From the Inside Flap
"INGENIOUSLY STRUCTURED AND PLOTTED . . . [Lochte] returns for the second time to New Orleans and captures it to the last levee-sided beignet at dawn. In fact, Lochte has become one of its prime delineators."
--Los Angeles Times
A straight-shooting, no-nonsense P.I. like Terry Manion working for the king of ultratacky tabloid TV? Not exactly a match made in heaven. But when Manion gets the chance to reopen a thirty-year-old murder case involving his mentor, J. J. Legendre, he jumps at it. J. J. was still a cop on the New Orleans beat in 1965 when he busted volatile black militant leader Tyrone Pano for murder. Pano called it a frame-up, and Legendre believed him. Legendre finally cracked the case, but three decades later, it falls to Manion to pick up the pieces his teacher missed--and write the shocking ending to the whole sordid scenario. . . .
"THE NEON SMILE is Dick Lochte's magnum opus. . . . I couldn't put it down."
"Dick Lochte has a style of his own: giddy and gaudy on the outside, cynical and perverse under the skin."
--The New York Times Book Review
