I am looking for a novel or a series of novels about a detective/private eye living in New Orleans. He lives or works on Magazine Street, and hangs out at the Absinthe House. I think the book/s may have been written or set in the 1930s or '40s.

Do any of you know the title/s and/or author?

Thanks!

Could it be the series written by James Lee Burke, about Dave Robicheaux?

Saskia, if you're still looking, there were the Neal Rafferty novels by Chris Wiltz, including The Emerald Lizard. They were set in the modern day (then), the 1980s, though. She captured a lot of the city's essence.
