Read full description of the books The Neon Rain:Detective Dave Robicheaux has fought too many battles: in Vietnam, with killers and hustlers, with the police brass, and the bottle. Lost without the love of his wife, Robicheaux's haunted soul mirrors the intensity and dusky mystery of the French Quarter of Louisiana - the place he calls home, and the place that nearly costs him his life when he becomes involved in the case of a young prostitute whose body is found in a bayou.
Read information about the authorJames Lee Burke is an American author best known for his mysteries, particularly the Black Cherry Blues in 1990 and Cimarron Rose in 1998.
Burke was born in Houston, Texas, but grew up on the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast. He attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the University of Missouri, receiving a BA and MA from the latter. He has worked at a wide variety of jobs over the years, including working in the oil industry, as a reporter, and as a social worker. He was Writer in Residence at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, succeeding his good friend and posthumous Pulitzer Prize winner John Kennedy Toole, and preceding Ernest Gaines in the position.
