The Neon Rain
by James Lee Burke

book cover image

A young sex worker's body lay in the bayou. Detective Dave Robicheaux has a sharp-eye on Big Easy criminals, but his battles with alcohol and post-traumatic stress challenge his good nature in solving this whodunit. Neon Rain is the first in James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux series.

Each month, a member of Brown Bag Mystery Readers nominates a mystery novel and leads a discussion. A librarian is on-hand to facilitate the book chat and to update the group with any news. All MI members are welcome to drop in to these meetings.
