    Willy Patrick, the author of the Caldecott-winning young-adult novel In the Night Room, thinks she is losing her mind again. Two weeks before her second marriage, on her way home one day, Willy is drawn into the parking lot of a warehouse. Knowing that her daughter, Holly, is being held in that building, she wants to rescue her. But what she knows is impossible, for her daughter is dead.

    Paul says: "In the night room"
    "Plodding and hard to follow"
    Overall

    This story dragged and was hard to follow in its own right. The narrator's inflectionless reading makes it even worse. Save the credit.

    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"
    "Hard understand and follow"

    Has The Neon Rain turned you off from other books in this genre?

    This is second Dave Robicheau Novel I have tried and I have not liked either one. Normally I like this genre but apparently not James Lee Burke.


    What didn???t you like about Will Patton???s performance?

    Mr. Patton's Cajun accent slurs to the point of incomprehension his

    This was different take on urban fantasy held my attention from the opening lines. The reader gave very good performace of the story. I would recommend it to anyone who likes characters like Harry Dresden or Felix Castor.

    Story

    When his brief, passionate romance with nurse Jocelyn Banks is cut short by her kidnapping and brutal murder, Dr. Jeremy Carrier is left emotionally devastated, haunted by his lover's grisly demise and warily eyed by police still seeking a prime suspect in the unsolved slaying. To escape the pain, he buries himself in his work as staff psychologist at City Central Hospital, only to be drawn deeper into a waking nightmare when more women turn up murdered in the same gruesome fashion as Jocelyn Banks.

    Eric says: "Interesting"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    Generally I enjoy Kellerman's novels. This one is so slow and plodding, I kept checking to see what the book was supposed to be about. I reads like a beginning writers first attempt at a mystery. Save your credits for a better book.
