I personally only use neo-noir in reference to movies, i.e. movies that carry on the stylistic concerns of film noir or are strongly influenced by film noir and were made after approx. 1960. Outside of Woody's book I don't think I've seen neo-noir used to describe books rather than movie - so I'm afraid I'm not that much help there.
