Los Angeles, 3:58 a.m.: Elvis Cole recieves the phone call he's been waiting for since childhood. Responding to a gunshot, the LAPD has found an injured man in an alleyway. He has told the officer on the scene that he is looking for his son Elvis Cole. Minutes later, the man is dead.
Haunted throughout his life by a lack of knowledge about his father, Elvis turns to the one person who can help him navigate the minefield of his past-his longtime partner and confidant, Joe Pike. Together with hard-edged LAPD detective Carol Starkey (who is harboring her own growing feelings for Cole), they launch a feverish search for the dead man's identity. Elvis, meanwhile, struggles between wanting to believe he's found his father at last allowing his suspicions to hold him back. With each long-buried clue they unearth, a frightening picture begins to emerge about who the dead man might have been-and the terrible secret he's been guarding.
Very entertaining and suspenseful.

Crais is every bit as good as the classic noir writers. Yes, as good as Chandler and Hammett. If you like your mysteries blended with some memorable prose this is the guy for you.

Definitely did not expect this book's plot to unfold the way it did. Great storytelling with everything neatly wrapped up at the end.

Typical Robert Crais - Excellant - He writes a story that holds you to the last page..

P.I. Elvis Cole has never known his father. So when he is told by police that a murder victim's last words were that he is his father, he naturally starts investigating. The more clues Cole discovers, the more he becomes convinced that the murdered man is not related to him. But why would he say, how would he know that Cole has been searching for his father all his life?

Someone else is also looking for the victim, who apparently disappeared a few days before his death without letting anyone know. That person is on a collision course with Cole.

I really liked this book: good story, well-drawn characters. It kept me guessing until the end.

Great bonus with this book- it is an authentic autographed copy and, as usual, another excellent outing by Robert Crais and the World's Greatest Detective, Elvis Cole.
