Detective Elvis Cole and his partner Joe Pike go up against the New York mob while looking for the ex-wife and son of a Hollywood movie mogul. Non stop action and suspense.

Who doesn't love Elvis Cole? These Crais books are especially fun if you're from the LA area.

Man, this is good stuff. Quintessential private eye Elvis Cole takes on Hollywood on one coast and the mafia on another, and even Spenser couldn't do it better. Can't miss!

Crais is growing as a storyteller, best of the three in the series. The players are interesting as is the detecting dilemma, and it's fun seeing Elvis and Joe on the East Coast.

This is the first book I have read by this author and I thought the book started out slow, but after the first few chapters I couldn't put the book down. I will definitely read another book by this author.

My first experience with this author. I enjoyed the book more than I expected; the main character doesn't take himself too seriously and the supporting characters are well developed. It's more than fluff, but not so heavy (and depressing)as many mystery/action novels that are out there.

There is some violence, though except for one scene it is not over-described.

One small grumble: I don't quite understand the author's choosing to have the main female character hiss - not just once, but multiple times, usually when she was frustrated or irritated. Is the author a cat person? I'm female. I don't recall having hissed at all in at least the last 6 months. This female is like a leaky air mattress.

With respect to the audio format, each of the 5 cd's had about 85 tracks. One track every 45 seconds or so. That's great when I needed to jump back to hear what a character just said, but a real PITA if I need to stop the cd and then re-find where I was (usually about track 65). That's a lot of >> button pushing.

Highly enjoyable. Has Hollywood hotshots and Mafia dons and other colorful characters. Though I do like Crais' descriptions of Los Angeles, I really enjoyed the New England setting of most of the action and reading about how Elvis tailed the bad guys through New York City.

Another great Elvis Cole novel. These books get better and better with each installment. Silently intimidating Joe Pike makes another appearance too. In this story, Elvis travels to New York to fight the mob to first find a director's former wife and child and then to extract her from a situation with the mob. Pretty interesting story with good characters and fast plot.

Hollywood, and an erratic director, his millions and a missing wife makes this detective's job very dangerous

Hollywood's newest wunderkind is Peter Alan Nelsen, the brilliant, erratic director known as the King of Adventure. His films make billions, but his manners make enemies. What the boy king wants, he gets, and what Nelsen wants is for Elvis to comb the country for the airhead wife and infant child the film-school flunkout dumped en route to becoming the third biggest filmmaker in America. It's the kind of case Cole can handle in his sleep--until it turns out to be a nightmare. For when Cole finds Nelsen's ex-wife in a small Connecticut town, she's nothing like he expects. The lady has some unwanted--and very nasty--mob connections, which means Elvis could be opening an East Coast branch of his P.I. office...at the bottom of the Hudson River.

as usual the writer holds your attention all the way thru the book. Once started you don't want to set it down.

I liked this book. Again the author's sense of humor is just a little bit off, but not distracting. Character development is great and the workings of the mob mind is interesting. Quite a bit of violence.
