    More than 2,000 men, women, and children are on board. Here on the first-class promenade is millionaire John Jacob Astor, who hopes his return from Egypt with his pregnant teen bride will invite a minimum of media attention. And here, in the third-class common room, a beautiful Lebanese refugee, on her way to family in Florida, discovers first love. And there in the distance, shrouded in darkness, an ancient iceberg lies patient, awaiting its encounter.

    The Baker - his tale about the rat with the crooked tail and the cook!

    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.

    S. Sand says: "The perfect combination of author and narrator"
    "Addicted to Will Patton and James Lee Burke"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Neon Rain again? Why?

    Yes - a perfection combination of story and storyteller. I wish all of Mr. Burke's books were available as read by Mr. Patton.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I can't get enough of Det. Robichaux and his side-kick, Clete Purcell. Truth be told, I'm a little in love with both of them!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Mr. Burke's descriptions of New Orleans and surroundings is magical. So magical, in fact, that my sister and I have booked a vacation there this December. You will find me sipping coffee and eating beignets at Cafe du Monde, waiting for Dave and Clete.
