The lead character wears his scars (psychological mostly) on his heart and finds that stepping into an hornet's nest and doing the right thing is not the way to live a long and secure life in New Orleans.Robicheaux keeps you reading, you want to see what happens and how he will end up on the other side of the tunnel at the end. Burke doesn't cheat the reader. Set in the dark underbelly world of bad guys, drug trafficking lords of New Orleans, it's raw, bleak but you keep reading because it grabs you and doesn't let go until the last word.
